I love to see these old kits getting built. I know a lot of people (not on this forum) poo poo the old kits as being past it, inaccurate and badly detailed but they are the heritage that this fine hobby is based on and deserve respect. Have fun bringing it to life.

Brings back some very happy memories of rainy Sunday afternoons as a kid. I'd be about 10 at the time and I built a few of these. Loved the panthers and tigers. Look forward to your build and I'm sure I must have one of these somewhere.

Looking forward to this one, this is one of the kits i can clearly remember getting and building as a child. I wont say when, but it was a fairly new tool at the time.

wheres the fun in doing a shake and bake kit that you dont have to put in a bit of work and thought?
