Product Description

 Hobby Master Boeing  F4B-4  Douglas Ingalls NAS Anacostia 1930s  1/48  Scale. Diecast metal and plastic parts. HA7905

In the early 1930s Boeing developed a series of biplanes designated the F4B for the US Navy and US Marine Corps but was a P-12 for the US Army Air Corps. The aircraft were first accepted in 1929 and served as the primary fighter. The P-12 was built in 6 successful variants while the F4B had 4. The P-12 was replaced by the Boeing P-26 in 1934-35 but the F4B carried on with operational duties until the Grumman F2F/F3F series completely replaced them in 1938.
The USN Department made aircraft such as the Boeing F4B-4 available to headquarters staff whenever they had to travel to a facility within the aircraft range. These aircraft were based at Anacostia NAS, Washington, D.C. and wore a highly polished metal finish. One trip was made by the Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Douglas Ingalls so he could attend an Airshow at the Floyd Bennett Field, New York in 1935. This was New York City's first municipal airport.
