Model shows an aircraft of EC 1/20 "Aurès-Nementcha" in 1961. France used Skyraiders in the Algerian War from the late 50ies to the early 60ies. When they were withdrawn from combat, some were still used as recon birds.

  1. Another amazing result from the Spreitzhofer factory!

  2. The old dump truck looks really good in that scheme and markings - another lovely build!

  3. Nice work. These airplanes saw their last work in Chad in 1984.

    They're pretty much all the Skyraider warbirds you see these days, other than an A-1E.

  4. Very nice build, Reinhard @grimreaper
