F9F-5 panther, VF-111, Korea, 1953 FINISHED

Recommended Posts

since shipping parts half way ´round the globe for casting takes alot of time, i have put my corsair build for this GB on hold. unlikely i will be able to finish it on time.

keeping with the Korean theme i have decided to take a shot at this:

that being said, i have not been able to locate a pic of the real jet. it is supposed to be the counterpart of the famous "blue tail fly" (a panther made out of two battle damaged planes with the front part natural aluminum and the rear part blue). the "vice-versa" called plane was also made out of two wreks, only blue in front and silver in back. anyone know a pic?


i have bought the fisher kit from a member on here and coudnt wait to start it. i have spent some time removing the (minimum) flash and am intrigued by the construction of the one-piece fuselage and wing parts

pace is slow, i have been working on the landinggear and doors and painted them

i closed up the speedbrake because i prefer the lines on the panther unobstructed. the fuselage will be ready for paint soon
