Fujimi 1/72 McDonnell Douglas A-1H Skyraider

Postby SigEp Ziggy » Fri Feb 14, 2020 6:58 am

I found this model in a pawn shop for $10

Image

The decals are too old, so I will have to find some after market ones.

Image

I did get a resin cockpit from Aries and a photo etch set from Eduard.

Image

I have the Hasegawa Skyraider, so I decided to use the resin cockpit on it and steal the Hasegawa kit cockpit and use it in place of the Fujimi poor excuse of a cockpit. I will use the Eduard set to help as well.

Image

Wish me luck!

:hmm:

It’s always fun to fit the cockpit from one manufacturer into the airframe of another company’s kit. Good luck!

This version of the Skyraider is one of my favorites. It is a beast. Not too fond of the side-by-side version.
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

I have been working on the much need detail to the wheel wells on the Skyraider.

The Fujimi kit has no detail.

The Hasagawa Skyraider looks like this/

I found this photo on-line.

I'm not finished but this is what I came up with so far.
