F-80C Shooting Star in 1/32 scale.by Czech Model.
August 27, 2013 in Aviation
I am very fortunate to have a well trained son who shares my interest in model aircraft, to the extent that he buys me a kit from time to time for my birthdays. This one’s from two years ago.
Like a few other well known aircraft from the Korean War era kits of the F-80 are pretty hard to find. The only other one I know of in the larger scales being the Monogram one in 1/48, which may still be found if you look hard.
Anyway, the kit is excellent with the proviso that it needs a bit of fettling here & there as one would expect in a short run kit. I enjoyed every minute of this build!
Hope you like it.
