Monogram Boeing F4B-4
A pair of the venerable Monogram Boeing F4B-4 kits, first released in 1968. This is one of the easiest biplane kits to build, the landing gear legs and fuselage struts are molded as part of the fuselage halves with results in a strong assembly and proper alignment. If you struggle with biplane kits you will be pleased with this one, it is a joy to build and still holds up well by today’s standards. I scratchbuilt a cockpit and added rigging from 0.004” Nitenol wire. Decals are from Yellow Wings sheet 72-011, the white-tailed aircraft was operated by VF-6 from the USS Saratoga (CV-3), the green tailed one was from VB-5 aboard the USS Ranger (CV-4).
