This year of the cat build is Swords 1/72 TF-9J Twogar. A bit of a challenge to build[for me] no locating pins, kind of soft plastic, ill fitting in some places, the kit decals tended to curl when you go […]

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 […]
