I was going to say that it looks like the Old 1\72 Monogram A-1E kit. I have one of those waiting in the stash. Interesting that Monogram is the only maker to produce that particular, and most versatile model of the Skyraider in this scale.


I recognised it at once - I made one late last year. A curiously under-kitted aircraft considering its long years of service.

Having made one, I would ask you to consider if your journey is worth it, Greg. That kit is nothing but sorrow (cue blues song...) :grin:

Well. To answer that I suppose lemons may be bitter but made into a soufflé. It is indeed a dog of a kit though. I am told there are major inaccuracies in it. The angle of attack is too shsllow and the fuselage not deep enough. I can not verify these as facts though as I don't have any drawings of tjis type. I just hope that when done the two I am building look like Skyraiders.

All the best.

Greg.
