Kit JX-08 Douglas F4D (F6) Skyray is a 1/30 built-up scale flying
model jet. Includes a vacuum-molded canopy.
The Skyray was the first carrier-launched plane to hold the world's
absolute speed record (753.4 mph) and was the first Navy fighter capable
of exceeding Mach 1 in level flight. It was one of the most effective
interceptors of its era.
This kit includes a full-size rolled plan, building
instructions, hand sorted and weighed printed balsa and balsa strip wood, vacuum-formed
canopy, wire, TissueCal™ markings, and
Easy Built Lite tissue in light grey. You
will need a hobby knife, fine sandpaper,
building board, glue,
and catapult rubber.
