Douglas A-4F Skyhawk
Hasegawa's A-4E/F Skyhawk is available online from Squadron.com
Here is my Hasegawa 1/48 scale A-4F Skyhawk.
This is a beautiful kit and one of the easiest builds I've had the
pleasure of doing. I used the Cutting edge cockpit, which isn't really
much, since the kit cockpit tub looks great already. The weapons are the
old, out of production KMC Napalm canisters. I don't know if that's a
correct loadout and if not...I make no apologies....I do this for fun.
Finishing was done with Tamiya paints this time. I used XF19 Sky
Grey, mixed with white, for the light grey and gloss white for the
undersides. A gloss coat went over this and then the decals.
The decals are from CAM.
A wash of raw umber thinned with lighter fluid followed and then the
entire kit was flat coated with Humbrol flat.
