1/48 A-4E/F Skyhawk with RNZAF Decals

Model Dim.: 26 cm

The A-4 owes its origins to a desire expressed by the US Navy for a replacement of the A-1 Skyraider. The engineering design genius Ed Heinemann created a super lightweight and simple airplane which was pressed into service on American aircraft carriers in 1956. The E (of which 499 were made) and F (of which 147 were made) represent the first real upgrade in airplanes, with a more potent engine, two extra mooring towers for cargo (for a total of five) and improved avionics. They were used extensively, and with excellent results, during Americas war in Vietnam.
