Waco CG 4A Glider 1/35th Scale MMAC001 WWII Series $199.00
The Waco CG 4A glider was the most used US troop and military glider of WWII. While the USAF called it the CG-4A, the British military referred to it as the Hadrian (after the historic emperor of Rome).
The Waco Aircraft Company designed the glider and fights were first tested in May 1942. The Waco Aircraft Company built and delivered in excess of 13,900 CG-4A gliders.
The structure was built from wood and metal and then it was covered in fabric. A crew consisted of a pilot and a copilot. The glider featured two main control wheels and a tail wheel. The glider could carry up to 13 troop and equipment. Furthermore, the hinged nose could be swung upward to load a 1/4 ton truck, such as a Jeep, a 75mm howitzer or a 1/4 trailer.
These gliders were usually towed behind a C-47 aircraft, and a few C-46s during and after Operation Plunder. The glider was towed behind these planes via a 11/16” diameter, 350’ long tow line.
