Two are from Monogram, one in 1/48 scale the two other models are in 1/32 scale; all built OOTB except for the Helldiver, I have modified the spinner, added four blades propeller and I have drilled out the dive brakes and opened the cowling flaps. All were brush painted.


Monogram Curtiss SB2C-4E Helldiver of VF-84 onboard AC USS Bunker Hill in February 1945 .Built in 1967, I was 19 years old at this time.













The second is a P-51D Mustang from Monogram in 1/32 scale, built ootb in 1970 brush painted with Humbrol # 11 Silver and coated with Testor's gloss in spray can. The Galloping Ghost decals are from Micro-Scale I think.









The third is the venerable Hawker Hurricane from Revell in 1/32 scale built ootb and brush painted with Humbrol enamels in 1969. Decals are from the kit.

They look great especially the P-51!It is hard to brush paint silver enamel but you found a way to do it!

Your old stuff looks great, even after so many years. You are so lucky to have the models that you built decades ago...how did you manage to keep them over the years.

They wear their age well. Love the rivet work on the Helldiver.

I had hung on to some of mine, Those still look good after all this time, humbrol enamels were my choice then and I have started to re-invest in some now, they always brush really well and dry dead flat, great work Serge.

Best regards gk

Serge, as a kid in the 1960's, one of the very first models I ever saw was a friend's Monogram Helldiver, and soon my younger brother built the companion Monogram SBD Dauntless kit. Oh, how we loved all those operating features!

And now your images here bring to mind another happy memory: the late Jeffrey Harrison's delightfully nostalgia-soaked feature here some 12 years ago. http://www.hyperscale.com/features/2000 ... erjh_1.htm

Very appreciated. I keep mostly of them in show cases like this, and clean them once a month
