Silver Streak 40' Wood Sheathed Refrigerator Car - Edelweiss Beer - HO Craftsman Kit, 1/87, 439

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Classic kit from the Craftsman Era of HO kits. Very detailed and well made kit. Silver Streak was one of a number of manufactures that created very realistic wood and metal kits during the 1940s and 1950s. This is, in my opinion, an exceptional kit. Includes pre-scribed and cut and factory painted and lettered hardwood sides decorated with 'Drink Edelweiss Brew' and all other required markings, fully milled and cut hardwood roof and floor, beautiful cast car ends, brass door hardware and cast brake parts including levers, cast coupler pockets, underside girders, bolsters, ice hatches, brake wheel, metal ladders, grab irons, roof ribs and brake linkage, scale chain and more. This kit has complete underside detail and instructions to help with this tricky but rewarding task. Includes full size plans and instructions. The kit has never been started. All parts are still internal factory sealed bags.

1957 hardbox issue with the Parents' Magazine seal. Please note that this is an earlier issue with 'Famous Fighters' in the oval border of the Aurora logo and is has the '.29' cent price extension.

This is a model of the very early YF-102 prototype with the straight (non-area rule) fuselage. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Around this time, Aurora issued a series of inexpensive (usually 29 cent) small scale kits that were designed to sell at almost any type of retail location. The line was successful and further expanded - when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they fit in nicely with this established line.
