1/32 AV-8b

December 18, 2012 · in Aviation · · 3 · 3.7K

Built before all the resin extras...

Removed the GPS antenna the Day attack bird did not have it

Stretched the outboard pylons The kit parts were too short

Filled the divot on the inboard pylons. The divot is not there

Re shaped the nose a little

filled the vent on the ventral strake...The B day attack did not have it.

Altered the kit pit. The Day attack had only one CRT...not two. Rebuilt the rest of the board to look like the real one

Added plastic to the left hand cockpit sill as the part is too short...also this was done to the firewall behind the seat...again to short.

Corrected the intakes at the wing root to a proper intake position...not the strait down look gives you

Filled the the Faux gun position

added rotary cannon face in the "gun"

Det cord added from Flying leathernecks

Mavs and mounts from the hornet

CBUs from the eagle
