Hi everyone. I finally finished the Skyhawk. This is the 1/48 scale Skyhawk from Hasegawa. If you would like to read more details about the build you can go to the MOM[July] thread. Hope you like it, Wingman out.

Hi Michael!

You did a fantastic job on your Skyhawk model!

The pictures are fantastic too! May I ask you the permission to use them for a photo feature? Maybe you have some more? The last one in ambient light is very nice!

I like it.

If I could pick one aircraft to jetset around in, this would be it. I think you did a wonderful job. If I don't finish one for JULY'S MOM....

OMG I haven't even started one for July's MOM. Spending way too much time on the forums.

Thanks for all the kind comments guys. My favorite photo is the one that's shot from the side. I love the lines on this aircraft. I can't imagine trying to land one of these things on a carrier with such a tall landing gear. A Stuka in the snow is going to be next for me, thanks for looking, Wingman out.

Looks really nice wingman! One of my favorite planes, and you did a great job on it.

You probably have the info in a different post, but did you use an aftermarket seat? It looks good!

Hi Glamdring. Thanks for the nice comment. I did use an Aires resin cockpit set. It was a bugger getting to fit the wheel well with the bottom of the cockpit tub and getting it to line up right with the fuselage. There is some more detail about the build on the MOM[July] thread. Thanks for looking, Wingma out.

Thanks guys. It's nice being back building after the move to the new house. There's nothing like staying up late on the weekends with some good talk radio working on your model. Jim, were you building Hasegawa's version of the Scooter? Thanks for the kind words guys, thanks for looking, Wingman out.

Yes I have an E/F waiting on the shelf and an "M" in the works. I got distracted by a ship model that I was working on.
