HobbyBoss 1/48 A-1A Ground Attack fighter- Brazilian Air Force

Recommended Posts

Hello,

This is the HobbyBoss 1/48 AMX (A1-1 in the Brazilian Air Force). It is a subsonic attack aircraft, powered by a single non-afterburning turbofan produced by the Italian-Brazilian consortium AMX International, with Embraer as the brazilian participant company.

Today, this version is being replaced by the “M” variant, which has an improved avionics/software package. Initial aircraft were delivered in the late eighties.

This particular kit depicts an aircraft flown from Santa Maria AFB, (1/10 Aviation Group) in the tactical reconnaissance missions, plus the regular ground attack role.

The weathering is minimum, since this machines are usually kept clean. 

The kit box contains some PE for the interior and rubber tires. No issues or putty was needed, except a little at the wings roots.

Nice work George!  :thumbsup:

 

The flaps and slats in down position came as an option in the kit or were modified?

 

Regards,

Thank you! Flaps and slats came in down position. You would have to perform some surgery to change these....

That first photo looked so real to me that I had to do a double take! Well done! 👍
