Douglas F4D Skyray

Douglas F4D Skyray

The Douglas F4D Skyray (later redesignated F-6 Skyray) was an American carrier-based supersonic fighter/interceptor built by the Douglas Aircraft Company. Although it was in service for a relatively short time and never entered combat, it was notable for being the first carrier-launched aircraft to hold the world's absolute speed record, at 752.943 mph,[1] and was the first United States Navy and United States Marine Corps fighter that could exceed Mach 1 in level flight.

Douglas F4D Skyray - 15 1/2 inch wing span, 19 11/16 inches long, kit no. Y9, jet by Comet Model Hobbycraft Inc. the model was designed and drawn by Harold Peters. This model has many parts to be cut from sheet balsa which complicates the construction. In doing some online research I found that the power of choice for this model is a Jetex micro rocket of unknown size. The plan does have what appears to be detailed instructions on the assembly of this model and some notes on scale details.

The poor rendition of the fuselage side in the plans aside, this would be a fun model to build – and if they suitable Jetex can be found – a fun flyer.
