1/144 Douglas AC-47D Spooky. Roden 310
This is an injection-plastic airliner model kit.
The Douglas AC-47D Spooky was an American ground attack aircraft of the Vietnam War, based on the famous C-47 Skytrain transport. The machine was designed specifically to combat ground targets, which were a significant problem for the US military command.
Where their opponents offered only weak air defense the AC-47s were effective weapons in the zone of the so-called "Ho Chi Minh Trail," but with the advent of substantial losses they were gradually replaced by more modern gunships. After the withdrawal of the US Air Force, some of them were used by Thailand and Laos up to the early 1970s. In total, about 60 machines of this type were rebuilt or converted.
