1/48 Hasegawa A-7E Corsair II

I mostly model armor but lately I've wanted to try an aircraft as it's been probably forty years since I've built one. This one I found in the LHS and began it in late October, finishing it up the first week of December.

I used the color cockpit detail PE set, Eduard canopy masks, and the GBU 10's and 12's come from one of 's weapons sets.

Clansmen Gulf War decals were provided by Carcal, painted with XF 54 Dark Sea Grey, washed with Flory's black wash, and sealed with Model Masters flat clear acrylic. This was fun enough that I'll be doing more aircraft.
