BRL72212 - RATO for A-4 Skyhawk for any Skyhawk kit

A simple set of four RATO tubes and exhausts to fit as indicated on the instruction sheet to the rear fuselage of your Skyhawk model. Nicely detailed and easy to attach, these will enhance your heavily loaded aeroplane, a they were apparently fitted to such service examples. Resin parts are very well cast.




BRL72211 - A-4C Conversion

...for the Airfix kit but may fit other manufacturers offerings.

This simple resin part will enable the modeller to convert the Airfix A-4B into the slightly longer-nosed 4C variant. Instructions are give about where to cut the parts and the conversion is enhanced with a small 30x25mm PE fret covering the modifications to the cockpit and a few exterior details, as well as a set of canopy hooks which will add those often-overlooked parts that are pretty obvious on most jet aircraft. The resin nose is beautifully cast and well designed to be removed from its casting block.



Both of the accessories are recommended to the Skyhawk modeller.

Thanks to Brengun for the review samples.
