Monogram B-58 Hustler.. (a repost)
July 22, 2014 in Aviation
The venerable old Monogram kit is still an accurate (accurate enough for ME, that is) and H-U-G-E model when completed. Gotta have a lotta space if you’re gonna build this one.
Naturally, no airbrushes were damaged during the assembly of this silver bird. Model Master (Testors), “buffable metalizer” spray cans exclusively. With shades like Aluminum Plate, Titanium, Magnesium, Gun Metal and Stainless Steel from which to choose, PLUS the option of buffing or not buffing, gives one many color choices to pick from.
I always brushed on – yes, brushed on – a coat of Future (or similar), before using Tamiya ‘yellow tape’ to mask off the panel lines. Anyone wanna buy a used airbrush? Only used a handful of times – like new. 🙂
