Overview: Skill Level 2, Scale: 1/48, Parts: 67. Corsair II aircraft were developed during the bloodiest days of the Vietnam War. Once deployed, they served as close air support aircraft.
WWII USAAF medium bomber one of the most widely used twin-engine bombers employed during the war. Contains Nose casing with 8 MGs, detailed surfaces with flush metal joints, interior with ammunition chests and bomb racks, landing gear, cockpit with instrument panel, top and tail MG turrets, movable propeller, twin radial engines, crew figures and weighted tires. Decals and markings for two variants from the 345th Bomb Group, the Air Apaches: Jaunty Jo, 192, 430092, 12, Finito, Benitohirohito, plus four star insignias, one woman, two Indian Chiefs, and one wing insignia.
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
They say that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, and A-10 pilots think their aircraft is the homecoming queen. But, this beauty packs a mean punch! Features: Easy snap-together construction, parts molded in color, special decal sheet with one set of authentic markings and a bonus set of custom graphics such as lightning bolts and shark jaws. Paint and glue not needed. Skill Level: 1 Scale: 1/72 Wingspan: 9-1/4" Length: 8-3/4" Parts: 36
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. Features: Detailed interior with seated pilot and boarding ladder, ECM pod, cluster bombs, napalm tanks, Maverick missiles and centerline drop tank, decals included for LET'S ROLL.

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. Flying in tight formation, these four outstanding U.S. Navy flyers captivate their audiences with breath-taking maneuvers. Open or closed canopy with detailed cockpit and pilot. Optional two external fuel tanks, center bomb pylon with six bombs and two wing mounted missiles.

Molded in light gray and clear. Skill Level 2 Scale: 1/48 Length: 10 7/8" Wingspan: 6 13/16" Parts: 83
The A-6 Intruder served the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Marine Corps from 1963 and 1997. The definitive A-6E was equipped with a Target Recognition and Attack Multi-Sensor (TRAM) system, which provided pinpoint accuracy in aerial attacks. Kit features a detailed cockpit with two crew figures, external armament (including Mark 20 "Rockeye" cluster bombs, Mark 82 "Snakeye" high-drag bombs, "Harpoon" anti-ship missiles and optional external fuel tanks), detailed landing gear and two decal marking options: 1.

N the summer of 1937 Japan started action against China and threw into the front a great number of the newest planes which Japan had created with their original ideas and technique. Concerning fighters in particular, Japan had abandoned biplane type which was counted as the common sense of the then world and already employed the Type 96 Carrier Fighter (96 Kansen) that Japan had produced on the basis of many pieces of new technique and ideas such as all-metal, internally braced low wing monoplane design and the engine cowling designed to reduce air resistance. 96 Kansens always successfully engaed with I-15 and I-16 fighters and SB-2 bombers of Russian make as well as Gladiator fighters of British make. The 96 Kansen appeared as a fighter having a speed as high as 450 km/h and superior maneuverability at the time when conventional fighters of Japan and other nations of the world had a maximum speed of 350 km/h, winning admiration in Japan and abroad. This overthrew the deepfooted view that foreign planes were superior to those of Japan. After the appearance of the 96 Kansen, the modernization of Japans aircraft industry was rapidly promoted and original planes came to be born.
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.
Imperial Japanese Navy lightweight fighter, model 32, variant with clipped non-folding wingtips. Kit has recessed panel lines, highly detailed cockpit, twin-row engine, segmented canopy and drop tank. Decals and painting reference for IJN aircraft.
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. Skill: 3
