Hello everyone! It's been some time since I posted any work on LSP. Since my Revell F-4 debacle I took a break from 1/32 scale and worked on some 1/48 projects instead. I decided to get back to my favourite scale and was looking for a modern but non-jet subject. I came across Kitty Hawk's OV-10D kit and despite some negativity surrounding the kit itself and the manufacturer in general I bit the bullet and got it. While I don't know much about the aircraft I immediately fell in love with its distinctive shape and overall agricultural look. The kit is an excellent candidate for super-detailing considering its large canopy and provided open engines. For this build, apart from the model itself, I'll be using AMS Resin's seats and True Details' wheels. The rest of the details will be scratchbuilt. So... Here goes!
It was setting on my door when I came home on Friday. Man have I been looking forward to this kit for some reason. I knew nothing about this aircraft 6 weeks ago except the USAF did not fly this version and Academy makes a 72nd Desert Bronco with Double Horse-shoe tail markings. Let's see, Horseshoes, Bronco, Peyton Manning, Colts Desert Camo................................................I'M IN LOVE! Those that know me know I love building In-Flight with pilots, Desert Camo Horseshoes, Peyton Manning , Andrew Luck, Colts, Broncos.....not necessarily in that order. I started to do some research and Brian started his review and got my self in trouble on colors . I have been paying attention to his build and can see some things I want check out in the cockpit. All that GLASS you can see for days. This kit reminds me of when I "Discovered" the English Electric F1A Lightning, picked up an Airfix 1/48 for half price and before long I had 2F1A, 4 F6 about a dozen Airfix, Hasegawa, 1/72 and 3 1/32 F1As and 2 F6. Then I bought a CASE of the latest F6 kits.
