The Pulaski Hustler in 1/48
by Joel Cordsmeyer
Convair B-58 Hustler
big 1/48 scale B-58 Hustler is available online from
This is a model of the Convair B-58
Hustler. The kit is circa 1970 from Monogram in 1/48 scale.
The kit has been rescribed and painted
with Alclad (first edition) paints. Total build time is about 35-40
hours. This was a fun model to build, but a little more needed to be
done because of its age. A must do is replacement of the nose probe with
brass tubing and piano wire. Because of its prominent position is was
prone to breakage ... often.
After painting the model was sprayed with
future floor wax straight from the bottle.
The decals are from Mike Grant Decals.
These consist of the general markings used as a replacement for the
Monogram decals (way to thick) and a small special sheet for the
'Pulaski Hustler' markings. These decals are excellent replacements for
the kit decals.
After decal placement Future was used
again to seal the markings. The background clear film disappears once
under Future floor wax.
The pictures were taken by Slava Maksymyuk using Canon Powershot G-5 and
edited using Adobe Photoshop. The background is from a picture obtained
from the internet..
