1/32 Intruder A

Recommended Posts

Nope nothings is in yet. Not even started on the gear yet.

 

thanks for the nice words guys. I have more or less completed the decaling. Too many stencil for my linking, so not all went on....

 

might paint on the green slashes on the canopy frame as the decals look suspect. Due to some screw up on my part....

 

pics soon, after that is to dirty it up, get going on the gear...and weapons...and the final put together.....

 

will put some pics on soon.

around a month before the group build event, and around a month and a half before I move overseas....for a few years....

 

gives me me a few weeks to finish it off and pack n store all my modelling stuff......and I think it goes without saying I got lot of junk....

I love what you are doing here, your painting is very inspirational. Once I am done with my Su-25, I will do an Intruder, I love mudmovers:)

 

Cheers,

engines are in and covers are tested in place....they don’t fit too well.....also I got one of the exhaust rings wrong way on...will tidy it up....

 

panel and the shroud is in......testing the wings, still can’t decide it’s to be folded on extended......maybe one of each......it’s going to be in a case n left at my family home.....as I don’t think it can follow me on my relocation..

Nice looking A-6 however I think the antennas on the kit pylons are too long and skinny, here is what they look like in case you want to replace them:

Looking really nice! Man, that is a big model by the way it looks on your work table!

I need to do one of these. One of our club members flew them in 'Nam. Had three shot out from under him, and dumped one in the drink due to a cold shot (that's the one I want to do). It is actually modex 510 of the Black Panthers, as on the Trumpeter boxart, although not the same plane. His was an earlier a/c on the USS America with different tail code and bu number.

Hi guys

 

thanks for the motivation.....n good words.....

 

jari - thanks for the info, but I will leave it be....as I am already running behind schedule.....

 

it also a so a sad time for me, early last week, a very dear friend and modeler past away suddenly....he was a close friend and a very talented modeler as well as other things. Life is so fragile and uncertain....he had everything going for him.....and taken in his prime....rip brother u always will be with us....

 

managed a bit of work, getting the smaller bits done n it’s taking forever......next will be the weapons....and hopefully final assembly.....as you guys pointed out, it is big.....not much in exciting pictures

also decided to paint on the slash (not to sure if it’s the right word).....the decal did not look too good.....it was a pita to mix the green to match.....but I think it’s close enough...

 

hope to have a decision on the wings by the next update. Stay safe n god bless
