Allyn Douglas F3D Skyknight - Factory Desktop Model, 1/48

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

$59   

Rare, large scale factory-assembled and decaled model. This was given to a contractor who worked on this and many other 1950s US Navy aircraft projects. He collected these models. This one has great color and gloss and 'very good' decals but NOTE: the rudder came out at one point and he glued it back in. Quality of assembly is only 'good.' It is straight and true, but there is certainly visible glue as you can see. Also, NOTE: the stand is not original. It is a period stand, but the original correct stand is missing.
