A-26K "Counter Invader"
HyperScale is proudly supported by
Here is my 1/48 scale A-26K "Counter Invader". I built this kit
about 4-5 years ago.
I used the Monogram/Revell A-26 as the basis for the conversion.
Apart from rescribing the raised surface detail I used various
aftermarket sets. I used the Paragon Designs conversion as well as
the parts of the HiTech B-26K conversion plus Paragons flaps and
open 8-gun nose.
In my eyes both the Paragon and HiTech Sets are not 100% correct
so I mixed them. I replaced the kit wheels by flattened ones from
Xtracolors were used for the entire model and the decals are from
my spares box. The "Mighty Mouse" writing was hand painted on a
clear decal sheet and then applied to the model because at the time
of building this kit the nice Aeromaster Decal sheet for the "Mighty
Mouse" has not yet been released.
