The Captain America serial, made by Republic, is a less-than-faithful adaptation of the comics.. Cap's secret identity is completely different, there's no shield or Bucky, no Super Soldier Serum... basically just the costume and name!

This was Aurora's 1970s reissue of their 1960s Captain America model kit. The reissue featured new box art by John Romita, plus the instruction book was also a comic story that included a backdrop for the model!
