This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The Northrop F-89 Scorpion was a twin-engine, all weather fighter-interceptor designed to locate, intercept, and destroy enemy aircraft by day or night under all types of weather conditions. One of the most heavily armed fighter aircraft, the F-89 was the backbone of the North American Air Defense Command and defended the continental US for over 17 years. The F-89 was the first aircraft designed to carry an all-rocket armament, the first operational aircraft to be armed with the Hughes Falcon air-to-air guided missile, and the first nuclear-armed interceptor.
Academy releases a decal variation of their F-89D Scorpion. With a wingspan of over 8.0" and a fuselage of 7", this replica of the famous bird is a wonderful addition to your 1/72 collection. Fully engraved panel lines and rivet details cover the kit. Cockpit is highly detailed and so is the landing gear. Authentic decal markings from USAF are included.
