Box scale oldies
March 3, 2016 in Aviation
Here are a pair of box scale oldies I recently completed, the A-5A Vigilante from Monogram and the A-3D Skywarrior from Revell, I tried tweaking both of them with a little detail. I used the kit decals from the A-5 as you can tell from the yellowing, I added an ejection seat to the front cockpit, also added F-4 exhaust cans and a pitot tube to the nose, and plenty of filler. The A-3D I roughly converted to an EA-3B with kit bash decals of an EA-3 of VQ-1 on board USS Kittyhawk in 1973, modified dove tail, bottom fuselage canoe and more filler. I would have built the A-3 out of the box but the kit decals in the SSP reissue kit were actually for their old F-111 kit. They were a fun build.
