First introduced in 1946, the A-1 Skyraider's frontline career as the U.S. Navy's last piston-engined attack aircraft continued for thirty years until it's final service providing close-air support and rescue helicopter escort during the Vietnam War. This kit depicts the most produced variant, the A-1H, and accurately reproduces the aircraft's robust form. Engine cowl flaps, wing flaps, and dive brakes may be posed in open or closed positions. Parts are included for ordnance such as 250lb bombs and 5-inch rockets to depict a fully-armed machine. One pilot figure and three marking options are also included.
