"Tamiya kit is still the top!"
I built this as a Marine bomber from Korea- dark blue all over and removed some antennas, check your resource photos. I used decals from an old Corsair kit. This kit is well molded and has the separate air-brakes that can be displayed opened or closed- kinda cool. It comes with a full set of pylons and has a cool way to change a few center tanks with bigger bombs. The shape is right on and goes together really easy. The airflow deflectors around the cockpit can be tricky but stay patient- they do fit. Flash is non-existent and the parts always fit well. The hard part is deciding what bomb load to display!!

"Great plane"
I have built tons of Tamiya kits and have never had an issue with them. The instructions are always clear and easy to follow and usually provide tips that can help improve the kit. There was no flash on the parts and everything fit together like it should. The cockpit detailing was ok. The instrument panel was a decal, and there were some minor details on the walls. An ambitious modeler should be able to improve on the kit and super detail everything to really set it apart from other planes. I'd recommend this kit to anyone as it went together without any problems and creates a pretty nice plane when finished.

"Nice model to build!"
fbbrown (Fort Mohave, Arizona)
This was a wonderful model to do. All the pieces fit together very well with little or no trimming. I wouldn't say this was a model for a young inexperienced modeler to do if you want it to come out really nice. I made mine from the U.S. Midway aircraft carrier which is a museum in San Diego, California. I have been on the aircraft carrier and seen the actual aircraft that this model portrays, which is one of three versions that this kit includes. Always a pleasure to build models from Tamiya.

"Detailed Kit"
Very nice detailed kit. How can you go wrong with a kit from Tamiya? There are other versions but I like the US Navy one the best.


During 1943 the U.S. Bureau of Aeronautics considered to combine the tasks of torpedo bomber and dive-bomber into one. Several aircraft manufacturers, such as Douglas and Martin, were requested to develop a large, single-seat attack aircraft. According to the requirement, Douglas Skyraider, was developed by Douglas Aircraft Company, Inc.

The development was started in early July 1944, and all night efforts of engineers made the first prototype's first flight possible already on March 18, 1945. Despite the short period of the development, flight trials proved the airframe's flight characteristics satisfactory and the aircraft was rated very highly. In May 1945 a letter of intent for 598 production was signed. The name "Skyraider" was officially approved for the aircraft in February of the following year, and the distribution to units was started at the end of the same year. The Skyraider was powered by Wright R3350 radial engine yielding 2,800 horse power and equipped with three large dive brakes on the fuselage.

The Skyraider had a number of types, from the AD-1 to AD-7, recording grand total number of production of more than 3,000. Among them, AD-6 was the most produced variant. The AD designation for the Skyraider was changed in 1962, and the AD-6 became the A-1H. Noted for its durability and a large capacity for external stores, the Skyraider was well liked by its pilots and crewmen.
