Hi, 3rd build in this GB

1:32 A4-E of the Blue Angels, The BA's have to be my favorite display group (along side Kiwi Red i hasten to add) they fly with such precision and their shows are just knife edge stuff...some incredibly dangerous maneuvers!! I think..now you blokes will correct me... they were the only "other" display team along with our very own Kiwi Red to do the "Plugged" Loop and Barrel Roll using the A4's buddy pack.

Anyway they hold a special place for me, and i'm actually trying to build all of their aircraft so the A4 will be one in a series (including the Constellation and the Herc-"fat albert")

So... a purpose built kit from Hase :-) including decals!!!



more pics soon... just thought i'd get this up on the site...

If they're all 1:32 they are going to be HUGE!

So.... done some more work!

repainted the gold skyhawk.... and put final coats on the Blue Angels A4




Masking and more masking




Jets this big take a bit of maneuvering when trying to get an all over gloss coat, the nose is weighted and the plastic is sizable so its heavy! to heavy for any of my xacto stands so a large paint brush with blue tack wedged into a book case surfices..
