A Monogram Holiday portrait, my latest Blue Box find, and a Phantom update
Happy Holidays iModelers! Here is the family portrait of my Monogram kits, many of the originals were added this year, including the DO-335, B-29, B-25H, P-39 and Typhoon, the Typhoon I just added today, still in the cello wrap! On to the Phantom update. One of the hardest things of modern USN aircraft is those darned red edges to the landing gear doors, well I bought a fine tipped Gundam marker, easy peasy! I added pencil lead rubs to the turkey feathers, and I think I got the metal part of the tail down pretty good. Paint went on well, I mixed and matched Furball decals for VF-142s CAG bird from 1968. No multi colored tail on this one, so that was easy! Eduard’s Sparrow, and decals went together nicely. I also have a bomb set and ‘winders! I probably wont get this one done before the end of the year, so stay tuned for the finish in ’19!
