Monogram's venerable four star "plastikit" SBD Dauntless was originally released in 1960. It was until the Accurate Miniatures and Hasegawa SBDs the only game in town in 1/48. Over the years some very impressive models have been built using th[...]
an old Monogram Razorback,finally finished as a British Thunderbolt.
Hope you like it.
This is the old Monogram kit. Originally released in 1967, I built this one from a 1993 reissue. I robbed the big Lockheed wing tanks from a Tamiya kit, and relocated one bomb to the centerline station. The big fuel tanks are a common sight o[...]
I bought this car 'cause the real one's were produced by the Ford Motor Company during the year of my birth.
