The Spad is out of the Bag....A-1E / AD-5 Skyraider conversion

Recommended Posts

Considering that all the visible ground personnel are in civilian attire perhaps this is a pic of the first or early mods still at the Douglas facility.

Would explain the cannons and pylons, just a thought.

So, in and amongst my casting and mold making i have made up a master for the funky ship made life raft seen on the Guppy depicted on the kit decals.Near as i can tell the fairing is red, with a yellow tip, and pretty beat up.The raft folded up and strapped into it is most likely yellow, and the straps black. This hangs on the main pylon on the port wing as seen in the picture of the real airplane...

Paul, couple of questions....

Will the little life raft be included?  If not, available on your website to add to my order?  I'm building the gray/white Guppy in the photo.

And any update on decals??
