Armed with cannons, bombs and unguided missiles, the little A4 Skyhawks would skim across the rice paddies and hug the densely forested mountains of Vietnam in the early days of the Vietnam war of the 1960s. Against them ranged small arms fire, artillery, guided surface to air missiles and MiG’s of the North Vietnamese Air Force. Alongside the supersonic MiG-21 was the older subsonic MiG-17F. This aircraft, codenamed Fresco, was a very maneuverable opponent, and certainly a match for the Skyhawk. Between them, they formed the backbone of the air war over Vietnam.

Dogfight Fresco - Skyhawk
Perfekt, the fit accuracy is excellent. The construction is a lot of fun, the decals are perfect! What more do you want? A little. During the construction I used the cannons from Master at the Fresco and built for the A4 itself from brass pipe. Both cockpits received Eduard PE parts. I have rediscovered model making and are building models again for the first time since 1978. Of course, a lot has happened since then - now I have an airbrush and other tools, but sometimes, I build a vintage kit like I did back then. Greetings from Germany, Andreas Colombo
