|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."

Measures 9¾" long with a 12½" wingspan; 130 parts, skill level 2.
