Hasegawa 1/32, Douglas Skyhawk A-4F, "Lady Jessie"

June 9, 2024 · in Aviation · · 12 · 163

Kit is quite old, and not so fun to build, but I managed to complete it. Raised panel lines are surely not my favorites...
Intake should be naturally white inside, but I noticed it too late in order to fix it. Not the only mistake I'd made, unfortunately. So maybe not my best model by far, but I can live with result. Can be considered as a painting exercise at least.

Painted with Vallejo Model Air acrylics. Weathering with AK, Mig, Tamiya and Vallejo products.
Aftermarket parts only Eduard seat belts, otherwise build out-of-the-box.
