Hi this is Thunderbolt 2 I really didn't mean to ruffle any feathers was just looking for opions. I too have monogram kits and some are ok kits. Is their any american kit makers that make good kits like tamya, hase,? I just got the Monogram kit 1/48 B-17.

No there isnt really any kit maker's that are on par with Tamiya and Hasegawa in the U.S, not any that I know of anyway. If your looking for a better B-17 kit your not going to find one because Revell-Monogram is the only one that makes these kits in that size and for their age they are still pretty damn good.

It still is, or is again.

Great models. They are the only company I've seen actively participate in this forum. Others may listen? But, they don't participate. I think Accurate Miniatures deserves our support for that reason alone.

I thought it was a bit silly for some people to get so fired up over this matter.Wink [;)]

I wish monogram could do some more reworking of their molds. The B-17G kit, for example, has been improved, but it could use a lot more work. I know it costs a lot of money to do this and yadda yadda yadda... but I think it could be done given the popularity of the kit.

I couldn't agree more that Monogram/Revel could greatly benefit by re-working some of their old molds. It would take tooling $, but a minimum of engineering time and they would sell like hotcakes.
