A couple. of classics, and one I have searched for for years
I have found myself more and more drawn to vintage kits. Maybe it's getting older and waxing nostalgic, but I find them fun and much less stress than modern super kits, which I still like, hello Tamiya F-4B!. So I picked up the original issue of Monogram's P-38. For decades this was the gold standard and the only viable P-38 in 1/48 scale, the rivets are sublime. Next came a '93 re-issue. of Revell's Gemini capsule, a '68 pressing of Revell's 1/72 B-24, again for years. the gold standard for a 1/72 B-24. Then, my "Grail" kit. Monogram's Sand Crab. I had one as a boy, and have looked for one on and off over the years. ebay has had them for upwards of $200, I saw one with missing parts in a moldy box for $50 once at a hobby shop. Then I googled it one day an BAM! Etsy, an antique store had one $50 plus shipping! Score! I pushed my 1/48 F-4B aside and started in! Love the vintage plastic!
