This is a really scarce modeling product. Golden Wings was a "cottage industry" outfit apparently set up in the 1980s to celebrate the US Navy's Blue Angels aerobatic team. It issued several kits designed to help modelers to build accurate replicas of the Blue Angels' lesser known aircraft, and this is one of those products. This offering--untouched and complete--allows the builder to build a model of "Beetle Bomb," the North American SNJ-5 two-seat trainer aircraft used by the Blues for public relations purposes in the late 1940s. It includes a color brochure on the SNJ-5, decal sheets providing accurate markings, and a Hawk Models SNJ molded in yellow plastic. Hard to come by for sure, and therefore not only buildable, but very highly collectable. Here's your chance to add something to your stash that's really, really unusual. Happy modeling!

I'm happy to ship worldwide, but please wait for my invoice so that I can quote you actual postage costs. Payment should be made within 5 business days, and I prefer Paypal if at all possible for its simplicity.

I'll be posting a number of items in the next few days, so please check out my other listings. I'm be happy to combine p&h costs for multiple buys.

The impact of the recent earthquake and tsunami have been very hard upon northern Japan. I am donating 10% of this sale to the relief efforts.
