ISTR a while back that Revell was bringing back the old Matchbox PB4Y-2 Privateer; has anyone built it? I have the old Matchbox one (I've been meaning to build it, but real life has gotten in the way, but plan to), so are there any differences? TIA.
Sure --- it's even on the shelves of Yodobashi Camera in Japan :-) But I won't buy it---I had (maybe still have, back home) the old Matchbox kit, bought corrected cowls & a set of vacuform canopies, I think even some other stuff like tyres, and then never built it.... bah!
Yeah, that's right, I remember. I bought for the B-25 at the same time, will use on the Italeri kit later this winter (pieces washed after years sitting in a box slowly covering in dust).
Um, I think this sucker bought those too :-) It's possible I sold the whole lot off cheaply to someone at our local club before I moved to Japan. That would have been the best way for it to have gone. Can't imagine what it would do now---slowly degrade in the outside room back home.
Likewise. I remember how pissed off I was when my club back in Kyoto decided to do a 1/32-scale "year theme".... :-)
