Default 1/48 Hasegawa OA-4M

Okay, here we go. Let's see if I can finish the project before the GB deadline. Kit preview

Just because I had the parts and it was easy to do, I sanded off the side intakes and replaced them with Hasegawa parts.

After


I also added a Hasegawa chaff bucket to the tail. (OA-4Ms could carry 3 of them. The other 2 went beside the forward end of the tailhook.)


The Monogram OA-4M molds are dated "1985". (The A-4E/F molds are even older.) As expected, I need to fill ejection pin marks and use styrene spacers to adjust fit in some places.


The gaps in the slat area were filled as was the incorrect trim tab on the starboard aileron.


Here it is mocked up -
