1/48 103-69 Aurora British SE-5 Scout - White Rectangle Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+
Very rare version and the rarest of all Aurora SE-5s Note that the rectangular background for the oval 'Famous Fighters' logo is white and not yellow as with the more common one. They are identical other than the background color for the lower-right rectangle. The hardbox is dated 1956 with the original Jim Cox box art but with the 1957 oval 'Famous Fighters' logo. The original rectangle 'Northern Lights' logo has been neatly blotted out with a white rectangle of the same size. The fact that the price is still 69 cents (as the original issue) means this issue is very late 1956 or very early '57. Molded in gloss olive green and black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the box has the large tear as shown just behind the engine exhaust.
