Airfix Light Utility

Lovely wee kit this, shame the engineering was not quite up to scratch though :(

Should have painted it 'on sprue' but started dry fitting parts and before I realized it was complete 

As you can see the door frames do not line up well with the rest of it

Likewise with the canopy, leaving quite a gap

Still, an excellent addition to my British collection, these served in all theatres of WW2 from start to finish.


  1. Interesting idea to have a fully clear door part. Will possibly avoid fogging entirely.

  2. I see what you mean, nice all the same.

  3. good result with not-so-good raw material.
    why don't you try to use some putty to fill in the gaps between pieces before painting?
    i normally do, and i think it works.
    hope to be useful.

  4. Thanks lads, will try your suggestion Luca, taking my time a bit more would probably help too
