Century plane kits from Taiwan?
Anyone heard of these?
I'm not able to find anything on them in John Burns "Plastic aircraft kits of the 20th century and beyond"

Nope, its a little soft plastic green thing around 1/72 scale I think.
The box top is a copy from a 1/48 Hasegawa kit

There are some Century 1/72 jets on eBay. They are old and from some Asian country (I can't tell exactly where). The box art is reminiscent of old Hasegawa and the kits are a Skyhawk, Hunter, Mirage III and MiG-19. The kits look similar to the old 60s Hasegawa or Frog. The MiG 19 looks like the old 1/72 Central kit. It may be that Central is Century as the kit and box art are the same. Central made a few kits some 45-50 years ago but they were nothing spectacular. But, they were not too bad either for the late 60s. They were about on par with Frog etc.
