Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Douglas A-4 C Skyhawk – #148566, VA-144 “Roadrunners,” USS Kittyhawk, U.S. Navy, 1960s

1:72 Scale.  Length: 6.75".  Width: 4.75"



US Navy A-4C Skyhawk #148566 had a short but busy career. In October 1961 the aircraft was assigned to VA-22 as NE-310 until 1963 when it became NE-230. For a short period in 1965 it was assigned to Naval Air Station Atsugi, Japan as 8A-xx and later that year was re-assigned to the VA-144 “Roadrunners” as NH-302, operating from the USS Kitty Hawk until 1967 when it once again was sent to NAS Atsugi, Japan with an 8A-xx number. Shortly thereafter the aircraft was assigned to VA-34 “Blue Blasters” as AK-314. On November 7, 1967 this aircraft was shot down by North Vietnamese Army (NVA) anti-aircraft artillery (AAA) and the pilot was rescued.

The Douglas A-4 Skyhawk was a carrier capable light-attack bomber designed for the US Navy and Marine Corp. First flown in June 1954, the A-4s combat career began with carrier-launched raids over North Vietnam in 1964. The Navy began removing A-4's from its front-line squadrons in 1967, with the last one retired in 1975. The Marine Corps retired the Skyhawk in June, 1994.
