Description
Wowing airshow crowds since ’69.

The U.S.A.F. Thunderbirds converted their entire fleet to F-4 Phantom IIs in 1969.

For five exciting years, the Thunderbirds performed some of the most memorable shows in the squadron’s 58-year history flying Phantom IIs. The 1973 oil crisis forced the team to switch to the more fuel-efficient T-38 Talon in 1974. Kit features easy, glue-free snap assembly, complemented by factory-decorated, painted plastic construction.

Description
A favorite of “Top Guns” all over the world.

The F-14 Tomcat was retired by the U.S. Navy in September 2006, but it remains one of today’s most famous fighter aircraft.

The aircraft most famously appeared in the 1986 blockbuster “Top Gun®,” where it was flown by Tom Cruise’s character, “Maverick.” The film was an instant hit, which propelled the actor – and the aircraft – into superstardom.

Description
The famed “Warthog,” on the attack.

All through the Vietnam War, the U.S. Armed Forces lacked adequate close air support. Fairchild-Republic developed the A-10 Thunderbolt to remedy the situation. The A-10 can fly at altitudes under 1,000 feet (300 m) and 350 mph (560 km/h) speeds. The Thunderbolt’s ability to fly “slow and low” makes it better suited for the ground-attack role, where small target detection often plays a part in a mission’s success. Kit features easy, glue-free snap assembly, complemented by factory-decorated, painted plastic construction.
