1/48 Douglas A-20 by AMT
Lots of aftermarket items added to this build. The engines, cowlings, propellers, control surfaces, cockpit, control panel, guns, and wheels. Foxbot decals were also used to replace the kit ones. I fabricated the pitot head on the fin, the retractable foot rest and the wing tip navigation lights. I also opened the port side canopy slide window as well as drilling out the upper canopy deck holes.
. Since I decided to have the open cockpit deck I thought additional detail would enhance the cockpit roof so I added the three sun screen rods and lock down latches. Eduard photoetch parts were also used for cockpit detail. The model represents "Perks Pet" an A-20G-45 of 388BS, 312BG, Philippines, Summer 1945.
