Trumpeter 1/48 A3D Skywarrior rescued from the shelf of Doom!


Recommended Posts

Finally, after many years, this is finished. I can say that there were not wo pieces in the entire build that fit together easily. And Trumpeter found ways to take one part and make four out of it. I will say it is a huge plane and I do love Navy schemes. Finished with Squadrons decals

Very nice and really interesting to see it in the folded version.  Having been around 2 or 3 of these at museums, I have always marveled at their landing on slant deck converted Essex Class carriers.  How big is this model in terms of inches?

That came out nice! Though it sounds like it was a rough road getting to the finish line.

Its a little longer than 18 inches and not quite as wide but would be without the wing folds. It is very large
