Description

This is an injection-plastic jet aircraft model kit.

To overcome the A-37's problems encountered in service, the US Air Force put forward a plan to upgrade the A-37 Super Tweets. The plan made the A-37 a totally different aircraft which is firmer, heavier, and more powerful. The upgraded Dragonfly was called the A-37B. The payload and fuel capacity were up to 2.67 tons and 1,920 liters.

The biggest difference between type A and B is the position of the pitot tube, relocated on the type B to the leading edge of the vertical tail. A refuelling probe was installed at the head of the fuselage. Some export models have the probe shortened or removed altogether.

This kit contains more than 170 parts molded in grey and clear plastic, and includes decals and photo-etched parts. Completed model measures 203mm long with a 241mm wingspan.
