    Their website states 4 Skyflash missles which you can make out in the stack of sprues in one photo.

    A few more images from my personal collection of photographs.

    Really well done, always nice to see a twin engine prop kit. I like it.

    A very complete finish. The photography is well done, not much lost with depth of field. Beautiful.

    Getting close to applying primer and fitting of the front windscreen. My hopes for a smooth final fit of parts were ended when I saw how poor fitting the front windscreen was. More sheet plastic were needed before attaching the clear part. Small lights are present on the K model behind the canopy, the bases of there 3 lights were glued and sanded slightly. Landing gear doors and avionics panels which are opened will be thinned down for the better scaled appearance.

    Nice builds, I almost forgot about those paint schemes. Special paints always a good conversation piece.
  7. It looks like it's ready to take to the air, or at least the display case. Well done.
  8. That one really looks the part. Well done.
  9. I love the mottling. Your techniques make it look like 1/48 or larger, very effective.

    A diversion for my Ksair. My plan was to use the markings of the South Dakota ANG but the Xtradecals seem to have an error as to not providing opposing greys for codes and numbers. I will use the Des Moines IA unit instead. Both reference pictures I found of the aircraft show the paint as matte finish. The intake will be covered with a typical soft type made with milliput. As well notice I used .015" plastic on the leading edge to give them a slightly beefier look. A little more fill work on some seams and checking the panel line scribes before priming. The Reidair publishing of the A-7 is a great reference and answers many questions about the details. The raised panels on the kits were sanded flush as I thought they were a bit over done for this scale.

    I would think the market would be flooding with aftermarket decals?
  12. Gene, how much was shipping from Japan?
  13. Everything looks fantastic. Craftsmanship, display and photography. Very inspirational.

    Thank you for showing us mortals how to properly build this kit. Fantastic finish.

    A small investment for my color slide/photo collection, a scanner. I am adding 2 images taken by myself in 1988. There will be more added to this project in the coming days. Working on the intake but now debating scratching an intake cover.
