Kuwaiti A-4KU Fujimi 72nd Scale
May 13, 2013 in Aviation
Hello everyone, my 2nd posting was inspired by Neil’s Israeli A-4. So tonight I present Fujimi’s 72nd scale Skyhawk, After returning home from the Gulf War back in 91, I haven’t quite yet got back into building again. Picked up a kit here and there but did not build. But a Scale Modeler issue appeared with an article about some of the Desert Storm aircraft that participated in that war. And that inspired me to start collecting as many of the aircraft in kit form that participated. At first I had limited myself to just Naval Air, in 48th scale only(USN/USMC). Then I was invited to modeling club meeting (IPMS)while living in New England, and picked up this Fujimi kit, what a gem for it’s day. And went ahead and built it and then now I started in not just doing US aircraft but other coalition aircraft and some Iraqi as well. And really this kit is still a gem to this day. This one built OOB, except for the Modeldecal set for the Kuwaiti decals. Really a nice easy build, don’t recall any issues, and haven’t read any bad reviews. A neat little kit to build love those scooters. Interesting scheme for this variant.
