Air Lines Vickers Alcock & Brown Vimy - First Non-Stop Transatlantic Flight, 1/72, 12901

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

Sold   

Purchased new on December 3, 1966 at S.S. Kresge Company in Cleveland, Ohio. Very colorful box artwork issue and an excellent kit for that time. Nicely molded with separate ailerons, elevator and rudder. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who 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.
