    It's my own design--based it on the one hanging in the lobby of the National Museum of Naval Aviation. build is a bit sloppy--my arthritis is kicking up again and my fingers get pretty clumsy at times. The nose door's on the wrong side and it still needs a few details, like hook and IFR probe. It'll get there eventually, though.

    Beautiful model. Looks like it has some hours in the build. Anyone know of a detailed cardmodel of the A-4?

    Actually--the model is quite simple. The fuselage consistes of six parts, including the canopy and tailpipe. The wing and tail surfaces are single pieces. The landing gear is the most complex part of the model, due to
    the doors and fairings. Took me about two hours to throw that model together using white glue and CA. (I'm not a patient builder) I was mainly checking for fit, errors and alignment.

    P-Models has two versions of the A4. Detailed? at least a lot of small parts, no interior. Scale I beleive is 1/50. I have purchased it but it is only on the hard drive. This is a down load pdf format plane. This A4 has my attention. I think it is a beautiful plane and this resurrects the thread of detailed and boring (P-model) vs simplified but satisfying. I lean toward the latter in this case.

    I as well say "way to go Rob" I'll be having at this one.
