1/48 282-149 Renwal Curtiss Goshawk F11C-2 Aeroskin - USS Saratoga (F11C2)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Fair
This is one of Renewal's famous Aeroskin kits, and a rare large one in 1/48. Features markings for the aircraft of "High Hat Squadron," VF-1B commander Seligman aboard the USS Saratoga in the early 1930s. The model has an injection molded inner structure of ribs and stringers like a real aircraft, then the modeler covers it with provided authentic pre-colored Aeroskin fabric. There is no painting needed as elaborate finishes are printed directly on the Aeroskin covering. This results a very realistic and colorful model. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and Aeroskin and instructions are present. NOTE the box is rough and missing the left end panel, but the kit inside is in fine condition and an ideal builder.
