Re: A-6 SEA Experimental Scheme

A liitle something I`ve been working on for the last couple of months. It`s not particularly accurate in some areas and just built for fun with the old 1/48 scale Italeri kit. http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac81/tc2324/IMG_6146_zpspexiljcc.jpg http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac81/tc2324/IMG_6...
