1/48 B-58 Hustler Part 1
Revell's (Monogram's) B-58 Hustler needs no introduction! Whilst sitting at my modelling desk, I couldn't help but see how hard it would be to re scribe. The task actually turned out not to be too difficult - nice raised panel lines and straight lines, before I knew it the upper wing was done! This quickly lead onto the cockpit and a few other bits being built.........
The cockpit is very well detailed and comes together really nicely. The cockpit is painted in US barley grey with a slightly darker shade of grey used to pick out the panels. The dials were given a wash of black to make the detail pop out and the bright colours on the seat give the cockpit interest even though not much can be seen once trapped inside.
