Another classic for the shelf.  1/72 F8F Bearcat wearing Starfighter Decals.  Markings are for an aircraft stationed at China Lake in the early Fifties.

Here's grandpappy. 1.48 Monogram Lightning built by my dad when Nixon was president, around 1972. Anyone got one built earlier?

Wow M-vol . . .   That is a Grand-daddy !

I may have built a kit around that time frame, but it would have been one of my first efforts - Those kits are long gone to the landfill.

Here are a few of my more recent builds of the old 1/32 scale Revell Hurricane and Spitfire.

In 1/48 scale . . .   The B-24 D.  As if the Liberator wasn't ugly enough already - The Moby scheme didn't really help.

And the Spitfire Mk. I

Nice bunch of models, Bossman.  I agree that B-24D is not so pretty, but we all have to build one, don't we?

I built this one in the Fall of 1965, I'm pretty sure.  The latest it could have been built was the Spring of 1967.

Wow, some great work on some classic kits is being showcased here!  I thought I'd add a couple of my recent Revellogram builds to the mix.  It's been a while since I've shared a Revellogram build here, so I figured it's about time that I do.

 

1/48 P-47 Razorback

 

1/48 AH-1F

 

I have a few more Revellogram kits in the pile that I want to get to.  Hopefully I'll be able to (eventually) add them to the thread.

Cheers!

Nice looking builds 'O'.  I really like your clear parts. Any special technique? That P-47 does not look like the kit canopy? Could it be from an Otaki P-47? I ask because I used an Otaki canopy of the razorback I have in progress in the Monogram Mafia III GB

cbaltrin,

Thanks for the pat on the back.  That canopy is the kit's canopy.  I didn't do anything special to it, well, besides a Future dip.  Funny thing is I was worried what condition it'd be in because it was covered with liquid mask for over a year.  When I peeled off the mask, there was some "hazing" of the plastic, but a few brush strokes of Future produced the sheen you see.  Hope that answers your question.  Thanks for looking!

Cheers,

-O

Okay, I do not have many Revell/Monogram kits to boast about and these are from earlier days in the hobby.

1/48 PBY 5a "Black Cat" image was taken off the model show web site (i did not have a digital camera back then)

1/48 P-61 Black Widow, saw a few of these in here already but here is mine

Now if you are looking for something a little bit faster how about this.

Ah the classic Lightning. All you need is the F-5 Photo Recon version to complete all the kit option builds

These photos are obviously fakes, because everyone knows, you can't build the Monogram P-38 into a nice model!  None of the parts fit, it's not scaled correctly, etc, etc, etc.

Big Smile

Thanks for indulging me in my wisecrack!  Seriously, those are excellent builds, and I think you prove that it is still a kit worth building.  Beautifully done!

Best regards,

Brad

I built the P-38 as a kid. Don't remember any issues. Have 2 in the stash. It's a fine kit.

You did a fantastic job on all the P-38 Lightnings.  Excellent!  You just need the recon photo version to complete the set and you're good to go!

The first kit I bought new, The second kit was a 1960's kit found at a garage sale, and the third kit my Wife found at a goodwill.  The next one I find will be made into the photo-recon version.
