First Look

If you've been keeping up with recent events, you've seen the nice array of AMS Resin detailed resin cockpits for the Revell/Monogram, Kinetic, and FM/Heller F-84F kits as well as for the FM/Heller RF-84F kits. Well AMS Resin didn't stop there. They've been working on a variety of new subjects, and this set takes care of another pet peeve out there in the modeling world.

A-6 Intruder Corrected Intakes w/FOD Covers

The Revell-Monogram 1/48 A-6 Intruder kit is the best kit of the subject out there in this scale. The one aspect of the kit that isn't quite captured correctly is the shape of the intakes. While another company has corrected this with some nice seamless intakes, AMS Resin took another approach - correct the shape of the intakes, but cover the openings with FOD (Foreign Object Damage) protective covers.

This is a simple conversion to help with the side and head-on profiles of the aircraft.

Recommended for experienced modelers!

My sincere thanks to AMS Resin for this review sample!
