    Thanks Rodney! @ Model Guy Yea there are.... All I did was follow the B Instructions and filled panel lines and holes that were called out as well as using the fuselage parts called out by the B Instructions..... Now as far as Hasegawa getting it right? I don't know.... But it looks pretty cool to me... I think some folks just aren't getting the concept that the sprues for all three variants B,C & L from hasagawa are the same except for the nose, Intakes and clear parts. Dave

    Yea Jens I get it..... But in this case..... The inaccuracies you mention are the fault of Hasagawa... Not mine. If one were to use a legit boxing of a B.... The same inaccuracies would be present. I never claimed to have fixed them. Just the fact I was able to build in a sense an OOB Hasagawa A-4B. So your implication that I didn't use an A-4M Kit was 100% unfounded..... And quite frankly...... Insulting.... If I had wanted ore needed the inaccuracies pointed out... I would have posted up in Critics Corner...... I am aware that almost 99% of all kits do not accurately represent the subject they are depicting.... And ya know what? It doesn't bother me.... I was able to build a reasonably accurate A-4B without spending a mint on Ebay for an A-4B Boxing. Sure looks like an A-4B To me and that is what matters. Rant over.... Dave

    For all the doubters out there.... Please refer to the below sprue maps. One from the M and one from the B/C...... As you can see.. ALL the basic airframe sprues are the same with the exception of the Model specific ones....... Sprue G in the B kit handles the Intakes, Sprue K handles the Nose and IP....... Hope this helps

    Yup Im sure

    Thanks Brian! Well the sprues cost around 20-25 USD. I downloaded B instructions from 1999.co.jp . It was a straight forward build... Pretty easy.... All ya need is a source for Hasagawa replacement sprues and a A-4M Kit..... Here is the sprue index of the instruction sheet I used..... you need Sprue M, G & K for a A-4B And Sprue M,G and L for a A-4C HTH Dave
