Matchbox 1/72 scale

by Orlando Rueda


Here I'm showing a 1/72th Swordfish from Matchbox, which was built four years ago. In that time I tried to get the best reference I could, and three years later Tamiya issued the same plane with transparent fuselage in 1/48.

I like to work on simple kits, like these, or Lindberg.. etc, which it's worthwhile for most modelers, however I think that is a good thing to have simple models where you can add all those details you want.

I guess that it really doesn't exist a bad brand, perhaps some of them need more patience from us...don't they?. Maybe models like those from Pegasus are out of this context.

I hope you can enjoy these photos.
