Although I like building 1/32nd scale aircraft I do tend to prefer adversary and aggressor aircraft in 1/48th scale.

Out of the 51 adversary Skyhawks I have planned to build these are the ones that have been finished so far.

 

All are Hasegawa kits with decals from Afterburner, Fightertown, Classic Airframes, Twobobs and Gekko Graphics. Painting was done freehand with mostly Xtracolor enamels.

Great subjects!  I'm not sure I've seen such a range of camo on a single aircraft type (although I'm sure that statement will spark some discussion) and the examples in this thread look terrific.  I'll get a pic together of my most common builds when I get back from travel, but these are great looking planes.  Nice work Jens!

The A4 is a cool looking machine!  Your collection looks excellent.  I didn't realise that there were so many color variations.

Jens,

  Now that's some start to your massive 1/48 scale Scooter collection. I'm working on my 2nd Scooter now, and plan on a few more down the road.

Thanks for all the comments. :)

As for the variations in colour scheme the A-4 has had so many different colour schemes that I will not be able to cover half of them depiste having plans about building at least 50 adversary Scooters. 

 

Here are some of my WIPs:
