Looking good. Those Monogram kits in the '90s are what got me back in the hobby, I've built a ton of them. Let me know if you are missing parts, I've got lots :)

After a disappointing first try to build this kit I put it away. But now that you reminded me of it I pulled it out and it looks like I'll go for round two. I primered the body with white primer and tomorow I will start sanding. Surprised that you had a hard time finding one. They were dirt cheap on ebay a while back. I probably have a few in my stash.

Keep up the good work! .... and lets see it finished!
