AMT Douglas A-20G

March 21, 2021 · in Aviation · · 14 · 2.2K

My favorite twin-engined bomber of WWII, and probably the most iconic, as in overexposed, livery.
Relatively straight forward and basic kit-another member of the 20/20 club, and another lockdown build.

  1. Well done Bryan, it's also one of my favorites as well. I've done several of their A-20 kits and posted them here. Decent kit that can be built into a good looking model as you've show here. I like it.

  2. Great A-20, Bryan!

  3. Really like the faded paint and subtle signs of hard use.

  4. Really good finish set off by the outside photographs, definitely liked.

  5. AMT made several more versions of the A-20 all of them being solid kits on par with some of the Monogram classic's. Bryan, thank you for showing this chestnut its done to perfection. You don't see many of these kits built up. The type is one of the unsung hero's of the war with many of them being stationed in the back waters of the war effort.

  6. I consider the A-20 to be the prettiest of the twin engine light bombers in WW2. This model is a very nice representation of that series of planes. I built the Green Hornet many years ago and it remains one of my favorites.

  7. That turned out nice. This another kit that I’m ashamed to admit has dwelt unbuilt in my stash for 20+ years. Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. A nice clean build, with excellent paintwork providing the realism. I like this a lot.


  9. Good looking job, that nose decal is great

  10. Good looking A-20 Bryan. I've got tis kit on my short list and your work has inspired me to move it up!

  11. Very nice result, Bryan.
    A realistic looking Havoc.

  12. Very nice Bryan, I really like the A-20 and have a couple of those kits in my stash. Every time I see one, especially one as nice as yours it gets thinking about building one. I really do like all the medium bomber Gunship planes, the skull and cross bones very appropriate for its mission.

  13. A lovely Havoc! Paint work is really nice.

  14. Thanks for the kind comments, just a few left to cover all of 2020.
