Hasegawa A-4M (Cutting Edge conversion)

May 15, 2013 · in Aviation · · 4 · 1.5K

Here's the A-4M done with a Meteor Productions/Cutting Edge resin cockpit conversion, which included the area of the fuselage around the cockpit as well as the interior and a clear resin 2-part canopy/windshield. I think it was something like a year later that brought out their own A-4M. Cutting Edge decals to do VMA-214 Blacksheep

    Tom .. I had to say, going up in a Stearman IS a feeling all it's own .. I love how it almost takes itself off... I was surprised to see an article, pics, about those GREAT birds ! I use to take one up at a small grass strip in Jacksonville, NC ..just a few miles from Camp Lejeune MCB ... where the old man had several other planes ... one of which was the Piper cub .. can still feel the way it bounced going to the end of the "runway, to take off ..!

    Tom .. a little history on me .. when my Uncle would take his Texan up I had to chance to get in lot of hours ... so when I went in to Marines, and later to El Toro I had the chance to get into the "flying-non-coms", a small group that had enough hours/experience to apply .. I later went to New River MCAS and flew some of the Cessna L-19's there... it was a feeling out-of-this-world to get airborn, and "cruise along it that ! Later went aboard the USS Tarawa and flew with VMO-2, I think it was !

    Tom .. IF you flew as good as you build models .. I think you were one very EXCELLENT pilot .. looking to every detail, before, during flights ! Would love to "get a hop" someday with you .. think I could learn a LOT ! Keep up the SUPERB model/s building and sharing them ... would love to see all the models you have built, and how you "exhibit" them ...they are probably OUTSTANDING ... later...
