Let’s go with a new project. This time I have returned to, as many modellers say, to the ‘Gentlemen’s scale’. So now I have a 1/72 EA-18G on the bench. Too tiny after the F-15 and the A-10, both at 1/48. So I’ll need my glasses for sure!!
Some pictures of the kit and sprues.
Some details of the panel lines (I repeat, too thin!!)
And the weapons sprues. She has two AGM-88, 2 AIM-120 (C version, I guess) ans 2 AIM-9X. My main idea is mount 2 HARMs and 2 120s.
As I’m waiting to receive the PE and the crew, I took a look at the instructions to see if I can make something meanwhile. And the first surprise is…
I need to remove some parts and fill with putty another ones. I have to apply putty in the cannon because this version has no cannon. A macro shot of the parts to work in
At least, I had time to remove the ‘some kind of antenna’ in the front before the kids wanted to have dinner
That’s all for now. I can’t make too much before the PE arrives, so I’ll go with the putty and painting the interior.
