Eduard has added to it's line of Super 44 aircraft model kits with a 'new boxing' of an 1/144th scale A-4 F Skyhawk. This re-release of the Platz kit from 2009 comes in a bag with the addition of photo-etch, a decal sheet with markings for four aircraft, and wheel and canopy self-adhesive masks. Alert readers may remember an earlier review (Academy's B-1B) and my inability to remember where I had stashed the canopy masks for that kit. Hopefully that won't be a problem here.

  • Product/Stock#:
    • kit - 4466
    • photo etch - 144010
    • metal landing gear - 14432
  • MSRP:
    • kit - $10.36
    • photo etch - $8.76
    • metal landing gear - $11.95

The pre-painted photo-etch stuff is mostly bits for the cockpit (seat belts, ejection handles, cockpit tub, instrument panel, etc.) but there are also some small detail parts (wheel wells, launch bridle hooks, etc.) for the Skyhawk. Those wheel wells are a godsend as the plastic parts have zero in the way of molded detail.
