Fujimi 1/72 Douglas A-4F Skyhawk

Recommended Posts

My 11th and last build of 2020 is a Vietnam War-era A-4F Skyhawk. I added the APS-107 RHAW sensor under the nose and armed the Skyhawk for the SAM Suppression mission which the US Navy calls 'Iron Hand'. Decals are from Superscale. Painted in acrylics and given slightly heavier weathering with oils to depict a war-time bird.
















With fellow CVW-21 stablemate from VF-211 Checkmates. NP-103 wears markings from 1968 however.

All comments welcome. Thanks for looking.

Superb pilot and Airplane. It looks awesome like a real A4 Skyhawk. I used to see ones like that at and Miramar when I used to live near there as a kid. Thanks


Thanks for the kind comments!
