A-4E Skyhawk Aggressor - VF45 Blackbirds (Hasegawa 1:48 #07221)


The 1/48 Hasegawa A-4E Skyhawk built pretty much out-of-the-box using TwoBobs 48-018 Top Gun Tinker Toys decals. After recently finishing Jesters Top Gun bird, I had an itch to build another agressor. Looking for a quick build, I figured "in flight" would be the go.

The pilot came from a Hasegawa F/A-18 (he went on a crash diet !) and the only other work I did to the kit was to separate all the control surfaces and reposition them (ailerons, rudder and elevators). Suitable fading was applied to the darker camo colours.
