  1. MDF Scaled Down #11 - The A-6 Intruder (9781999661687) Including KA-6D, EA-6A & EA-6b MA Publications The Intruder was the eventual replacement for the successful and long-lived Skyraider (as was the A-4), and was unusual in having a side-by-side cockpit arrangement for the pilots, which meant a wide nose that became well known due to its involvement in operations and deployments around the world. Entering service in 1963 in the Vietnam war, it performed all-weather and night attack missions extensively throughout the conflict for the US Navy and the Mari
  2. A-6E Intruder, VA-36 'Roadrunners', US Navy, USS Theodore Roosevelt, Operation DESERT STORM, Red Sea, January 1991 Kit: Italeri A-6E Intruder (#041) Scale: 1/72 Aftermarket: Hi-Decal decals, Airwaves belts Paints: Vallejo Model Color, Model Air & Metal Color, Lifecolor Weathering: Flory Models Wash, Mig weathering products All around good with with decent details. Came together nice despite the multi section fuselage. Built for the In The Navy GB, but did not meet the timeframe. Build thread:
  3. GULF WAR INTRUDER Nordic GB is closing down in under a week and builds are more or less done (still some final touches but getting close) - so I can concentrate bit more on the Navy GB! It's about time Vigilante is on it's way but I'm a serious serial builder so I need several kits to be on the go - so let's start a new one! Italeri Intruder. I have some of a soft spot for Italeri (and Esci) kits. Like this one, it's good enough details, looks decent. But still not overly complicated, all I need in two set
  4. Not really new, but quoted as such in the brand new Trumpeter catalogue 2015-2016, a 1/72nd Grumman A-6 Intruder/Prowler family. - ref. 01640 - A-6A Intruder - ref. 01641 - A-6E Intruder - ref. 01642 - A-6E TRAM Intruder - ref. 01643 - EA-6B Prowler Source: http://tieba.baidu.com/p/3494587466 V.P.
  5. I bought this at the model fair at Huddersfield last year. I used to love building Fujimi kits in the ‘80’s and early ‘90’s so I’m looking forward to getting stuck into this one. Also I’ve never built an Intruder before so it’s new territory. I’m not buying any additional parts, so it’s straight out of the box on this one, with perhaps a little enhancement along the way if it’s obvious and needs it. The plastic seems much harder than I’m used to with my last couple of builds being modern Airfix and Revell kits, but I don’t see that as a bad thing.
  6. Hello. I have been away for quite some time. Now, let me present you my first build of 2019. A 1/48 scale A-6E Intruder from Hobby Boss upgraded using Eduard's PE color cockpit set and exterior set. Hope you like it. If you are using Facebook, please follow my page: https://www.facebook.com/myanmarairmodeller/
  7. Hello everyone, I will be building this kit of the venerable Intruder. A plane well ahead of its time that could have performed a lot better in Vietnam if only they had better maps. I hope to build this one very nicely. This is what I did for today. I want to wait for the decals to dry properly to trim them well and make sure they get the texture from the plastic before going forward. Once the cockpit is ready I will figure the best position for the pilots' arms.
  8. Hi all, I was wondering if any of you know if it is possible to build an earlier A-6E from the Hobby Boss A-6E TRAM kit? I've read that the A-6E kit has the bits you need to build the TRAM version but wondered if it worked the other way around as I can get hold of a TRAM kit but want to build a straight forward E as I've got some nice decals from Furball that I would like to use, ideally I would like to do an A but believe there are not the bits in any of the E kits (other than the A/E one obviously) to do this. Many thanks in advance. Craig.
  9. Hello one and all, I have been meaning to join a GB for a while now. I was going to enter the P-51 STGB, but typically I couldn't find my decals for the aircraft... anyhow, I was looking at this one thinking that I don't own anything that I could use - yeah, I was a wee bit wrong there. A quick check of the stash proves I have about 15 x F-15's, a few Intruders, a few Prowlers, a Hawkeye and a Greyhound. After checking with Tempestmk5, I know what can and can't be entered into this GB. So lets go! So I can not build the F-14's I have for Ace Combat, however I can bu
  10. Hi Folks, This is the italeri model mostly built OOB. Not the best kit ever but good enough to get a correct Intruder. I only added miscellaneous details, relocated some fences on the wing, drilled some holes and applied some filler (wings, windscreen...). The only extra parts are the decals from Hi-Decal Line. I used H308, H307 Gunze paints. Hope you like it. Cheers
  11. This was quite a nice model to build. If you don't know me already, I usually paint my models only one color. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but in this case I think it did. I hope you enjoy. Custom mixed paint and brush painted: The frame was painted without any masking: Gears were a little too greyish. I know some of you might be drooling to weather this one, jajaja.
  12. This is the Fujimi A-6E, from the VA-115 ‘Eagles’ boxing. This is a really nice kit and I built it pretty much straight from the box with a few additions such as hoses and piping around the cockpit and undercarriage, plus the external armour plating on the intakes and under the wings. The Rockeyes are Eduard Brassin and are just beautiful pieces of casting – thoroughly recommended! Decals are from the kit, printed by Cartograf.

  14. Hello, it's been a while since I've been able to make a new product announcement, but today's that day I've made a set of full depth resin exhausts and nozzles for the A-6 Intruder family in 1:48, designed in particular for the Hobby Boss kits. I haven't tested them on any other kit, but they may fit or be made to fit the Kinetic or Revell kits as well. Even though buried deep inside, I just couldn't NOT provide a detailed J-52 business end as well, including a small photo etch part for the probes that stick out into the exhaust gas. Pictures: Assembled and painted (I could add more w
  15. Grumman A-6E TRAM Intruder detail sets 1:32 Eduard The Trumpeter 1:32 A-6E Intruder has been out for some time now, and whilst it is a super kit straight from the box, Eduard have decided it needs some improvement. They have recently released four sets of etched brass which cover the whole aircraft and the weapons it carries with replacement, and in some areas, additional detail. Naturally, as is the case with most Eduard sets, some of the kit details will need to be removed before the etch can be added, so read the instructions carefully before starting. Interior Set (32863) This s
  16. With too many Vietnam schemes not covered (and the A-6 being personal favorite), AOA couldn't resist releasing another big scale 1/32 A-6 decal sheet. This is a LARGE release, with four full sheets of decals. Focus is on four squadrons - two of which, VA-165 and VA-196, were tied for the most Vietnam A-6 cruises (5). Another is the last of the four USMC A-6 squadrons in Vietnam, VMA-AW-224 (the three land based USMC squadrons were covered in the first AOA release). And the last is VA-95, which deployed in 1973 and supported Operation End Sweep (mining clean up) along North Vietnam and had som
  17. Hi all, I've just released my latest product: a set of MB Mk. GRU5 seats for early Intruders in 1:48. The seats were used in all A-6A and EA-6A aircraft as well as in early A-6E until the mid 70's. The seats are designed to fit the HobbyBoss cockpits. I haven't tested them on Revell of Kinetic kits so I can't say whether they fit without modifications. The seats have individually placed harness straps and hose detail and come with a pair of drogue gun rods for each seat as well. Here are some photos: Direct link to the product: https://www.hypersonicmodels.co.uk/product/martin-bake
  18. Grumman A-6A Intruder detail sets 1:32 Eduard The Trumpeter intruder is a fabulous kit straight out of the box, with loads of detail included. But theres always room for improvement as is shown with the release of these etched sets from Eduard. Interior Set (32813) This set consists of two sheets of photo etched brass. The larger of the two, printed in colour provides the larger parts for the cockpit, such as all the different panels that make up the instrument panel, side and centre consoles. The smaller sheet contains a new vent and other smaller parts for the coaming are also

  21. I've always wanted a large scale Intruder,it's been my fave US Navy jet since I got hooked on the Jake Grafton novels ny Stephen Coonts. As you may know,I'm undergoing Chemo at present & currently out of hospital,so I bought this kit to take in with me for the next round to beat the boredom. Anyway,our electric went off today so to kill some time,I started the kit,Gave the cockpit a base coat as well as all the white bits.Photo's to follow tommorow once these bits are a bit further along.

  22. Grumman Intruder decals 1:32 Super Scale International Two new sheets of decals for the Trumpeter 1:32 Grumman A-6A Intruder have been released by SSI and they’ve been kind enough to send them here for us to look at. Each ziplock bag contains a medium sized sheet of decals and a full colour plan that not only shows the decals positioning but also the correct colours to use for the model. They are printed by Cartograph of Italy, so you can get an idea of the quality of these sheets. Both sheets only contain the national insignia, unit markings and items such as rescue arrows and intake
  23. Grumman A-6A Intruder Trumpeter 1/32 History The A6 was developed to meet the U.S. Navy's need for an aircraft that could attack ground and sea based targets in any weather, day or night. These needs generated a Request for Proposal in 1956 to which eight companies submitted no less than twelve design proposals. Grumman's design number 1280 was the winning entry and a contract was issued on March 26, 1959. The aircraft was originally designated the A2F1, and the first flight of BUNO 147864 took place on April 19, 1960. When aircraft designations were standardized, the A2F1 became the
  24. There's a new batch of Hobby Boss kits now available. In 1/48 there's a Recce version of the P-80 Shooting Star, the F-84F Thunderstreak, and an A6-A Intruder. In 1/72 there's an easy build A6M2 Zero. If anyone wants any of them, let me know, we'll have the Shooting Star and Thunderstreak in stock tomorrow and can get more in for next week, is more people want them. thanks Mike
