Thanks everybody, awful kind of you. I did not expect it to take this long to build!
Good fun none the less

I used Gekko graphic decals. Very good, though I had some issues with some coming off when from tape being applied. Most likely operator error! The kit is Hasegawas A-4E/F. The gekko graphic decals come with all the info needed (what parts to use) to get the model to the specific Scooter variant you're depicting.

I also used Eduards zoom set for the cockpit and rbf tags. The intake plugs were aftermarket and look a lot better after adding a bit more detail to them. The rest of the plugs and covers are all scratch built.

Cheers :)

That looks great, I was always a big fan of the RNZAF Skyhawks

One hell of a mess
