Hasegawa Aircraft 1/48 A4M USMC Attacker Kit
The A-4M was developed as a stopgap next-generation ground support aircraft to replace the U.S. Marine Corp's aging A-4, with the first production aircraft flying in April 1970. Fitted with the powerful J52-P-408A engine, the aircraft was capable of increased ordnance loads. The aircraft was visibly distinguishable from the older A-4 by its squared-off rudder, and also by the addition on later models of rudder-mounted RHAWS rear-warning radar.
