Ferenc Sarka Thank You John and Roland. It was a very good practice for airbrushing. It was a kind of investigation about the weaponry, but finaly i made few mistake. But i don't care because "those swept wings".
Ferenc Sarka I started the renovation of this old kit. If anyone has this kit, and still have the remains of the decal sheet, i would ask three decals. I lost them during the last 20 years.

Treehugger Maybe relevant. These days, one can find a lot of aftermarket decals for kits. I haven't checked for your kit, but it wouldn't surprise me if there are such decals out there. Unsure what it might cost, presumably something like £10.
Presumably you can find them listed here on this website if searching for the kit box you built.

Ferenc Sarka Thanks Treehugger Your advice. I found several aftermarket decals already . The challenge would be to make it from my existing decals. Unfortunately, it's 3 pieces less. The KA-6D is on my bucket list, so maybe from that kit I can resolv the missing pieces. Stay at home!

István Szücs I have almost the same kit- EA-6A. I want an A-6A, I would like to build a Vietnam warrior.
Treehugger I've been wondering if airburshing on a thin (super misty thin) layer of gold on the inside of the canopy is preferable (an F-16 project in my case), than airbrushing it on the outside. I wonder if anyone here has tried either way. A way to airbrush on a super thin layer is to fill the airbrush cup with thinner, and then add just a few drops of paint, airbrushed on thinly without it allowing to pile up.

Ferenc Sarka Thanks for the idea Treehugger. I hadn't thought about painting the canopy yet. When I get to work there, I will report the result. Good luck with F-16.

Michael Phillips I actually experimented with this awhile back using a spare P-51 canopy and nail polish. It turned out pretty good actually. Check it out:
Daniel Nice, almost done! Did you encounter any problems with the kit?

Ferenc Sarka Thank You Daniel. There were many problems with the fits, but can be handle more or less. If You interested in this kit, i recomend to you the gripen projects of Thomas Kolb. That was useful for me. Happy New Year!
