1/94 Revell 1958 Piedmont Airlines Fairchild F-27 Friendship Decals
Cardstock Paper Model Kit
Rare Revell / Colortone decal set in 'excellent++' condition for the Revell "S" Friendship. Fresh from climate controlled storage. This set sports the very colorful original paint scheme on the 1958 Piedmont launch of the F-27. Even includes the round stand decal. Fairchild had obtained a license to build the F-27 in the USA at about the same time that Fokker started up mass production. As it happened, Fairchild put aircraft into service before Fokker's F-27 rolled off the assembly line. Piedmont took deliver of the Fairchild built N2701R in October of 1958. They had been purchased as DC-3 replacements and flew up and down the eastern USA out of the Raleigh hub.
