Ooo !  The Vikings logo should be White !

 

That's it. The horns on the Vikings helmet were printed in yellow, and should be (almost all) white.

Sorry about that folks, been crazy busy at work this past couple of weeks. Ok, this one will probably end up being easy but what the heck here goes.

Monogram Four Star Plastikit, copyright on the box that I can find is 1960. "Assemble this working model in dozens of different customizing combinations."

Yep you got it Too Old. It would be great to see revell-monogram dig the molds for this one out of the vault and reissue it at some point. That is, if the molds for this one even still exist.

This one might be a bit tougher. Tom Daniel proposed a kit to Monogram based on one of their existing 1/24 scale kits which was going to be called "Wood Shed". Which kit/tooling was to be the basis for this new kit?

I can almost picture it in my head, I used to build a lot of the old Monogram kits in my youth. But I can't remember the name. I did find that someone just bid $275 on eBay for the original artwork for Tom's proposal!
