Yes….a Phantom – but it’s the last one for a while

by Craig Abrahamson on October 15, 2017 in Aviation -- 27 Comments

Tamiya’s 1/32nd scale F-4J. And wouldn’t ya know – after I [thought] I was finally finished, THEN I noticed that I forgot to paint the NMF section(s) on the elevators. Dammit! Oh well, that shouldn’t be too difficult to remedy […]

A-1H Details: ‘Lieutenant America’

by Mike Still on August 20, 2017 in Photo Collections -- 8 Comments

I shot these pics of a restored A-1H, “Lieutenant America”, at Lonesome Pine Regional Airport in Wise County, Va., back in 2011.For a restoration, this Skyraider compares well to photos from Wayne Mutza’s book on A-1’s in Vietnam, Bert Kinzey’s […]

A 38A Skyraider

This is my rendition of a Skyraider in the use of the Royal Swedish Air Force if the Sandy CSAR concept had been brought to the temperate and sub-arctic forests and mountains of the Scandinavian peninsula from the steaming jungles […]

By 1972 a number of the remaining Skyraiders in the Royal Swedish Air Force inventory were re-designated from A (attack) to S (spaning) for the new role as search and rescue aircraft to operate over the Baltic sea and the […]

by Julian Shawyer on August 2, 2017 in Aviation -- 37 Comments

This is a What-if I made a couple of years ago in the markings of a Royal Navy, Fleet Air Arm Skyraider. The Royal Navy had in fact, operated the AD-4W early warning Skyraider, designated AEW.1 and flown by 849 […]

Douglas Skyraider A-1H

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 […]

Fujimi Skyraider AD–6

by Robert Royes on July 7, 2016 in Aviation -- 6 Comments

This is the old 1/7? scale Fujimi kit. Originally I finished it off as a bird from VA-35 off the USS Saratoga in the late fifties, but it fell off the shelf, tail cracking, destroying the decal,[ hazard of building […]

Tamiya A-1H Skyraider 1/48 scale

by Mike Still on May 26, 2016 in Aviation -- 22 Comments

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

by Craig Abrahamson on April 10, 2016 in Aviation -- 27 Comments

This is the old boxing of Monogram’s “Tour of Duty” Skyraider (which I finally got a canopy for)…the kit had no decals, so I “winged” it (no pun intended). This was – if not painfully obvious – a ‘weekend build’, […]
