    Username, Meatloaf109
    Name, Paul
    Category, Intermediate
    Scale, 1/48
    Manufacturer, Revell-ogram
    Type, North American F-86
    Aftermarket, none, except decals for "The Huff". And, possibly, bit of foil.

    I love the F-86.
    Really, I do.
    All that lovely alluminium. I will be putting on some panels of foil, just to mix things up.
    "The Huff", though, is a real example of "Nose Art". No naked girls here, just a dragon.
    Huffing on stuff.
    Circa 1953.
    I wish that Revell would stop putting their mark on the models like they do. It was a Monogram kit, in the first place, but, Damn it!
    Seriously?!
    Couldn't they brand this thing inside?!?
    Do they not know that this is not a toy, and that there are real modelers out here!!!
    O.k., sorry, I got carried away.



    Allright, I have calmed down now.

    Nice one! Agree about the Revell logo. They got sensible on my Mossie and put it on the inside.

    Rawr!!! I feel your pain Paul for these re-boxed kits you end up buying something more expensive sometimes because you think its a better kit, only to find it is a rebox with cool new decals or something :D

    Good one Paul. I agree about the trade mark positions too - rather silly, even though Revell and monogram are the same company, with a complex 'trade name' background.

    Thanks!
    I figured this one is going to be OOB, until I do the foil and decal stuff.

    The plastic is brittle and not at all like the classic Monogram kit. There are several things that are not the same, as I remember, but there are lots of things that I don't remember.
    Like most of the '80's....
