Hobby Master HA2913 A-1H Skyraider
"Puff the Magic Dragon"
VA-165 "Boomers"
USS Intrepid

Announced by Pete's Collectibles:



Another nice release, very happy to see more Skyraiders from HM - it's a great mould of what is perhaps my favourite plane (well, maybe joint fave with the Spook) - and more Vietnam releases

I shall replace the image with one not watermarked once HMC catches up

interestingly, HM has drawn exhaust stains on the profile art.

start of something new? let's hope so.

also, the chevron on the profile pic a bit misplaced. i personally am not that bothered, but some might and it's a chance to get it right.

That goes on the "must" list. The only totally complete collection I have.

I'll be excited to get this one. Looks like a very worthy effort.

Pre-prods up on HMC, looking very nice IMO:





The Spad is one of my favourite planes IRL; HM's Spad is one of my favourite pieces of diecast ever produced, and I have most of them; I like this scheme as it is very representative of typical VN cruise schemes, with that impressive bomb tally to make it even more interesting.

Very glad I have this on PO

Looks good. I noticed HM have started to add gloss to their USN models.

Well, the left side says "PUFF THE MAGIC DRAGDN", hard to tell on the right.

Still, won't be able to read it from two feet away.

I'm a tad concerned how low that AC-47 is the the ground

I don't see the Chevron as misplaced, but I do notice that the angle is a bit more opened on the real thing.

I wonder, has anybody had the cojones to try and spray-paint exhaust stains on their Skyraider?

I'm holding out and hoping and praying for HM to offer a USS Oriskany A-1H Skyraider like this one...
