H*ll no !

1:72 Waaayyyy to small for me. Few years ago I built the 1:48 Occidental Gina just after it came out...... It is approximately 65% filler/30% bad language !

I'll leave leave this one to you  :thumbsup: Go for it.

Well I guess that US Army would load the simple and small Gina with tons of avionics, eventualy :thumbsup: I will consider A-4M as a modification model.

It will have a pair of 20mm guns, like German version.

Almost looks like an A-7 with that hump, looking good Carlos!
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Interesting project Ysi - right up my street!

Wen't they 30mm DEFAs?

Good call on the avionics hump mate :)

Thanks to all of you!

BTW: I am thinking to equip this plane with two Mavericks. Would it need any bit to use them properly? I mean designators, rangefinders or the like.

A plane preferebly devoted to close support, flying low, would need a jammer?

Thanks,
Carlos.

PD: the nose will be configured as the nose of a Skyhawk A-4M
