‘ Utility’ Panther

by IAN JACKSON on September 12, 2016 in Aviation -- 23 Comments

Hey folks, as mentioned, my follow-up to the F-8 Crusader from a couple of weeks back is another USN subject. One of the quickest (a month-and-a-day), easiest and most relaxing builds I’ve ever done. The old Monogram F9F-2 Panther updated […]


Detail and Scale, F9F Cougar

by Jaime Carreon on November 20, 2015 in Reviews -- 2 Comments

I was also able to secure a copy of the Detail and Scale series on the F9F Cougar a few days ago. Greg Kittinger posted a pretty comprehensive review here, and most of my impressions mirror his. This is my […]

As I was able to secure the F9F Cougar Detail & Scale eBook offered yesterday, I’m posting my review here. Obviously any serious modeler will be familiar with the printed versions of these books, so as to general content I’ll […]


Kitty Hawk’s Grumman F9F-8T Cougar in 1/48

by Tony Prince on October 30, 2014 in Aviation -- 27 Comments

As soon as I saw the advance notice I put in my order for this magnificent & much neglected model. It seems that most kit manufactures have forgotten about the 1950’s & ’60’s so a Cougar was great news! It […]

by Chuck A. Villanueva on February 2, 2014 in Aviation -- 22 Comments

Staying in the Korean War theme, this is Monograms kit in 48th scale. A nice build, even with the raised panel lines, it is a fun kit to build. A straight forward build only aftermarket used were Super Scale decals […]


Trumpeter 1/48th F9F Panther

by Craig Abrahamson on October 27, 2013 in Aviation -- 9 Comments

I guess you could call this a “work in progress”, because I’m waitin’ on a canopy mask set to arrive in order to complete the build – other than that, it’s pretty much done I think. I wanted to do […]

1/48 Monogram F9F-2 Panther

by Joe Caputo on September 13, 2013 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

I thought I’d try to back date the F9F-5 to the 2 version, and so, rounded the tail a little. I’m not sure how accurate that is, but it looked ok to me. My collection needed a “Blue Angel”, and […]


An Oldie But Goodie 48th Scale Panther Jet

by Jack Mugan on August 7, 2013 in Aviation -- 20 Comments

The Panther Jet has always been one of my favorite ever since I built the Monogram Speedy-Built kit back in the day. Just like the cars in the fifties, these jet where just plain down-right beautiful.


Royce Williams’ Mig-killer Panther

by Tom Cleaver on May 10, 2013 in Aviation -- 9 Comments

By rights, Grumman F9F-5 Panther BuNo 125459 should be the most famous Panther of all, and her pilot, Lieutenant Royce Williams, the most famous Panther pilot of all. However, immediately after the event for which this acclaim should have been […]

by Tom Cleaver on April 4, 2013 in Aviation -- 8 Comments

As anyone who has seen any of Paul Fisher’s kits knows, they are among the best resin kits made, worth every penny they cost. They are so well-designed that any modeler with any level of experience who takes their time, […]
