This is the Hobbycraft A-36A
in 1/32 scale. It's a fairly simple kit
lacking in many details and not so accurate in others but currently the
only one available in this scale and though it has a few areas where
fit is not that great it's not all that hard to build and to correct
and add detail to. A note about weathering, the aircraft modeled was
stationed in the desert and took a beating from the sun and sand. The
first photo shows the aircraft being modeled to give you a frame of
The kit's interior needed a little help so I dressed up the radios with
some knobs and placards and added individual instrument decals to the
instrument panel. The seat harness was photo etch and I added some
toggle switch handles to the various black boxes.
A bottom photo was taken
before I did the topside details and weathering.
