Douglas A-4F Skyhawk

by Michael Woodgate


Douglas A-4F Skyhawk


Hasegawa's 1/48 scale A-4F Skyhawk is available online from Squadron.com




This is Hasegawa's recent 1/48 scale A-4F Skyhawk. The model has been built straight from the box.



Gunze acrylics were used to paint my Skyhawk. Panel lines were highlighted with Gunze "Smoke Grey" applied with a brush. I did not want the panel lines to look too conspicuous, similar to the real aircraft.



Decals are a mix of kit markings and decals from the old Monogram kit. The old Monogram decals work quite well as long as the white gum is washed from the decals before they are applied to the model. I cannot justify spending more than AUD$20 on decals in these days of the weak Australian dollar!
