RAN A4G SKYHAWK

Recommended Posts

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 ladder and wheels chocks
  • Maketar paint mask for RAN roundels - fin checks masked by  hand - very fiddly!
  • AOA A4 airframe stencil decal sheet
  • Scratch intake and exhaust blanks
  • push moulded wing navigation lights & hazard beacons
  • scratch  built forward engine bay door port
  • scratch built detailing added to landing gear & wing pylons
  • various Quickboost bits and pieces like scoops
  • a generous donation of spare Hasegawa A4 sprues from a fellow modeller

:wow:  your  SKYHAWK is the BEES KNEES.... Top Notch  of a build.

 

I love it as she is STUNNING.

 

:bow:  :bow:

 

 

 

{ question: why are they called Scooters?} thank you.

 

:hmmm:

Thanks MARU5137 for taking a look at my A4G - not sure why they are called Scooters  - maybe because of their relative small size and long undercarriage legs? - maybe someone on here could advise on this

Great subject, great build, love it. Fantastic job, especially since it was a re-do of an old assembled kit! Thanks for sharing this so we could follow along with all the ups and downs and see the final result.
