Classic Kit: Revell 1/40 Skyraider (1958)
This is another one of my out of the box builds. It is the 1/40 Skyraider. Note, It is not a box scale kit. Revell issued other models in this scale including all their armor kits from the era. I tried to post the building process but the system would not let me. This was already a started kit and I have no idea how I ended up with it. Every model I've seen of this kit shows the wonky wings and short landing gear due to all the moving parts on the kit. I decided to forgo all that and build it on a stand in SEA colors. One edition of the kit in 1975 or so had extra parts for a Sandy. I robbed that kit for the parts and decals. Building the model involved normal modeling skills. I used Perfect Plastic Putty on this one and Tamiya gray primer. So here is my version of the vintage Revell model built out of the box.
