The Skyraider in Scale

RCN News - - Scale Trap-pings -

The Dou­glas Skyraider has been well served in plas­tic with kits in all the ma­jors scales, with the ex­cep­tion of 1/144. The best kit in 1/72 scale is the Hasegawa kit which was re­cently reis­sued as an AD-6 in VA-65 mark­ings. In 1/48 scale the Tamiya Skyraider is ex­cel­lent, though the 80’s Mono­gram Skyraider, now is­sued by Rev­ell, can still be made into a nice model. In 1/32 scale the large and well de­tailed Zoukei-Mura Skyraider has been re­leased to pos­i­tive re­views. In 1/144 scale, the best op­tion is prob­a­bly the pre-painted F-Toys gashapon Skyraider, which can be re­worked into the RCN Skyraider.
