This is a What-if I made a couple of years ago in the markings of a Royal Navy, Fleet Air Arm Skyraider.
The Royal Navy had in fact, operated the AD-4W early warning Skyraider, designated AEW.1 and flown by 849 Naval Air Squadron during the 195[...]
This model is the Tamya 1/48 A-1H Skyraider kit from Us Navy (USS Midway).
I got CMK complementary set (n°4017) but except internal details under the right exhaust pipes, it's not very interesting given the complete and detailed original Tamya[...]
Everyone knows about VA-176's 'Bumblebee' MiG killer, with its giant killer bee artwork, but the first USN Skyraider to shoot down a MiG-17 seems to be lost in the shuffle.
Tamiya's A-1H USN kit, fortunately, includes markings for VA-25's 'Cana[...]

The kit is a mishmash of the Tamiya A-1H (wings, cowling, e[...]
Hello all! In the hopes of instigating another flash mob group build, I present to you my Monogram A-1H Skyraider that I had finished a couple years ago. I built it for a buddy of mine to represent his uncle's Spad flown over Vietnam. His unc[...]
During the Viet Nam War the Skyraider saw extensive service. Aside from attack duties, it was used in various forms as transports, ambulances, freighters, target tugs, and rescue helicopter escorts. Twice, Skyraiders from VA-25 and VA-176 engage[...]
This was one of those kits that you really enjoy building. Just enough detail to really not need any AM bits other than a choice of decals. Other than the aforementioned decals, it was OOB. Something different as there are a few Skyraider[...]
This was built from the Tamiya kit using AeroMaster decals. Aside from the decals I built this out of the box. I have no idea of who the pilot was or any further history of the airplane. I just liked the scheme. I left it rather clean as I have [...]
