The A4-B was the second variant of the Skyhawk and one of the first to see combat in the skies over Vietnam, where it was involved in the early stages of the conflict, with later version serving throughout the campaign.  Due to its small size, the A4 was able to operate off the smaller World War Two era Essex Class carriers, but it could still carry a useful payload to its target.

Paint Scheme - Douglas A-4B Skyhawk, VA-95, 'Green Lizards', USS Intrepid, 1966

A little gem of a kit. Highly recommended

My first 'modern' Airfix jet and an absolute beauty. The overall fit was terrific and the kit options (open canopy/airbrakes deployed/open slats) are nice to have. The detail on the compressor is lovely yet it will hardly be seen when you build it. Really nice touch by Airfix. I would have liked some more stores to hang on it but doesn't take away from what is the one of the best value-for-money, detailed and fun kits i've built in ages.

Terrific Little Kit

This is a very good representation of the A4 with some nice features for a series 3 kit. The leading edge slats and air brake options add interest though there are some minor issues. The gateways are fairly large and require very careful cleanup on the leading edges of the wings and tail to avoid unsightly bumps or dents. Also the glare shield decal captures the shape beautifully but the pitot tube is moulded on the fuselage so some cutting is needed to fit it around the probe. Even so I hghly recommend it, though the Skyhawk can carry a lot more stores than are provided (6 bombs per pylon) so there are plenty of options for embellishment.
