Aside from it being a Panther, I agree 100% A very super build!

Hi guys,

I have been too long "in the business" to deprive myself of building an R/M kit so this is one of my best. I built it some 13 years ago and it took me almost 21 months because it is not straight from the box. In fact it has been extensively reworked - including a lot of scratch-built detail: (pic heavy)

Just completed this old Monogram 1/48 Me-262 for the Monogram Mafia GB. It's a very simple but great looking kit that includes two great looking figures.I bought this on eBay several years ago but it's out again under the Revell label.

The figures

 

The plane on a home made base made from scrap wood.

Thank you Baron. I have no idea who makes the base. I could probably use a few more actually and would buy them if I knew who to get them from. It was in the display case at Brookhurst Hobbies with all sorts of other bases and no labels aside from the price tag. It was perfect for the F-86 and at a good price so it came home with me.

That's a beautiful Sabre, Stik!  But I'm reall curious about the base.  Who makes that?

Ok, found it three pages back. Yours is  all tricked out nicely as well!  I'd love to see the two side by side.

That's a great looking Salamander stik. As a matter of fact I did one not long ago with a fully detailed engine, resin and scratch built details about a couple of pages back.

Thank you PJ. 1st place was well deservedly taken by a Revell Germany 1/32 He-162 Volksjäger that was beautifully built. The engine was fully plumbed and wired up. That build also took Judges Choice for the evening.

Have a look thru our club gallery here...

Not until November. I'm leaving town in October for several weeks and will lose a month of build time on my travels. Once I get back, I'll start my projects. The six month time span applies to me too.

Thank you CB. I really like the Korean War aircraft. A mix of the old and new.

Once a year I think. But nothing else anymore. The hobby is dying in this state. There are others here, but they seem to be scattered. Oh, unless you're into trains! They still have clubs!

No kit collector shows or model swap meets up there? Or perhaps IPMS meetings? Those are always good sources down here for secondhand old kits.

I'm sure I'll find one eventually. I haven't used eBay in years but I'll probably set it back up eventually.

Until then, the continuous hunt around the south western half of Washington has turned up some fascinating results lol.

I'm really enjoying the thrill of the hunt lol!

Thanks Mike. Those Monogram MiG-15's are all over eBay. I'm surprised that Revell has not re issued it in many years. 

I still need to pose the Sabre with my other two Monogram Korean War birds, the F-80 and F9F.

Great looking p40! Definitely not too many pictures! No idea about new thread never heard a response to that question

 

Maybe once I get my PB stuff recovered... I only have about 11-12 years worth of photos to retrieve.... Too much on my plate to do it all at once.

in the meantime, let's just keep on keeping on here.
