1⁄35Building an Upgraded Kingfisher
Before the introduction of radar the scout/observation
plane was the eyes of the fleet. Used to seek out the, rescue downed pilots
and spot shots the Kingfisher did this job from 1939 until it was finally
phased out of front line service in late 1945. Monogram's Kingfisher has
been around almost as long as I have and longer than many of the modelers
that will be reading this article!. Overall itís a typical early Monogram
kit with raised details and a sparse cockpit detail. Recently, Cutting Edge
Modelworks designed a few resin corrective sets for this decent offering of
a historically significant aircraft.
The instruction sheet for the resin cockpit is fairly well done and constantly warns of the delicacy of the resin parts and the need to measure twice and cut once where any cutting of the plastic parts is needed.
