1/72 NAF-24 Esoteric Douglas PD-1
Vacuform Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Very rare, high-quality kit. Esoteric vacs have better detailed moldings than many injection molded kits and this model is no exception. Features superior surface detail, good cockpit, beautifully cast metal details and full color decals. Never started. All parts still sealed in factory bags. Complete with instructions and decals. The US Navy used to offer designs of one firm to other manufacturers to build, the theory being that this helped the young aircraft industry. PD-1 was the name given to the 25 Douglas built airplanes based on the Curtiss PN-12 design. PN-12 was the logical progression of the PN-5, which was the increased wingspan version of the WWI F2A. Other companies that built the PN-12 with minor changes were Martin (PM-1, PM-2), Keystone (PK-1) and the Hall PH-1. All of these types served from the early 1930s until replaced by the more modern Consolidated P2Ys and ultimately the PBY.
