This is a set of 14 unopened Tru-Flight reissues of the incredibly popular 1944 line. In 1944 the General Mills Company had and Englishman named Rigby design the models. General Mills was the sponsor of the Jack Armstrong Radio Show, and they used this to introduce a series of full color cardstock models of the most famous WWII fighters. Thousands of these were given away. They flew so well that a National Championship Contest was organized where awards were given for the best maneuverability and longest flights. The aircraft were re-introduced in 1966, and these excellent full color reproductions are from 1986. They have never been started and are complete.
