First introduced in 1946, the A-1 Skyraiders frontline career as the U.S. Navys last piston-engined attack aircraft continued for thirty years until its 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 aircrafts 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.
