Revell Monogram GB planned builds.

Recommended Posts

The next kit I would like to build is the Monogram F-5E Tiger II, this will be a nostalgic build that is 1 of 3 planned kits that will reproduce the kits my dad built for my brothers and myself while he was away doing training for the USAF.

Monogram for me in the 70's and 80's were the car kits my cousins built.

The only car I got was a 1/32 Porsche 904 GTS that could be built as a static car or a slotcar, lost and gone for long time

Should have been fun to try it on my Märklin Sprint track that I have here somewhere packed down...

 

I was more into 1/72 planes and managed to get hold of a P-51B and a P-6E Hawk.

Both built and finished but only the Mustang has survived.

 

I raided my stash and found these

 

60's and 70's boxes

I'm leaning towards a Skyraider or a Curtiss P-6E Hawk w/o a box

I'm looking at a second entry, the Tomcat is moving along good. I

want Revell's 1/72 F-105D, which is Monograms' 1/48 kit downsized

to 72nd scale. It's hard to find, if not I'll settle for Monograms' 1/72

F-105G.---John

No luck finding a Monogram 1/72 F-105D so I ordered a 1/72

Monogram F-105F. Should be here this weekend, I hope.---John

Fun boxart facts

 

The F-105G is molded in Olive drab,  F-105F molded in silver, well defined

 

The F-14A and F-5E are both molded in color, and the color is.... grey 🤨  wow....

If you really like colors try a Matchbox kit. Gotta love parts

in 3 different colors! Some made no sense at all.---John

I've got an F-14A, F-5F, RF-101B, and F-15E...i was going to do the F-5F for the Top Gun GB but maybe I'll post that one here instead. We'll see which of these I can get through.

It came in today, my official second build will be an F-105F

Thud, probably an early one flying out of Thailand in 1966,

NMF with OD around the cockpit area.---John

 Well, since the backlog of builds on the bench are moving right along and the Marauder build is going smoother than expected, I'll sign on to tackle another one. A classic from my childhood and one of my all time faves:

T2e_C16_F_z_QE9s3sq_Jcw_BSHKUUr1l_Q_60_5

 

  And I'll pop this one up with some extras...

I forgot to add what I was building here.

I love Starfighters. My youngest son said I should build one in a Naboo starfighter livery. I think that would be cool.

 

If I can get this done quickly, I may try to do an OS2U Kingfisher.

Hmm... does any one want to see a car? I have had the urge to build a car model, and I have some Monogram and Revell cars in the stash. I am not sure if I can deal with another Monogram airplane right now.

Sure, surprised we don't have a couple yet.

 Funny you should say that... This one has been poking at the back of my brain for some time now and I could use an OOB quicky just to get something finished:

I'll build Monogram's "Miller SNJ" OOB--well, assuming the decals hold up.

Since I am at a stand still on the Ed Force One while waiting for decals I thought I would break out another kit that I think I can build quickly enough to get it done before the end of the month.  I am going to throw a motorcycle into the mix.  It will be one of the Revell custom chopper kits.
