Paragons of piston power
Sheer reliability and massive ordnance capacity kept the piston-powered Skyraiders flying well into the jet-power era. The massive bomb load these planes carried allowed them to deliver millions of pounds of ordnance against ground targets in Korea and Vietnam. AD-5s were Skyraiders built with a tandem seating arrangement to facilitate pilot/co-pilot communication. After decades in action, the Skyraider was retired from American service in 1972. This kit features three seated pilot figures, folding wings with separate flaps, and landing gear you can model retracted or extended.
