Mind: this is a modelling kit.
It quite soon became clear to the US military, as well as the British RAF, that the rather large and complicated types such as the O-47 or Lysander which had been designed in the pre-war days for army co-operation, close support, artillery observation and liaison roles were in fact ill-suited for real operations. Lighter types with the ability of very short take offs and landings proved much more successful. And arguably the most famous of all types of this category is the L-4 Grasshopper, developed from the originally civilian J-3 Cub which had done really well during US Army pre-war exercises.
The first of our boxings captures the Grasshoppers' combat journey beginning with the Operation Torch, the Allied landing in Africa, through the landing in Italy, Normandy, to the US airfields in western Bohemia, Czechoslovakia, where the Grasshoppers ended their WW2 combat service.
Two styrene sprues are joined by one clear parts sprue and a decal sheet with markings for four airframes.
- There has been no new and fine L-4 Grasshopper kit for more than five decades.
- Interesting colour schemes
- Etches included in the kit
- Pre-cut masks available separately
Also used by the Dutch KNIL-LA after WWII.
Decals for one of these planes can be found on the, now out of print, Dutch Decal sheet DD48060
