1/48 Monogram Convair B-58A Hustler
This is another favourite of mine, the B-58 Hustler. The Monogram kit is getting on a bit but still not a bad build and intersting in this scale. Pretty straight forward build, raised panel lines are a bit of a pain but you get over it and make the best of what you can. I could have gone big on the interior detail but decided to shut the lid as the cockpit detail was a bit sparse. everything is straight from the box including decals of which there are a couple of options.
The fun part for me is the painting. Lots of opportunity for bare metal panels.
There’s another one of these beasts in the loft. Next one could go camo, or should we stick to bare metal? Decisions…
Just added photos of the real thing at Pima Air & Space Museum, Tucson.
