Airfix 1/72 scale
World Airfix Group Build Part Two
by Christopher Brown
Airfix's 1/72 scale Lockheed Hudson Mk.I is available online from Squadron.com
In Part One of this short series, we showed the build of the Airfix Lockheed Hudson by a team of enthusiasts on the Airfix Group Build during 2009. The World Airfix Group Build aimed to bring us all closer together by sending one kit around the world and presenting it to Airfix at Scale Modelworld 2009.
The Group Build quickly expanded to include a diorama base featuring tarmac, support vehicles, figures and even a super set of wheel chocks.
In this installment, we show how all these were completed and the final model assembled and presented to Darrell Burge and Trevor Snowden of Airfix.
In the following images we showcase they work by:
Peter Mortlock, England, Base
Warren Morris "Woz", Wales, AEC Tanker
Chris Hall, England, Bedford Refueller / figures
Dave Lochead, NZ, Wheel chocks
Spencer Pollard, England, Final assembler/presenter
A three part series of articles with contributions from all participants is currently appearing in Model Aviation World.
The World Airfix Group Build was highly enjoyable and successful and attracted some very kind comments from participants and observers alike. We hope that it inspires others to take on a similar challenge and hope they enjoy it as much as we all did!
