Hasegawa 1/48 Douglas A-4L Skyhawk

Recommended Posts

 As I've been posting elsewhere on these forums, I'm making four Hasegawa 1/48 A-4 Skyhawks simultaneously and here is the second. This is their A-4L without any aftermarket and in the Cartograf-printed kit decals. Paint is mostly Mr Color. A full build article is at https://jonbryon.com/hasegawa-1-48-douglas-a-4l-skyhawk/ and there is some WIP at https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235065709-hasegawa-148-a-4ehl-and-ta-4j-skyhawks-update-19032020/

 

Comments welcome and thanks for looking.

 

Jon

Very fine work! Nicely done all around. Great attention to detail. 

 

 

What Mr. Color did you use for the Gull Grey?

I don't think I've ever actually seen an A-4L in scale before, or at least that I knew of. Excellent work as per usual Jon. Always enjoy seeing your stuff. How was decaling that Stars and Bars over the refueling probe?

Thanks Whiskey. Surprisingly, the decal was fine. I just draped it over the probe over a large puddle of Mr Mark Setter, and then dumped a lot of Daco Red on it. It's the third time I've applied a decal like this (also on the Hasegawa A-4C and A4D-2) and each time it's gone better than expected!

That's awesome! That national insignia over the vortex generators on the wing and around the refueling probe came out great! 

Great job!

 

Cheers Ron
