39324 1/48 J2F-5 DUCK 2-0-21


This is a museum quality, factory assembled and painted model for discerning collectors. Aircraft panel lines are delicate, rivets precise. The distinctive Grumman J2F Duck’s main pontoon was blended into the fuselage, making it almost a flying boat. It was an American single-engine amphibious biplane. A crew of two or three were carried in tandem cockpits, forward for the pilot and rear for an observer with room for a radio operator if required. It had a cabin in the fuselage for two passengers or a stretcher.

It was used by each major branch of the U.S. armed forces from the mid-1930s until just after World War II, primarily for utility and air-sea rescue duties. Its missions also included mapping, scouting/observation, anti-submarine patrol, air-sea rescue work, photographic surveys and reconnaissance, and target tug.

The J2F was an improved version of the earlier JF Duck, with the main difference being a longer float. The J2F was used by the U.S. Navy, Marines, Army Air Forces and Coast Guard.
