1/121 290-39 Aurora Convair F-102 Dart - (YF-102 Delta Dagger)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Hardbox issue dated 1957, but from the mid 1960s due to the oval logo with the blue outline. Small scale kit with dramatic Jo Kotula box artwork is nicely molded with clear canopy, full landing gear and display stand. This is a model of the very early YF-102 prototype with the straight (non-area rule) fuselage. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. In the late 1950s Aurora began issuing a series of inexpensive (usually starting at 29 cent) small scale kits that were designed to sell at almost any type of retail location. The line was successful and further expanded into the early 1960s. When Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they fit nicely into this established line.
