I know these aren’t exactly accurate, but it was fun to build and play around with markings, colors etc.
019 is the Monogram kit, 014 is the Lindberg one.
I hope you like 🙂

Did you paint over the canopies (because the interior was rather sparse) or did they come like that?

Hi Craig 🙂 I painted over the canopies
That’s what I should’ve done on some of mine – either because the interior was terrible (or… more likely), I messed up the clear part somehow. 🙁
No worries, though. It gives it that “Desktop Model” look.

Nice brace of P-80s, good looking stand.

Thank you 🙂 I use the Krylon “stone” spray and seal it with Minwax Polycrylic.

The Lindberg F-80 is one of the original plastic model kits, with their Fleet sub and the Stearman PT-17. Compared to the Monogram, you can tell its an early bird.
You’ve got a nice comparison of F-80s from the earliest days.
Anyone built the Hobbyboss?

Planes on a pole, what’s not to like. Both look really good Troy.
