1/72 Italeri SLUFF

Recommended Posts

I have finally settled down in my new house and managed to get a hobby area set up (although baby on the way, so my modeling days are numbered). I thought I would build my A-7D OOB and practice my weathering techniques. Well, I keep seeing awesome scratchbuilds here on ARC, so I have started to mess with this kit.

Some of the modifications so far:

cut out the intake plug - I'm not really sure how I am going to handle this, I don't think I want to try to build an intake insert yet. I might just paint the inside black and hope for the best.

busying up the wheel wells - not accurate, but loosely based on reality



detailed the ejection seat - but I will have to do that again. I painted the seat, futured it, applied smoke, and then model master acrylic flat coat. The flat coat dried up like elmers and completely ruined the seat. I think I will redo the seat entirely.



and after scraping off the flat coat
