1/48 A-4C, shelf queen

Recommended Posts

This is a 1/48 A-4C thought was started by Don G. It has been in the stash now for a couple years. I think I have a couple more started models by Don we shall see if they get finished at some point in this GB.

This one will be built to replace a Hobby Craft A-4C I built MANY years ago. It blows dead bears so its going in the trash. We will have a shot of it with this one once its done.

That is when I noticed the model did not have nose weights installed. Sadly I am out and to cheap to go buy any for a while. So I took a dremil to the A-4C that is going in the trash and took the nose weights out of it. Ripped the nose off DonGs A-4, glued the weights in place and sealed it up again.
