1/43 Ray Grumman F6F Hellcat With Testors Glue
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Rare kit, probably from the late 1940s but the actual date is not known. Large scale model that is solid wood. Features 'Ray-Ring' fuselage, a novel and useful feature to make fuselage finishing easier. Instead of using template to shape the fuselage, the templates have already been used and at those locations the fuselage is already carved to final shape! You simply carve in between the pre-carved section until they match - a very nice idea. Also includes 2D cut wings, fully finished wheels, clear vacuform canopy in excellent condition (known as the 'Ray-Closure'), very high quality printwood, full color decals, very nice full size plans including building instructions and even a never-used (but dry) tube of very early Testor's wood glue. The kit has never been started and is complete. Ray Aircraft Products Co. was located in West Chester Pennsylvania. They mention this is the '2nd of the RAY SOLID MODELS' so clearly there is at least one more. Little else is known.
