Mastercraft Collection: OV-1 Mohawk
Wingspan: 18 inches
Length: 15.5 inches
The Mohawk was designed to meet an Army and Marine Corps need for an observation and attack aircraft that could outperform the Cessna L-19 Bird Dog. The Mohawk's mission would include observation, artillery spotting, air control, emergency resupply, naval target spotting, liaison, and radiological monitoring. The Navy specified that the aircraft must be capable of operating from small "jeep" escort class carriers.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
