When I was young (I'm sure there must have been a time) I wasn't fussed about tanks. They pretty much all looked the same to me.
And then I met Matilda, Airfix Matilda, to give her full name, and it was love at first sight.
She's all grown up now – 1/48 (!) and changed her name to Tamiya, but she's still the same sweet Matilda, although a lot less flash than she was in her youth.
It was a brief only six days of my life, but six days I will never forget –well... not until the end of next week anyway.

Thanks for looking.
