This A-7 model is the single seat version, the cockpit is permanently closed and there are no pilot/crew figures. The landing gear is optional, one can attach the landing gear or cover the wheel wells. There is a basic plastic stand included.

 

 

 

For this model, the fuselage is made of metal while the wings and other smaller parts are made of plastic.

 

This model has some weapons/accessories already attached to the wings and fuselage. It has a pair of short range AA missiles, a pair of fuel tanks, a pair of air to ground missile and 12 conventional bombs. The weapons are already attached to the wings

 

The maker of the model, DeAgostini, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very crisp and one can see the little dots that represent the rivets holding down the panels.

 

 

 

The packaging is quite basic, the model comes packed between two transparent plastic clam shells and these are attach to a cardboard background. The clam shells are quite strong and keep the model safe for shipping.

 

This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal, 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 package measures 9.5" x 9.5" x 4"

The A-7 airframe design was based on the successful supersonicVought F-8 Crusader, although it was somewhat smaller and rounded off. The Corsair II initially entered service with the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. It was later adopted by the United States Air Force, including the Air National Guard, to replace the Douglas A-1 SkyraiderNorth American F-100 Super Sabre and Republic F-105 Thunderchief.[citation needed] The aircraft was also exported to Greece in the 1970s, and Portugal in the late 1980s.
