Special Hobby 1/72 scale Twin Mustang F-82G

The finished model looks menacing in its gloss black night-fighter scheme.

By Paul Boyer
Published: November 8, 2010
Special Hobby’s F-82G is neither a clone nor a copy of Monogram’s kit. There are more pieces, due in part to the addition of excellent photoetched-metal details such as seat belts. A few interior parts, exhaust manifolds, and rocket launch rails are molded in resin. The canopies are injection-molded, thin, and clear, but each is molded in one piece; if you want them open, get out your razor saw.
