1/72 F165 Frog Bristol 138/A Trail Blazers Issue - Green Series
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
Very nicely done kit in the Frog tradition. On the 28th of September, 1936, the Bristol 138/A climbed to an altitude of 49,967 feet to establish a new world altitude record. In 1937 it climbed to 53,967 feet where the windscreen cracked. The pilot was saved by the pressure suit he was wearing. NOTE: this kit has "professional" quality minor assembly as follows: bulkhead, floor and radiator baffle installed in one fuselage side. There is no other assembly. The actual aircraft has been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: missing display stand.
