Hey, Abrahamson, my landing gear works!….

Built this one, with my Dad, more than once in the dark ages, always fighting the working landing gear. Well, this one works (when will it give out? The shadow knows). Built right out of the (old) box, axles melted over to hold the wheels on, an[...]

1/48 Monogram P-39 Airacobra

Here's another one we've all built, the trusted, old, Mongram P-39 airacobra. I've been led to understand that this was Monogram's first attempt at a "serious" scale model. It was my second time around with it, and I still enjoy this kit. I'[...]

1/48 Monogram F9F-2 Panther

I thought I'd try to back date the F9F-5 to the 2 version, and so, rounded the tail a little. I'm not sure how accurate that is, but it looked ok to me. My collection needed a "Blue Angel", and I thought this would be a good place to begin. A[...]

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 model. The wind was real[...]

Monograms at the airport

In keeping with recent contributions, here's a collection of some of my 1/48 Monogram planes all photographed at the Cameron, Texas airport. I think most have been previously seen here as individual posts but here they are as a group. And, ther[...]

Yet more old Monogram builds

To join in on the trip down memory lane here are a few of my old Monogram models, all were completed between 25 and 30 years ago. Eric aka The Yankymodeler

Monogram 1/48 Models done long ago

I dug up these photos of some of the models I did a long time ago. I had a brief time away from modeling and then returned in 1968. My first kit upon my return was the Monogram 1/48 Hurricane. I built it OOB and painted it with gloss paint and a[...]

1/48 Monogram T-28A Trojan

I don't know which version Monogram did first, the A or B, but I completed the B, before I came upon this one. The only difference I can see is the cowl and the two bladed prop. Boxing in the wheel wells took as much time as building the res[...]

1/48 Monogram P-40

Back to basics. Straight out-of-box. I think this one has been around as long as the "Flying Tigers" themselves ! When I finally got around to building it, I discovered it wasn't a bad kit at all, for it's day. They're still re-issuing [...]

Monogram Superkits

In the mid to late Fifties, Monogram came out with a series of balsa wood and plastic airplanes called "Superkits". There were six total, P-51, F-84, P-40, Mig15, F-86, and the F4U. They were all in 1/72 scale. It was sort of the predecessor of[...]
