Skyhawk A4 Esci 1/48
I Know this is the second Israeli A4 today but that is purely co-incidence guys ,this is the very old Esci offering that I picked up cheap years ago and has been gathering dust ever since. I bought the decal sheet from Hannants to build the example you see in some of the shots with the more recognisable standard sized star of david roundels but was always curious about the aircraft you see here. The decal sheet has one colour shot and that is the only picture I have been able to find anywhere of an aircraft with these strange oversized markings and the two roundels per wing on the underside , if anyone has any information about this aircraft and it’s markings please let me know…
The Kit is quite basic but has some nice details like the movable wing slats, I added a resin bang seat and the longer engine nozzle from Aeries, hope you like it .
