By way of a change, this was my most recent selection from the stash; I've always looked at it, and then the Airfix version and thought 'well, the Revell won't be up to much' :shock:
To be fair, it's a very nice kit that goes together well and looks the part overall. It has faults, which I'll eave to others more handy at rivet counting than I (although the mahoosive machine guns do look a bit rubbish ;-) ) but nothing that makes it look silly in my book.

I've taken a few liberties with the scheme although this in a small part is based on a little research which shows that not all MTBs had two-tone grey hulls etc.. I also decided that she was an early war example, whose captain didn't want to cover the deck planking in Admiralty Grey, hence the wooden deck :grin:

Looks OK to me ... the Revell offering is a reasonable kit and in some ways is better than the airfix one... one kit is an early, the other late war, and they both offer much scope for aftermarket and scratch improvement.
