P-80 Shooting Star
I was commissioned to build this and was given a colored plate showing the exact A/C he wanted. The plate described the P-80 as being with the 26th Fighter Interceptor Squadron at Kimpo Airfield, Korea in November of 1950.
the kit is the 1/48 F-80A done by HobbyBoss. The plate showed the color on it to be blue but in fact it may be re. whatever, this is what he wanted and this is what he got. All of the blue on this I masked and painted. Can’t help but love the P/F-80. I really liked the HobbyBoss kit and I will probably do another one at a later time. There are things about this kit that I really liked but I also think the old Monogram kit is still a superb rendition.
regardless, the customer was pleased.
