Airfix Thatched Cottage Completed

It has taken some time to paint because of all the wood beams. However today I finished painting my first Airfix cottage since the early 70s.


I have tried to match the colours from the box lid.



I have another 2 of these kits and country church still to do.

Very nostalgic.

As a young wargamer I had several of these which were used for everything from WW2 to Acw via Napoleonics .

Anda lovely job of it you have done too. I had one in the 1960s that was used so much until it fell apart!

That’s a lovely piece of real estate Mark....

I wonder how many of these Airfix sold over the years?

They are still available today ... from Dapoll...

All the best. Aly
