Modeling? No, really.

This is suppose to be a blog mainly about modeling.  However, there hasn’t been a modeling related post in almost a month.  Well, that ends with this post.

Recently, for some reason, I’ve gotten an urge to build a 72nd scale DeHavilland Chipmunk.  This is an Airfix kit from back in the late 60s or early 70s.  I picked it up at the Huntsville show last fall.  I am  not sure why I want to do this one, especially since I have at least 15 other half built projects sitting in the model room.  Not only do I want to build the kit, I want to go whole hog adding details and tricking it out.

Here is the kit.

Here is the back of the kit with the markings options.  I won’t be doing either of these, especially since the decals have to be about 40 years old.
