1/72 Hobbycraft A-1H Skyraider


Recommended Posts

I dug this out of the "hold" pile seeing as though it is the same gray color, 36440, as the Tomcat. It's the old Hobbycraft A-1H Skyraider which will be done as a Navy plane from the Vietnam era. I did a few fixes to make it look a bit better, I made a canvas cover for the Yankee Ejection Seat out of Kleenex and white glue, and I made some exhaust deflectors that go on the fuselage behind the engine cowl out of clear plastic card. There wasn't much for weapons so I robbed a Hasegawa weapons kit of 12 Mk 81 bombs and will use the kit's 2 500 lb. bombs and center line fuel tank.

Thanks, I had originally wanted a Hasegawa but they are hard to find and expensive, I see that Hobby 2000 is now using Hasegawa molds for 1/72 Skyraiders! Looks like I can now afford to find a decent kit at a decent price!
