MWP (Metal Work Panels) Project " An american hustler " : Convair B-58 Hustler Monogram/Revell (1980) 1/48

Recommended Posts

Hi to all,

This is my first post on this Forum and to introduce myself to all of you I decided to share the 'An american hustler' project.
This is a very particular work performed on a very dated kit (Monogram 1980 reboxed) with all the panels in positive!
The project involved the complete rewriting of the panels and all the information contained.
The model was equipped with accessories of detail and improvement of the canopies (3) of the Lone Star Models, of the trolleys of the Scale Aircraft Conversions, of the exhausts Aires as well as of scratch building of parts such as a General Electric J79-GE-5A turbojet.
The model in question was completely covered with self-adhesive aluminum tape treated, oxidized and polished by performing the MWP (Metal Work Panels) technique
I think I have told you almost everything, and here is the project:

I always liked the shape of the Hustler. The way, you covered it with foil makes it appear even better. You can't beat the real thing, the aluminum shine is perfect.

Cheers Rob

Welcome to the Forums, George!  Talk about an entrance in Grand Style!  
The B-58 is one of the coolest of the American Cold War bombers, and by far the sexiest looking.  Your MWP products work amazingly.

Hey manufacturers - looking for a fantastic subject to produce; it's here the B-58. Perfect for a limited run/resin company. While we're at it, a B-47 wouldn't also be appreciated.🤞

Keep 'em comin

Thanks again everyone.

I am happy that the MWP technique has convinced you and I hope you will be able to try it on your favorite models soon.
For any questions you may have, do not hesitate to contact me.
One last thing, I think the B-58 Hustler made in MWP is really liked because basically, it used a coating material similar to the real one (Duralluminium):
