For more sales they can follow on with "D" or "J" kit that has jets.  Could be jets are in painting and got cropped out for "B" kit.

From the classic National Lampoon article "Battling Buses of WW 2" if memory serves. I'd almost swear it's Bruce McCall, but I can't make out a signature.

The artist is Russ Heath, a frequent National Lampoon (and comic book) artist. Very good WWII artwork. Here's a color version:



He also did the artwork for the ads for those annoying 1" tall but flat toy soldiers that were always advertised in the back of comic books.

That's from Clint Eastwood's "The Gauntlet" (1977)

"A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive. "

Indeed it is. One of my favorite Eastwood movies for some reason.

All some of us want is a kit of the GM New Look bus. Or, as it's most famously known...
Bus from Speed! (preferably with Keanu figure)
With warm regards from Whanganui, New Zealand

A Sandra figure wouldn't go astray, either. ;)
