StromBecker Lockheed F-94 Jet, C-43

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$79   

Excellent 1950s kit. The carving is done to the final shape. When complete it makes an impressive desk top display. Features all high-quality hardwood main parts, clear plastic canopy, full color decals, glue, wood filler, sandpaper and special display stand. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts and plans. Box displays better than the 'good-' grade but is graded such because there are many pieces of clear tape on the short box ends. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacture. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - you only had to glue, sand and paint to finish them.
