Announced several months back, Century Wings has finally posted photos for their pair of upcoming A-6 Intruder aircraft. Sporting a rather clean exterior instead of a weathered, battle-hardened look, the new dynamic duo are nevertheless important additions to Century Wings fleet of 1:72 scale aircraft, and hopefully harbingers of more things to come.
Both aircraft are pegged for an October fly-in.
Japanese model maker, Century Wings, has announced plans to produce two new 1:72 scale versions of the Grumman A-6 Intruder later this October. One model replicates a US Navy Grumman A-6E Intruder Attack Aircraft that was attached to VA-75 “Sunday Punchers”, then embarked upon the USS Independence.
The second depicts a US Navy Grumman KA-6D Intruder Refueling Aircraft that was attached to VA-145 “Swordsmen”, then embarked upon the USS Saratoga. While the new birds are priced substantially higher than their predecessors of years past, they do augment the steady diet of F-14s this company had been producing for the better part of a year.
