1/101 5067-100 UPC B-29 Superfortress - (ex-Marusan)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
From about 1965 and issued from original Marusan molds. This is a nice, early model featuring moving control surfaces, rotating props and wheels, cockpit detail, crew, full landing gear and more. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: one prop blade is clearly broke at the hub. It is present and will need to be repaired. 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.
