MPM72536 1/72 Douglas A-33/Norwegian DB 8A-5N /Iraqi DB 8A-4
- Customer Reviews
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.
