VA-86 "Sidewinders" USS Nimitz

Here are some pictures of my Italeri ex Esci A-7E in 1/72 scale. I built it basically out of box.

I added only seat belts, cables on gear, notes on gear port, cut of flaps. The kit in general it was simple and fun.

The paints used is 129 (FS 36440) with abundant wash of oil paints. 

For the panel lines I used the same colour with a little of dark grey with a diluition about the 400 - 500 % sprayed with airbrush.
 
Happy modelling.
