1/103 383-249 Aurora Convair 880 Jetliner Delta
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++
Still in the factory seal - the seal has a 2 inch split on one long side and a 6 inch splir on one short end. Rare 1960 Delta Airlines issue. The Convair 880 and it's near sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs.
