Developed in the 1930s, the Kingfisher series was assigned to battleships and cruisers for observational duties. Used by the United States Navy, the Kingfisher aircraft could be launched into the air by catapult. As a compact floatplane this aircraft did not have exceptional engine power, but could be used for various military activities such as air sea rescue, dive-bombing, liaison roles, and artillery spotting. The plane’s floats could also be removed and a wheeled undercarriage could be installed if needed.
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!
