Product Description

Product Description

Detailed 1/72 scale assembly model kit of the Douglas A-20/DB-7, a World War II era twin-engine light-bomber/night-fighter. Developed by the Douglas Aircraft Company and introduced in 1941, the A-20 served with several Allied air forces, including the air forces of the United States, Great Britain, Soviet Union, Australia, South Africa, France, and The Netherlands. The designation DB-7 was used by air forces of Australia, South Africa, France, and The Netherlands. Although the A-20 had neither the speed of a true fighter aircraft nor the range of a bomber, the type was a favorite of many pilots who flew it because of its rugged dependability and excellent maneuverability. A-20 bomber variants ("Boston") and night-fighter variants ("Havoc") were produced and used by Allied air forces throughout the war. This Airfix 1/72 scale assembly kit features the Douglas DB-7B / Boston III variant, the first batch of the series to actually be ordered by Britain, in February 1940. This kit comes with 65 parts.

From the Manufacturer

Amongst other operations the Boston III, a light bomber, took part in the attacks on the Scharnhorst, Gneisenau and Prinz Eugen during their dash through the English Channel (Operation Cerberus) and the infamous raid on Dieppe (Operation Jubilee). Three hundred were delivered and some were converted for use in intruder and night fighter roles.

Verified Purchase
I first built this kit about 30 years ago, so I was quite pleased to be able to do it again. The kit appears to have been re-released, as the surface detail is definitely better.

It comes together well, and has reasonable internal detail - but a keen eye for painting the interior detail, plus a bit of scratchbuilding - goes a long way. The after-market Falcon canopy set works a treat, but requires careful preparation.

Great price for a great little kit.

By P. Schumacher on August 29, 2011
Like M. Barton, I built this kit long ago, and was glad to get it again.

It is built of light plastic--light in color and weight--and the pieces go together well.

The light gray takes paint well, and the flexibility of the plastic makes for easy building and modification.

There was one strange problem (which I didn't remember from before). The main wheels are each made in two halves. But the halves BOTH have male flanges. In other words, instead of one fitting into the other, both have raised buttons and so you have to saw the protrusions down flat. This is a bother, but easy to do.

Three sets of decals. Very nice.
