Academy Boeing B-52H Stratofortress with GMA-87A Skybolt / AGM-69 SRAM / AGM-28 Hound Dog / ADM-20 Quail Missiles - BAGGED - (ex Crown), 1/144, 4432

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

Sold   

NOTE: bagged kit. There is no box. The box is shown for reference only. Very popular kit from ex-Crown molds. From 1993. Excellent model with a huge array of extras. Has all recessed panel line detail. Features all the missiles listed and 5 extra clear display stands for each. Has decals for camo aircraft shown on the box artwork. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The Skybolt was a plan to deliver an ALBM (Air Launched Ballistic Missile) from a B-52 to greatly enhance it's survivability. Skybolt failed 5 of 6 initial tests, but finally was successful. However, the program was canceled due to the availability of the Polaris SLBM. Plans to equip the RAF Vulcan with Skybolt fell through and left with British with no modern nuclear force, causing them to adapt the Polaris SLBM and passing strategic nuclear capability from the RAF to the RN. AGM-28 Hound Dog was a sleek design to help B-52 penetrate thick SAM defenses. Hound Dog could use it's engines to help the B-52 during take off and then could be refueled from the B-52's tanks. This was an important point as the B-52 carried 2 of these missiles at 5 tons each. Hound Dog had a range of 200 to 500 miles (depending on launch height) at Mach 2.0 and an accuracy of one mile at those ranges. The warhead was 4 megatons. SRAM was a nuclear-armed short range missile carried in quantity of 20. SRAM was designed to blast holes in defenses in front of the B-52 and for the final target. Quail was a decoy that would mimic the B-52 with radar reflectors, infrared, radar repeaters and chaff decoys. Quail did reach operational status and operated on some Hound Dog-equipped B-52s.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold   

Still factory sealed and in amazing investment-grade 'Mint' condition. The seal is 100% intact. Rare box art version with perfect color and gloss. Hardbox is dated 1960 and it appears that this design was only issued for a 1 or 2 years at the very most.
