1/48 VA-86 A-4E Skyhawk

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've started the history build for VA-86. First one done is the Monogram A-4E. It's a great little kit that can still hold it's own. I did this one OOB, but it could use a new seat and maybe new wheels.The intakes go nowhere, so I used a set of Steel Beach intakes with plugs to take care of the see-through look. Other than that, it's a pretty nice build. I used Mr. Paint Light Gull Gray and Alclad White Primer for the majority of the scheme. Decals are from the old Victory sheet.

That's a sweet look Scooter. That orange on the rudder really pops out at you.
