Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Very rare. Wen-Mac was a famous manufacture of gas powered U-Control model aircraft. In 1955, they produced their one and only injection molded model kit, this Northrop X-4.

The instructions are on the back, and the small crinkle bag is still present. Please note that Wen-Mac did not issue this kit with decals. Molded in the correct red plastic with additional metal parts. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing small metal nut, easy purchased at any hardware store. Otherwise inventoried complete with all other parts.
