A4 E/F aggressor?


Recommended Posts

I started a topic earlier on scooters and as I went to get started on my A4 Mike, I came across the Hase E/F boxing I forgot I had.  I was gonna do a 311 grey scooter but I've always wanted to try an adversary scheme.  Not knowing much about them, would this be doable with the E/F?  Thanks

Sure, there were many units that flew A-4E/Fs in the Adversary role.

TOPGUN, VF-43, -45, -126, -127 to name a few. Lots of great schemes too!

I figured that must have been the case...tango Gregg!  I'll be shopping for a decal sheet, so any recommendations will be mucho appreciated👍

I would guess that most of the Skyhawks used for aggressor/adversary training were E/F models.  They were more built and, other than being newer, I don’t think the M model would have added much performance improvement over the E/F, especially those resisted with the larger engine.

Fightertown Decals specializes in Adversary schemes, as Brian grew up on and around NAS Miramar.  Can't think of his A-4 stuff specifically, but if anyone knows the stuff, it's him!

Cool, I used to live in old town and would drive to Miramar all the time.  Great air shows.  I've used his sheets before, I'll def check em out, thanks👍

If you can track down Fightertown Decals 48036 and 48027, we have some E/F/M, TA-4J/Fs. 

The best sheet out there is Fights On 48001 and 48002 - great stuff!

Yeah I had my eye on that sheet...haven't been in stock in any of my usual go to spots.. overall grey scooter schemes seem to be the same deal

The last Fights On! A-4 sheet I got was from Hannants - they only had ONE of the two sheets in stock, but maybe i'ts what you want, and thus worth a look? That said, the Fights On! and FTD are getting harder to source...

I *may* have 1-2 copies of those sheets in storage. I sent all but a few Fights On sheets to Sprue Brothers when Mike Pister and I decided to split up Fights On from Vagabond. (Rough year, that one.) I already have had one request for a couple if I can find where the movers put then. If you can give me a couple weeks to get out to my storage room with actual time to look, I'll be happy to see if there's any left. I can't promise they're still there, however. Stuff was packed up over a year ago, and I was already at my new job when the movers came. We've had 1-2 boxes turn up missing as we've gone through stuff.

Hey, I really appreciate the thought.  I gave up the search,  put the scooter back on the shelf and started another Tomcat..so no hurries, no worries.  If the sheet turns up that would be great..just let me know.  Tango👍
