This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
Initially planned as a glider in the early post war years by the Chase Firm, the concept was redesigned and fitted with engines. In 1953 production took place and in 1955 it started to appear into U.S Air Force and later on in U.S Coast Guard inventory as a successor of the Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar. It was one of the last planes that were equipped with radial engines within the U.S Air Force. It became the USAF workhorse during the Vietnam War. The kit comes with 8 sprues of light gray injected plastic and 1 clear sprue of clear parts, engraved panel lines, detailed engines, external fuel tanks and decals for 3 versions:
