Hello everybody, now i will show you my sixth A-4 Skyhawk and my second A-4F. It's also from Fujimi.

The Decals wasn't good (too much orange), so i bought me some from camdecals.com. also i used a Nozzle and Wheels from Aires.

Your model does justice to the real thing. First time I saw a Blue Angels Skyhawk formation I was kind of put off. Didn't look good to me. But the Blue Angels colors on the Skyhawk grew on my and now it's perhaps my favorite of all the Blue Angels demonstration airplanes. The Grumman Tiger runs a very close second.

Nice to see such an outstanding Skyhawk. Using a different set of decals was indeed the right choice since those that are in the box are really disappointing.

Very nicely finished.  Not seen one in Blue Angels colours for a very long time.

Beautiful finish!  The first time I saw the Blue Angels, they were flying these... so it brings back memories! :)

First class job, that's got a great finish

I'm not normally a fan of display aircraft models as they tend to look toy like but this is excellent, the sheen and finish looks spot on, one of the best finishes of this kit I've seen :)

Nice finish! any special technique to achieve it? I always got it either too gloss (toy like) or too matte.. :-/ 

What paint did you use for the blue?

 

Errm.... Anyone has the Van Hallen's "Dream" playing in his ears now, or is it just me?

 

 

 

Cheers,

Mario
