1/72 F239 Frog DH Hornet F.Mk.3 Fighter - No 41 Sq RAF 1950 or No. 19 Sq 1950
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Red Series issue includes parts and decals to make either aircraft and an excellent full color painting guide on the bottom of the box for both aircraft. Quality Frog kit with fine panel lines and no rivet detail so it builds up to a realistic model. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Hornets took part in a major incident in US/UK/PRC relations on July 23, 1954, when PLAAF La-7s (or -11s) shot down Cathay Pacific DC-4 VR-HEU near Hong Kong. Hornets from 80 Squadron Kai Tak (not depicted in the Frog kit decals) are scrambled and the first to locate the survivors. Two days later, 7th Fleet AD-1s splash two Lavochkins in the same area.
