Found this program on youtube,

http://youtu.be/zID8rnZcshs

James may delves in to the toy cupboard to find some of his favorite toys from the 60's and 70's and then builds a mega project with the toy.

In this episode he revisits Airfix and eventually builds a 1/1 airfix model. I dare you not to like this program.

also does one on meccano

I love James Mays' toy stories. The other episodes are worthwhile as well like the legohouse, the 16 mile scaletrain set and the 1:1 scalextric recreation of the goodwood circuit. But I loved the airfix episode s well. Pretty funny when they roll out the 1:1 airfix spitfire out of that hangar in front of those veterans
