I love the description on the box as a "light" attack aircraft,I personally would hate to have come in for a light attack

by one of these damn things!

 

They are only light in comparison to their A-6 shipmate.  B)

Evening folk's,where to begin! I thought it best to prime in white no problem as can be seen,then I realised what a pain the gray would

be as soon as the first coat went on as the paint was thinned in the jar for spraying so down to the LMS for a fresh pot and even slightly thinned to

prevent the "drag" Tamiya paints do on subsequent coats it's still a pain! anyway happy enough after the third coat but all to do again in the next few 

day's,if all goes to plan they should look great in their markings.

Hi Steve,

 

brilliant builds! 

Amazing how smart the decals make them!

I could not miss your construction line with Viggen, Tunan, etc...

Where do you find all the cheap labour for this? Impressive!

 

Cheers

Good grief, you've got a canny production line going on there Steve! Taking me all my time to do the Stuka!

Always liked the A-7, I have a Fujimi one in the stash, was gonna maybe do it for this GB but have other plans.

 

:goodjob:

Morning folk's we're down to one now as the fixed wing one turned out a nightmare while fitting the bombs the outer wing came away which didn't

repair too well but I thought I'd live with it just to get her finished,no sooner was it patched up than the inner pylon and u/c door came off while trying

to handle the kit so very childishly it hit the bin! Anyway I'm persevering with this one and within a couple of hours of completion now.

I bought one of these at a show for a £1 then found the front canopy part No39 was missing...  Any chance you could salvage this from the bin ??

Very sorry to hear of the sad demise of your fixed wing build Steve but your folded wing bird is really looking fantastic and I'm looking forward to seeing her in the gallery.
