I received this awesome Skyraider kit in November of last year 2011 after a long anticipation.  Well, I finally had the courage of putting it together and here it is!

I chose to build a VNAF bird.  This A-1H belonged to 520th FS "Divine Panther" based in Can Tho (South Vietnam) circa mid 60's.  A dear friend of mine supplied with homemade decals for the Divine Panther logo on the cowling, and also the letter code, serial numbers and insignia.

Overall, the kit was smooth to build although the engine parts are kinda' confusing.  I wish ZM didn't pay too much attention on the interiors but instead give us weapons along with the kit because after the halves are glued together, you won't see anything anyhow.  

Hope you like this VNAF Skyraider!
