1/48 Monogram AD-6 Skyraider

Postby AndrewDoppel » Fri Oct 30, 2015 9:00 pm

There are some models I see which I think to myself I need to build, then when I get into them I lose interest. I started this 1/48 Monogram AD-6 Skyraider some two years ago and lost interest in it when I found all these fitting issues with it. Fortunately, I found mojo again for it over the past week or so to get it finished with after market decals from Impact Decals. So this afternoon I called it done. This kit I would have to say is the worst Monogram kit I have built even though the detail is good.

Looks good. It's funny, but I've only ever had fit issues on ONE Monogram kit - the Me-262. Maybe their molds are getting old?

Who doesn't like the spad!!! I've seen a few of these strut their stuff and it doesn't get much better than these big old girls.

Nicely done Andrew. Cheers,

AGW..
