Hasegawa's 1/48 scale A-4C Skyhawk is available online from
Here is Hasegawa's A-4B/C Skyhawk kit.
The model was built mostly straight out of the box
except for the additions required to turn it into an Argentina bird. I
used my usual techniques that you are aware of. Gunze paints used
throughout sprayed with an Iwata HP-BC airbrush. Modifications for the
Argentina version include adding the round antennas on the tail with
wire; sculpting the black radome on the top of the fuselage from
plasticard and adding the top red navigation light from the spares box.
The paint scheme was taken from Issue 5.9 of Scale
Aviation Modeler International Latin Hawks. Decals are from a small
company called FM.
A total of 30 hours was invested in the project.
