by Christian WERY on September 16, 2016 in Aviation -- 39 Comments

This model is the Tamya 1/48 A-1H Skyraider kit from Us Navy (USS Midway). I got CMK complementary set (n°4017) but except internal details under the right exhaust pipes, it’s not very interesting given the complete and detailed original Tamya […]

Everyone knows about VA-176’s ‘Bumblebee’ MiG killer, with its giant killer bee artwork, but the first USN Skyraider to shoot down a MiG-17 seems to be lost in the shuffle. Tamiya’s A-1H USN kit, fortunately, includes markings for VA-25’s ‘Canasta […]


Monogram 48th scale Skyraider

In Spring 2011, I built and entered a Tamiya 1:48 A-1 Skyraider for the Vietnam War Group-Build at . I was lucky enough to be voted ‘third overall’ in the resultant poll, and thought no more about it until […]

Skyraider, an old one, very old indeed.

by Simon Whitney on January 6, 2015 in Aviation -- 22 Comments

Well as I started dusting off old kits, I decided to post this one. It`s the old Monogram/Revell kit. Not a lot to it, not much in the way of under wing stores. Glued and painted by me, using brushes […]
