Anyone else noticed but the canopy shape on the prototype looks to me to be the 2 seat version TA-4?
After a few years working around them you can't help but pick it. Will be great as the TA-4 has a longer nose than the single seater. Bring it on, I want one!!!!

Hmmm, now that you mention it, I think you're right. Good eye. I don't think it was intended though.

If it is the TA-4J, then it won't have the hump..

Yep, none of the T-birds had humps. Also needs some external fuel tanks. Either a 300gal under each wing would make great landing skids or a 400gal centreline would make a good skid as well as somewhere to hold for launching.

Actually the full size bird was only 28 inches longer - once scaled down it would hardly be noticable. Still I'm glad to see an A-4. Maybe they should just include a single and a dual seat canopy in the box. And the avionics hump as well - that could be trimmed down to make the OA-4M or Argintina's OA-4F (bought from surplus OA-4M's)

The horizontal stab needs to come forward and up a little.
