1/48 Monogram A-4E Skyhawk

Gallery Article by Paul Coppin on July 17 2014


Hello again :) this is my Monogram A4-E Skyhawk of VA-152 USS SHANGRI-LA in 1970.  This was an old kit I picked up cheap (5) on e-bay, and the detailing is not as good as other manufacturers, but it did not turn out to bad in the end.  I made this bird back in 2010 & the fit was quite good if I remember rightly.

I used Tamiya paints and Vellejo varnishes, but I decided to make this Skyhawk have a very clean (like new) finish for a change.

I hope you like the photos of my Skyhawk and will upload more of my work soon.  

Thanks for looking.
