Malaysia National Day



Here's my attempt at recent Hobby boss 1/48 A-4E/F Skyhawk, converted into A-4PTM as operated by TUDM. A-4PTM was a upgraded A-4C/L for Malaysia which has shorter nose and different intake compare to A-4E/F.

Modifications include home made resin nose, intakes, re-position the flaps and slats as well as a number of changes on panel lines. Kit's avionic hump was also replaced with home made ones.

Decals came from spare box.

Happy Merdeka 2019.
