    Having re-watched one of my favourite films recently (Good morning, Vietnam) I’ve been inspired to make something from this conflict, finally deciding on Eduard’s A-4 Skyhawk kit Vietnam Scooters. It’s someone else’s basic kit (Hawegawa?) repackaged with some Eduard extras, including a resin seat, etched cockpit details and control panel, canopy mask, and a comprehensive set of markings for six different aircraft.

    Other than liking the look of the Skyhawk, I know next to nothing about these things, so I’m looking for help from you guys on iModeler for any hints, tips, pitfalls to avoid, etc. I bought this kit from a Chinese website, but I note that our good friend Bernd is advertising it on his site for a very reasonable price Thanks for looking.

    I cannot give any pointers on the kit George, but I am quite sure that you will carry this off as easily as your other builds mate.
    Looks colourful markings there .
    She could be a tail sitter though George, so I would check first.

    I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at this “re-boxing”, George…my Eduard F-4 Phantom (Academy plastic), contains the same ‘goodies’ as your A-4 – as for the original kit, I’m unsure [as you are] of the genesis of the first edition. Let us if you find out. Looking forward to your build.

    Thanks for the tips and info. Here are the two fuselage halves almost ready to be joined together, just need to add some weight in the nose first!
