RAN A-4e Skyhawk 1977.

Another of my very old builds. ESCI 1/72nd kit Modeldecal decals and a memory of 1977 Greenham Common.

Lovely job Paul, :thumbsup:

 

I remember the first time I saw one of these flying at an air show at RANAS Albatross, it scared the crap out of me as it flew in from behind the crowd line while other aircraft were buzzing past in front of us.

Did you also get down to Portsmouth to get on board the carrier? I did but used crap Kodacolor film which means I have poor shots of the event.

 

A very nice build :)

Nah!  I missed the chance. Only made it to Greenham ... for both days as someone gave me a free ride and entry to the show on the Sunday.   Those were definitely the days!!

Nice A-4 and brings back memories of that show in 1977 - I was there too. As @RidgeRunner says, not a toned down scheme in site, everything painted up in proper NATO colours and a huge variety of aircraft. First and only time I saw an A-6 as I recall. 

 

Happy Days

Lovely!  A fine tribute to our (long-gone) carrier-based Fleet Air Arm.
