7100-1098 Cox Cox Curtiss A-25 (SB2C Helldiver) Army Dive Bomber with Dropping Bomb - Gas Powered Control Line Airplane
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Rare pre zip-code (<1964) .049 gas powered control line aircraft with a 20 inch wingspan. And it drops bombs in flight! The Blue Navy Helldiver version can be found, but this is the rare olive drab Army version. Even more unusual, it is mint in the box, straight from old store stock. The outer box has brilliant color, all solid corners and no tape. It does have light wear, as these thin boxes usually do. Inside, the model is as new except the adjustment knob has come off the mixture control. Other than that, the aircraft is flawless, just as it left the factory. Since the aircraft has never been flown or started, it is clean as new. The internal packing material that holds the aircraft in place is as new and is not torn. The accessories - the dropping bomb, pilot, antenna and cables are still in the factory sealed bag. The U-control handle is still affixed to the box side as it was at the factory. The paperwork is complete and mint also, including the instructions, the 'Bob and jack start their Cox Thimble-Drome Plane...' cartoon, yellow fuel use warning sheet and 'Inspected by 114' paper. It would be difficult to find a better example.
