Airfix Catalogue description:

Complete with U.S. Navy transfers, this Airfix kit makes into a 1/72nd scale model of an aircraft which is in use at the present time. Due to its small size it does not need folding wings normally associated with carrier-based aircraft. With a speed of 700 miled per hour, the Skyhawk, which has the ability to carry an atomic bomb, is powered by a Wright J65 turbojet engine. It is used at the present time in considerable numbers by operational units of the U.S. Navy. - Taken from the 1st edition catalogue (1962)
