1/48 Hasegawa A-4M Brazilian Navy "15 years" Special Scheme
Posted by Grant Dalzell on Sunday, November 04, 2018 3:55 PM

Kit- Hasegawa 1/48 A-4M
Extras- Caracal Brazilian Navy (CD48070)

This has been on the back burner for months, I had so much grief with the decals, they were a nightmare, they wouldn't go down, and I put that much Mr Mark Softer on them that they really did melt and Mr Mark Softer leaves stains on paint. I was so close to painting another scheme, but I stuck at it and patched it up best I could.

Painted with Gunze, Tamiya, Vallejo acrylics, Vallejo Metal Color, Citadel, Flory Dark Dirt wash and Tamiya Lacquer Clear (LP-9)

Looks great to me. Looks like you made a fantastic recovery. Those “stains“are called Big Smile weathering

It's another beauty, Grant. Thanks for the post and photos. These little buggers looked altogether better, when done in interesting paint schemes.

I don't see any problems in the photos- beautiful work!!! I love these special paint schemes and you've done a great job on her- huge decals can be a real pain.

I'm a big Scooter fan and yours is a real work of art. If I remember correctly Brazil got about 70 A4 Mikes and a few TA4 Js, and parts. Their typical paint scheme is boring, but the special paint job you modeled is super. Do they actually have a carrier?

Looks great.  Nice markings.  I have a decal set for Brazilian p47s I've meaning to get to.  

Thanks,

John

I love those markings!  The model looks great and the weathering is nice and subtle!
