Flying Scotsman build.

Postby glencairn » Mon Jan 16, 2017 8:43 pm

You know when you receive a gift from a member of the family and they ask "How is it coming along?" Well such a gift arrived at Christmas. Not that I wanted Santa to deliver it, nor wanted to refuse it. Anyway a card model of the Flying Scotsman was in my Christmas stocking.

As the said family member is 'asking have I done it', here I am starting the build.

On your marks, get set.....go! :lol:

Does it build in a similar way to a Metcalfe kit Glencairn?

As it is all in card and going to be static unfortunately no Romford wheels.

As no glue is required I am hoping it will be easier. :)
