AMT-Hasegawa RA-5C Vigilante - Vietnam Camo Finish, 1/72, A658-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Limited issue 1970s kit when AMT contracted with Hasegawa. Hasegawa made kits in Japan, and AMT put them in boxes to market them in the USA. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag including decals and instructions. From Steve Payne and Wiki - The U.S. Navy experimented with aircraft camouflage and painted half of the aircraft of CVW-11 with dark green colours to blend in with the Vietnamese jungle. The results proved inconclusive for the U.S. Navy, whereas the U.S. Air Force concluded that the camouflage was effective. U.S. Navy planes would not be camouflaged until the 1980s. Box art is of U.S. Navy North American RA-5C Vigilante aircraft (BuNo 150834) of Heavy Reconnaissance Squadron RVAH-13 Bats in flight over the Gulf of Tonkin. 150834 was one of three replacement aircraft for RVAH-13 on this deployment, as the squadron had lost three of its six aircraft. RVAH-13 was assigned to Carrier Air Wing 11 (CVW-11) aboard the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk (CVA-63) for a deployment to Vietnam from 19 October 1965 to 13 June 1966.

Motor turns main and tail rotors with the batteries hid in the base. Sound unit makes "chop-chop" sound. 184 parts in 6 colors. The outer box is one of the best I have seen. This kit is exceptional in that is still Factory Sealed inside! This is the only time I have seen one sealed. It is similar to how the B-52 was internally sealed; the shrink wrap is on the outside, the 'show' parts on the top of the cardboard, and all other parts are stored below with the instructions, decals etc. I can look inside and see that the clear fuselage halves have no breaks or cracks, they are mint (damage was common to these).
