Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Douglas Boston Mk.IV (A-20 Havoc) - 18 Squadron, RAF, Italy, 1944-45

1:72 Scale.  Length: 8".  Wingspan: 10.25”

In 1943 every tenth Douglas A-20 was built with a transparent Plexiglas nose to accommodate a Norden bombsight and bombardier. The A-20J variant would be flown by the formation leader on bombing runs. When this aircraft dropped its bombs the other aircraft in the formation would follow. The RAF named the A-20J the Boston Mk. IV and received 169 of these aircraft starting in the summer of 1944. This particular aircraft, with 105 mission markings, was piloted by Flight Sgt. John Samain DFM and flown against targets in northern Italy and the Balkans.

The A-20 Havoc was an American light bomber, attack and night fighter aircraft operated by the USAAF and Allied air forces during World War II. It was known as the Douglas Boston in Great Britain’s Royal Air Force and Royal Australian Air Force and as the DB-7 in Soviet and French Air Forces. The night fighter variant was designated P-70. The A-20 prototype was first flown in January 1939 with the first production aircraft flying on August 17, 1939. Although it was not the fastest or longest-range aircraft in its class, the A-20/DB-7 series distinguished itself as a tough and dependable combat aircraft. Production ran until September 1944 with 7,478 built in several variants (7,098 by Douglas and 380 by Boeing), almost half of which was delivered to the Soviet Union. The A-20 was retired by the U.S. Air Force in 1949.
