All through the Vietnam War, the U.S. Armed Forces lacked adequate close air support. Fairchild-Republic developed the A-10 Thunderbolt to remedy the situation. The A-10 can fly at altitudes under 1,000 feet (300 m) and 350 mph (560 km/h) speeds. The Thunderbolt's ability to fly "slow and low" makes it better suited for the ground-attack role, where small target detection often plays a part in a mission's success. Kit features easy, glue-free snap assembly, complemented by factory-decorated, painted plastic construction. Skill Level: 1 Scale: 1/100 Length: 6-3/8" Wingspan: 6-7/8" Parts: 31

Designed especially for close air support, the Warthog entered service in 1975. Literally built around the 30mm GAU-8 Gattling gun, the A-10 can also carry immense weapons loads under its wings and fuselage, including AGM 65 Maverick missiles. A highly survivable aircraft, the A-10 has redundant hydraulic systems backed up by manual systems; it can survive direct hits by armor piercing rounds. It flew 8,100 sorties during Desert Storm and has seen action in Afghanistan and was a key battlefield weapons system during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

The A-4 Skyhawk was designed as a small light weight jet attack aircraft capable of operating from aircraft carriers. The Skyhawk was used extensively during the war in Vietnam where it gained a reputation for being rugged and reliable. A-4s were also used by the Blue Angels flight demonstration team. The Blue Angles are well known the world over for their impressive performances of precision aerobatics.

This is a highly detailed 1/32 scale assembly and painting required plastic model kit of the Mitsubishi A6M Zero, a lightweight, carrier-based fighter aircraft employed by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service from 1940 to 1945. When the Zero was first introduced, it was the best carrier based fighter in the world and was universally feared and respected by Allied pilots. The Zero was fast and incredibly maneuverable, and in the hands of a capable pilot, it could out dogfight any fighter of the era. The Mitsubishi Zeros prowess as a dogfighter was best demonstrated by the legendary Japanese fighter ace Saburo Sakai on June 24, 1944 when his Zero managed to elude a squadron of 15 U.S. Navy F6F Hellcats and returned to base almost untouched. Thanks to the evolution of new tactics and techniques, Allied pilots were able to hold their own against the nimble Zero. With the introduction of more advanced F6F Hellcat and F4U Corsair later in the war, Allies finally have fighter aircrafts that could outclass the Zero in a turning dogfight. This finely detailed 1/32 scale model kit features the A6M2b Type 0 Model 21 variant, which had folding wingtips for service onboard aircraft carriers. The A6M2 Model 21 became the most produced Zero variant. This kit comes with parts to build a super detailed scale replica of the Nakajima Sakae type 12 engine, folding wingtips, metal parts for the landing gear assembly, retractable landing gears, movable rudder and flaps, 1 standing and 1 seating pilot figure, and specially designed box to allow storage of the assembled aircraft model.
The Douglas Skyraider was manufactured immediately after War World II. Despite its traditional piston motor, in an age when jets were spreading, the Skyraider had an extraordinary long career. It made its first flight in 1945 and it was retired from service only in 1975. It has participated to several conflicts, demonstrating its value in Korea and in Vietnam. Characterised by low speed manoeuvrability, it was able to transport impressive war cargos of over 3,500Kg. Perfect for ground attack missions, it was provided with robust armour to minimise fire damages from the enemy. France used more than 100 Skyraiders, many of which took part to the Algerian war, replacing the old T-6 Texan as insurgency aircraft and close support. Before going definitely out of service, several Skyraiders were sold to Air Forces of the former French Colonies, such as Chad and Gabon. 1/48 Scale. 9.5" Long. Complete with decals and instructions.
