Product Details


The OS2U Kingfisher first flew on March 1, 1938. The O2SU-3/5 variants included self-sealing fuel tanks, armor protection, two .30 caliber guns (dorsal and nose mounted), and able to carry 325 lb of depth charges or 100 lb pounds of bombs, powered by a 450 hosepower Pratt & Whitney R-985-AN2 engine. The OS2U came in both float and land-based configurations, and served as observer aircraft, anti-submarine aircraft, and rescue aircraft. The Kingfisher's most important role during the war was as rescuer of downed aviators, and was second only to the PBY Catalina in this job.

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!
