    Model Details:
    1. Engine
    The organically intertwined exhaust pipes. Look at the R3350 engine with the superb double-row of 18 cylinders! If you work on the detailed piping with your own hands, it will surely be a museum level model. You can choose an open or closed position for both the engine cowling and the front shutter. Be sure not to miss the offset attachment of the vertical tail to the fuselage for its tremendous engine torque.
    2. Propeller
    Look at the accurately recreated Aero Products' propeller and its pitch! Did you notice that there is a line on the back of the propeller? SWS recreated it accurately to the actual airplane based on the revelations from our research. They studied not only drawings and references, but also did actual airplane research.
    3. Landing Gear
    The main landing gear, which absorbs the shock from the landing and supports the heavy, huge airplane, as well as its folding system are the must-see points of this carrier-based bomber. For its thick and reliable main landing gear struts, you can choose its suspending condition from an armament loaded type or a non-loaded type. The main wing spars and ribs inside of the main wing can be seen through the wheel well. Please be satisfied with SWS's signature accuracy in its expression, which you may have never experienced.
    4. Cockpit
    It is said that a bubble shaped canopy is hard to express, but it is recreated here accurately. Its attractive shape, which is the signature of US airplanes, gives a sharp look to this model's entire silhouette.
    5. Internal Structure
    SWS recreated not only the engine and the cockpit, but also the main wing spars, which have a complicated movable system, the ribs beneath the external panels, the rigid bulkhead with wireless communication devices and such included, the fuel tanks in the fuselage, etc.
    6. Main Wings
    The main wing folding system is recreated accurately with a new mechanism. It moves smoothly in the same angle as the actual airplane without spoiling the beauty of the wings. The pylons, the signature of the SKYRAIDER which was proud to have the biggest payload as a reciprocated engine fighter, were marvellously recreated even to the detail of anti-vibration steadies. Additional tanks (external fuel tanks) can be loaded on to the default kit.
    7. Armaments
    Look at the accuracy of the M3/20mm cannon and bullet belt! You can also make the most of the carrier-based bomber's attractiveness by hanging the separate sale item ?US Aircraft Weapons? onto the main wing pylons! This set includes various types of the warheads which were used for a long time in the Navy from the early period of the SKYRAIDER' deployment.
