In 1973 MONOGRAM thrilled the modeling world with a new 1/72 F-82 TWIN MUSTANG. Forty-three years later, she still looks good.

Great kit. Have built several and have several still in the back room. There are two F-82 being restored one in Douglas Ga and One in Anoka. I think the air & Space has two, the latest one they forced the CAF to return. The A/C in GA can be seen on WARBIRDS News. The builder post updates every month. he is building a beauty.

I grew up with these Monogram kits, and they still look good today. I like the sharp molding on this one, and pilot figures that actually look human. The decal sheet provided with this issue is especially nice too!
