1/48 007-150 Fuji Boeing F4B-4 - VF-1B 'High Hats' Squadron Leader's Aircraft from CV-3 USS Saratoga - (F4B4)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
Very cleanly molded by Fuji and includes the decals listed. The kit has never been started and is still sealed in the factory bag with the Fuji bag header. Includes decals and instructions. For decades it was assumed that this kit was from ex-Aurora molds. However, Jean-Claude Mermet has done a piece-by-piece comparison and sent photos - clearly they are not the same kit. It is clear that the Japanese-produced F4B-4 is a copy of the Aurora kits parts, but they are created from different molds. The design of a large number of parts is different, as well as the ejector pin locations and even the 'tree' structure.
