MAW-Decals has released another nice resin conversion, this time for the Hasegawa 1/48 A-4C Skyhawk kit. This two-piece conversion backdates the Hasegawa kit with the shorter B-nose as well as the different main instrument panel found in the earlier Skyhawk.
Molded in white resin, this pair resin parts are designed to fit the Hasegawa kit and may work with other 1/48 scale early Skyhawk kits - you're on your own to adapt this set for non-Hasegawa applications. What's more, this is a very reasonably-priced update at under $5 USD, so you can backdate a Skyhawk inexpensively.

My sincere thanks to MAW-Decals Decals for this review sample!
