1/45 H222-89 Revell Bell P-39 Airacobra With Swastika Kill Markings 'S' Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
1955 'S' first issue. This is the rare issue with Swastika Kill Markings on the box artwork. Richard Kishady did the famous painting for this kit and originally included German kill markings on the nose of the P-39. Very shortly after this, Revell began to export kits to Europe, but many European countries had banned the swastika. Revell changed the box art to Japanese kill markings, which made it legal to sell in those countries. Very nice kit for that time in near 1/48 scale. Features very fine recessed and raised panel lines, detailed pilot figure and optional position cockpit door and a belly drop tank. Molded in beautiful high-gloss olive drab and clear with the Revell 'Globe' base. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Box would grade higher but it has a crease along the lower front.
