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.
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. Skill Level 2 Scale: 1/48 Length: 13" Wingspan: 14-5/8" Parts: 167
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. Decals to build any one of the four aircraft from the Blue Angels team of 1978 or A-4E Skyhawk, BUNO, 149996, pilot LCDR John S. McCain, VA-45 Klansmen, USS Forrestal, June 1967. 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. VA 85 Black Falcons, U.S.S. Forrestal, 1978 and 2. VA 35 Panthers, U.S.S. Nimitz. Skill Level 2 Scale: 1/48 Length: 13-3/4" Wingspan: 13-3/8" Parts: 192
The B-1B Lancer is the largest free world aircraft yet built to use a variable-geometry, or movable wing, which is designed to provide maximum aircraft performance. With the wings fully swept forward, wing span measures 136 feet 8-1/2 inches. Sweeping the wings back allows the bomber to streak through the skies at 1,450 mph, or Mach 1.4, to deliver up to 115,000 lbs. of bombs, 32 AGM-69 SRAM missiles, or 32 of the new AGM-86 B cruise missiles. With the retirement of the EF-111 Raven in 1998 and the F-14 Tomcat in 2006, the B-1B is the last variable wing aircraft remaining in U.S. military inventory. New technology has given the B-1B a radar profile only one hundredth that of the larger B-52, allowing it to sneak under enemy radar beams, hugging the ground under the control of an automatic terrain avoidance guidance system. The B-1B is well designed for survivability and operational efficiency. It can withstand the effects of a nearby nuclear blast and take-off quickly, even if under attack. Detailed cockpit, main landing gear and nose radar plus movable swing wings and tail planes. Optional open or closed bomb bay doors with 16 AGM-69A SRAM missiles on rotary launchers. Authentic decal markings for B-1B Lancer, 85-0080 (NO. 40) Lady of the Night, 28th Bombardment Wing, Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota and B-1B Lancer, 85-0090 (NO. 50) Hellcat, 28th Bombardment Squadron 7th Bomb Wing, US Air Combat Command Dyess AFB, Texas. Molded in light gray and clear with rubber tires. Skill Level 3 Scale: 1/48 Length: 36" Wingspan: 33" Parts: 238
The US Air Forceâs only serving variable-sweep wing aircraft is the B-1 Lancer bomber. The futuristic design was originally conceived in order to create a long-range, low-level, supersonic penetrator bomber that could deliver nuclear weapons. Built by Rockwell, the B-1B Lancer appeared in 1986, and it has now been converted to conventional bomber missions. The âBoneâ (the name is taken from its designation B-One) is a long-time supporter of missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since 2003, the B-1B has helped deliver conventional bombs against targets in Iraq. A typical bomb load includes the GBU-31 Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM), a weapon that was heavily used in Iraq. Indeed, the B-1B was used on April 7, 2003 in an attempt to bomb Saddam Hussein and his two sons into oblivion. At the height of Operation Iraqi Freedom, a B-1 was permanently on station to provide a rapid precision bombardment capability. Today a total of 67 Lancers remain in service. Dragon Warbirds has produced a 1/400 scale model of this advanced bomber. This model is a brand new tooling, with the fuselage made of die-cast metal. The fuselage has then been mated to the plastic injection-molded wings and landing gear. Of interest, the variable-sweep wings are set in their rearmost âsweptâ position for high-speed flight. In keeping with is high-speed configuration, the bomb bay is depicted as closed to preserve the sleek aerodynamics of this bomber. The lines and details of the B-1B Lancer are accurately replicated. As the Dragon Warbirds range experiences a resurgence, this new offering is a dynamic and impressive model well worth adding to collections.

The B-2 bomber was developed as a successor to the outdated B-52 and as an alternative to the unfavorable B-1 bomber. A special, absorbing coating renders the Stealth bomber invisible to radar. The first flight took place at the Edwards AFB on 17.7.1989. Four General Electric F 118-GE 100 engines give the B-2 a maximum speed of 764 km/h at a service altitude in excess of 15,000 meters. Its range when fully laden is 10.00 km, or about 19,000 km with air refuelling.
The Convair B-58 Hustler is one of the most unique aircraft in military service. Not only is it strikingly different in appearance, but it is the fastest bomber in the Strategic Air Command history. It set several international speed records, some still standing today. "Ginger", was one of the operational test vehicles, based at Edwards Air Force Base, California. On October 15, 1959, it became the first plane to sustain Mach 2 flight, flying between Seattle, Washington and Carswell AFB, Texas, in 70 minutes, averaging nearly 1,320 mph. In October 1963, "Greased Lightning", flew from Tokyo to London in 8 hours, 35 minutes, averaging 938 mph. However, on the last leg, one of the afterburners failed, reducing its overall speed. It is one of the few surviving Hustlers, and is now on display at the SAC Museum in Ashland, Nebraska. Skill Level 2 Scale: 1/48 Length: 26-1/16" Wingspan: 14" Parts: 125

As well as the famous C-130 Hercules, Lockheed Martin also built the much larger C-5 Galaxy. As one of the largest military aircraft in the world, this American strategic transport aircraft is capable of intercontinental flight. Its design features high wings and a T-tail. The US Air Force (USAF) has operated the C-5A Galaxy since 1969, with the modernized C-5B appearing in 1986. A total of 131 aircraft were built, of which around 33 remain in active service. The Galaxyâs cavernous interior is accessed via a large nose hatch or from a rear ramp, with the body able to contain 880mÂł of cargo. However, to better transport large-sized cargo, two aircraft were especially modified by removing the rear passenger compartment floor and splitting the rear cargo door in the middle. These so-called C-5C versions are able to accommodate odd-sized loads such as satellites for NASA. These two USAF C-5C Galaxy aircraft are based at Travis Air Force Base in California at the disposal of NASA. Dragon Warbirds newest item shows one of these C-5C aircraft. It is finished in the colors and markings of the 22nd Airlift Wing. The die-cast model is beautifully finished with sharp panel lines and well-defined markings. For the ultimate transport aircraft, this C-5C model is hard to beat. Fully assembled Quality construction Highly detailed Display ready Accurate markings and insignia
