Allen Berry (Tomcat31) has sent us some pictures of his A-1J Skyraider model. It''s the Tamiya 1/48 kit and while it was built out of the box it resulted into quite an impressive model.

Looks great Allen,
I use to love watching the Spads during flight ops taking off, especially at night.
Of course ours were in proper colors.

Excellent build. I really like this aircraft. I don't know why, but I do. You really made it come to life.
