Completed 1/32 A/S32A-31A aircraft towing tractor

Recommended Posts

Here's a pic of my recently completed 1/32 A/S32A-31A aircraft towing tractor from Special Ops Models. (Kit# MNFDT-3201)

I had one shot left in the camera, and a break in the rain today when the sun was out for a brief moment.

Everything went together flawlessly.

I sprayed it with Krylon White Primer.

Future was applied as a gloss base for the decals.

Next, a wash with diluted black oil paint and dry brushed with light gray enamel.

Finally, I topped it off with Testors Dullcote.

Chipped paint was done by brush with silver and black enamel paints.

The green shirt dude is an altered figure from an Academy F/A-18 kit.

Hey Austin,

Yeah, the top surface molded with a texture on it.

Very nice touch by Andy.

You're correct, I am an old school SLR film dude for now.

I'm still looking at DSLR's and saving my soda cans.

(Kid in collage, you know how that goes I'm sure)

You got some talent in painting figures, my friend. One day I am gonna HAVE to try to get some paint on my Academy ones from the -18 kit! I do love the skittles on the decks....

Tractor came out great as well. Great job all around!

Thanks fellas'

Glad y'all like it.

Jim, I might paint my figures, but I'm no figure painter.

I pretty much just throw on some color, wash and highlight.

Andy, I've got the jet. I just have to get it (F-14D Tamiya conversion) finished.

Got to make some chocks, tow bar, and get some of those chains and ratchets from Pitz Models.

Thanks again,
