1/72 Scale



VMF-311 "Tomcats"



Arriving in Korea on December 7, 1950, VMF-311 was the first land-based Marine jet squadron to be used in combat providing close air support for the Marines and Soldiers on the ground.  In late-June 1952 the squadron participated in the attack on the Sui-ho Dam. Legendary pilots during this era included later Astronaut and Senator John Glenn and baseball star Ted Williams. In over 2½ years of action in Korea the squadron amassed 18,851 combat sorties.

Picked this model up in Hong Kong.

A great little replica.  Has some unique artwork of a Panther on the nose.  Looks good with a Hobby Master Pilot (there is a need for someone to produce a decent 1950s era Pilot figure though). Comes with a display stand (identical to a Dragon Warbirds stand) for displaying in flight.
