I have just completed this as part of the Golden Oldies GB, it's a great kit for its age, I can full recommend it to anyone.

Excellent result, Alan and nicely displayed. I know from reading your GB entries that a fair amount of work has gone into this pair but it's time well spent IMHO.

Cheers guys, if I see another going cheap I might be attempted to have a go at making a Bloodhound Mk2, the missile would need stretching and the base scratch building.

As the Mk2 used a side loader to load the missile onto the launcher I could also ditch the LR :shock: and use more modern support vehicles this would make the conversion easier :-D
