Douglas A-20A

Douglas A-20A Boston

 


AMT/ERTL's 1/48 scale A-20G Havoc is available online from Squadron.com

 

Description

 

The Model

This is the 1/48 scale A-20B/C Boston from AMT/Ertl in 1/48th scale converted to "A" version. The conversion was based on pictures in the Squadron "In Action" series although, to tell the truth, the only changes were new exhaust pipes and an engine addedfrom Accurate Miniatures' Avenger.

I also used Eduard Photo-Etched parts from set no. 48151.

 

 

The depiction of the corrugated metal surface requires plenty of patience. It was only achieved after many  time-consuming experiments. In my opinion, this  is the most complicated task of any modeling finish.

 

Paints

MM metalizer Aluminium, Steel and Magnesium.

 

 

Accessories

Verlinden figures and Bandai Jeep

 

 

Camera

Canon PowerShot S20
