I don't remember if this is the one, but I built a Revell Skyraider in 1961. I recall that it was a good kit, and built up very well. I built it for the brother of a friend who was flying one of these in the Navy, and he liked it when I gave it to him. Remember, however, that the memory becomes selective after a certain point in life ( I now am able to hide my own Easter Eggs). Maybe this helps a bit. Revell, at that time, ws the best of kits available.

I built a a Revell A3D centuries ago '68-71? IIRC it was box scale, probably 1/96. At that time it had "features", you could build the wings and tail so they folded over. Don't recall much about fit issues since I wasn't into putty back then anyway. Don't remember much in the way of detail either, 3 crew, heavy duty canopy seems to be about it.

Hope you have fun with it
