1/48 Monogram T-28A Trojan

September 5, 2013 · in Aviation · · 3 · 2K

I don't know which version did first, the A or B, but I completed the B, before I came upon this one. The only difference I can see is the cowl and the two bladed prop. Boxing in the wheel wells took as much time as building the rest. Other than that, it's pretty much OOB. I found a pic of the Navy bird in bare metal and thought it looked unusual, so on went the decals...

  1. Joe,
    You do wonders for the old Monogram kits. I saw your post in the "off topics" section about a renewed interest in old kits. You may have a point. When I got back into modeling in 1968' after a very brief absence, the first kit I built was a Monogram Hurricane. (I still have it) Monograms were my favorite kits at that time and I built a lot of them. I think I will dig out a few photos and see if I can post them. Great thought and great work.

  2. Well Joe you never cease to amaze me with your output. As Frank said the renewed interest in old kits. I think that it is great to have a contrast between the new and the old. It shows the advances in tooling and design changes through the years.
    But a kit is a kit whether it is brand ne or 50 years old.
    Nice job there Joe.

  3. Another oldie but goodie.
