Matilda and I – a relationship rekindled.

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.

Built for a GB on another forum – this is the sordid 'kiss and tell' details:

Thanks for looking.

Thanks very much mate, although I think you'll find that I rarely do anything quietly. :D
The kits are just a bit of a sideshow at the moment as I'm working on another scratch project. :)
