This looks like the right place..... :?

I have an unbuilt, 'as new' Speedline 1/24th scale K7 kit. Looking for advice or suggestions.

I bought it many years ago, not quite realising what sort of kit it was :( Hmmm... And the reports on this thread only confirm what I thought - it isnt the greatest kit.... :x

So, what to do.... Rather than just leave it on a shelf in my garage. Much as I would love a K7 model, I don't think this is the one, for me (sorry, Speedline...)

Would anyone on here be interested in taking it on...? Or... shall I just 'bin it', as a mistake....?

Thanks... :)

Really - £100...? But surely Speedline still sell them...?

OK, will do - eBay.... :D

It really makes no sense why they sell so well on eBay, I even considered buying some from Speedline to resell :D

Wow... :o Gotta love eBay, sometimes. Makes zero sense, but ....

Assuming I succeed, in selling mine, I think the proceeds should be fed back into the BBP somewhow.... :P
(Would pay for a few trips up to Bills, place, I think.)

Thanks,

I have one of those models too - someone gave it to me years ago but I'm not one for making models. I'll sculpt from scratch or tinker on with the real thing but model kits just aren't my thing so if anyone wants it just say.

Dashboard now completed for my 1:5 scale model. Could not quite get it all to line up as well as I would have liked, but does not look bad
