Notes from our tech department:
This is a 1/72 Rockwell OV-10A Bronco Plastic Model Kit from Academy.

The OV-10A Bronco was designed principally as a counter-insurgency aircraft
which gives it the ability to perform high precision attacks on ground targets
The aircraft also has a cargo compartment which can carry 5 paratroopers, or
two stretchers and a medic. More recent versions of the aircraft have also
been used in the forward air controller (FAC) directing other aircraft. A
primary design feqture of the OV-10 is its twin boom layout and the aircraft
is powered by a pair of Garret T76-G-10 turboprops. The OV-10 saw considerable
service in Vietnam and is used by the US Air Force and Marine Corps
