Daz's A-7E Corsair II W.I.P Thread

A bit strange about no decals for the instrument panel and side consoles, the Greek A-7H had them included on the sheet. Also do not bother about any nose weight it is not needed the model balances perfectly.
Keep the posts coming.

Not meaning to be critical but it seems you may have your nose bay in a bit skewed and therefore the accompanying fit issue.
You are using a Nikon D80 right? Is it on a tripod? Your pics seem a bit fuzzy. Maybe some of the camera gurus like Rich Reynolds, Rich C and Mike can help you with your settings mate. You really need to get the best out of that Nikon, its a GREAT piece of kit.
Cheers and keep it up.

I'm using my Fuji finepix E510 for the photos as the Nikon has been put away for the summer. And the airshow season.
Why? You won't wear it out mate. Use it, that's why you got it. Leaving in a cupboard somewhere, will possibly do more harm than good. There are still a lot of mechanical components that need to be exercised occasionally. Parts of the shutter will have grease on them, if unused this can start to cause sticking.

I've put the nose wheel bay in backwards, how the hell I mananged that I don't know, but it was probably a momentary lapse of concentration.
So I'll scrap this build and it was going so well too.
I do have the old Esci A-7E in the stash so I'll build that to replace this one.
Sorry again I feel so bad for letting myself down
What I will be using from this kit are the MER's and TER's the weapons and decals.
