things to do in the summer holidays (part1)

It felt like it was all of about 10 minutes after we got back home from our summer hols before boys1&2 were moaning about what they could do next, and they haven't really stopped since.....So I've been putting some effort into thinking up new things for them to do other than sitting in front of the TV.  So far we 've been to every park within 10 miles, climbed Tors, been to see Dartmoor standing stones rows, been to Lydford Gorge, and done 2 lovely bike rides but on days like today when the weather is not great we need something a little different. So thank god for airfix kits - I can sit between the tow boys whilst they both have a go at making these iconic boys toys.  This morning we had a Spitfire and a Messerschmitt done in about 30 minutes (followed by 2 hours of dogfighting in the garden).  In tribute to "the few" Lunchboxesetc produce this fantastic spitfire lunchbox:

 available in 6 colours and which is not only great for a packed lunch but is perfect for keeping your model making kit together in one safe place.
