This is my HobbyCraft 1/48 A-4C build as A-4PTM of the TUDM No 9 Squadron base at Kuantan AFB. I build this model OOB expect with the addition of antennas at the rear of the vertical tail and also on top of the hump. A probe also added to the front of the windshield. I accidentally crack the kit canopy while building, Gareth from My Affix is kind enough to spare me one form the Monogram kit. The replacement canopy don't fit perfectly so I have to post it in open position.
The decal is from the kit and the
square national marking donated by friend from Italari F-5E kit. The marking is
incomplete, still missing is the squadron tail art of a Hawk head. I used
Gunze Sangyo paint for this project, as with all my models, I keep weathering to
I would like
to thanks the following friend that help me one way or another to finish this
model: Fabian, Pablo, Victor, MrB, TK, Gareth, Mazlan, Mike, Walter, Han, Glenn
and many more.
