VF-43 A-4

Accepted my first and only commission build in the spring and finally got it wrapped up.  It's for a former coworker who flew with VF-43. This is the plane that had his name on it and it took 3 separate decal sheets to piece together the markings I needed.  I forgot how much I absolutely hate working in 1/48.  Building for money kinda took the fun out of it, so I dont think I'll be doing it again.  Anyway, here she is and now I can get back to the one true scale.

I'm shopping around for a 1/32 jet.  I'm bouncing between the Italeri F-104, Trumpy A-6, and Trumpy F-14

Looks amazing! Good work as usual.

go with whatever jet floats your boat the most, maybe consider a Tamiya? Fun to build with minimal issues, although, I am building an old Hasegawa 1/32 Skyhawk, that was a nice easy build. All I added was a pilot in a seat, and a pair of rein Defa cannons. sometime old kits build nice too.

Looks great. Always think the A4 looks a bit 'weird' as a two seater.

If you're looking for a great jet kit then as 1to1 says you can't beat Tamiya for a pleasant build. Their F16s are nice to build and great looking.

Great build, painting and very dynamic setting with the blurry underground, nice, but I have to agree with Gus, the two seater looks wrong with the second guy sitting so close to the tail in such a small frame.

It's funny, I'm the exact opposite.   I prefer the two seater but my dad  flew two seat A-4s so that's how I've always seen them and why I have q connection to them.
