The model was built straight out of the box with the exception of the seat harness which I made using masking tape.  The fit of the parts were very good with nice detail and I had no major problems with construction.  Model Master and Testors enamels were used for the painting and I added a light oil wash in the wheel well areas and panel lines. 


The model represents an A-7A Corsair II of VA-86 aboard the USS Saratoga.
Happy Modeling!
