Now Available in a wood model plane, handcrafted by Mastercraft.The Douglas A-1 (formerly AD) Skyraider was a U.S. single-seat attack bomber of the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s. A propeller-driven anachronism in the jet age.
Guns: 4 × 20 mm (0.787 in) cannon
Other: Up to 8,000 lb (3,600 kg) of ordnance on 15 external hardpoints including bombs, torpedoes, mine dispensers, unguided rockets, or gun pods
The A-1 was originally designed to meet World War II requirements for a carrier-based, single-place, long-range, high performance dive-/torpedo bomber. The A-1E Skyraider is replicated in this detailed hand-carved mahogany display model plane and hand-painted with great concern for accuracy. This display model plane relives the the medium attack plane in many air wings in 1965 with the A-6A Intruder slated to replace it.
