  • Customer Reviews
The Douglas A-33 was a modified version of its sister company's Northrop A-17. It was a 2 seat light level bomber/dive bomber. The A-17 was a reliable and popular aircraft with its crews but the USAAF decided that bombers and attack aircraft should be multi engined, so the A-17 was surplus to requirements. It was used for coastal patrols around the Panama canal and as a utility aircraft. 
The A-33 (Douglas model  8A-5N) was an export version for the Norwegian air force. By the time they were ready the Germans had already overrun Norway and the Norwegian aircraft went to a training base in Canada for Norwegian aircrews. Some of them ended up back in the US and were used as trainers.
The DB 8A-4 was the export version for the Iraqi air force and were all destroyed in the Anglo-Iraqi war of 1941.
MPM is a Czech based manufacturer and this is their 1/72 DB-8/A-33 kit. The kit is injection moulded plastic with some resin and photo etch metal parts. It is well detailed with engraved panel lines.
There are marking options for 1 plane each of the USAAF, Norwegian and Iraqi Air Forces.
