Scratch built F-80C Shooting Star..Finished photos
Posted by Foz on Friday, April 3, 2020 7:17 AM

Hi Guys

 

 

I really like the late 40/50s jet era and decided to have a go at scratch building this Shooting Star in 1:48 scale. The P/F-80 was the first operational Jet aircraft used by the United States Air Force in combat...although too late for the Second World War it was used extensively during the Korean War. The markings are of the F-80C that is housed in the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton.Ohio.

 

 

For anyone who is interested in the construction of this model ,it can be seen on this page.  

 

I hope you like the finished model.......

Thanks a lot for having a peep!

Stay safe

Fozzy

Hey Foz!

    Now looky there! An unarmed large Scale model plane that looks like it wants to " Rip Yer Heart Out! I like your planes a bunch. I wanted to do some years ago ,But couldn't at that time fid plans easily.

      I had the sheet metal source down pat. The Harbor/Marina where I worked gave me all the recycleables and we're talking about a full 1/2 ton Pickup of Aluminum twice a week!

     Closest I ever got was an " AG-Cat" a friend owned. I gave the model to him.
