Douglas A-20 Havoc (Boston)

Revell (MPM) 1/72 P-70 Nighthawk

The 481st Night Fighter Operational Training Group (481 NFOTG) was the primary night fighter Operational/Replacement Training Unit (OTU/RTU) of the Army Air Forces during World War II. Its mission was to train either new graduates of [...]

AMT Havoc In Flight

This is the AMT A-20G Havoc in 1/48th scale that I completed a couple of months ago. I have a build thread in the Pacific Theater group with details of the build so I will limit the article here and photos to just enough to point you to [...]

Revell's 1/72 A-20C Havoc/Boston III.

This is an old build that I made back around 1988. I remember having a great time building this kit. I recently gave this a good clean and repaired a missing aerial and loose main wheels. Not too bad for a model made 35 years ago. Back in [...]

Matchbox 1/72 Douglas A-20G Havoc (Green Hornet)

Another build from the Matchbox Group Build to celebrate Matchbox's 50th Anniversary to when they first released plastic model kits. This may not be the best A-20 out there but I feel for its time, Matchbox did a nice job on providing the [...]

AMT 1/48 P-70 Night Fighter

In October 1940, upon USAAC’s feeling a need for long-range fighters more than attack bombers, a decision was taken to convert sixty of the production run of A-20s to night fighter status, all delivered by September 1942. The so called [...]

Classic Kit: Revell 1/72 A-20 No. H-115-130

Here's an older build of the classic Revell 1/72 A-20 which was initially released in 1967. The kit is a nice simple model very similar to the Ju-88A which came out at about the same time. That box art really excited me and I still think [...]

Desert Air War Group Build: 1/48 Italeri (AMT) A-20B Havoc, 47th Bomb Group

The Airplane: The Army Air Corps issued a new specification for an attack aircraft in 1937. To meet this requirement, Douglas, with a design team headed by Ed Heinemann, developed the Model 7B, powered by two 1,100 hp Pratt & Whitney [...]

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, [...]

Douglas A-20G Havoc - AMT 1/48

This build was inspired by some recent A-20G builds from our friends here at iModeler, as well as the fact that I was able to pickup this kit secondhand at my local hobby shop. The kit was the "Wings Aviation Collection" boxing, [...]

D-Day flashback

Several years ago, there was a D-Day group build here on iModeler. My submission was an AMT 1/47 A-20G, representing an airplane assigned to the 646th Bomb Squadron, 410th Bomb Group, 9th Air Force. I felt it was appropriate to post this [...]
