Douglas A-1H Skyraider USN Model Scale:1/48

SKU: PW10053 Categories: ,


Douglas A-1H Skyraider USN Model Scale:1/48 Coming as a response to the USN requirement for a new long-range, carrier-based bomber, the Skyraider was designed in the early 1940s by Ed Heinemann of Douglas Aircraft. The aircraft was meant to fill in the large whole to be left by the Helldiver and the Avenger. The initial model of the plane was designated as the XBT2D-1 which was first flown in March 1945. The USN began evaluating the plane a month after which eventually led to the plane’s military employment in 1949. The A-1H Skyraider, in particular, was powered by a 2,700hp Wright R-3350-26WA radial engine. It had a top speed of 322mph, a range of 1,144 nautical miles, and a climb rate of 2,850ft/min. Its armaments consist of about 8,000lbs of ordinance and four 20mm M2 cannons. Dimensions: Wingspan: 9 Inches Length: 12 Inches This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
