Hi guys,

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

jan

Jan, that is a simply stunning build! the weathering is some of the best I have ever seen, incredible realism. Love the oil stains on the centerline tank, haven't ever seen that done like that before.

 

Cheers,

 

Marcel

WOW! Great looking Skyraider! Can you imagine the thrill a young 24 year old Lt got flying to suppress the enemy so the rescue force could go in and pick up a downed crewmember! Beautiful tribute to some brave pilots and a rugged airplane!!

Really nice build! I have a opportunity to purchase this kit for a really good price. I'm teetering on rather to buy it or not because it's not a WWII but it is a prop and it is huge. But looking at this build I'm beginning to lean towards purchasing the kit!
