is available online from Squadron
This is the Hasegawa A-4 Skyhawk E/F kit in
The model was built straight out of the box thanks to the good engineering on
The kit decals were used for the USS Bon Homme
The kit did not come with any weapons so I used the KMC Rocket Launcher, and the
Hasegawa weapons set for the MK 82 's .
I made a base and added some of the Hasegawa Aircraft maintenance set to enhance
This was a beautiful kit to build , I used Gunze and Tamiya paints for the plane

techniques and information on the Skyhawk. I could not have finished this
project without his help.
