1/48 F9F-5 Panther
When I finished my Banshee last week and put it in the display case, I realized that I had never shared it’s stablemate the Panther with anyone online. This is the Monogram kit that I think came out in 1990 or 1991. In my opinion, it’s the best 1/48 fighter that Monogram ever did and is still one of my favorite kits. I built this one in 1995 before the internet was widely used and none of our favorite sites existed. I painted it with Aeromaster gloss sea blue , not knowing that it’s a better match for WW2 GSB then ‘50s GSB. The decals are from Superscale. As you can see, it’s considerably smaller then the Banshee.
