1/72 Airfix A-4B Skyhawk

Gallery Article by Fermín Cachón Álvarez on June 18 2015



Back in 2009 I spent a few weeks in NY city where I was able to visit the USS Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. During the visit to the museum I really enjoyed the VA-95 A-4B Skyhawk display, and when I found that Airfix had made a model that could be built with the same specifications as the Intrepid's Skyhawk I said to myself, I must build this bird.

The model is nicely molded and it's construction is really straightforward.  The level of detail is really good taking into account that it is a quite small bird (1/72). 

I really enjoyed the construction of this kit, so if you are a fan of the Skyhawk I highly recommend you to get it.
