1/48 55A-69 Aurora Messerschmitt ME-109 Famous Fighters of All Nations - (Bf-109)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
Very rare version with the Bf-109s flying over a period town. Second issue of this famous kit, most likely from 1954 and possibly into 1955. Last Aurora Bf-109 with swastikas on the box art, molded into the vertical stabilizer, on the instructions and on the decals. Aurora modified the molds for this issue, including landing gear and wing-mounted bombs. Molded in the correct gloss burgundy and clear. Never started and 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This artwork is by Jim Cox. According to his son, Art Cox, and the village is most likely a rendition of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and a stylized Philadelphia skyline and older buildings in Camden, NJ in the foreground. This kit must be shipped insured.
