Lockheed F-80 Shooting Star

Monogram 1/48 F-80 "The Beer City Special"36th FBS, 8th FBW, Korea 1951

The technological revolution in aircraft design and operation that resulted from the successful development of jet engines brought about more technological change in the five years between the end of World War II and the Korean War than [...]

Hobby Boss 1/48 scale F-80C Shooting Star (Kit #81725)

This was a very enjoyable kit and renewed my faith in HobbyBoss products. One thing I learned in researching this project is that the first jet fighters (and the F-80 was America’s first active duty fighter) were real gas guzzlers! Of [...]

Korean War GB: Lockheed F-80C Shooting StarMonogram 1/48

This kit has been on the cusp of completion for a few months. With little time or energy to do much building recently, I primarily needed to clean and organize my work area, which had gotten a bit out of hand.. when the dust settled, this [...]

Hobbyboss F-80 C Shooting Star “Saggin Dragon”

Although serving in small numbers towards the end of World War II, Lockheed’s pugnacious fighter made a name for itself as a fighter and strike bomber during the Korean War. To commemorate the start of the Korean War 70 years ago and to [...]

Dear imodeller-community, here is one of my recently builded NFMs...its the first time that I have used the new xtreme-metal colours from AMK. It worked very well, and I am happy with the result. Unfortunately due to wrong [...]

Czech Model 1/32 Lockheed F-80C Shooting Star

By mid-1943, it was obvious that the Bell P-59A Airacomet, the first U.S. jet fighter was a failure, being far too heavy and unable to give a higher performance than either the P-47 or P-51, with little opportunity for further development [...]

Monogram F-80C Shooting Star “Salty Dog”

I thought I had posted these pics before but it seems that I haven't. With that in mind, Tom Cleaver's generous compliments in the "Monograms at the airport" thread" moved me to show the few pics that I do have of this [...]

F-80C Shooting Star in 1/32 scale.by Czech Model.

I am very fortunate to have a well trained son who shares my interest in model aircraft, to the extent that he buys me a kit from time to time for my birthdays. This one's from two years ago. Like a few other well known aircraft from the [...]
