Douglas A-4Q Skyhawk. Airfix 1:72 scale. Argentinian Naval Air force. La campaña militar para liberar las Malvinas 1982!
This is my second venture into the Skyhawk 1:72 realm from Airfix and again it is an Argentinian version from the Falklands conflict but this time in the more standard grey camouflage. I chose deck tan shade from the Vallejo paint range to depict the colour as opposed to satin light gull grey as it appeared to be closer to some of the photo references I have seen but who really knows!? Truth, as they say, is all shades of grey! Anyway, I particularly liked the markings on this aircraft which is why I chose the subject.
All of the information about this aircraft is identical to the previous version so I will just take you through the build instead.
