Resin for the  Monogram kit

Starfighter Decals has produced a most welcome upgrade set for the still very nice Monogram 1/72 F7F Tigercat. This is a complete resin wheelwell set. It consists of three wafers/sprues that provided the nose and main wheel wells. The nose gear well is a single casting that simply needs the nose gear installed. The main gear wells are a bit more complex. Each consists of a floor, two sidewalls and a rear section. There are also a pair of Glycol tanks that are to be installed prior to the placement of the main gear struts.

This does require a bit of cutting to remove the previous mounting holes/posts, but Starfighter provides complete assembly and modification instructions for you. This includes a painting guide.

In all, a very nicely molded set that will add a huge amount to your next Monogram Tigercat build.
