1/48 Monogram P-39 Airacobra
Here’s another one we’ve all built, the trusted, old, Mongram P-39 airacobra. I’ve been led to understand that this was Monogram’s first attempt at a “serious” scale model. It was my second time around with it, and I still enjoy this kit. I’ve always wanted to do this shark-mouth version, but upon researching it, I found that no two modelers paint it the same colors. Even the guys doing the box art have got it different over the years (re-pops) I made a guess as to what I thought it might be based on the British colors I thought it may wear originally (sand and spinach) While I was going back to an “old school” build, I figured I would paint it the same way, so out came the brush. You wouldn’t believe how much fun I had getting it the way I wanted it. Still learning after all these years, and it’s a pleasure….
