Zoukei-Mura 1/32 A-1J Skyraider USAF

By Jan Gabauer

This was my summer project originally planned for 2 months, but it took me more than 4 months to finish it.

You can find my in-progress thread in the forums.



Overall nice build with no major fit issues.

Painted with Mr. Paint and GSI C colors. Weathered with AMMO stuff (different panel line wash, some filters, streaking grime, fresh engine oil, black and airfield dust pigments).

Seatbelts made from HGW material, antenna from EZ line.

I have decided to finish it as airframe number 142058 (1972 configuration), because I just wanted to depict A-1J, with which Mr. Hukee flew at least once.

I´m quite happy with results although I made several errors, the most visible are insignias which should not be at this particular airframe.

Definitely I like USAF Spads with SEA camouflage, my favourite looks of A-1.
