    Once upon a time a F-80 model found its way in my treasure chest. There it lay and grew old. After working so much in 1:32 scale I tried this little bird mostly for testing waterbased metal colors of Revell.

    At first Iwanted to build it OOB but than I grinded and rescribed it. This is the result. Cockpit is finished allready.

    There are some fitting problems with the fuseleage.

    That was my first Jet kit I ever bought, it was also the first time I bought an In Action series to use for details.

    What a great and fun model you have chosen!
