De Havilland Dh-112 Venom Nf-3 Jet Airplane model kit 1/72Cyber Hobby
Kit# 5116 ON SALE!! List Price: 45.00 USD
This british aircraft was a single-engine jet fighter derived from the vampire, and the royal air force (raf) used both single-seat fighter-bomber and two-seat night-fighter versions. Venoms were also used by iraq, new zealand, sweden, switzerland and venezuela. The venom first flew in 1949, but this kit represents the nf-3, which was the final night-fighter type.
The nf-3 entered service in 1955 but its short career ended in 1957 when it was supplanted by the gloster javelin. Some 123 nf-3 examples were produced, this variant featuring ejector seats, a ghost 104 jet engine and a new american radar that required alterations to the nose. Interestingly, the crew (pilot and navigator/radar operator) sat side by side in the cockpit of the venom nf series.
