Build you static model fleet with the Italeri 1/48 Scale AD-4 Skyraider Plastic Model Kit. The Douglas Skyraider was manufactured immediately after War World II.
Despite its traditional piston motor in an age when jets were increasing, the Skyraider had an extraordinary long career. It made its first flight in 1945 and it was retired from service only in 1975.
The Skyraider participated in several conflicts, demonstrating its value in Korea and in Vietnam. Characterised by low speed manoeuvrability, it was able to transport impressive war cargos of over 3,500Kg.
Perfect for ground attack missions, it was provided with robust armour to minimise fire damages from the enemy. France used more than 100 Skyraiders, many of which took part to the Algerian war, replacing the old T-6 Texan as insurgency aircraft and close support.
Prior to going out of service, several Skyraiders were sold to Air Forces of the former French colonies, such as Chad and Gabon.
The Italeri range of kits are manufactured from tough styrene plastic and provide a high level of scale detail.
Material: Styrene plastic
