Revell 1/424 USS Norton Sound AVM-1 Rocket Launcher, H331-169 plastic model kit

1/424 H331-169 Revell USS Norton Sound AVM-1 Rocket Launcher

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Very rare kit from 1956; molds were altered to make the class seaplane tender, which made any reissue impossible. Excellent stain-free box with brilliant color and gloss. There are no tape or price tags or similar marks. This Norton Sound was originally a seaplane tender and was converted to an ocean-going laboratory for development and testing of guided missiles and rockets. This ship was key in the Navy's move into the guided missile age. Model features working cranes, operating launching platform for the Viking missile, Terrier with launcher, Jeeps and Lark missile. Inside, the kit as if left the factory. I has never been started. All small parts are still factory bag sealed. Decals and flag sheet, as well as the instructions, are like new with typical yellowing as the only flaw.
