Revell-Matchbox 1:32 Sea Venom Vampire NF: Complete

Well here we are Ladies and gents progress to date on my Sea Venom! I’m around 90 percent complete got a few things to add and some touch ups to be done. I’m really happy with the build it was easy not to complicated and the fit is pretty darn good, as long as you take your time and work through the assembly process. I do recommend that you follow the instructions when it comes to building and installing the engine as it really only goes together best in the order they would have you do it. I tried a couple of times to step outside this process to provide a flat mating surface only to find that intakes wont fit through the plate once assembled. (So much for that idea!) The engine goes together well with a minimum of fuss and it seems to set up pretty darn well. (Well at least mine did) I really like these old Matchbox kits they were a no frills easy build and they remind me of a simpler time when I built them as a young adult. (Mind you if you talk with my children I was apparently never young and my wife complains she has three kids, me being the biggest!)

Okay I’ve got the rest of the last bits and pieces done, I’ve added the stores, aerials and landing light lens. I’ve sealed the decals in with a gloss varnish and she looks ready for action! Now where do I display her? Not really my era, anyone got a home for a DH Sea Venom in 1/32 scale?

Happy modelling
