F9F-5 Panther, Grumman. 1/32nd, Fisher. Part 1
Fisher Model and Pattern issued a 1/32 kit of the Grumman F9F-5 Panther as kit number 3201 in 2005. It is a very impressive kit in full resin with additional etched metal parts and nice decals including stencilling. The Panther kit costs about U$ 150,= and although at first site not cheap, you get a very impressive and nice model well worth the money. Certainly compared to good injection moulded 1/32 kits , the price is competitive

F3H Demon. Emhar kit EM 3002. 1/72nd
I had expected the kit to be crude but ended up impressed with its accuracy and good fit. It really was an easy model to complete. Note, in checking a June, 1992 review of the kit in SAM, I found that Emhar produced two versions.

RF-84F Thunderflash. Italeri Kit 1108. 1/72nd
In the early 1980s, Italeri (then called Italerei) issued kits of the F-84F and RF-84F. These kits featured a number of inter-changeable parts and represented the technology of the time – raised panel lines and sparse cockpit detail. Italeri have recently re-released these kits in new boxing and with new decals.

F-84 G Thunderjet. Tamiya. 1/72nd
All in all, the kit was a pleasure to build and both the kit and the aftermarket decals went on well. I used Testors Model Master Metalizer paints to duplicate the natural metal finish.

Convair F-106 Delta Dart. Hasegawa. 1/72nd
The model is from Hasegawa, an old kit in /172 scale. The model is rather simple, needing additional detailing.

Boeing X-32 JSF. Italeri Kit 1208. 1/72nd
The Italeri kit assembled without any major problems although I made a minor change to the sequence. I glued the intake assembly, parts 6A and 7A, to the lower fuselage rather than the upper. I wanted to ensure a clean joint inside the air intake and felt that I could clean up any problems when the upper and lower fuselage joined.
