Started my $19.95 Revell 1/48 A-7A Corsair ll for a group build on my FB page. Going to model it as flown by the USAF during a successful SAR near Thanh Hoa of a Wild Weasel crew in November 1972.

Almost forgot that modern jets have moveable tail surfaces and it's okay to have a small gap!!

Again after lots of cleaning I've glued the wing halves!!

Attached the wings to the fuselage at the correct angle I hope!!

Seam work sucks, lol!!! Wait is that why I find armor so refreshing to build, lol!!??
Well at least my parts cleaning reduced most of the glaring gaps!

Pretty successful afternoon. Got all the seam work finished including buffing the fuselage and installed and aligned all the weapons racks!
This has been a sweet little build so far.

Had the paint shop prime the A-7A before they left for the weekend and I'll pre-shade it tomorrow!
