I picked this up for £3.00 last month. Having built one in a Blitzbau back in 2010 I should be able to get this done in 6 weeks. :grin:

Nice, the Tunnan is a great quirky machine that I rather like. I never knew Airfix put one out though - I wonder if it's a re-pop of another company's tooling?

6 weeks - I reckon you could Blitz that in about 6 hours Tim. Look forward to this as I've never built a Tunnan yet, but the shape of the aircraft is growing on me these days!

Shaun - It's a re-pop of the Heller kit.

Al - the last one I built took 19 hours so I should have more than enough time for this one.

Yes, it's the Heller one. I'm making another one elsewhere on this GB. Sweet kit actually.
