Aurora Northrop P-61 Black Widow, 1/48, 392-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$145   

Still factory sealed but the seal has a small split at the lower left as shown and general light wear. This model features some of Jo Kotula's finest box artwork of a Black Widow raiding Japanese island at night and downing a Tony in flames. Dated 1960 but this issue is from the mid 1960s because of the lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo border. This large 1/48 scale kit is well detailed (for that time) with 'good' cockpit detail with three stations, rotating propellers and more. Although I cannot confirm it (since it is factory sealed), this model is usually molded in black and clear with a clear two piece stand with a triangle 'World' base.

All other parts were never internally sealed and have been inventoried complete. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacturer.
