Halcon Del Cielo _ A-4P Skyhawk by DingoPatagonico Halcon Del Cielo _ A-4P Skyhawk by DingoPatagonico
A-4P Skyhawk C-240, Fuerza Aérea Argentina, based in Rio Gallegos in 1982 during the Malvinas War with the United Kingdom. Altought my oily paint gime me several troubles at the begun, i am mega happy with the result!!! infact the paint looked very worn even during the war in some planes, and a lot more after it , ALMOST 40% of the plane was without paint in the last years of service. Was retired in 1991

During the war, 10 A-4P was lost. The C-240 survived to the war and is actually in the FAA Museum in Morón ( [link] ) and LOT of years ago, i get photos with it! XD [link] XD destiny?

notized the GRUPO 5 DE CAZA shield in the nose

Here the A-4P is in one of the usual "anti-ship" configurations of the war, armed with a single Mk 17 bomb of 500 kgs and the obligatory GIANTIC EXTRA FUEL TANKS , plus the useless colt 20 mm cannons that never worked well and was reeplaced after the war by the DEFA of 30 mm

the REAL damage caused by the argentine armed forces just will be know 90 years after the end of the war ( o sea el 14 de junio de 2072 ) caused by a military secret act. Usual in the british goverments when the things gone bad, even if they won

btw AIRFIX ROCKS
:hug: to airfix
XD


:salute: A-4P

Really like the angle of your shot for the A-4P - really shows off the great lines of the A-4!
