  1. For the "In the Navy" group build I pulled a very old kit from the loft: Hasegawa TA-4J Skyhawk in 1/32 This kit was one of the first 1/32 Hasegawa kits (after their F-104) that was released around 1981 along with their single seat A-4E Skyhawk. I am sure many of folks here know or even have made this kit, but the last decades I have only seen a few made. It is still the only TA-4 trainer in this scale. As it is so long ago, I thought it would be nice to first show the contents of kit #S024: The sprues are in white plastic with
  2. A question for the Skyhawk Experts: can the Aires Wheel Bay (& Gun Bay) (#2172) be used to improve Trumpy A-4M? Thx in advance for your advice! Happy modelling, Stefano
  3. Hi all Here is my RAN A4G Skyhawk finally finished 4 months after my last post -it is a shelf of doom rebuild. WIP link here - https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/76932-ran-a4g/page/3/&tab=comments#comment-1167121 The main list of parts used and some of the detailing as follows - Avionix A4E resin cockpit Aires resin Wheel bays and white metal landing gear set AMS resin wheels Eduard slat and vortex generators etch SAC Buddy Pod Master refuelling probe and cannon barrels Flight Path USN Carrier Deck set provided the ladd
  4. Here are the models that I like the most: Chance Vought F4U-5 Corsair Armada Argentina. It's the Hasegawa F4U-5N with Phoenix aftermarket decals. Airfix's 1:72 A-4Q Armada Argentina and Hobbycraft's 1:48 A-4P of the Fuerza Aérea Argentina. Airfix's 1:48 Canberra as B-109 from the Fuerza Aérea Argentina: And finally, a what if Ta 183 in Argentinian markings. This was inspired by the Pulqui 2, aircraft built according to Kurt Tank's plans in the Fabrica Militar de Aviones in Argentina after WW2.
  5. 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. Jens
  6. Hey, Why not peanut..... a 2sd for the GB. Since my 'Red Devils' (mud mover) is well under way, not to say 90% done, and getting weirdly addicted to this group built.... I decide to jump in with another Scooter, my Israeli A-4N was so quick with no fit issue from my POV.... I decide to go on, and should have enough time to do it before December. For this one, I will use Edward S.A. interior, Quickboost seat and antenna, True Details wheels.... And as for the decals, I remember reading two years ago, a nice built article in Wing Master no:86, did a trade last month for
  7. Vietnam A-4's were supposed to be the second AOA release after the initial USMC A-6A sheet about a year ago but they got pushed back for various reasons. They are up for release finally (in 1/32) - estimated to be available in January. Rather than one extra-large release again (like the last A-6A sheet…) this time they've been broken down to somewhat smaller sizes: Part 1 (32-010) 10 schemes (also will include stencil sheet 32-012) VMA-223 Bulldogs – 5 schemes covering 1966-69 from Chu Lai VA-94 Mighty Shrikes – 4 schemes, 3 cruises (Bon Homme Richard 1968, 1969, and 1970 - replaceme
  8. I know the Trumpeter kit doesn't come with the A-4 specific ladder, is there any aftermarket one available? Or does the old Hasegawa kit come with it since the 1/48 versions do? Thanks
  9. I rewrote this (Jan 9) - these will are released. A package of AMS Resin's previously released A-4C conversion (for Trumpeter kit) along with new AOA decals. Now available: http://aoadecals.com/32013/ $60 US / $69 international - which includes AMS Resin conversion and the the AOA decal sheet (free shipping in US) This conversion package would include three A-4C's from Vietnam. To my knowledge, none of these schemes have ever been done in any scale before: VMA-214 Blacksheep 1966/67 VA-146 Blue Diamonds 1964-65 VA-216 Black Diamonds 1964-65. Decals are on one full size sheet, and
  10. I've been a lurker here on LSP for the most part, aside from a stalled Su-27 build I started a while back. That build stalled due to a leak in my roof that caused the ceiling in my workspace to collapse. That was over 5 months ago, and the room is finally rebuilt (the walls had to be torn down to remove the wet insulation). I wanted to do a completely new build to get my mojo back, and I had the Hasegawa A-4E sitting on the shelf. I had gotten the kit a while back, along with SAC metal gear and a Quickboost ejection seat. In the interim, I picked up a set of True Details wheels and the box has
  11. I recently rediscovered Hasegawa's OA-4M in the attic. It seems that the rear IP is that of a TA-4J while I would assume that the rear cockpit would resemble the IP of an A-4M. Rear cockpit photo of a TA-4J from www.a4skyhawk.org Can anyone help me with pics on the rear OA-4M cockpit? Thanks in advance! Erik B.
