South American markings, heavily faded.   Nape tanks whereever possible and used for burning coca fields in the early war against drugs.

Oh yeah!  Love the idea of some Sth American A-1s.  Maybe updated later in their lives with something such as a PT6C.

I love the twin Skyraider! After all the money the Marine Corp has spent on the V-22 could you see their faces if they had to use something that even looked like an old Skyraider to escort it? I'd like to be a fly on the wall for that meeting!
Who makes the best 1/72nd kit, I may just have to build it.

Here is a couple of Skyraider based aircraft I did a few years back
http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,26932.0.html
http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,31435.0.html
The first one is a STOL, clandestine insertion/extraction aircraft, the second a butt ugly electronic surveillance aircraft.
I have another 4 seater in the stash waiting to have a Gannet engine and props put on it, it will probably be a transport aircraft or a forward air control bird.

A turboprop modification to the A-1, both single- and multi-seat versions along the lines of the proposed XAT-28F conversion, a solid nose with armament and avionics options and two  turboprops on the wings.  For such a conversion for the A-1, I could see either OV-1 T53 nacelles or larger nacelles with T55's; the first, of course, being easier to model.

Executive aircraft like the prewar A-17A based Model DT-202 proposal.
Use an AD-5/A-1E as the basis. Think Spartan Executive on steroids.
