1/400 721 Aurora USS Enterprise CVN65 Aircraft Carrier
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
Dated 1976. This is the 2nd and final issue of the original 1961 kit. It shows up less than the original issue because Aurora went out of business shortly after this issue. Overall, this is an excellent kit for that time. Aurora pulled out all the stops on this model with a very large tooling cost to match. This kit can easily be converted for water operation but those parts are not included in this issue. Features a large, color decal sheet with flight deck markings, moving elevators, twin Sea Sparrow launchers, deck tugs, display stand, detailed island structure with clear windows, large airwing with 40 aircraft including F-4 Phantom, F-8 Crusader, A-4 Skyhawk and two Hup Helicopters and more. The aircraft are nicely molded with recessed panel lines. All the ship parts are still sealed in the factory bags. The aircraft bag has been opened but it complete with all parts. NOTE: one A-4 Skyhawk has been built. Quality of assembly is 'professional' and there is no other assembly and zero painting. Decals are 'very good++' with bug damage to the backing paper only; the actual transfers are clean. The instructions have minor bug damage to the lower edge.
