Harry is an 8 year old boy who has found a real fascination for History after starting to learn about WWI and WWII at school. After a recent visit to The Shuttleworth Collection, he found an Airfix Quickbuild kit in the gift shop. It was a Spitfire, it was easy enough to complete on his own (nearly!) and this has started a whole new hobby...fast forward to now and he has asked to have a small area to showcase his models!  
He would love for other children to share their builds too, so if you are a budding modeller of any skill level, please get in touch as we would love to feature you here and maybe even in the magazine itself!  
My first build was this Airfix Quickbuild Spitfire, I found it fairly easy although I did have to ask my Mum to help me chop a bit off that wouldn't quite fit.  
I laid the instructions out on the table with all of the pieces and put the sticker sheet to one side for later.  
After I had assembled the aircraft, I then positioned all of the stickers carefully.  
I really enjoyed building this model and decided that my next build was to be the Challenger tank!  
Watch this space... 
Please email harry@skyhighpastimes.com if you have any questions.  
Please note this email address is not monitored by Harry, however, he is actively involved and very excited about this page!  
When submitting an image of your child's model build, please make sure that it is just the model build itself in the photo.
