John’s expedition: 1/12th scale French foreign legionnaire

Our glorious leader recently went to Stockton-On-Tees (which is far, far away) bidding at an Airfix kit auction and picking up some lovely art….. but then he spotted this fellow.

Having read all that is available about Airfix kits past and present, he was amazed to see this 1/12th scale French foreign legionnaire.

Some facial damage to the paint mind you, he has been in the sun for 40 years!!

It was assembled and painted and was, in fact, the master model maquette to show a kit that was planned but never released. A truly special addition to a man’s Airfix collection!
