Topping Grumman C-2 Greyhound - Factory Desk Top Model, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

$125   

Recently I purchased a collection that contained an unusual number of undecorated factory desk top models. The modeler was a professional quality builder. When he could not find an aircraft in an injection molded kit, he would obtain a factory model from Topping or Precise, then finished them himself, modifying for accuracy and detail where needed. I have listed the manufacture as Topping, but please consider that tentative. It could be a Precise model. The model has been started. The work is professional quality. NOTE: the kit is missing two of the four vertical stabilizers. Fortunately, one of each is present so you could cast replacements. There are no propellers or stand.
