For a kit designed in 1960 with functional bombs, landing gear, etc., this kit has some really good potential for detailing.

As, for some reason, I seem to be on a bit of a naval aircraft kick, I'm going to start in on this project with my own typical flair for detailing with scratch built greeblies.

I hope you all enjoy this project as I do my usual tumble down the rabbit hole to an eventual end... somewhere... eventually.

I started with the pit. Not much going on here, but I'll fix that.

I started scribing, thinning, and opening the engine ports. They don't require too much work to get these results. Nicely done, for such an old kit.

I've got the cowl carved out for better definition and I've slotted the cowl flaps and thinned them out on the port side only, so far. The exhaust ports have also been opened up and given the proper shape.

The prop hub and propeller are meant to be attached to the front cowl/engine before being glued on, but that just won't do. Some bits of styrene now hold it in place and some bits of stretched sprue on the other side (see last picture) act as guides to keep the propeller in true alignment.

The panel that covers the two .30's is molded solid, of course. I drilled pilot holes and then carved the panel shapes out. I know that later this will make a huge difference in detail level when looking at a couple MG barrels instead of some indistinct lumps painted black lol.

You seem to have a bit of a thing for these old kits!  Can we see a shot of the box art too, please?  Great start, by the way, looking forward to following this one.

I am pretty certain that I built this model as a kid? The landing gear went up and down and there was a bomb on a hinged rig that could swing down and release the bomb.
Is that similar features for this kit?

Always nice to see the boxart in a build thread, then we can look for the same kit ourselves if we fancy having a go after watching the builders fun!  [thumb][thumb]

Here is the start of the new office. I've added knobs and levers.

[IMG_20191005_022638]

[IMG_20191005_022656]

Of course this is just the start. I've got to let this glue cure overnight before I can shape these and add handles.

I've decided to turn this into an A-24B Banshee. I basically have to remove the tail hook and change the tail wheel. Then it's O.D. over grey and I have enough spare decals to fake it.

Now I've got a clear goal in mind and this should be more entertaining. ๐Ÿ˜†
