I had started building the Wildcat three weeks ago while I was waiting for Amateur Airplanes’ guest post.
Guess I got carried away when I opened the box.
I got this sudden urge to start building the Wildcat.
Just a little at first.
Let’s build. It’s never too late.
I’m skipping a few steps here…
I then got this uncontrolable urge to start painting the Wildcat while my cat was not around, first by making my own homemade paint, and testing it on two other projects: the Monogram Avenger and the Monogram Dauntless, both vintage model airplanes I had in my stash.
I just could not stop testing and painting.
I could not control myself while my cat was not around.
Finally to calm down a little, I compared the Monogram Wildcat with the Otaki Corsair and Otaki Hellcat that I had built in the early 80s.
You know the rest of the story don’t you?
