|Stearman N2S-3 Kaydet 1/48 Die Cast Model|
Recall Aircraft 310
More than 9,750 Model 75 Stearman biplane trainers were built by Boeing during the 1930s and '40s, serving throughout World War II and beyond.
Distinctively painted "Recall" planes, wearing bright eye-catching schemes, were used at WWII Navy training bases to "recall" training aircraft, which did not have radios, to return to base. This 1/48 scale, die cast Hobby Master model of one such plane features open tandem cockpits with clear windscreens, flight controls, and a removable pilot figure; wings with simulated fabric covering, visible ribs, and real wire rigging; a detailed Continental R-680-17 radial engine with a rotating propeller; prototypically canted landing gear; and authentic markings. Measures approximately 6" long with an 8" wingspan and arrives ready to display on the included stand.
