Acme Douglas A-20 Havoc

I've been posting tiny airplanes for a while now cuz that's the box that got dug out of The Cave during a recent archaeological dig :-) They're also easy to photograph on my Amazon MyStudio set-up. Up next is this nifty little gem from Acme, the A-20 Havoc made from 1945 to the mid-'50s and measures 4 1/2" (11.43cm) L x 5 3/8" (13.65cm) wingspan x 1 1/8" (2.85cm) H. 

The A-20 was a light bomber/intercept aircraft which served with at least seven countries besides the U.S., but the first recipient of the aircraft was France. It's also well known as the British Boston. First taking flight in 1939 it remained in production until 1944 with Russia receiving more than any other customer, to include the USAAF, under the lend-lease program.

Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
