WIP – Monogram A-26C Invader
May 29, 2013 in Aviation
Here’s the latest project from the Mexican Skunk Works, deep in the swamps of southeast Texas. 1/48 Monogram A-26C. Started building this one about 11 years ago. It sat partially assembled on the workbench while I built a bunch of RC models around it, until I got the itch to get back into plastic modeling. Decals are from an Aeromaster sheet called “Marauding Invaders” (part 3, I think) that I found on a Squadron sale promotion. It was the kick I needed to finish this one. The checkerboards are for a recon unit, but the airplane was already built and I wasn’t about to rip the turret and bomb bay out of it. Besides, I Iike the color it adds to the airplane.
Need to finish the decals, weathering and get the landing gear and props on, and she’ll be done. I think I’m going to mount this one on some kind of an airfield base.
