Renwal Nike Ajax MIM-3 Missile Store Display, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

$475   

For the advanced collector and investor. Very rare and in exceptional, all original condition. This is a Adams-factory built display built for hobby shop promotional use. The intention was simple- if hobby shops would purchase and display these dioramas, potential buyers would see the model build and immediately purchase the kit. This probably worked well; but the hitch was that these displays were expensive, so few hobby shops could afford them back in the 1950s. And of the ones made, there was heavy attrition. Parts broke, and when the new kits came out next year, they were thrown away to make room for more. Which makes the 'excellent' condition of this one even more exceptional. The actual model is very neatly built and painted, is missing no parts and has had no repairs. The paint is 'excellent+' and the decals are very good with the typical yellowing and wear as shown . The 3-D cardboard display is 'excellent.' There are no rips, tears, repair, tape or missing material. The only damage is a light crease near the words 'nike man' at the top center, a light crease at the top left, and a slight stain under the '81.' A superb 'no apologies' piece. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured. NOTE: It will be packed as well as possible in a double box, but be aware that some small parts or men may come loose during shipping and may have to repaired on your end.
