[W] A-7D Corsair II - Trumpeter 1:32.

Recommended Posts

I'm slowly finishing my MiG so it was time to pick up a new challenge. For a moment I thought about Tomcat but I get rid of this idea pretty quick. I almost decided for a F-117 but I have no clue how to paint it. This black camo frighten me very much. Finally I decided to switch to A-7. Quite ugly but eye-catching.

I'm not sure about camo - I'm thinking about SEA version wrap around which is without light gray belly.

I'm also waiting for an Aires set so in the meantime I started from armament. 

I chosed 12 Mk.82, 2 GBU-10, 2 Aim-9B and two drop tanks.

I'm fighting with armament adding putty, sanding and again putty and again sanding... We all know this:

Exhaust cover is very poor detailed:

As well as exhaust itself:

Air intake is also very bad:

And after dry fit I'm wondering how I will sand it with my chubby fingers:

Finally Aires set arrived. I tried to fit whell wells, so I had to cut some of the plastic, but it looks promising:

I had to get rid also the imitation of front well from the air intake:

I cut also some to the parts in the exhaust cover. I will try to do them from the proper size piece of HIPS:

Air intake was painted before gluing as later I wouldn't be able to paint it properly:

It will be hard to sand this putty:

Hi, Gelerth!

 

Looking forward to this one after seeing you work your magic on the Mig 23!

 

As for the intake, I believe there is an aftermarket option available, but perhaps some of the guys more versed in the A-7 can elaborate on, or confirm/deny that.

Thanks John. 

I could not find any resin intake here in Poland that's why I decided to do a kit's one.

Thank you Harv.

 

In the meantime I'v upgraded a canon as kit's one was terrible:

And started shading bombs and missiles:
