Italeri B-66 model in 1/72 scale kit review by Meindert de Vreeze
|Modelling report.... [to page 2 3 ]|
|The B-66 Destroyer was a family member
of the A-3 Skywarrior US Navy aircraft of Douglas.
The Italeri kit is simple but good and really the only kit of this variant. The 1/72 kit has a very good fit but the plastic is a little brittle. Panellines are recessed. (Kit was also released by Testors no.677 with other decals)
The following changes to get some more details into this model were made:
To do some more detailing also one of the engine nacelle main doors was opened to reveal an engine; the engine is made scratch with some rods and sprue.
Also, the crew access ladder was opened aft of the nose bay.
Also, the hole in the cockpit floor was opened
To have something to be seen later on, also opened up one of the rear hatches above the two rear crew members.
The cockpit area was detailed with some sprue and pieces of plastic with the lower area near the hatch also being detailed with some scraps and pieces from the spares box.
All major parts
assembled and masking tape put in places; ready to take first base grey

Also the Hasegawa kit of the A-3 family
member was tackled.
