Hasegawa 1/48 TA-4J Blue Angels "Casper"
One thing to keep in mind when building the Hasegawa 1/48 TA-4J, is to ensure you use the vent part for the fuselage just aft of the cockpit. The original boxing of the Hasegawa TA-4J mistakenly directed you to use a part to close up the hole on the spine.
I made use of resin seats from the Classic Airframes TA-4J kits. The adversary boxings (first issue) came with poorly cast seats, but was able to use the cushion parts from the poorly cast seats with the Hasegawa ejection seat sides, for improved detailed seats in other builds. I used the better seats from the later boxing for this build- they have great belt details.
I had hoped to be able to have my "Blue" A-4F and TA-4J's done by now to be posted with this, but I got side tracked by Zeros and a F-8P (French Navy). Postings to come soon!
