Hi Everyone! Back once again with my latest completed project, this time the 1/48 Hasegawa A-7E Corsair II in VA-86 Sidewinders markings circa 1978 aboard the USS Nimitz. I have always been attracted to this scheme ever since seeing it in the movie "The Final Countdown". Really love the huge orange diamond on the spine aft of the cockpit. Used the Aires cockpit on this, and the fit is pretty much perfect. Highly recommended for this kit. Also used the Meng Short Range Missiles set for the Sidewinders, Hasegawa Weapons Set A for the mk. 82s, and Hasegawa Weapons Set
Hi ! Here my CAG bird from Vietnam cruise of Golden Dragons. Hasegawa kit, Rhino seamless intake, Aires main wheel wells, Eduard brass, Armory wheels. Weapon load for SAM suppression mission - from Hasegawa's weapon set All colors Gunze Mr.Color "C" series. Thanks to @crackerjazz for inspiration to build A-7! Thanks for looking!
Alright, I finally decided on what to build for this Group Build. After toying with a rather dissapointing Italeri A-26C, and not being sure if a FB-111A would fit into the GB, I have picked the A-7E Corsair. I will be building two at the same time, one will be a US Navy VA-146 one, from 1971 on the USS Constellation, and the other one will be a Hellenic Air Force one, in the SEA scheme. Kits of choice will be the Fujimi ones. I have sprayed some grey on the cockpit bits, photos will be posted once my camera battery has been charged, and when Photobucket gets its act together.
Hello, I'm currently working on the 1/72 Fujimi A-7E, which will be done in VA-146 markings on the USS Constellation in 1971/72. I did some searching earlier on the Waveguide and ECM duct on the side of the fuselage, which shouldn't be added on my build, when I read something about the electronics blister between the main gear bays under the fuselage. Apparently the one that's in the kit wasn't there on early A-7E's? But instead there was a different fairing, which was placed off centre? Does anyone have a bit more info about this, preferably with some images?
