  1. Hi everyone, Thought I`d show you some pic`s of my latest effort; yet another Skyraider... This time Tamiyas 1/48 A-1H, completed as an aircraft of the 514th Fighter Squadron, Son Vuong Flight, South Vietnam Air Force Circa 1962-63 Made a few alterations to the base kit with deletion of one antenna on the underside and fabricated a large blade antenna for the rear fuselage, removal of the tail hook and made blanking plate, Bombs came from the spares box and as some pic`s showed them quite lightly loaded, I thought I`d do it that for a change
  2. Howdy All, Thought I`d share some pic`s of my latest effort, Revells reboxing of Monograms 1/48 Texan kit Completed to represent an aircraft of the Air Training Center, Nha Trang, South Vietnam, where they were used..... ...to train South Vietnamese pilots between 1954 to `56 until the training was relocated to the USA. Built pretty much from the box ( as there`s not a lot to add that Monogram didn`t provide ).... Exceptions being: wiring harness for the engine, seat belts and some aerials. Decals came from a Hobbycraft Beaver, the
  3. Hi everyone, Just finished the Monogram 1/48 Skyraider that I originally bought to enhance my attempt at the old Matchbox kit, but which I decided to build instead. Finished to represent an A1-H from the period between the colourful Counter Insurgency Grey and the eventual adoption of the standard USAF SEA camouflage In the markings of the 516th F.S., DaNang Air Base, Republic of Vietnam, 1966-67 and used for Clandestine Special Operations ( as described in several references but what they were is not made clear ) Inspiration for the scheme came from Ospr
  4. Hi Everyone, Here`s another addition to my `Flying Dragons` South Vietnam Air Force collection and an aircraft I never envisaged building as regards Vietnam Tamiyas 1/48 Storch kit Converted to an MS 500 Criquet as used by the fledgling South Vietnamese Air Force in the early 1950`s Firstly as a Flight Trainer and later as a Forward Air Controller (FAC) Most of the parts to do it were in the box luckily, the only additions being a couple of power bulges on the engine cowling and some after market decals from Hannants. I had to sand of
  5. Hi Everyone, Just thought I`d show some pic`s of my attempt at converting a Tamiya 1/48 A-1J to a A-1E using nearly all the bits from Matchboxes finest. Completed to represent an A-1E of 524th FS, Nha Trang AB, VNAF although the decal instructions put it as 412th FS, so I could be wrong. Actually I only used the Tamiya wheels, retraction linkages, prop and cowl flaps that I salvaged from a previous build ...... that got crushed when a picture fell on it. Improvements to the Matchbox kit include; air scoop on the tail, wing fences on t
  6. Howdyall, Finished this one just before I started back on shifts earlier in the week.. Trumpy`s 1/48 Cessna A-37 Dragonfly Completed to represent an aircraft of; 520th Fighter Squadron, & 74th Tactical Wing, 4th Air division at Binh Thuy, 1970 Built completely OOB except for whip aerials and decals... which came from Print & Scale sheet 48-076 Sanded the top of the tail pipe down as they`re a bit curved front to back... and deleted a few of the blade antenna as befitting a VNAF airframe. Hope you enjoy, Thanks
