Douglas F4D (F6) Skyray




The Douglas F4D (F6) Skyray kit is a 1:30 built-up scale flying model jet.

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 printed balsa and balsa strip wood, vacuum-molded canopy, wire, TissueCal™ markings, and Easy Built Lite tissue in light grey. To build this model you will need a building board, hobby knife, fine sandpaper, glue, and catapult rubber.
