Such as the ProModeler Blue Angels release of the Hasegawa A-4F because it has the larger Super Fox intakes and often can be purchased for a song.   :)

(looks at new profile, goes to the 'To Buy' list, and adds a couple more Hasegawa Skyhawks to the list)


Indeed that is very fine.  :)

That grey over grey RAN Skyhawk is beautiful!

Beautiful Skyhawks.  Would the RAAF be buying any late-model Skyhawks with the ARBS in the nose?  Perhaps to go along with their Harrier II's?

RAAF Skyhawks! That'll be next! Plus Royal Navy and Air Force.  :-*

As for the ARBS nose? Maybe. ;D

I suspect with all of the islands in the operating area the camouflage on the RAN aircraft is a must have but I am still preferring the gray/grey versions :)

Nice scheme with a simple demarcation line certainly makes the Skyhawk look good.  Have you considered a blue over white scheme?

You mean like the 1960's Royal Navy schemes Jeffry?

Here's a German Navy Skyhawk. I envision these flying off a modified Merchant Bulk Carrier with a ski-jump. The German Navy needed a carrier capability very quickly so that it could have a Naval Aviation presence in the Red Sea to protect its oil and cargo interests from "pirates" operating in the area. The Skyhawks would have been RATO equipped.
