1/32 M552-168 Renwal M51 (D48) 75mm Anti-Aircraft Gun SKYSWEEPER
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
First issue. Fantastic kit with 134 parts and a Combat Crew of 5. Kit has almost all the moving features of the real weapon. NOTE: there is no assembly, but the boot, faces and hands of the crew have been neatly painted. NOTE: missing #73 hatch. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions. The Skysweeper was a 45 round-per-minute that was teamed with the Nike Ajax in the late 1950s/early 1960s to defend America against Soviet Attack. The gun system was radar controlled and fully mobile. It could be set up on any terrain and ready to fire in 2 minutes. The unit was considered very advanced an complex at the time; it took army maintenance crews 37 weeks each to train on the system at Aberdeen.
