1/125 PL800-98 Comet Boeing 707 Stratotanker (367-80 - Dash 80) - BAGGED
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: No Box
NOTE: Bagged kit - there is no box. The box is shown for reference only. Comet originally began model production in 1929 with a line of balsa flying models. In the mid-1950s Comet made a beautiful line of small and medium scale aircraft and missile models with colorful boxes. The early issues were in one-piece 'flip-top' boxes, and the later issues and releases were in standard two-piece 'hardboxes' with a lithograph slick glued to the top box. In 1963 Comet sold the plastic kit molds to Aurora, who reissued some but not all of the kits. There were two Boeing 707 models made. This is the two-piece box larger scale (1/125) 'Stratotanker' - not really a tanker model at all, but a nice kit of the famous Dash-80 Prototype Air Force Tanker/707, which lead to the world's first commercially-successful airliner and the legendary KC-135 air-to-air refueler. Well molded with fine recessed panel lines, full landing gear and prototype decals. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: one lower wing is a gray color instead of silver. It is from another issue of this same kit.
