Yom Kippur War…1/48 Douglas A-4E Ayit, Israeli Airforce
Back in 2016/17 my father built a fully loaded Israeli hotrod too as adversary for the Iraqi Su-7.
Like with the Fitter, also took some new pics to pay tribute to my dad´s model.
Hasegawa kit (VA-55 A-4E/F), decal sheets for Ayits are no longer available or at least hard to get, therefore had to use different sources, the stencils are from the kit, the roundels from the Hobbycraft A-4E/H kit, the numbers from an Isradecal number sheet and the squadron badges from Isradecal Mystere sheet.
Gunze H310/312/313/314 for the camo, Quickboost seat, Snakeeyes, MER and LAU-3 rocket pods from Hasegawa weapon sets.
The model shows an aircraft of IAF Squadron No.116 “Flying Wing” during the Yom Kippur War in 1973.
