GRUMMAN A7 PROTOTYPE MODEL. Hand-crafted painted wooden model on glass base, of a Grumman A7 jet proposal, in U.S. Navy livery, c.1963. The base is marked "Grumman Design 128 — G-12." 20-3/4 x 20 x 6 inches, excluding base. Provenance: Manufactured by a major aerospace model shop. In 1962 the U.S. Navy began looking for a replacement for the A-4 Skyhawk, a subsonic, carrier-based attack plane. They asked Vought, Douglas Aircraft, and North American Aviation to submit designs based upon existing aircraft. This model represents Grumman's proposal, a single-seater based upon the two-seat A-6 Intruder that was introduced in 1963. In the end, the Navy chose Vought's design, the A-7 Corsair II.
