Trumpeter 1/32 A-7D Corsair ll
By Joe Bagster
This one was started as part of the Air War Over Vietnam GB but I didn't finish it in time. Now its finished its finally good to have it done...and another kit removed from the stash!
Having previously built the A-7E I can say IMO that the A-7D kit is the better of the two in terms of mould quality and panel line consistency etc. Not that the A-7E is bad but they are challenging kits that definitely wont fall together. They do look good when finished though and its great to have another in the collection.
Probably not my best build and its not as accurate for the time frame intended but its a SLUF in SEA Camou...in 1/32.
For this build I used the following aftermarket:
- Quickboost - Ejection Seat
- Eduard - Cockpit PE
- Eduard - Avionics Bay PE
- Eduard - Exterior Airframe PE (only used some parts of this one)
- Tamiya - MERs and TERs
- Tamiya - Mk 82s
- Trumpeter - A-4 Drop Tanks (thanks to Daniel - cheers)
- Kit Decals - Myrtle Beach - "Green Demons"
- Gunze - SEA Camo
- Tamiya - General stuff
- Vallejo - Details
- Humbrol - Details
- Future - Gloss coats
- AK Interactive - Matt Coat
- MIG Pigments
