This was the first model I ever built. I got it as an Easter present when I was 5. I finally identified it a year or so ago when I was reading a book on Aurora.

I've been looking every once and a while, but no joy.

Good question.

I need to pull the trigger on mine.

I think I've gotten to the point with resin I can handle this one.

I have managed to obtain most of the ones I have ever wanted.
One that my dad built when I was real small.
A car kit he built when I was 8 or 9. Have that kit all packed away.
A Monogram Deusenberg kit he also built back before I got started building models.
A slew of 1/72 X series lifting bodies (HL10, M2F2/3, X-24 A and B and the early NM-9 flying wing) Also the Rare Planes Bell XFM-1 Airacuda.

The one kit (a garage kit) I have been wanting since the November Fine Scale Modeler has been this:






While I have a line on one, it is making me pause and ponder quite a bit. This is a real rare casting and has been OOP for a while. It is also considered the best figure ever done of the character. :bangs head :bangs head :bangs head

Thanks Saul - then I need to add postage to 'Middle Earth' on top of it (assuming the seller will post it here in the first place), so.... :bangs head

Amazingly I have none, at least in kits that have already been released. For years it was a resin Bv 138 in 1/48 but at this point in life the last thing I want is a large and involved resin kit.
