A-6E Monogram 1/48


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, this is a Monogram A-6E with a Wolfpack cockpit, Brassin Mk-20s, Fightertown decals and many photoetched parts coming from various sets (Mainly Eduard and Verlinden)...

The fire truck is from the Verlinden range...

That is great paintjob, and nice scribing too - not an easy work there.

Can you explain how did you chip that red paint on the vehicle? It looks amazing!

Wow, that looks really nice! I have 6 sets of the Brassin MK-20........one day I'll find time to actually use them. You did an excellent job getting them mounted properly.

The red paint on the vehicle was chipped with the hairspray technique: after painting white the whole vehicle, I masked the stripes with Tamiya tape and sprayed some hairspray where the red paint would go. I then I airbrushed the red paint, took away the mask and after a few minutes I started to scratch away the red paint, using a stiff brush dipped in warm water...

Cheers!

Wow VERY nice :thumbsup: ! I love the weathering and tasteful display. What tool did you use to rescribe the panel lines? They look awesome.

:cheers:

Really cool job man. I especially like how you highlighted around caps and small panels, kinda gives it a look of more depth than just straight flat across.

What did you think of the Wolfpack cockpit?

Panel lines were rescribed using this old blade, drawn backward as shown by the arrow:

When I have to rescribe small circular or elliptical panels I change the triangular blade with a needle.

What did you think of the Wolfpack cockpit?

Even though on the Wolfpack set you can read "For Revell/Kinetic 1/48", the cockpit doesn't fit too well to the Revell kit; I had to do a lot of adjustment, especially around the rear part of the cockpit. As you can see in the following picture, most of the detail I lost was regained with photoetched parts coming from an Eduard fret. Since the cockpit is fairly wide, I've been able to build the entire model before painting it...

Verlinden cockpit fits a bit better the Revell kit, but the Wolfpack detail is much better...

Wow, awesome work. Really like the weathering and scribing......you definitely took your time and it shows. Out of curiosity, did you use the kit windscreen? It's one of the worst fitting parts on these kits. The fit seems really good in the pic you posted. Anyway.....GREAT JOB!

Yes, I used the kit windscreen and it fit quite well to the fuselage; I just had to insert a piece of plasticard where the air refuelling probe was supposed to touch the windscreen because, as you can see in the picture, it left a hole...

Cheers!
