1/72 118 Italaerei Waco CG-4 Hadrian Assault Glider - USAAF Normandie / USAAF Sicily / RAF
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+
Same as the Testors issue, as Italaerei originally made the molds. Nicely detailed kit with a very fine fabric texture, full cockpit, complete interior including troop benches, wheels and skids and two paratroopers. Has markings for all three aircraft. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Waco CG-4 was designed and initially built by Waco Aircraft Company of Troy, OH. It first saw action in Sicily and the operation was termed a disaster. This likely had more to do with planning than the actual glider. Missions in Europe, including D-Day, went much better. The glider was even deployed to Burma. It could carry up to 13 troops, or a jeep and four men, or a 75mm Field Gun.
