Though awkward in appearance, the A-7 Corsair II proved to be a versatile and resilient aircraft. Serving the USN, USAF, and other operators for almost four decades, this single-seat, tactical close air support variant showed its superb ground attack capability in the closing of the Southeast Asia War. The A-7D Corsair II was flown at the Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base in Thailand by the 354th Tactical Fighter Wing. Through the help of its automatic electric navigation as well as its weapon delivery system, this Corsair airplane was able to achieve outstanding accuracy. The A-7D took its maiden flight in April 1968, and after being in service with the USAF and Air National Guard, it retired in the early 1990s.
Despite its odd design, the A-7D Corsair II is undoubtedly one of the best attack aircraft ever built. This museum-quality wood model aircraft features hand-carved and hand-painted design that brings to life the scheme of the real aircraft. Perfect as a tabletop display, this model plane will certainly make a lasting impression with its eye-catching design. Complete with the real aircraft’s markings, this wooden replica deserves the spotlight in your home or office.
