    This is my 7th and last build for 2020.
    The kit’s box and instruction sheet had a copyright date of 1978. The decals were in poor condition and not useable , fortunately I had some decals from an Italeri kit. It was built out of the box and I followed the painting instructions that came with the kit since my paint inventory coincided with the colors called out by Monogram.

    For a forty+ year old kit, it is pretty nice. It went together without too much trouble. It makes a nice addition to my Luftwaffe collection.

    Thank you Erik @airbum ! It was an enjoyable trip down memory lane since I had built one when they first came out.

    Amazing job, my friend @ssgt! I somehow missed this thread...
    I just love seing old kits brought to life!
    You might even consider presenting this beauty to the headlines!

    Thanks @fiveten ! Building older kits seems to be my main focus in modeling. Generally they were less complex. Although, the Trumpeter 1/48 MiG-3 that I built was a newer kit and went together beautifully & simply.
