[Kit Review] - OzMods 1/144 - Grumman F9F Panther -
First kit from OzMods which ive been eyeing for sometime, never built a Ozmods kit before but looking forward to having ago at building this little beauty. Really find the Panther a real eye pleasing jet.
Was quite surprised by the packaging, since this kit comes with vac-foam canopy it would need more protection but arrived all the way from Australia perfectly intact.
All the sprues are quite detailed and seem to be blueprint perfect, not sure it you can see in the photo but has the best seat ive ever seen on a non ejection seat plane, really looks slick. When it comes to vac-foam canopy 2 is always a plus and nicely done white decals.
Since this a small run injection kit by a small company providing a fantastic kit which most of the large manufacturer would never release i can easily write off the flash on the sprues, knife and sandpaper will easily get rid of that.
Think you can model this as one of the jets from "The Bridges at Toko-Ri"
