Bluebird & Other Scale Models

It does look sad ripping it to bits but glass half full, I'm sure it will look amazing when done, you just don't see 64 versions.

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

Hi Al, I do like a good looking rear end,'what A shame you're taking a saw to it, have you not considered making a new canopy for the 64 version & keeping this?
