WM72079 - Commonwealth CA-15 Kangaroo fighter - 1:72 - Wings Models

This item is a new, unassembled, 1/72 scale vacuform model of Australia's long-range, medium-altitude, High-performance fighter, the CA-15 Kangaroo. Although a mock-up was completed in 1942, many engine change and other proposals delayed the CA-15's completion for several years - finally, the evolved general outline and appearance strongly resembled the USA's P-51D fighter - though the CA-15 was more massive and had a more sloping nose. Dubbed the "Kangaroo", this aircraft flew until 1950; it was 36'-2.5" long with a wingspan of 36'-0", was armed with six wing-mounted .50 caliber machine guns and 10 wing-mounted rockets, had a range of 2,540 miles and a speed of 442 mph; it makes a model about 6 inches long with a wingspan of about 6 inches. This kit is the ONLY kit currently available for the Commonwealth CA-15 in ANY scale.
