A 1/48 bug from a different era

Postby AndrewDoppel » Fri Jul 05, 2013 10:47 pm

1/48 Monogram Dragonfly that I bought at Expo for $5, as another fit for my Vietnam themed aircraft and to just build without any additional AM products. The kit goes together superbly as most of these old Monogram kits do :D . The only issue I had with this kit is the tail star decals not going down well due to all the bloody rivets! :cry: Anyway, I hope you like the finished product.

This aircraft is representative of a South Vietnamese Cessna A-37B of the 520th FS, Binh Thuy Air Base, Vietnam, which I decided to pack with a bit of punch; Napalm, Minigun and Mk82 bomb.

Thanks Paul. Great kit and I'm glad I picked it up given I walked past it twice before making the final decision to buy.
