1/48 Trumpeter ERA-3B

Recommended Posts

I finally got this finished up and off the shelf of doom. It's been sitting there for well over a year now. This was my test bed for the Steel Beach ERA-3B update, which gives you all the things that Trumpeter missed in the actual kit. I scrounged markings for a lo-vis scheme from VAQ-33. I made intake covers by cutting vinyl pieces to cover the openings, brushing on Mr. Surfacer 500, and then painting them red. It's not my best, but it's done and that's all I really care about.

Looks awesome Darren.  I like all your recent builds of different 'unique' aircraft.

Love it! This totally stand out from the crowd, more so because of the low-viz scheme. You NEVER see folks paint an A-3 in low viz!
