StromBecker Chance Vought F7U Cutlass, C49-89

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$75   

Beautiful kit from the 1950s made of quality hardwood - no balsa. The carving is done to the final shape. When complete it makes an impressive model and comes with a unique display stand. Features all carved and smooth wood parts, clear plastic canopy, full color decals, glue, sandpaper and special display stand. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts and plans. Please note that the box has significant wear; ideal builder kit. 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.
