A-7D Corsair II Italeri 1/72
Aside from the Hobby Boss standing in my stash as ultimate mold for A7 in 1/72, I couldn’t help myself, and must finish (if nothing else the one for sentimental reasons) this “old beauty”.
With all the “inaccuracies” and poor fit here and there, this is one of my favorite ESCI / Italeri molds. Built from the box, with added details in cockpit, resin pilot seat..etc, and one more complicated task, to make full length intake from the polystyrene sheet, which i did not managed very well, but still better than original shallow opening (as I didn’t want to put the lid on the intake).
AK colors and reasonable (i hope) amount of weathering. What I failed to fit as i wanted are the cockpit transparent parts … but can live with that. In the end I am satisfied, I hope you will like it too.
Greetings until the next finished model
