  1. Beautiful model Steven! Coincidentally, that same kit is "on deck" right now in my modeling work schedule. I'm planning the TRAM version. You sure did a great job; any advice or suggestions regarding this build? Thanks, Gary

  2. Thank you for kind words Gary. I did this kit quit a while ago but i do remeber the canopy was a bit of a challenge do a lot of dry fitting with the canopy. Other than that is was a fun build. Sometimes i dont think the RevellMonogram kits get enough respect, i enjoy them. Have fun with this one and post some pics when she's done. Good luck!

    • Thanks Steven. I'll watch out for the canopy. I love the R/M kits. It's funny that I didn't even know there was anything wrong with them when I started building 25 years ago. 🙂 I just figured all models needed a little "wrestling" to get them done. I do think it makes one a better model builder when there is some finessing required. Not that I don't appreciate better kits now, but I still have several more Revell/Monogram 1/48 birds left to build.

      • I totally agree. I have a healthy mix of old school and and new tooled kits in the stash. there's just an amazing feeling when you pull off a nice build with a less sophisticated kit

  3. Great A-6! Met a guy years ago that served on the "Never Dock" in the late 70's. Ops stories were crazy.

  4. Beautiful Intruder, Steve! I've built one Monogram A-6E, and have another in the stash, along with the Revelogram EA-6A, and the Prowler.
