Revell Convair R3Y-2 Tradewind - 'S' Issue No Rivet Detail - (R3Y2), 1/168, H238-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-

$129   

Fresh from a long-closed hobby shop. First issue is dated 1956 and has the very colorful 'S' artwork that has made these kits so desirable today. This is the true first issue as it has no rivet detail (Revell later modified the molds with rivet detail to make it look more 'intricate'). The box has factory-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no fading, stains, rips or price tags and no tape (other than marks from the original factory sealing tape, of course). The only flaws are very light creasing at the far right (very hard to see) and very light general wear. Nicely molded for the time with all recessed panel lines, opening front cargo door, drive-off ramp, rotating counter-rotating dual propellers and the clear Revell 'Globe' display stand. Molded in a stunning high gloss dark navy blue and clear. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
