A-7 Corsair II Seamless Intake
A-7 Corsair II Seamless Intake

Cutting Edge has been really stepped up their line of seamless intakes and this release is one of their latest masterpieces.

This set provides a seamless intake duct for the Hasegawa 1/48 A-7D or A-7E kit. I used a similar set in my SLUF project (look here) years ago and it was striking then just how nice that seamless duct looked. The set I had used was cast in tan resin and required painting.

This set has eliminated that step as the duct is cast in white styrene while the compressor face and nosegear well walls are cast in gray resin. This set requires that the intake lip be removed from the fuselage halves which makes integration of the intake easier than mine! Other that that one alteration to the basic Hasegawa kit, this is a drop-in fit.

This is a nice enhancement to any of the Hasegawa 1/48 A-7 releases and will ease your workload if you've been dreading the prospect of filling and painting inside that intake trunk.

My sincere thanks to Meteor Productions for this review sample!
