this was my summer project originaly planned for 2 months, but it took me more than 4 months to finish it.
you can find WIP thread here
kit: ZM A-1J + ZM weapon set 2
AM: Aires cockpit
Videoaviation Wheel Chocks USAF
Videoaviation MJ-1 bomb loader (early)
Videoaviation Fire extinguisher
HGW RBF stripes
Overall nice build with no major fit issues.
Painted with Mr. Paint and GSI C colors. Weathered with AMMO stuff (different panel line wash, some filters, streaking grime, fresh engine oil, black and airfield dust pigments).
Seatbelts made from HGW material, antenna from EZ line .
I have decided to finish it as airframe number 142058 (1972 configuration), because I just wanted to depict A-1J, with which Mr. Hukee flew at least once.
I´m quite happy with results although I made several errors, the most visible are insignias which should not be at this particular airframe.
Definitely l like USAF Spads with SEA camuflage, my favourite looks of A-1.
thanks for looking, hope you like it
