Fujimi 1/72 A-7D Corsair II

Although the kit has recessed panel lines, before I nail the wings on I thought I would jazz it up a bit using a Radu Brinzan 0.75 riveting wheel roughly following the Hobbyboss kit (don’t shoot me) as for all its faults the surface detail is pretty good;

Panel lines were rescribed where necessary after clean up destroyed them, liquid glue being used after scribing to dissolve the swarf.

For the next Fujimi A-7 build I’ll be more careful about fitting the lower front fuselage assembly as I had a difficult join to deal with.

Thinking about it now I should have glued the sides seperately to the main fuselage rather than together and deal with the gap underneath and inside the air intake rather than on the sides.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 48 years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
