Grumman A-6E Intruder VA 36
July 4, 2016 in Aviation
Hi there again,
I want you to show another model of my growing collection. This time it’s the Italeri A-6E kit in 1:72. It took me about 3 weeks to finish this beautiful kit. With the exception of those 2 bang seats all extra parts are self-made. The cockpit is actually completely new, as I thought the one provided with the kit as not good enough. The main and the nose landing gear also received a lot of attention and the opened avionic bay is scratch built as well. Coloring was done with Gunze Acrylics and several washes with oil colors. For the final weathering I used various pigments, nothing special. A little wooden base, the tractor, 3 figures and some other details, that’s it. It was a fun to build this kit and I’m pretty sure this will not be the last Intruder for my collection.
As usual if there are any questions please let me know.
