Douglas A-4F Skyhawk

Lady Jessie, VA-164 “Ghostriders”, United States Navy, USS Hancock, 1971

Ah! Another favourite airplane! I loved it ever since I first saw it in the Top Gun movie. This kit is a Special Edition re-boxing of the Hasegawa kit by Eduard.

It was built out of the box, as the box includes almost anything you would want. Eduard provides a full set of PE for the cockpit, a resin seat and a large dedal sheet with multiple colour scemes.

What I did add were a couple of TERs and 8 bombs, donated by the F-111C that I recently built. I also added some “Remove Before Flight” tags by Eduard.
