Hi guys,

back in the hobby after 5 years.

This is my 3rd completed model in past 5 months.

Its not perfect, still have some problems with clean build and need to develop my skills, but im trying hard :)

 

Made OOB, just added some wiring in cockpit and reallocated landing gear

It went together really well, decals were challenge a little bit (but in my case all decals are challenging still :))

It was planned as relaxing build along with my A-7E build and definitely it fulfilled my expectations.

 

Used Tamiya and GSI acrylics, and Valejo for details, plus Alclads, weathering done with AMMO`s stuff.

My plan was to use just some gentle panel wash for the finish, as the orginal looks clean almost on every photo I saw

but at the end its overdone little bit in my opinion, but I like it that way as well :)

 

thanks for looking

jan

I just move them 3mm to the outside and drilled new holes, it just looks more correct in my eyes.
