  1. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time. Thank you craig @modelling minion for coming up with the idea and kindly hosting My offering will be no doubt a popular kit here; the hasegawa 1/48 (wearing it’s M-guise in my case.) I have an aires resin office to play with, i’ve never tried a resin cockpit before so that’s something to get stuck into. Then I have these devil dog scooter decals on their way. I’m going for a low-viz M scheme. (not sure which one yet... decisions decisions...) To load up on weaponry (scooters look gre
  2. Hi folks, Thought I'd best get my contribution to this GB set up in readiness for making a start at the weekend when the firing pistol goes. My kit of choice from the stash (mainly because it's the only Scooter I have), is the 1/72 Airfix A-4B offering. However, as you can see from the obligatory box art shot - mine also has a friend in the form of a MiG-17 to keep them company: I bought this set after spotting it in the Chester Model Centre (back in the good old days before Covid-19 and you could still visit places). I had been wanting the new M
  3. Hello guys, I'd like to know if someone could provide me with a sprue map/photo of the sprues of the 1977, 5406 kit, Monogram model. I'm looking to build an A-4E without the hump and with the smooth fairing. I've checked everywhere, but I haven't been able to locate a page with the sprue map. TIA!
  4. Decided to revisit the first Argentinian aircraft I built (2018). Originally, the slat bays were painted in RLM 02 because I didn't have red. Photo of the real aircraft. You can also see that the inner portion of the flaps were painted in camouflage colour:
  5. Hi all ! Thanks very much for my acceptance in this group build . As discussed with modelling minion , I'll start posting my WIP today but I actually started my build a few months ago. So , don't think I'm a fast builder since I'm a very slow builder indeed . The model : As usual for most of our kits , let's start with the bang seat . My A-4F his equipped with an Escapac IC-3 ( black in this case ) and I will represent it with it's security on ( pilots call it the headknocker !!!! ) in other words with it's headkno
  6. Hello! It's my new kit. In assembly it was easy. As additional I used few additional sets. Reskit wheels set, , Eduard F.O.D. Eduard bombs and TER , Aires ejection seat. I made a navigation light from red clear plastic. And made imitation of hoses on gear and in wheels bays. Paintibg-MR. Color Weathering- oil dots washes and pigments.
  7. Hello guys, It's been a while since I posted anything. Today I bring you this A-4AR Fightinghawk of the Fuerza Aérea Argentina. It wears the scheme of the 100 years of the FAA.
  8. Such is my collection if kits "in progress", I went back and forth (and every other direction) deciding what to finish. First up, the Airfix Skyhawk. While this kit is built from the starter pack, early releases of that included the "full" decal sheet, with markings for the Argentine Air Force, as well as the USN: So here was the kit as I left it a couple of years ago. Why did I leave it be? Who knows? Only the arrestor hook needs to be attached, and that because I need to finish painting it first. So, after a rush of painting, and some decals:
  9. Hello there! Next on the list of the Falklands/Malvinas serie I picked an Italeri SkyhawkA-4E and decided to adventure myself on a conversion to a A-4 "C"... using some spare parts from the Hasegawa kit (mainly the cone shape). Also it was the first time I intended to replicate a piece with POXIPOL, a plastic cement very popular in South America, in this case for the dorsal radome (different shapes between the naval "Q" and the FAA "B" and "C"). I saw a technique on the web using silycone as a mould, and POXIPOL as main element. It worked! I used the decals that come with the H
  10. Hi to all! Here is my latest finished job and this is first time posting my job on this forum. So, model is Airfix A-4B Skyhawk, 1/72 scale and in Argentina colors. It's wonderful Airfix kit and it's pleasure to working on it... Take a look.... Thanks!
  11. Dogfight Doubles MiG-17F 'Fresco' & Douglas A-4B Skyhawk (A50185) 1:72 Airfix It is good to see the return of "Dog fight Doubles" most of us have built them before and we will have a memory of them. This time Airfix have combined their newer tool A-4 and MiG-17 in a Vietnam themed box, As well as the two kits they include paints and glue to aid the construction, and one of their black triangular stands to display the two models in flight / a dog fight if the modeller wishes. MiG-17F 'Fresco' Although outwardly similar to th
  12. For some strange and inexplicable moment I obviously don't think that I have enough on my plate already so here goes with build number three in the GB. Following hot on the heels of my Skyraider comes another Monogram classic in the form of the A-4 Skyhawk, this has been boxed in a variety of slightly different forms over the years and can basically be built as either an A-4E or F out of the box, my boxing is for a Blue Angels F; Fresh from a certain internet auction site the very blue plastic came still sealed in it's original plastic bag; Upon opening the
  13. Morning folk's after a couple of years now building mostly golden oldie's I thought it time to get out the airbrush and embark on a series of build's with more modern offering's covering my favourite US Navy aircraft in the classic Gray/White period of their service.First up is Airfix's Skyhawk a cracking little kit it is too,I broke up the upper surface gray a little with a few passes of the airbrush in a lighter then ran a dark gray wash into the panel's,this first one a practice piece for what's to follow which will be the Panther,Cougar,Fury,Prowler and Intruder and hopefu
  14. A-4B/Q Undercarriage Set (for Airfix Kit) 1:72 CMK by Special Hobby The new tool a few years back now from Airfix was very welcome, it gives you a sense of how good the kit is that there is not much aftermarket for kit out there. This set even though it says Undercarriage set is really the undercarriage bays. You get both main gear bays and the nose bay; as well as all the gear aby door. Given the layout of the airfix kit some major surgery will be required to use all these. All the parts are very well cast. Review sample cou
  15. Hi All Here is my Malaysian Skyhawk that didn't make it in the Frontline Asia 80's GB . This is one of many that missed in recent GBs . The rest may also appear here . Boot recei.ved . As always comments are welcome . More soon Martin H
  16. Hello, Here's my just finished 1/72 Fujimi A-4E Skyhawk. I used Armycast decals (very nice!) to do it as an ex-US Navy A-4E with 110 Squadron in 1973, before it got the extended tailpipe and DEFA guns. I added some M117's from Brassin on the MER on the centreline, the LAU-10's on the wings are from the kit. The green, brown and grey are Humbrol, the sand color is ModelMaster. Thanks for looking, I hope you like it.
  17. Greetings everyone ! This will be a fast project ! The Hasegawa kit is an old one with no detail . Fitting is acceptable . I decided to paint the model with a cute green camo that i found on the internet . I don't know if it's historically valid but i don't care much . This is my progress so far . Hope you like it !

  18. HobbyBoss is to release in late February 2019 a 1/72nd Douglas A-4E Skyhawk kit - ref. 87254 Source: http://www.hobbyboss.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=129&l=en It'll be the first of a 1/72nd Skyhawk family. - ref. 87254 - Douglas A-4E Skyhawk - ref. 87255 - Douglas A-4F Skyhawk - ref. 87256 - Douglas A-4M Skyhawk V.P.
  19. Here`s new model for my "Falklands War collection" - 1/72 A-4Q Skyhawk of Argentine Naval Aviation, code 3-A-305 (ex-US Navy A4D-2 serial 144929), Rio Grande air base, Falklands War, May 1982. Built of Airfix` kit A03029, which seems to be a quite nice kit, but requires a lot of work because of terrible and stupid errors (worst of them is bad nose angle). I think that old Fujimi from 1980`s is still much better than Airfix from 2012. I`ve used PE parts from Eduard, resin fuel tanks from Brengun, resin ejection seat from Pavla and decals from Condor Decals and DP Casper.
  20. Phase Hangar Resin Accessories is to release a serie of sets for the 1/48th Hasegawa Scooters. Among others are parts to convert the Hasegawa TA-4J into 1/48th Douglas OA-4M and TA-4KU Skyhawk!

  21. The A-4H was developed specially for Israel, it was A-4E which featured improved avionics and the improved thrust J52-P-8A engine. Armament consisted of twin DEFA 30 mm cannons. Later modifications included the avionics hump and an extended tailpipe, implemented in Israel by IAI. Pics thanks to Dov.
  22. Last week I managed to finish this Hasegawa TA-4F Skyhawk in adversary markings. It is one of several adversary Skyhawks I have built, and I started it more than five years ago. It was a straight forward build but it just got sidetracked by lots of other models. I sprayed it freehand with Xtracolor enamels and used Fightertown decals for the markings. This is the company she will be joining: Jens
  23. Douglas A-4F Skyhawk, an improved A-4E. Pics thx to Dov.
  24. Douglas A-4B/Q Skyhawk 1:72 Airfix A03029A The Douglas A-4 Skyhawk was a carrier capable ground attack aircraft developed for the US Navy and US Marine Corps. It is a delta winged single engine aircraft. It was developed by the Douglas Aircraft Company originally under the A4D designation, latter changed to A-4. The A-4 was designed by Ed Heinemann to a 1952 US Navy specification for a carrier based attack aircraft capable of carrying heavy loads. For this an aircraft was to have a maximum weight of 30,000Lbs, and be capable of speeds up to 495 mph. Initial
  25. And the third finish of 2019 from my Airfix therapy build thread: The loveable li'l Airfix Scooter. paints by Mr Color and an Xtradecals set used. Nice little kit with usual issues for new Airfix but looks good to me. BTW the repeated comments about missing pilots, drones etc have been registered and are just as funny as they were six months ago : These are being sold on as desktop models to non-modellers who don't care for little plastic men with smeary badly painted faces! Great to get three done in a month but really could do a lot more with organization: Took some liberties wit
