Very rare multi-media 'plastic and pre-carved wood' kit. Before there were injection molded plastic kits, model builders worked in wood or metal.

Includes factory-cut wings with airfoil, completely carved fuselage, clear plastic canopy, colored die-cut wooden parts, plastic parts including pilot, wheels, bombs, gear struts and doors, inlet and exhaust, nose strut and wheel and more.

All other parts were never sealed and have been inventoried complete including sand paper, decals and instructions. The large decal sheet is in 'excellent' condition.
