Revell Hawk Surface-to-Air Guided Missile MIM-23 - 'S' Issue, 1/40, H1817-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$165   

Rare. First issue dated 1958 and featuring some of Revell's finest box top artwork. This was a very well molded model for that time and includes 3 Hawk missiles, 4 man crew, elevating and swiveling launcher, rubber tires that rotate, control panel hatches open and has separate radar scope equipment. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and and instructions present. NOTE: the decals are flat and intact but at one point they were lightly stuck to the instructions. They are not stuck now but there is residue from the instructions on the decal sheet. The box is only 'good' and has general wear on the top and all sides.

Revell US Army Tactical Missiles Little John and Dart with Launchers - 'S' Issue, 1/40, H1812-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$125   

First issue from 1958. The box is in superb 'excellent++' condition with like-new color and gloss, four solid corners, not price tags or tag marks, no tape or tape marks (other than the factory sealing tape), no fading and no litho tears. The only flaws are a light crease at the top left and very light general wear. Little John was a light-weight free-flight rocket that was highly mobile. It could be pulled on its launcher or transported by helicopter. Length was 12 feet long and the warhead was atomic. The Dart was a very early, five foot long wire-guided anti-tank missile with a solid propellant rocket motor. An optical rangefinder was used for guidance. Both models are well detailed. The Dart includes four missiles, one launcher, three stands, decals, one optical guidance unit and a crew of three. The Little John includes a detailed launcher with elevating rails, movable support legs, decals and crew of three. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Revell Bendix Talos US Navy Missile SAM-N-6 RIM-8 - 'S' Issue, 1/40, H1808-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$145   

First and only issue of this rare kit. Late 1950s hardbox with the 'S' logo on the sides and famous box art. Large scale and well detailed for that time featuring forward fins that move, working launcher and three man crew. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Please note that the box has very good color and gloss but is graded 'good-' because there is remains of a price tag and tear behind the missiles back fins at the right.

Revell B-29 Giant Superfortress Short Box With Early One-Piece Stand Arm - Pre 'S' Issue, 1/135, H208-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$159   

Very rare 1954 true first issue in the 'short' box. Has early 1st issue stand with a one-piece stand arm (three prongs at the top) and the correct instructions clearly showing this stand. This stand tended to break and Revell quickly replaced it with the two-piece arm version. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Box art shows tail number 294106, a B-29A-30-MN built at Renton, WA.

Revell Convair B-36 Giant Bomber - Pre-'S' Issue, 1/184, H205-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$149   

1954 issue of this classic kit. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear and with the famous clear 'Revelving Swivel Base.' The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: the box would grade higher than 'excellent' but there is a very, very light stain below the front of the aircraft. It is difficult to see. This kit has an interesting history. The first issue came out in the 'short' hardbox that had the full version of this artwork with a port and ocean scene in the background. The first version also had the one-piece stand arm and the instructions that reflected that. The second issue had the same artwork, but with a completely different background that gave better contrast. There may be a 'one-piece' stand arm version in this revised artwork, but I have yet to see one.

Revell USS Missouri Narrow Box - First Issue Pre 'S' Kit, 1/535, H301-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$129   

First release 1953 hardbox pre 'S' kit and the first ship model that Revell cut their own molds for. Earlier Revell ship releases were Ex-Gowland and Gowland molds for the small scale sailing ship series. This box is in 'Very Good++' condition which is rare. Color is good, all four corners are solid , there is no missing litho, no price tags or tag marks and the only signs of tape are from the narrow factory sealing tape. The box does have general wear, especially on some corners and some creases on the lower long side. Inside, the kit is molded in medium gray. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete including all parts, decals, flag sheet and instructions. The early style flag sheet is in 'excellent' condition and the instructions are the correct very large format for this issue and in 'excellent+' condition with the typical age yellowing. Please note that Revell did not furnish decals with this issue.

Revell Convair B-58 Hustler - 'S' Issue, 1/94, H252-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$139   

Dated 1957 and has the dramatic box art that has made these kits so valuable today. Please note this is a very rare '129' cent kit number variation (produced in the USA for domestic sale), which probably puts the actual date of production @ 1959. It was an excellent model for that time featuring very fine recessed and raised panel lines, full crew, three opening cockpit hatches, rotating wheels, 'The Pod' for weapons and fuel and well detailed gear struts and braces. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Revell USS Norton Sound Rocket Launcher Missile Test Ship, 1/424, H331-169

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$550   

Fresh from a long-closed down hobby shop. Very rare kit from 1956; the molds were altered to make the class seaplane tender, which made any reissue impossible. The box has wonderful color and gloss, four solid corners, no creases, no fading, rips or tears, no stains, no price tag or tag marks and no tape or tape marks - this box even escaped the factory tape sealing machine! There is very light general wear and moderate wear to the lower right short side for 1" by 1/16". The prototype Norton Sound was originally a seaplane tender and was converted to an ocean-going laboratory for development and testing of guided missiles and rockets. This ship was key in the Navy's move into the guided missile age. The model features working cranes, operating launching platform for the Viking missile, Terrier with launcher, Jeeps and Lark missile. The kit has never been started. Inside, it is exactly as it left the factory. The small parts and decals are still factory sealed in the Revell clear bag. The larger parts were never sealed and are inventoried complete. Includes flag sheet and instructions. Instructions are in 'near mint' condition with the typical age yellowing as the only flaw. Decals are still factory sealed and would grade the same as the instructions.
