Convair B-58 Hustler (1/48 Monogram)

Recommended Posts

WOW, looks amazing and such high quality work  - thanks for sharing.  Love the Hustler but the NMF skill has thus far eluded me so have not tried to tackle that beast just yet but yours looks terrific - very well done.  I'm amazed all the tyres are sitting perfectly flat on the table - super work!

 

Ignore the nitpickers - the markings look terrific IMHO.  Great job on a great subject.  Will have to see on BritModeler your build thread.

FANTASTIC build, one of my all time favorite planes. Dad was stationed at Bunker Hill (Grissom AFB) when these were there. My sister and I got to sit in parked B-58 cockpit at an air show. Shawn G.

Magnificent, simply a beautiful build.

I've always wanted to build the B-58 and always found a reason not to. After seeing your Hustler, just might take a shot at it this winter.

Is there a link to the build on BritModeler?

Very impressive B-58 Seversky.

 

Were you able to locate a T.O-114 for the markings?

I find it hard to believe that such a big NMF aircraft was almost devoid of maintenance stencils, but you seem to have found a source to enable you to add at least some additional markings.

 

Or have you just added them semi-randomly for effect?

 

Not a criticism, your model looks really great!

My source of stencils is photo from the National Museum of the USAF in Dayton, Ohio (for Two-Component Pod).

Other added randomly.

You're a relative newcomer here, Seversky. Might I suggest you dip your toes into large scale waters?

Thank you, I've already started.

There is in my stock 1/32 Shenyang FT-6, Hunter FGA.9, CT-155 (Hawk 67) and waiting T-2E Buckeye. )))
