1/48 Tamiya A-1H Skyraider

by Tom "Timi" Modłasiak



This A-1H Skyraider is my first aircraft model presented on ARC.  It is made from Tamiya's A-1H 1/48 scale kit with the Eduard photo etched set.  The Skyraider is one of the most pleasant Tamiya kits and it didn't cause me any serious difficulties.  It was painted with Gunze H series paints with it's formidable thinner and Model Master Acrylic coats. Fading and shading was also made with Gunze paints. Artists oils were used for weathering and wash. Smoke effects were made using airbrush and artistic pigments. 
Decals from the box are representing A-1H from the carrier USS Intrepid operating during Vietnam war.      
I hope you will like it :)
