Readers’ Gallery: Max Haithcox’s 1/48 Sword Northrop N-9MA

Agape forum member Max Haithcox posted photos of this very unusual build. I have not seen this kit before- very cool indeed- thanks for sharing it Max!

Recently I got out of my comfort zone and picked up this simple, no frills Sword 1/48 N-9MA. After a really, really long build… here she is!

The cockpit was a little too sparse so I added tape seat belts and cut the canopy for an open display. The gear wells were completely blank. Especially the main wells, there was nothing there except the bottom of the top wing. So I used some sheet and added some detail along with some wires to liven it up a bit.
