Planet Models' 1/72 scale Flying Dorito
A-12 Avenger

by Piotr Dmitruk


McDonnell Douglas A-12 Avenger


Planet Models resin kits are available online from Squadron




Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my pleasure to present my Horten... I mean McDonnell Douglas A-12 ďAvengerĒ, designed to replace Grumman A-6 Intruder as a carrier- based attack aircraft. A full-scale mock-up was built, but the project was unfortunately cancelled in 1991.


This 1/72 scale replica manufactured by Planet Models was a real joy to buid. Nice panel lines, very well done cockpit interior and wheel legs and wells, crystal cockpit canopy.



There were only minor problems with fitting of the two fuselage halves and air intakes, and several pin holes on the wings upper surface. Itís a pity, that bomb-bays or arrestor hook are not opened.

Wholeheartedly recommended.
