502 Joe Ott Joe Ott Bild-A-Set 30 inch wingspan Douglas SBD Dauntless Dive Bomber - Balsa Wood Flying Model Airplane Kit
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Rare 30 inch wingspan kit dated 1944. The Joe Ott designed 'Bilt-A-Set' series was the height of the classic stick and tissue flying model kits- not just for the box art, but also for the contents. The large wingspan kits were the top of the Joe Ott line and had a price tag to match. They were out of reach of most children in the 1940s. Fewer were produced, which makes them harder to find today. In a time when most kits came only with white tissue, printed wood and plans, the Bilt-A-Set line box came chock full of parts and features like Assembly Line jigs for straight fuselage and nacelles, Speedlok Clamps, Die cut plywood or balsa parts sheet, die cut cardstock sheets, colored tissue, color printed national markings, clear window material, fully illustrated instructions and more. This kit has not been started. No parts have been removed from the sheets and it is 100% complete.
