Excellent. Have had an RA-5C in the stash for fifteen years and want to build it!

Hi,

 

That's unexpected news, but very good news for me. To me, it is a very interesting aircraft and there seems to have been very little going on for the Vigilante since the Trumpeter kits (1/72 and 1/48) and the couple of sheets that came out for it.

This being Caracal, there might even be a 1/72 sheet in the future.

 

The thread title says "A-5" and not "RA-5C". I know of no available mainstream 1/48 A-5 kit.

Do you know something we don't, Kursad?:woot.gif:

 

Cheers, Stefan.

How about some early and late Test A-5/RA-5C Vigilantes? From Kou-Fan Dec 1964. I cannot read the Japanese captions, butI believe that photo 1, 3,4 are RA-5B/C and photo #2 is A-5A.

OK, I get it - no need to be too pedantic about what is just a tentative product name. 🙂 Obviously it is going to be a RA-5C sheet. Designed for the Trumpeter 1/48, and eventually the Revell 1/72 kits.

It was not a negative sentiment directed at you or your products. Its a genuine shame we don't have a 48th scale A-5A, apart from the very OOP cutting edge conversion kit. I would purchase an A-5A sheet regardless, i'm sure something will be along eventually.

After trying to score and fail to get some OOP decals I'm excited about this, thanks!

There were substantial differences between early and late production Vigilantes. Is the decal sheet going to focus on one or the other or include both?
