1/48 F2H-2 Banshee
It must be Banshee Friday! Hot on the heels of Michael’s, here’s mine. I just finished it about an hour ago.
This is the disappointing Kittyhawk kit saved by the Rieth Banshee resin correction set. I ran a build log in the aircraft work in progress section if you’d like to see the blow by blow. I finished it with Modelmaster and Humbrol enamels. The decals are from Furball’s Banshee collection representing an F2H-2 from VF-62 aboard USS Lake Champlain at the end of the Korean War. This was really a special project that was enjoyable and educational. If you want a decent Banshee, you really need the Rieth set. I know I’ll be building a -2P using it in the not too distant future.
