Malaysia National Day

 

      

This desktop model was built from the Fujimi 1/72 A-4C. The hump, radar altimeter, and brake chute came from a Fujimi A-4E/F kit. Fujimi's kit builds into a lovely replica of the real thing and is beautifully detailed but, due to its modular design, can be a bit tricky to build.

Painting was done using Gunze Mr Color 304 and 309 to depict the two-tone wraparound scheme used during the later period of the A-4PTM's service. Decals came from a VFA Production sheet and the pilot is from an Airfix kit.

The Skyhawk is mounted on a stand that comes with the models accompanying Amercom's magazine, but I haven't had the opportunity to make a proper nameplate for it yet. 

Happy Merdeka to my fellow Malaysians!
