EA-6A, Electric Intruder, US Marines, Da Nang

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, finally finished my attempt at building a Electric Intruder from the Wild Weasel boxing of the 1/48 Revell/Monogram kit

Although not done as a Wild Weasel as I wanted to do a Vietnam aircraft

Used a mixture of the kit decals and a few from the stash to represent an aircraft of VMCJ-1, Marines, Da Nang, South Vietnam, circa 1969-72

The actual aircraft is an option in the box but in US Navy markings

Apart from a little detailing on the canopy frame, some slightly altered antenna and drilling out some of the various air ducts it`s what`s in the box

Paint slapped on with hairy stick as usual

Hope you enjoy looking at, Cheers Russ

Nice! Best one of these I've seen built up, how does it go together? I have one and have been wondering whether to give it a go

Very nice. I tried to re-acquaint myself with brushing lately-abject failure. My hats of to you!

Easily the best Intruder build I've seen; I found this thread on a wee tablet thingy and just had to leg it sharpish to a PC with decent size screen to see it properly.

And...it's absolutely perfect!

:goodjob: -all the way!

Thanks, It doesn`t go together too bad, there`s some big gaps in the undercarraige wells which I filled with PVA, quite a bit of filing and a smear of filler here and there on the airframe.

Really nice!

I'm not familiar with the left hand external pod.

What's this?

Thanks Antoine, I believe it`s a `chaff` dispenser

Nicely done Russ, I thought it was airbrushed till you said otherwise. What did you use for your main grey? I really like the tone of yours and I've been struggling to find a decent match for a 'nam F-4.

Thanks mate, it`s Humbrol 64 with a small amount of Humbrol 166 mixed in.

Great Job Russ, This was always the kit I wanted Hasegawa to produce, but now we have the hobby boss and Kinetic kits. The reveal one scrubs up well under your hand
