1/72 KP Convair XFY-1 “Pogo”

by Joe Caputo on September 26, 2013 in Aviation -- 7 Comments

No floats ! Not much “landing gear”, either. Basically this was a simple little kit, with not much detail. No major fit problems, but not much to look at when you’re done. I felt that it filled an interesting void [...]
