Douglas F-6A Skyray US Naval Test Pilot School 1/48 Tamiya


Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

Here is my last build, a Douglas F-6A Skyray in 1/48 scale from Tamiya in the colors of the US Naval Test Pilot School.

The model is painted with mainly Mr Paint colors. Few scratch details in the cockpit with a Reskit seat. Decals are from a Furball decal sheet. The ladder is a 3D LP Model one initially for the Skyhawk but shortened of one step.

I hope you enjoy my build as it was a pleasure for me.

Looks great. A bit 'too much clean' for me but still feast for eyes! 😊

Thank you, The Flogger! Yes, the weathering is light because it is a test pilot school plane ;)

i love it.

 

So nice to see a "Ford" in something other than VF (AW)-3, which has emerged as THE Skyray "Cliche" paint scheme.

Thank you, David. I like the paint schemes we do not see often and this one is attractiv for me.
