BAT21 Already glued the dropping weapons? Finish line in sight?

Daniel Klink No, still searching for original foto material of a A-6 the Turret question u know
Again chosen a version with nearly no original material..
Revell offers both choices without any hint or background information
Ift i have the free choice i would prefer the without B2 alternative
In the meantime...
No need to panic mate

Gary Dahlström Not only is this looking great, it's just such an interesting subject that's being brought back to life from it's brief moment in history.
James C Looks to be coming along nicely and as has already been commented on; that cockpit interior looks awesome inside the closed up fuselage.

Daniel Klink The alternate housing for the rear turret looks so creepy.
And there werent panellines at all on it by Revell...
Do not know the englisch word for it but the rear looks like the thing that pets get ove their heads after a surgery
Daniel Klink Hi Cuajete, i call it a bad compromise by Revell They should have done a whole new tail section or just let this version pass them because if you want to display it correctly the instructions where and how much to saw and cut off is also not correct.
I did some surgery to get a better angle and form out of it but it still does not look like in Revells Paint scheme and plan.
They used pic 15 as sample i believe
I am really somewhat pissed off by this, and the fact that i did not mentioned this earlier.
Alec K What references did you managed to get for this Daniel (I.e. where does the pic 15 come from)? I am having trouble finding drawings, not to mention a riveting plan.

Daniel Klink Piic 15 is from a russian site. https://military.wikireading.ru/14353
And i have to excuse a bit because the shape and no panellines is correct!
But the whole thing should be placed half a centimetre back to the rudder.
But that does not work because of the rudder adjustement on the fuselage halves.
But why they show them wrong in the paint schemes?
A colleagues sent me pics and they show clearly the position and that it is just one piece of metal added
Daniel Klink Glad i could help Alec
So finally my interpreation of that heck thing is done. I can deal with it that way
Hop you like it..

Daniel Klink It is time to think about the paintjob on this..
Because the main wings fits nearly perfect to the fuselage i decided to fix them after painting the fuselage sides.
Good idea or not? What do you think?
Cuajete Daniel, experience is a great asset. I'm sure the result will be a success, whatever decision you make
26. September, 18:55
Daniel Klink Many thanks, David, Gerald, alec, Cuajete and Lukasz for the compliments and encouraging words.
ok the Emily had those big spars that made it easier but the fit to the fuselage was not so perfect as with the greif.
I had to glue them after painting and it worked out well. So Hope and see
