A-6E Intruder 1/72 Italeri

Recommended Posts

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.

Very, very nice indeed.  You have certainly captured the patchy weathered appearance of a carrier bird very well, without going overboard.

you have achieved a beautiful rendition of this iconic bomb truck! Shame nonetheless that it is not in gull grey over white scheme!

Hi Pelican,


I think you were very polite with the phrasing that "you applied SOME filler".

As I remember this kit is a little bit tricky...

I really love your paint job,especially the painting of details (wheels for example).

Now that is one very very nice Intruder. I loved that aeroplane in its heyday, and your rendition does it full justice. The finish and weathering look superb, and loaded with the Rockeye's and the Harm (I don't think its a Shrike?) it so looks the part.


Well done!

Thank you for your kind comments. Indeed @Terry1954 , it is AGM88 HARM by Italeri (some noze shape issue there)
