Greece Independence Day



Here are some pictures of my latest construction, a TA-7C Corsair, in Hellenic Air Force duty. It’s a kit from Hobby Boss, in 1/48 scale.

I included the Aires detail set for the cockpit. The kit ejection SJU-11/A & SJU-12/A  seats were replaced with two seats from an Aires detail set.  I also used the Eduard Detail Set for A-7E and Aires Detail Set for Wheel Bay. 

I scratch-built the tail section and the brake chute housing, the air starter receptacle panel, the gun gas purge door and the pilots steps ladder in open position left rear of the fuselage, the battery inspection panel rear right of the fuselage and below a strike camera K18B and a central speed break. 

Also I corrected the air intake shame from the model.

The model is painted in “SEA” camo (FS 34102), (FS 34079), (FS 30219) and (FS 36622), using colors provided by the ModelMaster and it finished with extensive weathering. Decal sets are from Icarus Decals, representing a TA-7C (336 squadron) in Hellenic Air Force duty.

I hope you enjoy my model. Happy modeling!
