Hello

Trying to build a AD-4N using the Tamiya kit as a starting point.

Assuming I deal with the armor, air-brakes (or not if I go with an AD-4Q), install the rear crew access door and window and replace the various antennae is there anything else I am missing?

Thanks,
Keith

You'll need to change the main wing pylons to the earlier -4 type and (depending on the airframe) replace the 12 wing pylons with earlier versions as well. Also, if you are doing a -4N it would have deicers, a -4Q would not.

the -4N has a door and window(s?) for the crewman, plus a dorsal cooling air intake.

want the dope on the variations of the "SPAD" go to
http://www.AeroResearchCDss.com and order a copy of Jay Sherlock's "Modeller's Guide to the Skyraider". Everything you need to know to modify the available kits to whatever variation you little heart desires.
