1/48 40A-79 Aurora Grumman F6F Hellcat - Famous Fighters of All Nations
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc+++
Third issue of this rare kit. Oddly enough, this one is the rarest of them all. The box is in remarkable 'Excellent++' condition with like-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs, no tears or missing litho, no tape or tape marks (other than the factory sealing tape, of course), no price tags or tag marks, no fading and no stains. The flaws are general very light edge wear. The 4 box sides are in the same condition as the top; the box tray (bottom box) is in 'near mint' condition. The box top is copyrighted 1956, but this issue is from 1957 for the debut of the new logo. For this release, Aurora kept the original issue box art but with these changes from the second issue: the old logo was replaced with the 'Famous Fighters' Sunburst Oval on a yellow rectangle background and the white 'price circle' was removed. The kit is molded in the correct beautiful metallic dark blue and clear and has the early rectangular clear display stand, correct decals and correct instructions. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.
