Product Description

Hobby Master
A-4C Skyhawk HA1423 “148566,” VA-144 “Roadrunners,”
USS Kity Hawk, 1960s
Item: HA1423
Hobby Master Prefinished die cast model

Designed to replace the Douglas AD-1 Skyraider the Skyhawk first flew in 1954. Its small
size was a radical departure from the normal “Big” thinking of the time. The USN first took
delivery in late 1956 with the USMC receiving theirs 3 months later. Over the years many
nicknames were used, “Tinker Toy”, “Heinemann’s Hotrod” (the designer was Ed
Heinemann), with the E and F models labeled the “Camel” because of the electronics
hump along the dorsal. Probably the most well known nickname used for the 2,960 A-4’s
that were produced is “Scooter”.



Douglas A-4C Skyhawk 148566 had a short but busy career. In October 1961 the aircraft
was first assigned to VA-22 as NE-310 until 1963 when it became NE-230. For a short
period in 1965 the aircraft was assigned to NAS Atsugi, Japan as 8A-xx and later that
year was re-assigned to VA-144 “Roadrunners” as NH-302 operating from the USS Kitty
Hawk until part way through 1967 it once again went to NAS Atsugi, Japan with an 8A-xx
number and shortly there after was assigned to VA-34 “Blue Blasters” as AK-314. On
November 7, 1967 this aircraft was lost to NVA AAA and the pilot was rescued.
