Finished -- 1/48 Monogram B-58 in foil

Recommended Posts

Well, this has been a long journey. I started this build in March 2018. The next month I put the kit on The Shelf Of Doom because I became feed up with the poor engineering of the model. In June, 2019, I decided to finish the kit. It took three months, and a number of sheets of Bare Metal Foil, to finish the kit. The WIP is here: 

 

Following are some photos of the finished build.

Really beautiful. I'm amazed at how realistic you got the landing gear. They look like the real thing. The whole model is a tribute to your hard work.

The decals worked great!!! The smallest text is readable and the carrier film is clear.

John, simply beautiful work.  I really enjoyed following the WIP as I learned alot just from watching you solve the myriad of problems with this kti and regenerate it from the shelf of doom.  Congratulations!

Stunning!  Nothing beats a bare metal finish done in bare metal foil.  Thank you for perservering.  The Hustler is a beauty and you did it well.
