The Skyhawk is a lightweight aircraft with a maximum takeoff weight of 24,500 pounds (11,100 kg) and has a top speed of more than 600 miles per hour (970 km/h). The aircraft's five hardpoints support a variety of missiles, bombs and other munitions and were capable of delivering nuclear weapons using a low altitude bombing system and a "loft" delivery technique. The A-4 was originally powered by the Wright J65turbojet engine; from the A-4E onwards, the Pratt & Whitney J52 was used.
This model is a single seat and includes one pilot figure. As a Top Gun model, it comes "clean" with no weapons to be attached to its wings or fuselage. It does includes a detailed landing gear as well as the cover of the wheel wells to give the appearance of in-flight. There is a stand included.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
The box measures 8 inches by 8 inches by 4 inches.
