Details: The Bell P-39 Airacobra was manufactured by the United States between 1940 and 1944 and proved to be one of the most successful fixed wing plane produced by Bell Aircraft. It was the principal American fighter aircraft in services when the US entered WWII. Its other prime user was the Soviet Air Force who used the Airacobra primarily for air-to-air combat against a variety of German aircraft. Their successful group aerial fighting tactics based on comparatively low speed, low altitude combat suited the Bell fighter with its sturdy construction, reliable radio gear and adequate fire power. This replica is based on the aircraft as flown by a Russian fighter ace Captain Aleksandr Ivanovitch Pokryshkin, who was the Commander of the 16th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment (GFAR).
Decorated in a dark green upper body with two black walkways on either side of the cockpit and grey underside, the P-39 carries the Soviet Air Force markings on the upper and lower wings and along the fuselage. The number of 'kills' are printed in red on the port side in front of the cockpit, while the aircraft numbering appears on both the fuselage and the tail fin in white and yellow respectively.

Propeller blades are black with yellow tips and the propeller spinner and tail fin red.

The model is presented in window box packaging, presentation stand to display the aircraft "in flight", permanently retracted landing gear, fixed, non-spinning plastic propellers, no pilot figures
