This handsome model plane is of the Douglas TA-4J Skyhawk US Naval aircraft. The TA-4 Skyhawk is an aircraft carrier capable attack airplane. This single-engine aircraft used the delta wing shape that was a new design in the 1950s era. The Navy ceased using the Skyhawk in 2003, but many of the early 3,000 Skyhawks are still being flown by foreign military units.
The TA-4J Skyhawk model airplane is crafted from Philippine mahogany wood, and is a striking aviation gift. This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced using exact blueprint specifications. Each model is meticulously hand painted giving the aircraft a deep, rich finish. The result is a museum quality sculpture to be admired, and it is a magnificent collectible. The model is fully assembled and arrives with a display base.
