The largest single engine, piston engine aircraft to have ever been flown from the decks of aircraft carriers – yes this is the apt description of the anti-submarine AF-2 Guardian aeroplane. Following the Korea War, the Guardians were redelegated to reserve units and eventually struck off charge. Some of them, however, and mainly due to the strength of their airframe and their excellent range and payload capability, were given a new lease of life and converted to fire fighting machines which kept flying well until the 1970s.
  The kit consists of seven grey styrene sprues, one with clear parts, a set of  PUR parts and a fret of etches. There are also two styles of the water tanks available and the decal sheet caters for makrings of a trio of machines.
