EA-6B FRANKEN PROWLER 1/48( first kinetic model ever and last)

Recommended Posts

hey guys, here are some pictures of my WIP on the Kinetic 1/48 EA-6B Prowler, slowly it is starting to look like a Prowler, still need to add some more weathering on the center fuselage section the nose will remain the same as the real Prowler dont get so dirty on the nose section and after the wings and the vertical stab

 

Kind of like how the walkways are coming along

Fascinating airbrush control.

Looks really good! I have read horror stories about that kinetic kit. Kudos to you for taking it on, outstanding air brush skills as well, and the weathering and shading makes me jealous!

 

Keep it up! Also are you going to have the wings folded?

Some mighty fine weathering. Nice work on the walkways ... they certainly look well worn

Yes it is a crappy kit, but with patience and dedication you can get a nice prowler, the worst is the fitting of wings to fuselage and the details that had to be done again rivet by rivet and all the panel lines redone

 

Yes i will do it with wings folded to save space on the shelve

Looks really good, and I can't wait to see this thing completed. I know the Hobby Boss and Trumpeter kits for the EA6 and or A6 variants, are a much better build, and go together really nice. 

 

I might try your weathering technique on my next jet build. I have no idea when that will be though, as I have devoted myself to armor as of recent.

Thoroughly enjoying following your progress and amazed at your creativity and workmanship as always.

I'm finishing up a 48th scale project myself: Tamiya's P-47 Bubble Jug ( in the non LSP forum). Terrific kit and of course a a NMF.

Keep 'em coming

Peter
