Douglas Boston Mk IV in 1/72...

...a Diecast Model by Hobby Master

As a modeller, is there enough time to actually build examples of all the models you would like to?  The answer for so many of us is that we have a loft, or cupboards, stacked with boxes of unbuilt kits.  So, the potential answer might be to join in the interests of a different group of collectors, and consider the ready built market of diecast models.  This one is made by Hobby Master, who are producing some super models.

The model comes in a smart blue box, the top of which folds open to reveal a clear plastic panel so you can see the model itself without having to take it out of the box, ideal for shop displays of course.  The basic airframe is ready built and with super quality satin paint finish.  It is a lovely model and the quality of diecast models is so good in comparison to what I remember of diecasts when I was young.  If you have not checked out these Hobby Master diecasts I would happily suggest they are well worth doing so.

This Boston Mk IV serial BZ405, served with 88 Sqn of the RAF. Very neatly finished, just the pilot to pop into the cockpit and choose between undercarriage down or up. A display stand is included within the packaging.

I bought mine through Tiger Hobbies here in the UK.
