Wreaking Havoc WIP
Posted by fermis on Saturday, May 26, 2018 7:53 AM

 

I have PE sets for both and a/m markings...

 

 

I dig the NMF...can't say that I've ever seen an A-20 that wasn't green or camo of some sort.

Yeah right, "you dig the NMF", what you dig is the nose art. Wink

Science is the pursiut of knowledge, faith is the pursuit of wisdom.  Peace be with you.

HAHA! I can not lie...that is a factor. I'm 50/50 on it!.

I've built a half dozen or so A-20's...all have been OD or camo. NMF will be a nice change in the collection. I'm still not 100% sold on it though. All my planes are displayed angled, with the left side forward...showing off the nose art. This one is backwards!

I have been thinking of doing a Havoc for some time.  What is a decent kit?

In 48th, there's the old AMT, which I have enjoyed several times. I've done a couple of these MPM kits and have enjoyed them as well. They need a little "help", but I would not call them "bad" at all.

Yeah, a friend has built the AMT A-20 kit and it's pretty nice. Good detail and reasonable decals. I have one in my stash that I think I paid $10 at a model show back in the spring.

OK. On the bench:

Way too much to build in one lifetime...

Just found this. Should give some historical perspective.

There always seems to be a few at the contest vendors...$10/15 is the usual.

I bought a couple, years ago (late 90's) at a Kabee Toy's outlet. They were going for $5...along with several other AMT kits...picked up a handfull of P-40's too!

There was and A-20 Havoc at the Sun-n-Fun Airshow this year.  I snapped one shot of it.  Here it is.

Sorry for the loooong delay. I had a very busy year. With the little time I had, I figured that time would be much better spent on working on these things, rather than taking pics. 

Anyway...got the pair wrapped up last night...

Beautifully done, Fermis!  I like the weathering on the OD bird, and like you said, you don't often see a Havoc finished in NMF, that was a great choice!

Those are really well done. I'm glad you finished them up.

I like the Little Chief a lot. It's quite the subject.

My F-in-L did flight training in Florida in the P-70B. Only aircraft he ever bailed out of.

They both look so nice! Excellent build of a limited run kit.
