Looking for A-4e 1/48 decals
Posted by waikong on Sunday, December 6, 2020 9:57 AM

So, wanted to start a build of my A-4e, promodeler kit, molds from Hasgawa with markings of Sen McCain when he was shot down in Vietnam. You would think there would be after market decals for this famous episode. But fruitless search so far, if anyone out there knows who makes some, would appreciate it. Thanks.

Hello!

Did you do the research on how the plane is supposed to look like? If so, you might want to draw up a set of decals, and custom-print them. That's what I did working on my Whale. I think I could help you with it. It's best to start with a scan of a decal sheet of an aircraft as close as it gets to what you're aiming for (from the same squadron, for example).

Hope it helps, have a nice day

All comments and critique welcomed. Thanks for your honest opinions!

Yes. Thanks. That was my plan B, but being lazy, rather go with the easier route. I probably have enough spare decals to do maybe 60%, then will need to print the rest. You know how sometimes you start a project, oob, simple, and next thing you know, its sucked months of your time! But its all fun right? :)
