  1. I've been encouraged by a respected member of this forum to provide some of my work for others to see. The last number of years I've struggled to finish and complete a kit. My building started in the 70's and the 80's and 90's, completed many and reaching a quality level that I was really pleased with. I have a good feeling working on this kit, I do see the finishing line relatively speaking. The LTV A-7 aircraft has been a favourite of mine for some time. And 2 seat versions of normally single seat aircraft as well a favourite. Yes the Hobby Boss Corsair has its warts, but I don't really see another on the horizon any time soon. My local hobbyshop had only the TA-7C available but it did include all the parts to build as an Air Force version. The South Dakota Air National Guard is one units markings I've admired with the Mount Rushmore art on the top of the tail. Those markings are included on a Xtradecal release. One aspect of the kit I disliked were the numerous rivet/screw details engraved everywhere. Most were filled with Tamiya surface primer, leaving just a hint of a few here and there that will show slightly after painting and weathering. The boarding ladder and steps will be made. I viewed the main wheels as a bit thin looking, so I sandwiched plastic card between the halves. The ejection seat seemed rather narrow and I've started to adjust it with Milliput. My work keeps me from progressing everyday and I am not sure how many installments I will have but my goal is to show my completed work in the finished model section.
  2. 152nd Tac Fighter Squadron, 162nd Tac Fighter Group A-7Ks visiting Edwards AFB for USAF TPS qual missions, March 1984. During the Test Pilot School systems phase, various units would bring in their aircraft to allow the TPS students to fly qualitative (i.e. no test instrumentation) evaluation missions of various aircraft systems. In this instance, the Arizona Air National Guard brought in A-7s with AGM-65 Maverick missiles for the exercise with TPS Class 83B.. 79-0462 79-0465 79-0470 80-0287 Thanks for looking, Sven
  3. Build details here Great kit to work on and well worth the time & effort
  4. Successful visit to Scale Scotland 2019 @ BT Murrayfield ... worth a visit if you havent been. Only downside .. wishful thinking that I could do as well as this ... Superb So after a few weeks and the envy having subsided , I've started on the Hobbyboss Corsair II , the A-7k version. Really like this kit and looking forward to having it in the blue/grey scheme. First up, removed the canopy crease by sanding it and polishing, then it was dipped in Klear ( or latest Johnson product equivalent) Next up was the cockpit.. basic seats but raised detail on IP which should be ok with supplied instrument decals. Ejection seats painted up and little bits n bobs added from spares box and wire to add interest. Seatbelts made from tinfoil sandwiched between some Tamiya tape. Excuse the poor photo but you get the idea .. Cockpit decals added and micro sol used ... Seatbelts might not be perfect but I'm well happy for a first time effort .. Cockpit fairings are a snug fit.. no glue needed but some weathering required later before the canopy is fitted. Overall fit of parts is superb in my opinion. Just a couple of gaps filled and sanded, especially the join in the engine intake ( moulded in two halves). Two halves now glued together and the centre fuselage seam filled and sanded. Taking care not to destroy any of the recessed panel lines and detail on this kit. Wings on and various underside pods and ventral spine fitted. Filler required for the wing joints but to be honest, not that much. Looking at reference pictures, the small arial between the rear cockpit & extended spine should be removed. I think this would impede the intake for air to air refuelling. Going to leave the horizontal stabilisers off until paint applied, as they are molded in one piece and a great fit. On the real thing, there appears to be a swash plate or similar ?? on the fuselage at the front end of them. This will be much easier to paint with the stabilisers added after. That's it for now... enjoying this kit but starting back shifts tomorrow so build on hold until later in the week. Happy modelling
