Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Just finished the missing Mohawk from my collection, so I thought I`d share some pic`s

Built almost completely OOB

With just seat belts, aerial wires added and a few bits of wire here and there.

Decals are the kits and I still had a bit of silvering to paint round

Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking

Cheers Jean,

Glad you like it. It`s about the same size as a Skyraider, so not too big

Nice work Russ, did you make the revetments from scratch?

Rod

Thanks Rod,

The revetments came from a couple of Vietnam Backdrops by Noys Minatures. Unfortunately they`re a bit too small for anything larger than a Bearcat or a Skyraider at a push, so I chopped the revetments off and stuck them on some plastic sheet to use separately.

Excellent build and finish Russ,a very interesting aircraft I know I built one in 1/72 scale many years ago I can only think Hasegawa as my LMS used

to stock the range.

Really nice build, the tonal variation in the paint scheme really makes it pop with realism given the age of the kit.

I also love any Nam era aircraft, and you don't see well made mohawks everyday!

That's a gorgeous build. I rarely build post WW2 a/c, but I have one of these in my stash 'cos it just looks so interesting. Can't wait to build it; doubt it'll look as good as yours.

That is one very very fine build, don't laugh lads, but this one and the A-6 remind me of "Mothra" of Godzilla fame...especially this one with the way the front fuselage is designed.
