1/28 F2-149 Monogram De Havilland L-20 Beaver Bild'n Fly Series - 21 inch Wingspan Flying Model
Wood and Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
Rare. Purchased new on April 1, 1966 at Franks Model Shop in Cleveland, Ohio. The box copyright is dated 1960. This kit is from the large 'Bild'n Fly' series. This series was Monogram's most elaborate, colorful and realistic flying models. It was short-lived however, as by 1960 static (non-flying) plastic kits had become the #1 hobby of boys in the USA. The Bild'n Fly series included simplified assembly - no ribs or stringers. All balsa parts are color laminated and die cut - no tissue covering and all decoration is built in full color. There are 14 highly detailed plastic parts such as cowl, wheels, prop, oil cooler, etc. The windows are clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.
