Vintage Monogram Kit: Cessna A-37 Tweet
I always love this little jet in all it's variants. I especially like the attack version in it's all grey tactical paint scheme with low-vis markings. I recently found these old pictures of an old build. I do apologize for the horrible photographs but it is all that remains of this model. It was sold off some years ago.
I built this before the release of the newer Trumpeter 1/48 A-37/T-37 release. It is the old Monogram original release of this aircraft model and was the only game in town when built in 1/48. I recall purchasing aftermarket resin cockpit accessories, and adding lots of little details. The pilot is from the kit. I also needed to purchase after-market low-visibility markings. At the time of this build my weathering skills were somewhat rudimentary but I had some fun trying to make it look worn and weary. Most of my energy went into bringing the big, and wide-open cockpit to life. I also believe I did some re-scribing on this build which was most likely a 1st for me. I still dont have that skill nailed down and avoid scribing like the plague...LOL. Hope you can enjoy my blurry pics!
