New Zealand Air Force A-4G/K Skyhawks 1970-2001 (Part 1)
If you despaired at not being able to add any
exotic A-4 Skyhawks to your collection, then the time to rejoice is
here!!! Henceforth it is possible, thanks to this new maker of decals from
Australia. The withdrawal of RNZAF ' A-4 prompted this decal maker to
create this decal sheet. It is the complete history of the RNAF A-4 which
can be superbly found on 2 Gekko Graphics decal sheets in 1/48 scale.
|REF 48001 RNZAF A-4G/K
With this first decal sheet you get no less than 20 different planes; 5 in
South East Asian camouflage,9 in European 1, and 6 in integral green. If
Squadron n°2 and 75 change bases regularly, the type of camouflage is
The apparatuses of the Seventies are in SEA with the badge of nationality
in 3 colors. Followed by European 1 between 1980-1990 and the badge into 2
tone; the last decade raising it in integral green with low visibility
markings. The type of plane is G,K,and Kahu, with or without the
dorsal bump containing the avionics. If for G and K, Hasegawa ref.
PT21 limps it is enough; it is not the same for Kahu. These last are
modernized with the F-16 standard and carry sidewinder, Maverick and
GBU-16. You'll have to make yourself a new instrument panel, a HUD,
new Apg-66 radar, the Alr-66 antennas and other UHF and ILS. BUT do
not be discouraged, Gekko Graphics
|is considering a
small conversion set for it.
This decal sheet is strongly recommended.
