1/48 209-200 Hawk Lockheed U-2 Spyplane
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc++
Dated 1962 and most likely the very first issue because it is a hardbox and has the price prefix on the kit number. The box is graded 'excellent++' and while not perfect, it is one of the finest one I have seen. This model is from the mid 1960s and the artwork is by Bill Campbell. Features a 22 inch wingspan, fine raised panel lines, 'good' cockpit with pilot, two piece canopy that can be displayed opened or closed, full landing gear and outriggers, standing pilot, optional position air brakes, optional antenna and 'sniffer' pod and more. This kit is actually the basis for the Testors U-2 variants in this same scale. Molded in a very dark blue and clear with a large orange stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
