Monogram 1/48 A-4F Blue Angels...

Recommended Posts

 

Here is my recently finished 1/48 Monogram A-4F Blue Angels.

 

Here's what I added...

  1.  Resin cockpit and seat.
  2. Steel Beach resin intake covers.
  3. Removed the small ECM "bumps" on the nose ans tail.
  4. Added the para-brake housing from a Hasegawa kit.
  5. Scratch-built the flaps in the lowered position using plastic sheet and an extra "fairing" from a Hasegawa kit.
  6. Quickboost resin refueling probe.
  7. Used the ladder tube from a Hasegawa kit
  8. True Details resin wheels.
  9. Used an old PE set from another Monogram "High Tech" kit.
  10. Decals from a Revell BA boxing.
  11. All silver areas are done with the Molotow Chrome paint marker.
  12. The model is painted with a brush.

The cockpit was an old KMC one. I then used one of Darrens SB seats :thumbsup2:. It has more detail than the KMC one.

Scott,

Pretty amazing finish for brush painting.  Care to share your technique? Did you use the 4mm Molotow paint marker? All in all,  a pretty amazing build.
