TA4-J Skyhawk Remake

Hi to all
for my next build i have decided to remake & recolor this old IAFM .
this is something i allways wanted to do but wasent able to do untill now
beacase my photoshop skills were very por untill recently.
some twenty odd years ago when i was in the army as a skyhawk electrician i had the chance to fly one of these planes as a bonus
in the rear seat (no i"m not a pilot) so this model will be a tribute to that plane (tail no 712).
1st pic -the original model built avery long time ago

the original one did not have a cockpit and was 1:50 scale
i enlarged it to 1:32 scale and added the cockpits from modelarts A4N
so the net pic are of that.

next is the front & nose .
i added alot of panels inlet openings and decals that were missing in the original model
based on personal pictures i had from my service time in the blok
and other material i got from the net.
the colors are alittle diffrent from the A4N but i think they resemble
the plane & the photeg i have alot more ....

Nice work Moshe. I also worked from 1974 until 1982 on 544 and 712 as part of the armament ground crew and started building this kit a few years ago.
I got as far as finishing the fuselage, when ModelArt's A-4N landed on my computer and I abandoned this one :D

Looks great! Doing or re-doing this kit is on the list for things to build in the future. You've exceeded my imagination on how to do it, thanks!
