This little 1/72 A-4B Airfix Skyhawk kit is a super nice & easy to build new tooling one.
It comes with a decal set for 2 markings; A US Navy one and a Argentinian livery.
Build this one straight from the box and only added 3 small polystyrene mirrors.
I used Vallejo primer and Tamiya acrylics for the paintjob.
The decals are of a very good quality and used Microscale Set & Sol for a very smooth result.
So a highly recommended kit imho and I'm probably gonna build another one in the future.
Never did a US Navy hi viz scheme before and this was the perfect exercise for future US Navy plane projects like the F-4 Phantom & F-14 Tomcat. Vallejo acrylic primer, Tamiya acrylics & weathering pigments, Pledge floor varnish, AK-interactive washes and Watercolor pencils were used to paint this bird.The build was really straightforward with some minor filling. I shortened the front landing gear since I don't like the look of that... so took some artistic freedom right there. =+)
