Hobbyboss 1/48th A-6A Intruder
December 13, 2015 in Aviation
Amongst my favourite modelling themes is US Navy aviation during its grey and white period and those colourful squadron markings. So I’d like to start my US Navy theme with the Grumman A-6A Intruder.
I had long looked at Hobbyboss’s 48th scale A-6A Intruder, but stalled at its £49.99 price tag. I had previously built Revell’s version (pics included) and wondered if the huge price difference was worth it.
My dilemma was ended when I saw Amazon offering the Hobbyboss version for £32.95 post free and my resistance ended.
Having built it I have to say that yes it would have been worth the price difference. I got lucky but the difference between the two is considerable. I would upon reflection paid full price if necessary quite happily.
The Revell kit is good, but the Hobbyboss one is on an entirely different level.
