RFM Panther update

I have been steadily plugging away at the kit, and still am impressed with many facets of it. One thing though that amazes me is small “misses”. For example on the engine deck there are two covers towards the rear. […]

A hard fought battle

Ok, the story so far, the RFM Panther G, is in a word Amazing, in three words hard to build. Now that is with a caveat, you just really need to pay attention to the flow of the directions and […]

A good read and a cold one….plus more RFM Panther..

So buying books has become more expensive as of late, I suppose specialty books always have been more spendy than a mainstream top seller, but still, ebay what the first Dual in the Mist goes for these days! The last […]

Year of the Cat: Monogram F9F-5 Panther “the Bluetail Fly”

USS Princeton’s deployment on the line at the beginning of her final Korean deployment in April-May 1953 saw nine pilots shot down, with seven of the nine killed or missing. Among the dead was Lt(jg) Richard “Stretch” Clinite of VF-153, […]

Monogram F9F-5 and F9F-5P Panthers

Monogram’s Panther first appeared in 1990, the first 1/48 F9F in close to 35-40 years past the Aurora and Hawk kits. At the time, it was the best and most accurate kit of the Panther, and it is still the […]
