Hello everybody,

 

I`m going to build, as the title obviously suggests Trumpy`s 1/32 A-6E TRAM Intruder:

The aftermarket items which will be used are AMS Resin A-6E wheels, FOD covers, a pitot tube from Profimodeller, Eduards´ exterior PE and Quickboost seats which Lothar very kindly sent to me. For the markings I`m going to use  AOA Decals´ "The Intruders´ sandbox" and I will depict exactly this version:

I hope that I can achieve this typical touched up look.

 

Emil

I already started working on the cockpit and the radar with adding some wiring. It is not really like on the real thing but it makes things look busier

In addition to that I got the seats ready for paint, they are Gru-7 seats for a F-14A, so I just had to modify the ejection pull handle to make them suitable for an A-6E

You have to love the dirty touched up look of the navy birds. As Lothar has the front row I'll be in the second row annoyingly slurping my big gulp.

Yes, I really can`t wait to paint this beast. I made some progress today and slapped some paint on the cockpit and the seats

The colour came out a little bit too light but weathering will hopefully darken it. Next steps are finishing the detail painting and then weathering the cockpit up

But nothing compared to your scratch building abilities  ;)

No problem, i'm sure others may enjoy the images as well. What time period do you plan to have your Intruder in? Desert Storm or afterwards? How do you plan to display it as most times you don't see the engine covers on the a/c, especially during normal day to day operations on the carrier deck. Also do you plan to have the a/c loaded with weapons or just fuel tanks?

It is, according to the decals from Desert Storm. I plan on displaying it with the intake cover, but that isn`t sure yet. I will show the radar and one open engine cover, because Trumpeter offers the detail. So it`s more like a maintenance scenario. And I`m also tempted to make a bomb truck, which then wouldn`t be quite appropriate.

Actually you can have the engine panels open with a full load:
