1/175 H207-98 Revell Boeing B-52 Giant Stratofortress - Pre 'S' Kit 'Short' Box 1st Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc+++, old
First release dated 1954 in the low profile box (1" high vs. 1.5" high for later issues). Includes correct first issue globe stand with three parts instead of four. The instructions also show the three piece stand. The box has excellent color and gloss, four solid corners and no tape, tape marks, price tags or tag marks. Never started. All small parts are still factory bag sealed, and the kit is complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This is such an early issue that it has the earliest decal sheet which has an error. There is suppose to be a triangle on each side of the fuselage near the cockpit. The original sheet has just one of these - Revell had to issue a second decal sheet with the kit with another triangle on it. That extra decal sheet is present in this kit.
