Here is my 1/48 TA-4J Blue Angels "Casper"- a replacement aircraft that served in an all white scheme during 1981 Winter Training.
One thing to keep in mind when building the Hasegawa 1/48 TA-4J, is to ensure you use the vent [...]
Hello iModeler! Here is my first completed build of the 2022. Eduard A-4E Skyhawk. I had a lot of fun building this kit, despite a lot of self inflicted headaches with painting and finishing. Upon reviewing the photos I noticed a few [...]
I bought up a lot of 1/48 ESCI A-4's years ago, and was not aware of the issues with the kit. The canopy is closer to the real A-4 than the Monogram canopy, but the exhaust area of the kit, is more of an ogival cross section than the [...]
My third A-4, and last for a little while, is the Monogram A-4E kit with improvements to the kit, and modifications to build it as an ex-Israeli A-4H in service of the Indonesian Air Force- TNI-AU.
The first issue to deal with on the [...]
Here is my second IAF Skyhawk- a TA-4H. The Classic Airframes kit is quite good- with a few issues. The best part of them is the lack of "step" on the leading edge of the wing, for the slat. on the real plane there is no step [...]

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 [...]
