1/50 5051-100 UPC F-86D Sabre Dog - (ex-Marusan)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
Scott Eidson hardbox artwork. The Marusan F-86D model is known for an amazing array of action features and accessories, and the UPC reissue includes them all. Kit has removable radome to display the radar, opening canopy, removable tail section with dolly and detailed jet engine with engine stand, operating leading edge slats, operating wing flaps, moving control surfaces, retracting landing gear, retracting/extending missile tray, boarding ladder, and extra missiles with missile cart. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. This is at least the third edition of this UPC kit as the first one had a rather graphic error - it pictured F-86 Saberjets on the box - NOT the F-86D 'Dog version. UPC stood for Universal Powermaster Corporation which was based out of New York City, NY. UPC did not cut their own molds, but bought kits already molded from other manufacturers and re-boxed the kits in the USA. Scott Eidson, the famous artist best known for his artwork with Revell, also did UPC box art in the 1960s. All UPC production ended in the 1970s.
