A blast from the past! After the Revell F-86D (link), Mono Chrome is to repop, in early 2021, the vintage (1992!) Academy 1/48th Lockheed T-33A Shooting Star kit with JASDF markings under ref. MCT502.

Having as target the Japanese market, this vintage kit can't obviously compete - except maybe for the price - with the more recent Great Wall Hobby (GWH) 1/48th T-33 kits - link

  • Homebee changed the title to 1/48 - Lockheed T-33A T-Bird/Shooting Star by Mono Chrome (plastic from Academy) - box art+schemes - release in 2021

The main "problem" with this kit (originally Hobbycraft), much older then the Academy boxing, is the fact that it represents a canadian CT33 Silver Star, with the proper nose for a canadian built T33.
