1/50 5055-100 UPC P-38L Lightning - (ex Marusan) - USAAF
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
UPC's 1960s reissue of this larger scale model from the original Marusan molds. This ideal 'Classic Builder' features very fine raised surface detail, full landing gear, pilot figure, drop tanks, underwing rockets and more. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. UPC stood for Universal Powermaster Corporation which was based out of New York City, NY. UPC did not cut their own molds, but bought kits already molded from other manufacturers and re-boxed the kits in the USA. Scott Eidson, the famous artist best known for his artwork with Revell, also did UPC box art in the 1960s. All UPC production ended in the 1970s.
