Monogram 1/48 Vought Kingfisher
The ancient Monogram Kingfisher is still a very nice kit. The boxart on Revell/Monogram’s last re-issue is an artist’s conception of the aircraft in the photo, I discovered well after I had started my kit. My interpretation of the same aircraft varied somewhat, as far as insignia goes, I found out, after seeing the latest rendition. I have to thank Jack Mugan for the red surround, stars n bars in the size I required.
The kit was OOB (the mast antenna was lost just prior photo shoot) and after the kit was assembled according to instructions, the real fun started. I like the way the weathering turned out, but trying to duplicate the photo took more time than the build itself.
