1/48 Monogram EA-6B Prowler VAQ-141 Shadowhawks

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I've made some progress, thanks to a nice End of Year break.

I've done the decals on the left side now too, masked the two yellow canopies (what a TERRIBLE fit they have!!!), installed the refueling probe and put her on her feet, and finally gloss airbrushed the whole kit to seal the decals.

Next step is the weathering and the oil stains.

 

Enjoy!

Hi all,

everything going quick right now. I did some wash on the wish and the stepping areas, not too much.

all decals are on, all (!) antennas are on, including the two fuel tanks.

and she’s massive!

Added some antennas on each side of the wing, where the airbrakes are: 3 at each side.

done with melting and stretching sprue, simple and effective method.

these antennas are not on the Monogram kit.

Nice work! Is that a Whidbey Island bird? I go by the 2- & 4-seater gate guards all the time- cheers!

Back in the EA-6 days yes. They have now transferred to MCAS Iwakuni.
