Good luck here.
It's great to resurrect an old model and bring it back to life, particularly when it has sentimental value too.

Roy.

Phil

Credit to you on this one.

That is quite a task to break a kit down like this but should be well worth the effort to bring it up to an improved state.

Hope it all goes well for you.

Tony

Good luck and I'll be watching! Cool ThumpUp

Phil

It all seems to be pulling apart ok.

I think you were saying you made this many years ago so is that disassemble due to the glues used at that time do you think.

Remember that old airfix/britfix from years ago they called "cement" it never really melted and welded the plastic as the newer glues tend to.

You could squeeze a joint - not always meaning to- and the whole model would come apart.

Hope it continues well.

Tony

Yes i think you are right about the glue TonyBlink as there didn`t seem to be glued in parts Blink and it easily sands off and comes away BigGrin regards PhilCool

Nice progress Phil and great to see an old model being refurbished rather than just being thrown in the bin. Well done you for giving it a go.

Hope it turns out well for you. Cool ThumpUp
