Grumman F9F Panther

Jim Sullivan Memorial Group: F9F-2 Panther

I was looking in one of Jim Sullivan's books, entitled "Bent and Battered Wings", and came across an interesting series of photos of an F9F-2 Panther that came to grief in 1952. Apparently the returning Panther failed to catch a [...]

1/48 F9F-5P PantherKorean War Group Build.

This is the 1990s Monogram kit which was apparently modified from the original -5 fighter molds. Both kits are excellent models. In fact, the Monogram Panther is one of my all time favorite kits. Definitely in the top five. I decided [...]

1/48 Monogram Grummann F9F-5 Panther Korean War

Good old Monogram are still worth building...hope you enjoy!

Grumman F9F-5 PantherMonogram 1/48

Today I'd like to share a recent finish, and a former champion on the Shelf of Doom. This kit, like the Monogram F-80 I recently completed, was not a difficult build, but it was indeed not without setbacks and "mo-jo killers". [...]

1/48 FM F9F-8 Cougar converted to F9F-8P

I bought a 1/48 FM (Fonderie Miniature) Cougar years ago in my pursuit of building one of each of the Blue Angels display aircraft in 1/48. In time I learned that it was essentially a Monogram 1/48 Panther kit that had been modified [...]

Collect-Aire 1/48 F9F-8

So, years ago I invested in a Collect-Aire 1/48 F9F-8... At the time, the only 1/48 kits around of the F9F-8 were the Lodella/Revell kit (1/50) and the FM kit. I actually got both (then sold the Lodella/Revell), but later I learned about [...]

Hasegawa 1/72 F9F-8 Cougar

Hi all, Years ago, I carefully sought out 1/72 kits of all the Blue Angels Display aircraft, which led to also looking for 1/72 transport aircraft, then I went on to 1/48...you get the idea. Well, in my focus of getting the 1/72 kits, I [...]

Trumpeter 1/48 F9F-2 Panther

For my first contribution to iModeller, I attach pictures of my Panther, which was one of the first 1/48 models I built. I found this kit very easy to assemble, with almost no fit issues. What small issues there were, could be easily [...]

1/48th Trumpeter F9F-2 Panther

I just finished building the 1/48th Trumpeter F9F-2 Grumman Panther. It's finished in the markings of VMF-311 as carried by that squadron during their participation in the Korean War. As a side note, the great baseball player Ted Williams [...]

Revell 1/48 F9F-5P

Whew, glad to finish this one off and it did turn out nice. There were a few glitches in assembly that slowed down the line-mainly a bad mis-alignment of the tip tanks at the ends. That took a lot of work to rein in and I had to be very [...]
