Douglas TA-4J Skyhawk – US Navy VT-7 – USS Lexington

Bonjour chers iModelers,
This is my rendition of the colourful TA-4J Skyhawk of the VT-7. This version is quite known, but I wanted to have it in my showcase !
The Hasegawa kits comes with some issues, as often with this brand. But the finesse of the engraved panels is really something, and overall, shapes and dimensions are loyal to the real bird.
Hope you like it 😉
