Aurora Lockheed F-90 Brooklyn - Famous Fighters Of All Nations, 1/48, 33-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$275   

Very rare and correct Brooklyn hardbox issue. This is the second issue of this kit - the first was in a rather plain flip-top box. The box is very good with typical wear as shown and all four corners are solid. Inside, the kit is 100% correct for this issue. It is molded in gray and does not have landing gear or missiles. Decals and instructions are correct as well as the early clear rectangular stand. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. When Aurora issued it's first two plastic kits, they were copies of the Hawk Model Company's F9F and F-90 fighters. Reportedly, Hawk was not happy about this and there were some words exchanged at some hobby trade shows. Hawk attempted to hide it's name - one example was using rivets to spell H-A-W-K in morse code to prevent further use of it's designs. Fortunately, the incident was not repeated.
