.:Italeri:. A-7E CORSAIR II #reissue2018

 The LTV A-7 Corsair II was designed and implemented in the first half of the 1960s to satisfy the specific United States Navy request to have a new carrier-capable light attack aircraft able to replace the Douglas A-4 Skyhawk and the piston-powered Douglas A-1 Skyraider. It was directly developed by the fighter Vought F-8 Crusade airframe. The A-7 was characterised by the large frontal air intake under tha cabin, by the 35° foldable swept wing to optimize the use and the storage on the aircraft carriers flight decks and by the adoption of a modern Head-up-Display to enhance the operational effectiveness.  Thanks to its underwing hardpoints the A-7 was able to carry an impressive offensive load based on conventional bombs, guided bombs as the Paveway and air-to-surface missiles. The A-7E was the last version produced for the U.S Navy with an improved operational capabilities and the possibility to use the Harpoon anti-ship missiles and the AGM-88 HARM anti-radiation missiles.

.:RS Models:. Ki-86/K9W1

In 1939 the German Bücker company demonstrated their Bü 131 "Jungmann" two-seat primary trainer to the Japanese Navy, which was impressed by the capabilities of the aircraft. In August 1942 after the completion of negotiations for obtaining the manufacturing rights of the Bü 131, Watanabe (later renamed Kyushu) put the type into production as the Navy Type 2 Primary Trainer Model 11 (K9W1). Named Momiji (Maple) and code named "Cypress" by the Allies, the K9W1 became the Navy's standard primary trainer. The outstanding qualities of the K9W1 attracted the interest of the Army, which in 1943 instructed Nippon Kokusai Koku to manufacture a version of the aircraft bearing the designation Ki-86. Also known as the Type 4 Primary Trainer for the Army, the first examples were delivered starting in 1944 and replaced the Ki-17 as the Army's standard primary trainer.
