Revell Bell P-39 Airacobra 'S' Kit, 1/45, H222-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-

Sold   

1955 'S' issue. Very nice kit for that time in near 1/48 scale. Features very fine recessed and raised panel lines, detailed pilot figure and optional position cockpit door and a belly drop tank. Molded in beautiful high-gloss olive drab and clear with the Revell 'Globe' stand. There has been no assembly. NOTE: this kit has minor, neat painting. The pilot's hands and boots and the propellor have been painted. You can strip this off with DOT 3 brake fluid, spray oven cleaner or other tested, safe plastic stripper. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 'excellent' condition decals and instructions. Richard Kishady did the famous painting for this kit and originally included German kill markings on the nose of the P-39. Very shortly after this, Revell began to export kits to Europe and many European countries had banned the swastika - so the box art was changed to Japanese kill markings, which is this issue.
