Trumpeter A-7E VA-192 Golden Dragons

Recommended Posts

Originally build straight from the box then a crash and a partial rebuild - my own doing.....I need to replace the seat too.as the Navy seat was lost during impact...somewhere!

I hope you dont mind seeing this one again but I took some better pics after I patched her up.

Kits decals for the CAG bird which I believe was lost in 1972. I've read that the Golden Dragons dropped a huge amount of ordnance during their A-7 tours over Vietnam so she is bombed up to the hilt.

Wow Joe,

 

That's the kind of weathering I like, real and used, got two on my shelf with Aires pitt and will certainly gonna give it a shot,

too bad Zacto set is not around anymore ......

 

For an out of the box man, I love, big time. 

Dan.         :goodjob:
