1/72 C50-89 Strombecker Lockheed VTO Vertical Take-Off XFV-1 Fighter
NM Wood old
This kit is old store stock and in fantastic NM condition. The box has perfect color and gloss and the only flaw is a 3/8 by 1/4 inch price tag pull on one short side. Very high quality wood and plastic kit. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - a quick sanding would finish them. This kit also contains many plastic injection molded parts, so it was produced in the transition from wood to plastic. The prop hubs, spinner, tip tanks and fuselage are wood, while the wings, props, scoop and tank fins are bright gloss red plastic while the canopy is injection molded in clear. Inside, the kit is as new. Includes full color, excellent decals, factory sand paper and sanding stick as well as a 'Join the Strombecker Model-Makers Club' brochure. Never started. Factory sealed bag red parts and the non-sealed parts are inventoried 100% complete with decals and instructions. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood precarved model manufacture. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. This has made them prized collector items.
