I've got the 22" one sitting in my stash, waiting it's turn.
A great design from the Anderson camp.

It is the same as the airfix kit from the '70's.

It started off as a kit issued by Fundiemension in 1975. Its been reboxed and updated a few times by airfix, then it was issued under the amt/ertl brand, and its latest incarnation is under the Mpc brand.

Its a kit that really has proved popular over the years and i know in "lean" times when its not been an available kit they go for crazy prices on the likes of ebay.

I still remember getting one of these as a birthday present when i was 12 and can still remember how thrilled i was to get this one.

Hope you have lots of fun building yours and hope it brings back lots of happy memories for you.

How did you find your ordering go with Shapeways Phil? Did you haver any problems or delays?

Asking as there is a small part i would not mind ordering from them but never used them before so bit unsure.

The replacement feet look very good by the way.
