Interesting...looks like they give you the "red" for the insides of the flaps/slats as decals. Kudos to Hasegawa on giving us natiional insignia cut out for the speed breaks and pylons.

Ironicly, i just decaled up a Hase A-4F (first release) with VA-55 markings. For those interested, VA-55 flew A-4Fs with a few extra avionics and antennas to do SAM supression missions in Nam, with markings exactly like what you get in the box. From most pictures ive seen, they were loaded with a center drop tank, 2 shrikes (inner pylon), and a rockeye on each outer pylon.
If you have FAOW book on the A-4 (newer series) the color section toward the front has a picture of the plane hasegawa gives you decals for.

I have the old "Marine" version of this kit from Hasegawa, but these decals look much more colourful. Maybe one of each is the solution.

Thanks for the info, Andy #1 and Andy #2
