RA-5C Vigilante
Corrections and Updates for the 1/48 scale Trumpeter kit


Cutting Edge Modelworks

HyperScale is proudly sponsored by Meteor Productions



Meteor Productions has supplied the following information about three new releases that are shipping  now:

CEC48486 RA-5C Forward Fuselage/Canopy/Fin Correction Set for Trumpeter. The 1/48 Trumpeter RA-5C front fuselage has numerous shape errors, including being too wide and not having the "mae west" or "double bubble" shape along the bottom of the canopy and spine. Our set corrects these errors, and even includes clear cast windscreen, pilot's canopy, and rear cockpit cover. It also includes a correct pitot tube to fit our fuselage and a correctly sized and shaped upper vertical fin to replace the too-short and misshapen kit part. This set is necessary to correct BOTH the early (Dash 8) and late (Dash 10) variants of the RA-5C. Note that correct intakes with full intake throats are available separately in sets CEC48487 (early version) and CEC48488 (late version). (Please note the canopy parts are shown in gray here for visibility; the parts you will receive are crystal clear resin castings!) $36.99  
CEC48487 RA-5C Early Seamless Intakes & Full Throats for Trumpeter. This set provides properly configured (Dash 8 engine) intakes and seamless full intake throats for the early Viggie. $19.99

CEC48488 RA-5C Late Seamless Intakes, Full Throats, & Rear Fuselage Correction for Trumpeter. This set provides properly configured intakes (Dash 10) and full intake throats for the late model Viggies. Furthermore, although the "thumb" shaped part at the aft end of the fuselage is more-or-less correct for the EARLY RA-5Cs, it is not useful for the later models. Therefore, our set includes a properly shaped and configured rear fuselage part for the later (Dash 10) Viggies. $24.99
