Airfix 1/72 A-4B Skyhawk, VA-15 Valions, USS Intrepid, Tonkin Gulf 1967
In order to keep the illusion going for the kids, I always purchase gifts for my wife and myself to put under the tree with their gifts around Christmas. For myself I usually just get something cheap and so this year I bought the Airfix Skyhawk kit. Must be one of the best 13 Euros I’ve ever spent!
Had a lot of fun building this one, and had an equal amount of fun researching just how damn grimy these planes would get after prolonged service on board a carrier.
I think I spent more on buying the paint and the Eduard masking set than on the actual kit 😉
All she needs now is a flying stand.
So, in conclusion, if you need a break from big and involved projects, you could do a lot worse than dropping a few of your hard earned on this Scooter.
