Skyraider Weekend Update!

 

Here's a few pics of the kit with assorted bits & pieces, we're busily casting up parts, the decals are at Cartograf being printed and I need a nap!

Pretty much the whole enchilada less the decals .

Assorted interior parts and lumps and bumps.Yankee seats with rockets as well as Douglas seats are included.The 3 little lenses for the gun sight will be in clear.

The plugs to alter the wheel wells snap in from inside the wing, and there's a plug for the oil cooler outlet as well as the correct center pylon.

The canopies in place.

I have a question on the instrument panel. Will there be a clear part and decals for instrument faces?

I’m sorry for being slow here but this A-1E/AD-5 above is a separate conversion for a USAF two-seater, yes/no?

Yes Anders. This is a resin two-seater (USAF) conversion for the Trumpeter single seat kit. Navy versions will be released next year.

Thanks Thierry for the info. Still, I thought the Navy version was already out?
Will have to double-check the Fisher website. :)

Edit: Ok, I now see that the USAF A-1E is a pre-order item and the US Navy version comes later.
My apologies for any confusion caused.
