1/48 Maircraft V-1 Robot Bomb (Buzz Bomb) - Solid Wood 1/48 Kit
VG++ Wood old
Solid wood scale kit from about 1945. This is a high quality model for this type of kit. The fuselage, wings and pulse jet engine are accurately precut in two dimensions, which greatly speeds up assembly time. Includes an superb set of instructions with full size drawings, a full set of templates, full instructions, aircraft background and specifications, a nicely done cut away drawing of the V-1 and a display stand. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including all parts and instructions. Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model), and eventually even made the 'Little Gem' series in constant 1/72 scale.
