The kit is is the Hasegawa A-4C kit with decals from Horizon ModelTech.  The aircraft featured is from the 143 Sqn of Tengah Airbase. 

Building the new Hasegawa Scooter kit is easy with all of the major assembly fitting well and requiring very little sanding or rework.  The resin needs a little test fitting before gluing into place.  The resin quality is good, most of them required a little sanding and some touch up.  

Paint was custom mixed to match to scale.  I was commissioned to built this kit for Achtung Japan Hobby as a sample kit for their new resin release which is TBA soon.
