Revell Mickey Thompson Figure And Challenger I - Worlds Fastest Car 406.6 MPH, 1/25, 85-4918

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Includes a beautifully factory-painted, 1/25 scale resin figure of Mickey Thompson. This is the 2012 reissue of the original 1962 kit. When released in 1962, this car was one of the revolutionary Revell kits that broke new ground in 1/25 level of detail. In Tom Graham's interviews with Jim Keeler, the kit designer, the molds cost $80,000 in 1961 - twice that of a normal car kit. To design the kit, Thompson's mechanics gave the Revell team full run of the vehicle and even disassembled it for them. The model features removable body panels, four super detailed Pontiac V-8 engines with 18 parts each, complete chassis, suspension and drive train detail, water tanks, fuel tanks, parachute holder, cockpit and much more. The level of detail is astounding for that time. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
