1/25 F&B 1953 Chrysler Custom Imperial - Four Door Sedan - Wood And Metal Model
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Good+
Very rare model from F&B Model Aircraft. In about 1953, F&B decided to branch out and produced at least three car kits - this '53 Imperial, a Jaguar XK120 and a Nash Rambler Convertible. The Imperial model measured out fairly close to 1/25 or 1/24 scale and features die cut balsa wood, pre-cut balsa blocks, wood stock as required, stamped aluminum bumpers, grill, bumper guards, emblems, tail lights, head lights, hubcaps and door handles, plastic steering wheel, completely finished rubber wheels, die-cut clear windows and light lenses and a large fold-out, highly illustrated step-by-step instruction sheet. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes all paperwork. This kit is for modelers experienced in building all-wood kits from the 1940s and 1950s. It is not for beginners and scratch building skills are a must. F&B was located in Denver, Colorado.
