Monogram 1/72 F-11c Hawk

December 16, 2012 in Aviation

I got this kit at a club auction, in a plastic baggie, with instructions, but sans decals.
I built it out of nostalgia for old kits, built when I was younger, but with an adult ‘eye’. I replaced the missing decals with a borrowed 1/48 kit decal sheet, shot down to 1/72 on inkjet decal film. As the kit had no interior, just a pilot with a huge pin in his hip, I scratched one again, using the borrowed 1/48 kit as a pattern.I had fun with this one, (I admit I build 1/72’s for fun, I tend to get all ‘AMS” with larger scales.)

  1. Nice Model!! Pre-War “Yellow Wing” Navy subjects make a refreshing change from the comparatively drab wartime schemes. Thanks for posting!!
