Early Scooters

 

Well Steve Ginter has done it again if you are a scooter lover. He has now produced another in his series of aircraft books this one being Naval Fighters Number Forty-Nine Douglas A-4A/B Skyhawk in Navy Service. This will complement his other recent books, in the list at the end of this review, concerning the A-4E/F in both Navy and Marine Corps service.

 

As with the earlier book concerning the Skyhawk there are plenty of illustrations that are going to be useful to modelers as well as anyone interested in the Scooter. This book offers excellent coverage of the first Skyhawks as they went through development and added such items as the sugar-scoop over the exhaust. Excellent coverage is given to the test aircraft for the A-4D-1 (A-4A). The A-4D-2 (A-4B) test aircraft is also shown and the two most noticeable changes are mentioned. These are the refueling boom on the nose and the tadpole (inside-out rudder). There are some pictures of the A4D-2 prior to the addition of the refueling probe.

 

Following the format of his earlier books on the Skyhawk there are many illustrations, which come from the maintenance and NATOPS (Naval Aviation Training and Operational Procedures Standardized) manuals. However there are differences since this book contains painting diagrams for the standard markings applied to the aircraft. As with the E/F volume the standard aircraft characteristics information is provided. Therefore all the books are complementary and make a nice set of references on this particular aircraft. Between the various volumes that have been written so far concerning the Skyhawk a modeler should have a very good set of reference diagrams that can be used to build and detail these aircraft. Right now what I’m waiting on is the edition that will cover the Marine units, which operated the A and B models of the Skyhawk.

Also, as with the other books Ginter has written histories of the squadrons and various other units who operated these models of the Skyhawk. Some of theses squadrons, such as VA-15, continue today as Strike Fighter (VFA) squadrons. I must say this time there were some interesting units mentioned such as the Naval Parachute Facility and Naval Aircraft Torpedo Unit. Also, probably the most interesting fighter squadrons the Navy has had are covered. These are the anti-submarine fighter squadrons VSF-1 and VSF-3. Though their histories are short they are interesting. Another interesting topic in this volume is the development of the buddy stores refueling system. Again, some pictures of the system in development are provided. I hope that there is not only an A/B Marine volume coming soon but that we will see one on the C/L, M and the two seaters. At this point I must say that these books are extremely good and an excellent addition to any modelers library either as a general reference book or to use as guides to build Skyhawks.

Well After checking around I found some more information on the A-4’s so here is an updated list of some references on the Skyhawk.

A last note about the best source on Skyhawks, both the aircraft and squadrons, the most important source is the Skyhawk Association. They have a web site Skyhawk Association.org but they also have a discussion group for modelers interested in the A-4. It’s on Community Zero and you have to go through an administrator to gain access but it has just started up and has potential. If you check their web site you will see they actually refer you to help for modelers. This is one group that is modeler friendly. Anyone wanting to join the Skyhawk discussion group can contact me and we’ll get you started. Remember you can never have enough Skyhawks, and Skyhawks forever.
