Subject: TA-4J Skyhawk in U. S. Navy Adversary Paint Scheme

Kit: Hasegawa
Scale: 1/48th
Decals: Fightertown
Builder: Rich Van Zandt


This is Rich Van Zandt’s eighteenth build of this series.  The model was built basically out of the box, except that the ejection seats were replaced with Cutting Edge Seats, and the TACTS pod came from Hasegawa’s weapons set.  The kit was rescribed and drilled. 

Mr. Color paints were used, and the wash was made with artist’s oils.  The walkways were masked and painted, then the camouflage pattern was done freehand
