This is my grandson Brandon's first build and he has done a great job with only a little help from me. It is the Airfix 1/48 harrier. He built it and painted it.

As you can see from his smile he is very happy with it.

Hi Brandon
That looks great. You should feel very proud. I remember my first model although I was about 50 years older than you are when I made it. Maybe grandad will treat you to another kit.

Thanks Guys I really appreciate the comments and I will pass them on to Brandon. When I took him home he didn't even say hi to his dad he just stuffed the model under his nose and said look at this I have had comments from grandads model site lol. I'm glad he enjoyed it as he does have problems concentrating for any length of time but he was quite happily sitting there building . Hopefully he will stick with it.

Yet another dynamic duo!
Top work Brandon - and well done to Grandad for managing to keep his mitts off the build!

Brandon, my first model, built way back in the early '60's was that bad, I shot it to pieces with an air gun, where as yours, young man looks good enough to go on a shelf for all to see.

Well done, and here's to your next build.... :thumb2:
