1/72 RNZAF A-4K Skyhawk

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
This is the New Zealand-exclusive Flying Kiwis rebox of the Italeri A-4E/F kit, which came with low-viz markings decals as work by our Skyhawks from the mid-1990s until retirement, with some surgery and extra bits by me to replicate 05 as she was on the day of the Air Combat Force disbandment, December 13 2001. I've seen photos and heard stories of her display at Sqn Ldr Jason "Easty" Easthope's hands that day so I thought it'd be the best subject. I'd already been saving reference material for a while when a friend and fellow member of the WONZ forum asked if I'd like this kit as he wasn't going to do anything with it.

Phil Treweek's Kiwi Aircraft Images website and the book Skyhawks by Don Simms and Nick Lee-Frampton were invaluable references for this build.

Nice job on this Zac, it's always nice to see a kit one has squirreled away brought to life, especially when it is so nicely done. :)

Well done!

The dark colouring gives it an aggressive look IMHO.

Nice job.

👍
