The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

ICM A-26B completed


Recommended Posts

All done with this one. Not a bad kit but it does have some inaccuracies. I replaced the tires with resin True Details tires, the props I replaced with some Monogram props, the complete cockpit was replaced with a Monogram cockpit with added Eduard PE details. I also replaced the seat with one from my stash. I decided to dress it up some with the yellow pad and the US Army Air Forces decal which I re-scaled from a 1/32 Barracudacal. I replaced all the guns. Some are brass and some are hollow plastic rod to represent the blast tubes on these a/c. Exterior paint is all Alclad except for the anti glare areas which are MM OD and the exhaust stains which are a couple of different shades of MM. Decals are from the kit except for the national insignias which are Aeromaster. The build DID have it's moments but now it's all done and ready for your perusal. I hope y'all like it! :)
