Just recently off the bench is my rendition of the older but excellent Monogram 1/48 OA-4M in the two tone gray finish. I used Mr. Color paints and their semi-gloss for a final finish. Furball decals were also used and I cannot say [...]
This is my entry into the Falkland's War group build - the new-tool Airfix A-4. Built OOB except for the replacement of the spine aerial and the addition of fin loop aerials to convert from a B to a P, and the addition of a TER to handle [...]
My penultimate build for 2020 is the new tool Airfix A-4 Skyhawk. It’s not my best work but, it’s a decent 3 footer. The panel lines on top of the fuselage were very soft so I rescribed them. I tried shading panel lines with water [...]
I posted pictures of this model before, but since I've added the display stand, so I figured that now it's really finished I'd post some pics of the final result. The Airfix kit was an easy build and a cheap one. I spent more on [...]

Hasegawa kit (VA-55 A-4E/F), decal sheets for Ayits are no [...]
What to do with a spare Skyhawk fuselage from the Hasa. TA-4/A-4 kit. Make it into a trailered airshow attraction, I got the idea after seeing an F-4 set up in a similar way at an airshow. I shortened the trailer from Airfix's tank [...]
I have always wanted a Blue Angels' bird in my hangar, and finally settled on the Skyhawk. I used CAM decals on it and some Eduard photo etch. I know she is not as shiny as it should be, but I didn't want the airframe too shiny so I [...]
18 years ago I bought a model on the E Day and the wheel bay and interior from Aires. I started to build a model but soon my strength came and the model wandered for a long time in the cabinet. This autumn I managed to finish. I made dirt [...]
This is Hasegawa's Blue Angel boxing of the TA-4J Skyhawk, the kit gives you a choice of doing a single seat or the trainer version. I chose to do the dual seat version in the markings of VC-2 [ Fleet Composite Squadron] stationed at NAS [...]
