Review: Looking for an excuse to drag out your F-89 kit? Here it is!
It's certain that there are a large number of modelers who have Revell's big 1/48 F-89D/J Scorpion sitting on the Shelf of Doom. Here's a reason to drag it out and set to work.
Four nicely-designed and cleanly-printed parts make up the tank - all you have to do is attach them the way they fit, since they're keyed for proper alignment. There are six AIM-4s and their launchers, with the launchers also having a key inside the well for proper alignment.
Cost is $25.00 and USPS shipping. Chad can be contacted at [email protected]
These are really nice. If you do the kit as one of the 89 new-build F-89H or the rebuilt F-89J, you can get away with using the kit decals.
I'm also including two photos of the late "Bondo Phil" Brandt's F-89H he scratch-modified, to give an idea of what your model could look like, using this set.
I bought these last week after they were announced, and I am sure that my F-89 kit will be coming out of the Storage Box Of Doom soon.
