Tamiya's 1/48 scale A1-H Skyraider is available online from Squadron
Her is one of my favourite
types: the Skyraider.
I started the conversion
around 4 years ago as a conversion of the superb 1/48 scale Tamiya kit. I
think in the case of this model the pictures will tell the story better
than many words.
I detailed the radar-operator's area from scratch adding P-80 seats from
True Details and used the typical AD-4W parts as radome, canopy, fins,
fixed slats from Esci.
More modification was needed
in the wheel bays area and for the landing gear. The bridle catapult hook
is mounted on the main landing legs, and the covers are slightly different
from a AD-4.
The model represented a
plane from VC-12 in 1951.
