1/48 Monogram Convair B-58A Hustler

Gallery Article by Peter Doll on Sept 2 2003

 

This is my first contribution to ARC.  This is my B-58 Hustler built straight out of the box. A lot of sanding was necessary to shape up this bird and getting looking to the point where I was satisfied.

The specialty is, that the whole airplane is completely covered with simple kitchen aluminum foil, which was brought onto the model with a clear cote. All rivet details and panel lines had to be removed first and restored after plating. This was a lot of work you can imagine. But finally it looks like the real thing.

Decals came from the box and I added a few stencils.
