Hobbyboss 1/48 A6E Tram Intruder


Recommended Posts

First finish of the year. Hobbyboss 1/48 A6E Intruder. This was my first Hobbyboss kit and have been very impressed with it, decent bit of PE included in the kit and metal undercarriage legs to take the weight. Learnt a lot on this one with airbrushing and using weathering products. Was surprised at how dirty these birds were.

Still lots to learn, but very much enjoying the process, which is the main thing I guess :-)

Very nice build and evenly nice paintjob. The flaps arrangement with the red underlying is a beautiful contrast and man has this bird flaps.

Very nice job!  These things were in their final years with the USMC while I spent some time at MCAS El Toro.  I remember watching them banking around the airfield with their flaps fully deployed.   It was very cool!

Thanks for the comments guys, I have never seen one in real life but would loved to have done so. A lot bigger aircraft than I thought it would be.

Cheers

Ok Kev, how did I miss this one......this is stunning, really like the subtle weathering. Spot on I’d say.........only ever done one jet but I do like the lines of the A6. Do recommend the Hobbyboss boxing?

Hi Phil, thank you. Yes I very much recommend the Hobbyboss kit. I enjoyed it so much I am seriously looking at the Trumpeter 1/32 boxing which as far as I can gather is basically the same kit but bigger scale and a full engine to display. Flory models do a great build video of that one. It's quite big in 1/48 so will be massive in 1/32.

Cheers
