  1. Nice looking, Craig. Fits right in on that USN shelf. Keep up the good work !

  2. Different, but cool, Craig. Makes for a nice what-if!

    Where did get or did you make that stand for the Spad?

    • Yeah…most of the stuff I build could be considered “what-if’s”. In regard to the stand, when I purchased ’em, I got ’em from an outfit called Micro-Mark. They offered four different sizes (of which I got all 4). The one in the pic is the third tallest/biggest (there’s one that’s even higher) – the other two are progressively smaller/shorter. They are fully adjustable on all three axis and are quite handy for workin’ on the model in various modes. Set ’em on a cigar box or sumthin’ and then they’re ‘eye-level’. Haven’t done a search lately for ’em, so dunno where to tell ya to look. Maybe Google “model airplane display stands” and see what it comes up with. Good luck and thanks.

  3. Looks like a very neat job, Craig, all the underwing stuff looks really good.

  4. Very nice Craig. I like it!

  5. Craig,
    Looks good. Nice touch on the color.

  6. Craig I love it ! The panther is one of my faves as are all “early” jets.I like your courage to be different its refreshing considering all the color police and rivet counters out there. You look like your having fun and thats what its all about. Thomas

  7. I got the old Monogram box and you just gave me an idea for a “What If!”. It really is one of the most elegant looking jobs if seen in a while. Really nice work!

  8. I don’t know how I missed this one. Great job, not only on the paint scheme but extra points for the folded wings! I always wanted to do the same thing but didn’t have “the nerve”, you’ve inspired me.

  9. Hadn’t seen this before. Very nice Panther, and I really like the Spad too!

  10. Great looking Panther. Love the grey/white theme for a change. Something different then the typical blue I went with. Really great build with perfection!
