1/32 H251-2000 Revell Bristol Beaufighter Mk IF - Flt./Lt. John ' Cat's Eyes' Cunningham's Aircraft and RAF Aircraft 'PNB' - Revell Japan Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good+
Rare 1975 Japan issue with unique and beautiful box artwork. As with most Japan issues, this one contains extra features not available in other issues. First, there are decals for a total of two aircraft. Second, the huge 16.5" x 11.5" instruction front page is a full-color, glossy painting guide for the model and also has a large color photo of the assembled kit. Large-scale and well detailed (for that time) model of the British night fighter with airborne interception radar. The Beaufighter was flown by aces such like Flt./Lt. "Cat's Eyes" Cunningham, whose markings are included. His final score stood at 20 victories and his aircraft is one that can be depicted in this model. Features detailed Bristol Hercules engines, removable cowling, two flight crew, optional position landing gear, full crew cockpits and radar antenna. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.
