Air Lines Martin Marauder II (B-26C) RAF - (Frog), 1/72, 12902

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$25   

Purchased new in 1965 in Cleveland, Ohio. Quality Frog kit - no rivets, just fine panel lines for a realistic model. Features separately molded rudder, elevator and ailerons, pilot and gunner figure and detailed engines with rotating propellers. Inventoried with all parts, decals and instructions. Please NOTE that one prop blade is broken at the hub base but is present. This box has some of my favorite Jo Kotula boxart. Kotula originally did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

I have built these models and they look identical to the real prototypes. The kit has not been started and is complete with all parts, sealed smaller details and plans + instructions.
