Started another one last night while I was waiting on parts from the Ki 43 to dry. This looks like a great detailed kit, lots of internal detail. This looks like a re release of an old Monogram kit, it is also stamped Monogram 1997 on some parts. Good year, when I graduated. This will be my last WWII US Navy build I think, even though I may someday get a better Corsair because the one I have so so undetailed, it looks like a one of the older models that were really meant to play with back in the day. Anyways, this has good enough detail to be u[p there with the Avenger. Too bad more companies dont do this type of work.
19. October 2018, 17:33
Christopher Mullins
Been working on the flaps, there is a lot from the wing you have to take off to get em on, got one side prepped but its taking some time.
23. July 2019, 17:17
Christopher Mullins
Well, I've come much further with this one, the flaps are on, the camo is mostly painted, and working now on the painting on the tail. Thinking this one is turning out pretty good, even though it has taken so long, or maybe because Ive spent so much time on it.

Brush painting the Navy 3-tone scheme is a challenge! Looks good to me
4. February, 17:21
Christopher Mullins
I like the Testors Navy Blue, but, I cant get it anymore, I have enough to finish this kit, but then, Ill have to go with the Humbrol Navy Blue, which I find is really too dark. I dont really have a problem painting this scheme, I like hand painting camo, even if its doesn't always have the desired border, especially when it is faded, its hard to accomplish with a brush, but I find close enough is good enough. I like my stuff to look good and be as accurate as possible with colors, but I dont have the money to special order every color I should use on every model I have, so I think if its about right its good, and doesn't have to be 100 percent perfect. I have a problem painting the design on the tail, no motivation. Sometimes I dont like Revell very much.

A new kit, even with photoeched parts
23. September 2012, 13:29
Bill Gilman
OK, so I think it's the old Accurate Miniatures/Monogram Pro Modeller kit, which is a beauty! It had photoetch even back then (early 1990s). I'm glad it's not the original Monogram kit from the 60s, although the "working" features were fun! Especially the bomb that swings out to clear the prop. It would work about 10 times before it broke! :)
23. September 2012, 13:43
Bill Gilman
I just looked on oldmodelkits.com and you can pick up the Monogram Pro Modeller release of this kit for a measly $79 USD!

You can find em on Ebay sometimes, thats where I got mine, a lot of people sell their stashes there, and often there are a lot of old kits there. In fact there is one from Revell up on Ebay right now, just checked but its 70 Euros

Hi Vegard. This kit can be turned in a show stopper (I was just looking at the stunning work our member Mike Grant did on his...) ... The real problem, for me, is all the filler and sanding required, again and again...I don't know if I'll finish it :#

Wonderful work. I have some Helldiver kits in 1/72 scale and 1/48, all waiting for building as Marina Militare and Aeronautica Militare of Italy. Your model is a good starting point for my next work.

I'm just about finished this kit. If you look at my stash you will see a lot of old models. I'm one of those guys who got back into modelling after a long absence. I'm also one of those guys going down memory lane trying to apply my adult modelling skills to kits I did in my youth. This is one I would rather have skipped and done a modern version instead. The working features were fun when I was 10 and I didn't care about detail or gaps. Now those things are just an annoyance. It is turning out much better than the last time I built it but I'm jealous of guys who are picking up new releases and producing outstanding models. Same goes for the Monogram Avenger.

Nucks, no point of being jealous, as long as YOU are having fun!!!
14. April 2016, 18:46

Maybe I'm not jealous but I am excited with the prospect of digging into one of those newer kits I've heard so much about.
14. April 2016, 19:36
Germen V
go on buy one, what are you waiting for. I if may make a suggestion, try out an Eduard Weekend-editions kit. They are relative cheap and full of detail, e.g. Mirage III or Mig-21, great kits, value for money.
14. April 2016, 19:43

Ha, ha! I should. I've just been looking at people's stashes on here and my 16 kits doesn't even count as a stash!

WRONG KIT, PLEASE REMOVE

17. June 2015, 17:53
Rex
You'd need to tell people why this is a "wrong kit" in order for them to delete it from the database, this and the kit above are different box tops than all the other 1/48 Monogram kits.

Besides that, "Hasegawa-Monogram" kits were a perfectly legitimate series of kits back then, they released Monogram kits in Hasegawa-Monogram boxes before they released their own versions of some kits. (for example, the Hasegawa-Monogram F-4J and F-4C kits that were released just a few years before Hasegawa released the "modular F-4 Series" of Blue Box kits,,,,,,,,,leasing molds is a common deal in this hobby)

oh, and as I have been trying to get people to understand for the last 4 weeks, just because someone has never seen a kit doesn't mean it never existed as a release, and just because someone has a kit doesn't mean that specific boxing is supposed to replace every other boxing. Identifying the differences in "the same kit tooling in different releases" is what this site is all about, that is why there are timelines in the first place

Spot on Rex.

There's many different boxings and releases floating around in various parts of the world, I've been collecting kits for over 30 years and see things i've never seen before turn up at swap n sells and on the worldwide garage sale... Ebay all the time. Some items may get re-released after 10 or 20 years with little change. Or some like Hasegawa's "limited edition" aircraft get a new box and decal options nearly every year. That is what makes this hobby interesting, I'm always on the lookout for something rare to add to the collection. I blame the internet now for not having time to make everything in my collection. I wish people would only add or make changes if you can identify something 100% but if things appear to be doubles "tag" the item and let scalemates check. :)

Wish I knew something about building Armor have never built a tank before only planes cars and ships and spacecraft. I once built a model of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 and installed fiber optic lights and painted the whole Aztec pattern by hand one panel at a time. That was like in 1984-85
18. June 2014, 17:36
Alan Rush
Why don't you take the plunge and join the Light Tank Groupbuild? Maybe you'll get hooked! I built my own Enterprise a couple of years ago and should post in an album. Did not feel confident enough to take on the wiring for the lights. Do you still have yours? Should post it if you do.

Nikolajs Negeriss
Hi Alan! Very good result for the first plane! As other said, interior is perfect! And remember my first experience with can - had to sand a lot ;) later I learned that I should do quick and short motions with can to get right result... Also I actually found a way how to fix orange peal. I sand it with 1200-2500 grit sand paper and apply Future with wide brush. Another way is to sand, polish and can also apply wax for high gloss.
I like your approach and attitude - great way to learn new things, and I hope to see another plane model from you some day ;) Keep up good work, Alan!
18. June 2014, 18:32

Thanks Nikolajs. I have more aircraft on the shelf to build. When I looked at your albums in clicked that you had posted your Mig 37 before. That was a great job of painting and finishing.

Clifford Keesler
Alan if you are looking for a Cheap but good airbrush TCP Global makes a dual action airbrush it is called the G-25. It works very nice and is easy to maintain and clean. I think Hunter Cummings has the same airbrush. I only paid 25.00Usd for mine.
18. June 2014, 23:55
Choppa Nutta
now thats good to know, the G-25 by TCP Global !
hope you might post a link of that on my Airbrush review thread for the others to see :)
19. June 2014, 00:13
Nikolajs Negeriss
Thank you, Alan, nice to see people get some inspiration from your job ;)
In regards to airbrush, I may try to guide you, if you wish - have tried more then 10 guns so far
Clifford, I had a look at G25 on the web. It has 0.2 nozzle. Which kind of paint have you been using so far and what is min and max diameter of pattern you can get from that?
