The actual kit contains a copy of the original instruction sheet with "Marusan Plastic Model Kit" inside the Revell logo design, the older "SAN" logo and the special stand.

Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Topping Douglas F5D Skylancer - Factory Desktop Model In The Original Topping Box

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$365   

Incredibly rare, 1950s NOS Topping F5D Skylancer model untouched in the original factory box. The buyer will be the first one to ever remove it from the box. Inside, all of the factory cardboard and tissue are still intact. The stand and aircraft were never displayed or used - I believe they were never even removed from the box. While never used, please note that these models never left the factory in 'flawless' condition. There were always minor paint flaws and minor molding flaws as they were mass-produced. Furthermore, the canopy, white plastic and decals inevitably have some yellowing, although this example is minimal. If there is any yellowing or age marks (usually brown mildew on the plastic), you can very easily remove this with Novus #2 Fine Scratch Remover. I have found it perfect for both cleaing and bringing back Topping plastic and decals back to super condition. Because the original Topping box adds significantly to the value, it will be carefully packed into another box for shipping. Shipping insurance is required.
