Encouraged by the extremely positive reception of the Hind Special, we add the second volume to the Aces High Monographic Series. This issue is devoted to modelling the famous A-4 Skyhawk which entered service 65 years ago but still remains in limited use.
Detailed articles prepared by our editor Daniel Zamarbide will guide you through the processes of construction, painting and weathering of 3 variants of the ‘Scooter’, finished in 3 significantly different liveries.
Each of them is complemented by an article discussing the service of the particular variant with the chosen operator, illustrated with several quality photos.

Colour profiles created by renowned British artist Chris Sandham-Bailey are also included.

AK Interactive's new 3G (Third Generation) acrylic paints for aircraft...
AK continues to evolve in its endeavour to offer the best paints on the market, adapting and improving all the acrylic paints and sets in the current catalogue to turn them into 3rd Generation acrylics which are perfect both for brush and airbrush (when diluted) application without losing their opacity and with the best fluidity. AK Interactive's 3rd Generation acrylics are simply the most advanced acrylic formula in the market.
A model aircraft reflects less light than an actual full-size aircraft; this means the colour applied to the model must be of a lighter shade to look the same as the full-sized version. If the same colour tones were applied to each, the model would appear darker as it reflects less light.
