The F-89 Scorpion was an early American jet-powered fighter aircraft which was initially built as an all-weather interceptor. It was among the first jet fighters with guided missiles by the United States Air Force, and is also the first combat aircraft equipped with air-to-air nuclear weapons called unguided Genie rockets. However, F-89 having straight and rigid wings limited the aircraftÕs performance.
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!
