Readers’ Gallery: Mike Reader’s 1/72 Matchbox Supermarine Stranraer

Agape forum member Mike Reader posted these pics of a must unusual aircraft. It looks really awesome Mike- thanks for sharing!

This is the Supermarine Stranraer,  from the same people who bought us the Spitfire. In fact it was designed by the Spitfire designer, R. J. Mitchell. This is the old Matchbox kit,  painted in a Nova Scotia Squadron colours of all white, after I saw a painting of it on the Web which I thought was unusual. I added a wooden display base, and the rigging was just good old fishing line.

If you would like to write a build report for, please download this template, which includes suggestions on format, photos, etc. Any scale model kit- even if it's already been done on the site before- is fair game.

Thanks for your support and prayers!
