"Great kit, lots of options"
tylerkimble20
This kit was easy to assemble with really nice detail. comes with 2 sets of markings and armament options. very detailed instructions with really good painting instructions. Can be built with dive breaks open or closed and wing flaps up or down. Cockpit detail was also very nice. I really enjoyed this kit and would love to build another one

"Excellent model kit for intermediate/advance builders"
mmdixonjr
As always Tamiya models are very well produced and the instructions are easy to use. Do keep in mind that if you don't build a lot of military aircraft models, you will need a lot of different paint colors. There are decals for two aircraft and tons of ordinance that you will never use on this build. Keep it for other models. Overall it's one of the best model kits that I've ever built with the pieces all fitting perfect and no flash.

 
"Best of the breed"

Best A1 model I have found. Great fit, no flash. You would do better painting the ordinance going off pictures from the net rather than trying to figure out the paint guides. Example I have seen the rocket pods in different colors so you need to check if you are doing a particular plane. Big plus is that it comes with Vietnam era munitions and lots of it I will be using some of the ordinance on other A1s .. I has the submunitions dispensers ( the tube like items) that I have not found anywhere else I did not use the decals so I cannot judge them , they look correct. Usual Tamiya quality

 
"Great buy"

Recommend this kit. Easy to build and put together. Didn’t really have any fit issues.

Information

Also going by the names Dauntless II, AD, A-1 Able Dog, and Spad, the Douglas Skyraider saw almost 30 years of service. The Skyraider's development started in June 1944. Not completed in time for WWII, its first combat came with the outbreak of the Korean War in June 1950. The first production version to roll out of the Douglas factory was designated the AD-1. Twelve years and seven versions later, over 3200 Skyraiders had been produced.

Among those, the AD-6 version, also known as "Able Dog Six", was produced in the greatest numbers. The next and final version of the Skyraider, the AD-7, was extremely identical to the AD-6, but it had reinforced wing spars and wing fittings, as well as the strongest landing gear of all the variants. The AD-7 housed the new wright R-3350-26WB engine, which enabled a top speed of 285 knots. Due to a directive to standardize the designation of Navy and Air Force aircraft, AD-6 and AD-7 became known as A-1H and A-1J respectively.

In 1965, when U.S. air operations in Vietnam became more aggressive, literally hundreds of Skyraiders, including the A-1J, were deployed to the 14th and 56th Special Operations Wings (SOW). Armed with Mk.82 and Mk.117 bombs, 20mm wing-mounted cannons, and rocket launchers, the Skyraiders were used in a wide variety of combat missions.
