OV-10A Bronco Cal Fire build
Posted by keavdog on Saturday, November 2, 2019 2:01 AM

I did a huge conversion on the S2T CalFire and now I'm doing the OV-10A Command bird.

Sticking with the 1/72 scale I  was a little dissapointed that the only decals are for the older livery but, hey - no worries.

So converting the military version to the Cal Fire requires carving off the ordanace capabilities.  Minor modification compared to the S2T.  Anyhow, under construction.

Cutting off the War stuff

Getting the bird togehter

 

 

 

Thanks,

John

Hi,

I'm looking forward to seeing more of this build.  I really enjoy seeing planes and such in less common markings, and firefighting markings look especially interesting.

Keavdog, which OV-10 kit? I was going to do the same build with the Testors 1/48 OV-10 but I sold the kit with the Cal Fire decals. I'd like to do it in 1/72 scale, well, because that the size I have room for.

OK. On the bench:

Way too much to build in one lifetime...

Fotofrank,

The kit is the Academy OV-10. Revell Germany just issued a reboxing.

Yes, this is the academy kit.  Minor fit issues.  The plastic is very soft and easy to sand.  Decals are from Draw.

Thanks,

John

Working through some filling and sanding.  Getting there.  A bit concerned about the multipart canopy...

Thanks,

John
