1/45 H222-89 Revell Bell P-39 Airacobra 'S' Kit
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Mint
Early Revell 'S' kit from about 1955-56 in investment grade condition. The box is has brilliant color and gloss with no flaws. Oddly enough, there are not even any factory tape marks. This is the second issue of this kit which has Japanese kill markings on the nose of the aircraft in the artwork. Richard Kishady did the famous painting for this kit and originally included German kill markings on the nose of the P-39. Very shortly after this, Revell began to export kits to Europe. Shortly after World War II, many European countries banned the swastika. Revell changed the box art to Japanese kill markings, making the kit legal to sell in those countries. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts/decals and instructions present. Inside, the kit has never been started and is complete. All small parts are still sealed in the factory bag. The decals are flat and have very little yellowing. The instructions are mint. It would be difficult to find a better example of this early kit.
