Avionix 1/48 A-6E Intruder Cockpit Set






Revell 1/48 A-6E Intruder.


Scott Van Aken

One of the more popular kits around is the quite large Revell A-6E. I built one several years ago and it takes up a goodly amount of shelf space. The Intruder also has a rather large, clear canopy so that one can look into the cockpit. The kit cockpit is good, but this resin replacement cockpit kicks the detail level up a notch or two; especially with the ejection seats.

This is a full replacement set with a new tub, seats, control stick, two instrument panels (pick yours), a backlight section as well as the bit that goes inside the rear canopy, a new instrument coaming, forward and aft seat hinges, a HUD, canopy actuator piston and canopy centerline instrument panel.

The resin is very well done without any mold defect that I could see. Only the usual light flash and the need to remove the parts from the resin pour stubs. All in all and excellent choice to add that extra detail to the cockpit of your next Revell Intruder.

Thanks to Squadron/MMD for the review set. You can find this and other products on their website or from your local retailer.
