1/144 F2H-3 Banshee by Miniwing




1/144 McDonnell F2H-3 Banshee by Miniwing
Miniwing have released a new early series Jet the F2H-3 Banshee, first flying in 1947 it was introduced into service in 1948 before finally being retired from US Reserves in 1961.

The aircraft served with the US Army, Navy, Marines and the Royal Canadian Navy.

This kit is nicely produced and has that Miniwing signature format and feel; with well defined panel lines and a pleasing visual form. The main kit consists of a half dozen main components and a number of additional fine detailing parts. Interestingly the vac-form canopies have gone and they have been replaced by a clear resin/plastic(?) canopy. This will please the average modeler and frustrate the experienced modeller, but it is always hard to please everyone?
