Christian Lehmann added the Airfix Douglas A-4B/4P Skyhawk (1:72) to his stash.
23. October 2012 at 20:00:19 Share
Bill Gilman This is a sweet little kit, you will love it!
23. October 2012 at 22:58:02
Christian Lehmann I have the same impression. Looks nice in the box. The panellines seem to be a little bit deep but they are very fine. My first Airfix kit after approx.30 years. Something to build out of the box.
24. October 2012 at 05:55:09
Christian Lehmann Does somebody know the difference between the A-4P and A-4Q used by the argentine navy? According to wikipedia the A-4Q has another engine. Can this be seen at the model for example because of another nozzle?
Have there been other differences or could this airfix kit also be used as an A-4Q by using aztec decals?
31. October 2012 at 19:02:36
Bill Gilman This was discussed over on Britmodeller - can you search over there?
31. October 2012 at 20:59:38
Christian Lehmann A link would be helpful.
Btw. How are you? Did you have trouble with Sandy?
31. October 2012 at 21:11:04
Bill Gilman Here is an A-4Q made from the new Airfix kit by Redboost (Libor):

britmodeller.com/forums/inde..20&hl=%2Ba-4q+%2Bskyhawk

I can't find the post where they talked about the different engine nozzle...but I know I read it!

No damage from Sandy, we're up on the shore of Lake Ontario and most of the damage is in New Jersey and NYC. We had several inches of rain and 65 MPH winds though. Lots of branches down and a few trees, but no power loss.
1. November 2012 at 00:14:26
Jamie Anderson not sure on the diffrence i think the P was used by the air force and the Q by the navy but remember the skyhawk was built to as a naval aircraft to begin with
1. November 2012 at 00:40:19
Bill Gilman This page highlights the differences between various Skyhawk marks:

cybermodeler.com/aircraft/a-4/scooter04.shtml

All P marks were remanufactured B airframes. All Q marks were remanufactured C airframes. All of these had Wright J65 engines, but with different versions. I haven't found any specific references about the exhaust, which would be the only visible part of the engine.
1. November 2012 at 02:21:01
Christian Lehmann Thanks Jami and Bill.
@ Bill: Glad to hear that you had no problems by the storm
1. November 2012 at 11:39:54
Christian Lehmann A collegue of the modelling club told me yesterday that the C (Q) have a longer nose cone than the B (P). The reason should have been the need of space for more avionics.
16. November 2012 at 21:26:55
Bill Gilman This was discussed recently on the Tailhook Topics Blog - some have complained that the Airfix kit is too short, but it's because of the shorter nose. You can check it out here:

tailspintopics.blogspot.com/
16. November 2012 at 21:31:55
Christian Lehmann Thank´s Bill. So the length is correct for a B. The rest is rivet counting at it´s best ( from my point of view) because the kit can clearly been identified as an A-4 :)
Btw: Freightdog offers a kit that includes the A-4C nose cone..

Christian Lehmann Hi Jamie, how was the fit?
31. October 2012 at 21:45:34
Jamie Anderson The kit went together without a problem a true joy to build
31. October 2012 at 22:43:42
Christian Lehmann Thanks for this statement. What version did you build?
1. November 2012 at 11:37:35
Jamie Anderson did mine as the A-4P to match my Argentinian super etendard
1. November 2012 at 13:19:05
Christian Lehmann This is my intention too. I also built one argentine Super Entendard. You can find pics in my gallery. I am thinking about to build an A-4Q by using this kit. But I am a little bit unsure about the differences. According to Wikipedia it is only the engine which might not be visible on the build model. Do you know more?
1. November 2012 at 13:35:34
Jamie Anderson The skyhawk did have an engine change but but this was for skyhawks A-4E and newer the only changes would be in the color scheme the diffrent variants are from the same A-4B airframe the only possible diffrence on the Q would be an arrestor hook and catapult holders
1. November 2012 at 14:03:41
Christian Lehmann Many thank´s for this clarification. So this parts should be inside the kit because the other possible version is a US navy plane.
1. November 2012 at 14:17:54
Jamie Anderson they should be there any idea what colors you are going to go with

Bill Gilman Now this is a sweet little kit. Very nice work by Airfix! If they keep this up, the "premium" model companies should be worried!

One thing, though - they need to make the panel lines for the flaps and rudder a bit wider and deeper than the other lines. Overall, the panel lines are just right for this scale, really well done. It gets said all the time, but Airfix really do get better with each new release!

Urban Gardini A bit of Airfix collector eh?
19. July 2012 at 16:11:01
Jörgen Kjelsmark No,just like their new moulds,and I don´t have a decent A-4 in my collection
19. July 2012 at 16:15:43
Urban Gardini I've got two on order. I agree on their new moulds, they've upp their quaility a fair bit since Hornby took over the rudder.
19. July 2012 at 16:32:03
Bill Gilman Agree, it's nice to see each new release from Airfix get better and better. Plus, the prices are quite a new value! This new Skyhawk looks quite nice, I suppose I'll have to add one to my stash! I don't have any early Scooters, so there you go!
19. July 2012 at 19:02:08
Urban Gardini You can never have too many kits!
19. July 2012 at 19:09:41
Jamie Anderson Looking forward to having my own skyhawk maybe do the A-4P version
