It seems that Airfix have classed these kits as OO, 1:72, and 1:76 scales over the years!

Airfix Bloodhound Missile Set.
With SWB 88" Series 1 or 2 canvas top Land Rover.

1:72 scale

Collectors have a lot to answer for! 

I tend to prefer the James May approach.  Buy a very expensive perfectly boxed collectors item plastic kit, rip it open and build it!!

0261 even the barb wire is an 00 product

IMG_0261.jpg 

loads of stuff perfect for

1. enactment days at railway stations, something I know Goathland does

2. for an air museum, which could allow railway track and modern items nearby, allowing a mix of eras 🙂

3. for an older era 

4. and I do not know about you, but I have seen a small tank whizzing up the motorway, obviously an old now privately owned, and seen 2 massive tank out by the road side one by a house and one by a petrol station, enthusiasts everywhere. The other half wanted a tank until I stated 4 gallons to the mile was not viable, I do not think he has given up on the idea just yet, just looking for an excuse, his beloved forces motorbike no where near big enough 😃
