Hey guys,
is anyone aware of a two seater conversion for the A-7 Corsair II?

heard about it, thought about it , but can't put my finger on it (so to speak).... :hmmm: :piliot:

 

Oh, and now on second thoughts: i might be mistaken by a mixup of aircraft: i had the impression the subject was a "prowler" iso the two-seat Corsair II (which i had as a vac but sold it a while back)....sorry!!

Funny, I thought that if I were to do another corsair, it would be a dual seat greek one

Seems like Paul Fisher has had some success with his photo crusader conversions. Maybe it's somethings he should consider.

DIY... my friend Patrick Bouclans built an EA-7L a few years ago. Not super easy but totally doable. I'll build one as well - one day.

'My problem with that is the vac form canopy'

If you master it, I'll vac it.

 

Sincerely,

Same here. If (and when) I can get the Trumpeter 1/32 kits (I'll need two), I'll convert one of them into a TA-7 version (both HAF of course!).

Only two-seater A-7 I'd be interested in is the A-7K.

I'd settle for a quality OOB single seater. Starting with an A/B boxing.
