Peter Crimmin I come across an article which states that this kit is a re-release of the ESCI/Scalecraft A-4 E/F kit with modifications for A-4 M/N
(link - a4skyhawk.org/content/modelers-hangar-bay)
there for if the article is right and the dates on one or both kits are wrong. He states ESCI/Scalecraft A-4 E/F kit come out in 1983. As I have the A-4 M/N #4016 kit in my stash I double check to see if there is a date to found on the kit but unfortunately not.
H K This seems to be a well researched article. I would say feel free to correct everything.

Peter Crimmin Yes H K it does look like a creditable source indeed and although I have searched for release date I was unable to find it. I did update the colour scheme /decals while I had the instruction sheet out. I was curious to see what year ESCI Kit #4015 was release which just so happen to be 1983, so I've taken the liberty to best guess that this kit was also released in that year.

H K The internet is an interesting place. It is often easier to find information on 60`s kits than on 80`s ones. My father had a great collection of old catalogues from his visits to the Nuremberg toy fare. Unfortunately it was lost when they moved.
