1/48 55-59 Aurora Messerschmitt Me-109 - Brooklyn Issue Bf-109 - Famous Fighters of All Nations
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
Very rare first issue. Of Aurora's 'Original Brooklyn 8,' this is usually considered the hardest one to find. Inside, the kit is 100% correct with no rivet detail, no bombs and no landing gear. The color is the unique first run non-metallic medium red with clear canopy and stand. The stand is the correct square one marked 'Brooklyn.' The instructions are correct Brooklyn also, and the decals are the proper early 'Tatem Company' issue with the swastika. The box has very good color and gloss, no fading, no tears, no price tags or tag damage, no tape (except for the factory sealing tape, of course) and is 100% intact with no split corners or repairs but only grades 'good' due to the scuffing on the left top side as shown, the litho chips (to the left of 'scale', below 'model' and on the far right lower corner as shown) and some small similar chips on the sides. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts in perfect condition, amazing 'near mint' decals (best I have ever seen on a Brooklyn issue and 'very good++' instructions with yellowing as the main flaw. This kit must be shipped double boxed and insured.
