Collect Aire A-12 Avenger

I built this 1/48 scale resin /metal model last year for a lawyer who was involved with the long term litigation resulting from the actual canceled program.


Here are some more pictures:

Whoa! It ain't everyday you see one of these built up!

Pretty nice job, especially if it's like most Collect-aire kits. ie; Bow-wow! They are not easy to build into a nice display piece. I really like the close-up of the cockpit.

Thanks....I had my hands full building this kit. But the overall sentiment was still a positive one. I sent some pictures to the Collect Aire website and the webmaster actually used some for the A-12 ! Smile [:)]

Very nice boybuddho. The question is "Will ya build another"??? The display stand/name plate add a nice touch.
