Kittyhawk A/T 28 B/D Trojan finished, addendum


Recommended Posts

Probably not the best idea to be building a kit of a company who just closed the doors to operations but, I never bought it as an investment.

I've ordered the Aires resin office and wheel bays, on sale at HLJ and have begun by building up parts I can work around not needing the upgrade parts.

The control surfaces have had the trailing edges thinned as much as I dare and, assembly is beginning on the engine.

I'll be stealing...re-purposing... surplus parts from an Academy F/A 18 (bombs) and brass gun barrels for a HK B-17 perhaps more as I move along.

-Disclaimer- This model will not represent an historically correct aircraft, merely represent a strike armed T-28 aircraft of the era. 

The box top


The intended color scheme (if I get that far)



Some of the parts-now in progress at this time




Thanks for looking

Still tinkering on the Trojan

working on the ordnance tonight. Painting in progress, Alclad steel overcoated with chipping medium and olive drab;



Going to go with a "borrowed" rocket pod. One fully loaded, here with cannon shells stolen from Trumpeter Su 27 and fitted to look like rockets



What the layout may resemble when loaded if I get that far;


Thanks for looking
