Heres the Hustler finished , it took me a long time and Im still not really happy with the finish but its all part of the never ending learning curve!! I put a Yak 9T of the same scale on the last pic to give an idea of the size . Build thread can be found here http://www.scale-models.co.uk/threads/monogram-1-48-b58-hustler.30168/ Thanks for looking , as always comments criticisms welcome , cheers tonyDSCN1864 [Desktop Resolution].JPG

Superb work Tony. All the extra effort you went to shows, this is a fantastic finish. Can't see any faults with the NMF from the photos, it all looks very nicely done. The subtle heat staining on the engines has worked well.

Boooooom!!!


She is a beast ain't she, that first shot (looking down on the hustler) is the one mate! That's the one you see on some of the old monogram box art. What monogram one was it Tony? My local HS has a few monogram versions in and why was you not 100% happy mate? Looks great to me

Cheers phil , theres a pic of the box art on the first page of the build thread , theres a link to this on the first post. It was the quality of the finish i wasnt happy with, the wings in particular were dust catchers and the large size and repeated handling all combined to affect the silver finish. It wasnt too bad though and a blind man on a fast horse wouldnt notice itthanks for the comments, tony

Are yes, remember seeing that now, this one is in my LHS along with two other monograms from the 80's... Tempting.


Well done again mate

I read all the comments and ran out of things to say as all have been said.


She's a real head turner and I'd be proud of that in my display
