Airfix 1/72 A-4B Skyhawk, VA-15 Valions, USS Intrepid, Tonkin Gulf 1967

Hi all,

I posted pictures of this model before, but since I've added the display stand, so I figured that now it's really finished I'd post some pics of the final result. The kit was an easy build and a cheap one. I spent more on paints and canopy masks than on the actual model 😉
Still, it was a more than welcome break from some way more involved projects that I'm working on.

  2. Great presentation of this Scooter! Liked!
