i don't know a great deal about Skyraiders actually. However i do know the early version single seat ones went thru some subtle but defininte detail differences, so with the multi misson variants in the mix i imagine the AD is fertile ground for all manner of aftermarket conversion parts.

 

I think i've seen more Trumpeter kits built up than the Zokei-Mura, and to my eye they don't look bad.

One thing that doesn't look quite right to my eyes is the prop with the Trumpeter kits. What do folks plan to do to correct the prop? I notice that AMS offers new prop blades for the Trumpeter Skyraider-- is this the way to go?

I talked to Dan O'Hara Saturday, and he said he's really looking forward to how this eventually turns out, as am I.

I was going to procrastinate tonight, but decided to wait.

Next some other pics that PB sent into the cosmos......Grrrr

 

This is just a general view of the form, before I got started into the weeds...There is an AMAZING amount of detail difference between the single and multi place  Spads, like all projects this one is trying to eat me, but I digress...

​WOW!!  it look very fantastic conversion set Paul! :goodjob: 

I want to see how the casting process of the cockpit clear parts has been done and definitely it'll come out with very impressed results on this "Fat Face" bird,

because it's all about the look and stand out for this multiple seats version Spad... 

by the way the fuselage come with recessed panel lines? 

Tom,  ;)

Do you any other parts and pieces that we should consider when building Paul's Navy conversion combined with the Trumpeter AD-4.  If ordering from Sprue would like to get everything in one batch to save shipping.
