|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.
