Nitto Mini Gappa

Nitto Mini Gappa - (Art No. 330-50)

The Nitto Mini Gappa has probably the crudest box art of the entire Nitto Gamera/Gappa series, with the exception of the header cards for the vinyls (I'll post those later).

The mini Gappa model was available for 10 years (1970-1980). Like the mini Gamera kit featured below, it was released initially with a friction gear (pull back) motor, but later would be released sans the motor.

This mini kit was the only Nitto Gappa model that had its wings extended. All other versions had the wings folded down.
