1/48 D30 Strombecker Bell X-1B Supersonic Rocket
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Strombecker was very well known for producing the finest pre-carved hardwood aircraft and missile kits, but they had a very short journey into the plastic model field. After making the Sea Dart kit in 1956, they added four more for a total of 5 injection molded aircraft kits. All were discontinued in the mid 1960s. One kit is this excellent X-1B. It is the rarer of the two releases as it contains the pilots bust molded into the fuselage (the other one does not). Includes full instructions with three photos of the real aircraft, full color decals in excellent condition and an application for the Strombecker Model-Makers Club. Kit features include landing gear, clear canopy and display stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: one pitot tube has the very tip broken off and that tip is missing.
