1/48 22A-79 Aurora Grumman F9F Panther Jet - Famous Fighters of All Nations
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+
Very rare 'Aurora Line' logo version from 1954-1957. This is actually the 3rd release of this kit and is the first issue of the Panther from the West Hempstead factory. Correctly high gloss deep blue and clear plastic, landing gear and rockets and the large, clear rectangle stand and stand arm. The instructions show this correct rectangle-based stand and are dated 1956 with the oval 'Famous Fighters' logo (which is certainly one of the first appearances of this logo, proving that it came out at the end of 1956). The decals are also correct for this issue. They are marked 'Tatem Company' and were issued without a stand decal. Never started and 100% complete with all correct parts, stand, decals and instructions present.
