    Kancho has an Intruder for sale, buy that one and repaint

    Pmodel also has an Intruder, same deal

    both are 1:48/1:50 scale

    and neither will break the bank

    I think you can get a detailed one from GPM, it may be discontinued now.

    The GPM version and the EA6B are fairly easy to get, paper model store has the GPM A6.

    I, too, would like to see it for free, as it's one of my favorite aircrafts. Unfortunately i must stick to free, or downloadable, as paper model hobby in Brasil is completely unknown and international postage is not safe at all.

    That would be a VA-35 A-6 ,assignd to CVW 8--most likely from the period it was assigned to the Nimitz....pre 1985, before the grey tactical paint job became the standard. Kancho's A6 is quite reasonbly priced and is a well designed kit. Part with some pocket change and support your designers. BTW--one just like you describe sits out on the flightline behind our museum, awaiting restoration.....panther and all. Think I'll repaint it myself that way....and build another.

    do you know what the coler scheme is for the model? and do you know what the price is. all ive seen is in euros.

    multiply euros by roughly 1.25 to get dollars, or go to www.xe.com

    i just ordered the pmodel intruder and was wondering, does it come with cockpit intrieor? and it is printed right?

    no cockpit, only 1:48 scale

    and you will have to do the printing

    I have the GPM models (A-6 and EA-6)and was a bit dissappointed--the canopy is not right--I doesn't bulge out like the real dea, and the intakes are WRONG. Might not be noticeable to most--but I've spent too much time around them, and know only too well how they should look.

    Both models are in the1985 tactical paint scheme--USS Forrestal. VAQ-133 and Maybe VA -43--can't tell for sure.

    There's another model out there--of the
    VA-35 plane originally noted, that appears to be in the earlier gray /white paint scheme.


    Shape looks better, too.

    I'm gonna say the Kancho one looks better than the PModel.
