Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed
Still factory sealed. Includes color decals and instructions. This kit represented a puzzle to me at first. First, the kit is not listed in any of my guides. On first inspection, it appears to be the rare Revell first mold F-94 from the one piece box with no landing gear and one-piece wings. However, it could not be - it has the rivet detail of the 2nd Revell issue- but not the split the wings and added landing gear. It has come to light that Lincoln, from Hong Kong copied the 2nd edition Revell F-94 and left off the 'details' and changed the base to the typical Lincoln base. Plastic kit production was a sideline for Lincoln, and when production ended, the molds moved to Kader, also in Hong Kong. Kader reissued the entire Lincoln line in the mid 1970s. When Kader discontinued production in the late 1970s, ATP Inc in the USA bought the remaining kits and perhaps some molds. Eventually IM obtained many Kader molds - perhaps from ATP - and this issue was made.
