104 Joe Ott Lockheed P-38 Lightning Bild-A-Set 36 inch Wingspan
Wood Model Kit
Dated 1944. Large 36 inch wingspan issue. The Joe Ott desinged 'Bilt-A-Set' series was the height of the classic stick and tissue flying model kits- not just for the box art, but also for the contents. The large wingpspan kits were the top of the Joe Ott line and had a price tag to match. They were out of reach of most children in the 1940s. Fewer were produced, which makes them harder to find today. In a time when most kits came only with white tissue, printed wood and plans, the Bilt-A-Set line box came chock full of parts and features like Assembly Line jigs for straight fuselage and nacelles, Speedlok Clamps, Die cut plywood or balsa parts sheet, die cut cardstock sheets, colored tissue, color printed national markings, clear window material, fully illustrated instructions and more. This kit has never been started. Parts are still all in the sheets; none have been punched out. 100% complete - all sheets and accessories present.
