TA-4J Skyhawk of VC-2 NAS Oceana Va. 1975. Hasegawa 1/72
This is Hasegawa's Blue Angel boxing of the TA-4J Skyhawk, the kit gives you a choice of doing a single seat or the trainer version. I chose to do the dual seat version in the markings of VC-2 [ Fleet Composite Squadron] stationed at NAS Oceana . I modified decals of a single seat bird from an old microscale sheet. I include a photo that I took of the actual aircraft so many moons ago in 1975.
Sharp little Scooter!
Nice lookin' build, Robert...
Very handsome! It is always special when your skills allow you to model a bird you have actually seen!
awesome couple models rob
Outstanding Skyhawk, Robert!
Looks good Robert, nice to see it in company with RAN A4G, well done !
A lovely looking bird you have there Robert, very nice indeed.
That's a fine looking Scooter Robert. I like it.
Nice work, Robert. That boxing of the kit is vintage ‘70s too!
Thank you all.

OK … now this get's strange … I just logged in … made my comments to the beauty Aleksander shared with us and now this … thank you Robert , a pure sight for these eyes. Very clean and sharp work. I have always considered the A-4 to be one of a few that always looks good in models. This one is no exception, actually you have made me go thru my memory lane and remember when VC-2 would come by here and join in with VC-8 . They would give us air support while we performed our duties in various OCEANVENTURES … thank you for that.
VC-8 of Roosevelt Roads?
Good times and memories.
