Being a newbie here, I thought I might add my twopennorth. Airfix kits are far better these days than the old days of the seventies when you had to hack off great lumps of flash and find moulding marks with one pound lumps of milliput. Detailing is far better, and for the price, not a bad kit.
May I add a +1 to the ARRSE modelling pages. There is some STUNNING stuff in there. It seems you not only buy the plastic modelnowadays, but then buy a set of 'posh' very detailed brass parts to finish the kit off.
Have a look....https://www.arrse.co.uk/community/threads/military-modelling.62648/unread
Also look for the specific models being made. Those pages are keeping me quiet for hours!
