F-toys 1/144 - A-7E Corsair II - Wip 1

F-toys 1/144 - A-7E Corsair II - Wip1
The single seater to go along with the Ta-7C is a very nice little gasphon from F-toys, great detail!

Quite easy this compared to the resin kit, taken apart but back together, then glued, seams filled and the usually sanding. No cockpit to speak off, managed to bash one with bits from the spare box and kept the little f-toys pilot.

All the f-toys aircraft come with very nice little stands so i reckon i will make this one in flight, fully armed.
Is all primed and ready for paint but will wait till the 2 seater is ready for painting.

man.. i'm really impress how you detail all the tiny stuff.. can you show us more how you paint the cockpit?

Do you take off paint?

I took off paint of Mirage 2000C by F-toys.
At that time,I use isopropanol.

Iisopropanol was in common use removing water from gas tank of cars.
If you don't know,I encourage you to research about that.

Seems like and interesting mod to enhance the cockpit area. Looking forward to the final product. I think your kit process is fast.

Already painted the cockpit but can in the future try and take a pic, very small and quite difficult for me to get a good focus.

Just bought some Isopropyl 99.9% pure, going to try it out over the weekend on some some f-toys.

I think compared to some im slow but depend on how interesting i find the subject to model, more interested the faster i go.
