1/27 Burkard Grumman F3F-2 Fighter Deluxe Kit
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Very rare, high quality kit from about 1942/43. Of the early solid aircraft kits, Burkard holds the distinction of being the largest, best made and most complete kits. This one is no exception. Big 1/27 scale model features a hardwood fully carved-to-shape fuselage that even has the cockpit cut out, beautiful spun metal engine cowling, excellent profile-cut hardwood wings, horizontal and vertical stabilizers, fully formed main and tail wheels, other wood stock as required, clear celluloid for the canopy, metal foil for canopy frame and other details, color insignia (damaged but all present), factory glass bottles of glue and dope and very large, superb full size blue print plans that include the instrument panel, details and drawings to make a detailed engine, numerous cross sections for templates, rigging details, seat construction and even text instructions. Never started and complete. This wartime kit even comes with 'Balsa Wood has gone to war' flyers! Consolidated Model Engineering Co, of 3079 Third Avenue, NY, NY, manufactured the famous Burkard Giant Solids, Bay Ridge Super Gas Jobs and Jackson's Strato Spear. They also distributed Bantam engine factory replacement parts.
