Hey stik, 

HB does include the parts for the fairing, but my A-7 is an early A-7 prior to its deployment.

I hope that Hobbyboss included the fairing for the tail RHAW gear. It goes right on top of the rudder on all A-7’s before they were deployed to Vietnam

Nice job on the rudder mods. A practical solution to a given situation, very nicely done. And canting the rudder to one side deflects the gap issues. Shouldn't be noticed at all. Anxious to see some paint on it.

Hey junkie, if you look closely, you can see some tans and blues in with the light greys on the bottom. On the top, it's mostly greys with some dark tan in there too. 

So, FSM, I was looking at photos of A-7s to get an idea of how to tackle the color scheme I want to do. The more I looked at the pictures and compared them to the kit, the more something looked...off. Then it hit me. The rudder. I don't know all the differences between all the versions. I also read that this HB kit has its share of issues. I don't know if this is a difference in versions, difference in NAVAIR vs. USAF Corsairs, or a HB screw-up, but the rudder on my kit versus the rudder on my reference picture was different. 

This is how HB molded their rudder. It goes up beyond the "kink" on the trailing edge of the tail all the way to the fin cap.

The Corsair I'm building has its rudder only extend to the kink, not all the way up to the fin cap.

So, I could've painted it to match the reference, but I don't think it would've looked right. So, I took a deep breath and chopped off the tip of the kit's part that I had marked with an X.

Then I glued the tip I had snipped back onto the fin.

After some filling, sanding, and reshaping, things look pretty good under primer.

I lost a minor row of rivets in the process, but I can live with that.

Here's what it looks like with the rudder installed.

The only bummer is the size of the gap at the top of the rudder now. Eh. I can live with that too. As it turns out, the bottom of the rudder had a big gap out of the box. I figure I'll just build the thing with its rudder offset a bit. That way the gaps won't look as bad. 

Anyway, I think the Corsair's ready for paint. Hopefully my next progress shots will show it with some color!

Thanks for lookin'!'

Cheers,

-O

Hey gang,

Got a little progress to show. First, the A-7 is closed up and primed. Sorry for the terrible photo, but I shot it under my desk lamp against my dark desk. Still, you get the idea.

The wings are just dry-fitted for the photo. Things look pretty good, but there are a few small spots I need to clean up before I start with its paint.

Speaking of paint, I got the A-4 sorted out. I fixed the boo-boo I made with the stabilizers and got the two primary colors sprayed.

I also figured out how I'm going to fix the issue with the slat's strut. I looked high and low for that little @#$%& piece but never found it. So, I had to come up with an alternate plan.

Luckily, I found some small square stock that just happened to be the perfect width. Then, after carefully carving out the plastic that was molded into the struts slot, I tested the fit of the stock.

Once it's shaped, trimmed and cleaned up, I think it'll look the part. Especially under some paint and (mostly) hidden by the slat. 

Alright, so that's where I'm at. I think the A-4 is roundin' the corner for home, and the A-7's about to get to the fun part. Stay tuned and I'll post more as I get along.

Cheers!

-O

 

Good call on the slat repair, it will be like new. The marbling technique yields the best and most realistic blotchy finish IMO breaking up the monotone colors.  I sometimes throw in tan, browns and greens to get different under the top coat. Both the A7 and A4 are looking really good.

Nice progress on those O. The paint work on your A-4 looks excellent. Nice work on coming up with a solution for the lost slat strut. I bet the lost broken part will turn up after the project is completed. And the A-7 is coming along quickly.

Omar. Both planes are looking real good.I agree w/Stik,attach broken support on slat.

John. the F4 is very neat and clean must be a NAVY F4 lol..

ok sorry to break up this NAVY build w/ some USAF. sorry for yellow pic.

I used vallejo clear varnish works pretty good but super tacky. I used the kit decals and they needed much finessing to sit well.

If you still have the slat strut, attach it to the slat once you have them in place. You Can adjust the fit to hide and gaps more easily there.

Hey all, made a little progress on both kits that I thought I'd share. Nothing major on the A-7, but got some paint on the A-4.

First, the A-7. I got the fuselage closed up, but I paid extra close attention to the area under the nose. The intake assembly has a tab that makes up the lower side of the nose. Fit was fiddly here, so I needed to make sure thatI didn't end up with a horrible step or gap. So, I CAed some toothpicks in place to help hold the intake assembly in place. It worked out really well.

So, instead of an ugly step or gap at the front, I ended up with two small gaps on the sides.

I attacked these by squeezing in a couple of sheet styrene wedges. Once the liquid glue dries, I'll trim and sand to shape.

So the A-7 is sitting aside, drying, for now. I'll check the seams tomorrow. Hopefully I can start on paint by the weekend.

In regards to the Skyhawk, I got some paint sprayed but suffered two minor setbacks. First, I started with "marbling" the primer with two different greys.

Then I got the primary color sprayed. It looks at lot more "blotchy" in real life. I think I'll go back and "distress" the paint a bit more with some random splotches later.

But, um...does anyone notice anything weird in this picture?

Maybe this will help...

Yeah. That's not going to work.

The biggest bummer though, is this:

I didn't realize I had snapped it off until I was prepping the pictures to post. Looking back at the pictures, it's obvious I broke it before today's painting session. I'll have to figure out what I'm going to do about it. Anyone have any suggestions?

Anyway, thanks for looking. If you have any ideas about how to fix my snapped piece, let me know.

Thanks!

Omar...What load out did you have planned for your A-4? 

 

 

 

Hey stik, I wanted to build one of two loads. Either, napalm on stations 1 and 5, 2 MERs on stations 2 and 4 with 5 Mk. 82 Snakeyes on each, and a fuel tank on the centerline. Like this:

https://skyhawk.org/sites/default/files/images-buno-151022-151201/151124.jpg (Sorry for the link; copyright)

Or, a single Snakeye on stations 1 and 5, 2 MERs on stations 2 and 4 with 5 Mk. 82 Snakeyes on each, and a fuel tank on the centerline. Like this:

But...I learned that those are NOT Mk. 82s. They're Mk. 81s. I don't have Mk. 81 Snakeyes in 1/48. I looked into aftermarket options and learned that Eduard makes sets of 6, but the cost of both sets to arm up my Skyhawk would cost more than the kit itself!

At this point, I may go with napalm on stations 1 and 5, and 3 Mk. 82 Snakeyes hung from TERs on stations 2 and 4, and the tank.

 

If you happen to have the Revellogram A-6 in your stash, the Snakeyes that it comes with are undersize, and will work as Mk.81s. Their AV-8A & AV-8B Harriers have the same issue with their Snakeyes. 

I have a similar loadout planned for a sidelined A-4 build of my own.

 

Goldhammer, I’ll bet you had some interesting times and tales from your tour there.

Omar, that cockpit looks great! The seat is a big improvement over the kit part. And that compressor face in the intake... super!!! What load out did you have planned for your A-4? Those things carried so many different load outs during the course of the war.

John, thanks for the info on the CO2 tank for your airbrush. Im sure it beats a noisy compressor almost any day of the week... exception being the day you cant get it refilled. At least you have this compressor as a fallback now.

 

Goldhammer, if you’re gonna break down the full line of Phantoms used in Vietnam, it would be - USN/USMC: F-4B, F-4G, F-4J, RF-4B; USAF: F-4C, F-4D, F-4E, RF-4C, EF-4C (not an official designation, but a distinct separate version).

Hey stik, great work on your Corsair. I'm a sucker for planes with shark mouths!

My Skyhawk sits in the same state. Its undersides are painted white, but I haven't done anything beyond that. Today, I focused on my A-7A. I don't know what markings I'm going to use yet. I have Superscale's VA-153 Blue Tail Flies, but I might build my airframe in some markings that weren't seen in theater.

Anyway, today I spent time cleaning up the closed avionics panels and IFR assembly.

Fit's not too bad. I'm sure after some primer and paint things will look OK.

Besides the panels, I figured out what to do with the intake trunk. I poured some latex paint into the assembly last night and let it set up. It didn't completely cover and there's some translucence, but I'll spray some white down into the trunk when I paint the underside.

For the rear of the trunk, I took a random compressor face I had in my spares box and shaped to fit inside the trunk. Then I glued it to a piece of roughly shaped styrene sheet.

Once painted and installed, it looks better than the molded blank rear "wall."

Then I moved my attention to the Corsair's office. The kit's seat fits between two "rails" in the cockpit.

The problem I ran into was that I decided to use a resin seat that's too wide to fit between the rails. So, I figured I had to thin the rails and seat to make things fit. One rail had some sort of bottle molded to its top.

To avoid sanding a flat spot on bottle when sanding to thin the rail(s), I cut off the bottle...temporarily.

After I thinned the rails, I also took some off of the seat's sides that would be hidden by the rails.

After that, things fit pretty well.

Once satisfied with the fit, I glued the bottle back onto the top of the rail and finished assembly of the cockpit. Here's everything ready for installation.

Before I can close up the fuselage, I need to build up the wheel wells. That's next...

That's it for now. Hopefully my next post will have some progress on both the Skyhawk and Corsair to share. 

Again, feel free to comment, quesiton, or criticize. Drop your two cents into the bucket.

Thanks for lookin'!

While I can appreciate the helos that were in theatre, John set up the GB for fixed wing only.  Granted the fling wings contributed as much and in places, more.

Our involvement would have been impossible without them.

While the F-4's weren't broken out pretty sure that all versions would be included. C, D, E, J, and the RF B and C

Omar, your A-7 is gonna be a beauty! What squadron markings will you be using?

 

Well, today’s decal work took far longer than estimated. Speed bumps were encountered. 

 

First up, I added the basics: National insignia, stencils, etc. The stars and NAVY went on quick and easy enough. But then the stencils started to break apart. So I did a time out on application to give all stencils a quick coat of Micro Scale Liquid Decal film, then set them aside to dry. Then I went to check on the Fowler sheet. Those were a big unknown to me. So I cut out a small decal that I would not be using and gave it a test... it shattered. So all decals from that sheet that I would be using were coated with the Liquid Decal Film as well. Then it was time for lunch. After lunch I resumed adding the stencils, and this time all went well. 

 

 

I gave them an hour or so to dry, then went back to add the squadron markings and modex. The Fowler decals must have been quite old as they took quite some time to come loose from the backing sheet and then when they did the glue had a yellow gray cloudy film... it took awhile to clear up all that mess. So later than estimated, l finished adding the squadron & modex decals.

 

 

One final detail to share here... I am modifying the aircraft’s Bureau Number from the sheet. The VA-93 markings are for an A-7A, that VA-93 flew after they completed their time on the line in Vietnam during the Linebacker campaigns. In 1973, VA-93 traded in their A-7Bs for A-7As. So I used one of the A-7B Bu. No’s from the Fowler sheet as a starting point for my aircraft’s Bu.No.. I’ll explain the rest later when this build is completed.

 

 

All I can say is that the shark mouth is gonna need lots of solvent to properly settle down and conform to the contours.

Their F-8 made Hallion's Third Generation, "early sonic". That put it on a par with the Mig-19 among a couple of others like the F-100.

The F-100 and F-8 used the same engine, the J-57. But the F-8 design achieved more performance from the same powerplant. And the F-8 did come along a bit later timewise. Not to knock the Hun in any way, but Vought really knocked it out of the park at that time with their design. 

 

GMorrison

Stik and I have debated this, but the Mig 19 as an early multi-engine owned the sky over Vietnam briefly IMO until the F-4 came into theater. 

Actually the F-4 was in theater well before the Viets had Mig-19s. Both the Air Force and Navy had F-4s in theater in 1965, and each service’s first “official” Mig kills were credited to F-4s. Mig 19s did not appear with the VPAF until the early 70s and made their presence known during the opening days of Linebacker.

 

GMorrison

Interesting peanut gallery; the F-104 and F-105 were not effective fighters over Viet Nam.

The F-104 is debatable. Its’ only air combat in theater was against Chinese Migs when one got lost and ended up over Hainan island. The Viets never tried to challenge the 104 Air to Air. 

The F-105 was designed as a strike aircraft, and not an air to air fighter. Although it does have the ability to engage in air to air with an internal gun (unlike the F-4 at that time) and could carry Sidewinders for self defense. In Air to Air Combat, the F-105 gave as good as it got, killing as many Migs as were shot down by Migs themselves. The vast majority of F-105s lost in combat fell to AAA and SAMs.

The F-102 on the other hand (also powered by the J-57)... did engage in air to air with Viet Migs and ended up on the wrong side of the kill ratio.

How big of a tank do you use? How many projects will that last for on average? Where do you get it refilled, and for how much? I’ve always been curious about the CO2 tank method.

It's a 10lb tank, I've done 15-20 projects... titanic ate a lot of co2 and cleaning uses a lot as well.   I'd say 18mos or so time wise.   I used to get it filled at Parsons airgas but have since found a welding supply shop up here in my little town.  I think it coat $20 or so.  Tank needs to be hydro tested every 5 years.

Thanks,

John

Loads of great work gang. I'm impressed with the builds that are being...um...built. I really  enjoy seeing the A-37s and A-7s. So much so that I'm inspired to (try to) build an A-7 for this build. I'm still working on my Skyhawk, but I'm going to build a Corsair alongside it. I was going to restore a SR-71 for this build, but it's proving to be more challenging than building a kit from the start! I'll keep tinkering with it and see if I can get it done by the deadline.

My A-4 hit a bit of a snag when I learned that the loadout I had originally had planned for my kit was not realistic. So, I'm looking into Plan B. Still, I'll keep plugging away on the airframe in the meantime. Anyway, here's where I stand with my Skyhawk:

 

It's been primed and the underside painting has started. Sorry, I don't have a picture of the painting yet. I'll try to get a photo of the white before I mask it off and start on the grey. 

So, like I said, I'm going to try my hand at a Corsair II. I had the Hobby Boss A-7A boxing in my stash, so, I pulled it out and opened it up. 

Looking at the options, I decided to close up the avionics bays that could be posed open. With some careful trimming and sanding, the fit wasn't too bad.

It looks like this boxing could also be built up as a non-Navy version, so I had to add the IFR. One thing Hobby Boss has you do is open up a couple of holes in the fuselage to accept the assembly. The odd thing is the holes are to be opened before the fuselage halves are glued together, but the assembly is supposed to be added after they go together. That didn't make sense to me. So, I added the IFR before I went too far. 

A little filler and things should be fine. I'm going to use some CA glue from the inside, then use some thin putty from the outside to smooth things out.

I also opened up the back of the intake. I don't know why I did that since I really don't have a plan of how to fill the (new) opening. I just decided I didn't wan't a boring blank ending to the intake trunk. I'll figure something out.

While all that stuff dries, I'm moving my focus to the cockpit. Before I do anything else, I'm going to attack the resing ESCAPAC seat I found floating around in my junk box. I've added a pull handle made from thin wire.

That's all for today. I'll post more progress on both projects as it comes along. Feel free to share your comments, questions, or criticisms.

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay clean! Happy modeling!
