Comet North American F-51 Mustang Struct-O-Speed - Coke Bottle Issue, G11-15

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$26   

Dated 1950. Comet advertises that the Struct-O-Speed series 'Puts Itself Together...That Quick!' on the box top. These kits were very highly prefabricated for their time, and in comparison to the regular stick and tissue models, the claim is not unfounded. This is a small-scale, rubber powered free-flight kit with a wingspan of 8.5 inches. This is a 3D kit (not a profile model) of all die-cut balsa. It does not use any tissue covering as the wood is all external surfaces. Includes illustrated instructions and cut-out insignia. Complete and never started.
