Monogram 1/48 Models done long ago
I dug up these photos of some of the models I did a long time ago. I had a brief time away from modeling and then returned in 1968. My first kit upon my return was the Monogram 1/48 Hurricane. I built it OOB and painted it with gloss paint and a brush. One of the other early ones was the FW-190. Again I painted this with gloss paint and a brush. It sat around for a while and then I bought a Binks airbrush. I stripped the FW and re-painted it with the airbrush. This was the first model I ever painted with the airbrush. I still have both the Hurricane and the FW and keep them for sentimental reasons. All of the other kits I built early on at various times. I entered the P-51 in the 1977 IPMS Nationals and got an honorable mention for it. I made this kit as it has my wife's name on it. A good move to keep your wives happy. I recommend it to all. If these come through for this article I have more old Monogram photos that I think I will submit. Monogram is still at the top of my favorites list.
