Williamson & Savoca. Located along the banks of the St. Johns River in Florida, Naval Air Station Jacksonville has developed a rich history since it was commissioned on October 15, 1940. Filled with rare and archival photographs, this volume examines that station's long service, from its initial purpose conducting primary and seaplane training to its expansion training pilots on nearly every type of aircraft the Navy has flown and its role today as a master anti-submarine base. 128 pages, approximately 200 B&W photographs, 6½"x 9¼", softcover.
|AD-5 Skyraider 1/48 Kit |
The tough and versatile Douglas A-1 Skyraider, which saw service between the late 1940s and early 1970s, was one of the final piston-powered, prop-driven attack planes produced before the dawn of the "jet age."
A replica of an AD-5 variant- which featured a cockpit where the pilot and co-pilot sat side-by-side - operated by the U.S. Marine Corps' VMA-332 "Polka-dots" in the 1950s, this 1/48 scale, plastic kit features textured surfaces; a well-appointed cockpit with a glazed canopy; an R-3350-26WA radial engine with a four-blade propeller; folding wings with separate flaps; wing-mounted ordnance and 20mm M2 cannons; optional-position landing gear; authentic markings, including the unit's polka dots on the tail and wings; three crew figures; and more. Measures 9¾" long with a 12½" wingspan; 130 parts, skill level 2.
