Revell A3J Vigilante - 'S' Issue - A-5A Nuclear Bomber, 1/83, H196-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Rare model from 1959 and the last "S" kit issued by Revell. The box top is in investment-grade 'near mint' condition. It has fantastic color and gloss, four solid corners, no fading or stains and no price tags or tag marks. Flaws include isolated very light wear and on the lower long side panel there is a small (1/2 x 1.4 inch) litho tear from the original factory sealing tape. This model features opening tandem canopies, moving control surfaces, detailed, removable jet engines and two pilots. As the last "S" kit, this kit also incorporated a critical improvement for the time that would become standard only recently: all recessed detail. The entire kit has recessed panel lines and rivet detail- no raised marks. It has an attention to detail that is lacking in many older Pre-S and S kits. Molded in the correct gloss light gray and clear with the "Globe" clear stand. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Revell F-94C Starfire Intereceptor - Pre S Issue, 1/56, H210-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

1954 Pre-S release and the third issue of this historical model. Features the amazing, classic 1950s box art that has made the Pre S and S kits so valuable and collectible today. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The first issue was in the simple one-piece box and Revell quickly converted to this two-piece box as it was much more durable and a full-color lithographed 'slick' could be used. For the second issue, Revell added rivet and raised panel line detail as well as landing gear, and went to this box and H210-79 kit number. The famous 'Globe' clear stand was added, but the 2nd issue has the rare one piece stand arm and the instructions reflecting that. The 3rd issue (this kit) is identical to the 2nd issue except that the 'Globe' stand was changed to the sturdy 3 piece arm version.

Life-Like Combat Jeep And Trailer - With 3 GIs - (ex Revell), 1/40, 09652

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Rare model from the original 1950s Revell "S" Issue molds. Very well detailed featuring rotating wheels, radio, jerry cans, detailed chassis and suspension, tilting windshield, driver/soldier and general figure, detachable trailer with rotating wheels, generator, cable reel, packs, tool box and more. Molded in olive drab plastic and with metal axles. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. These molds must have had a very interesting history. The molds were cut in 1955 or 1956, either at Adams or by one of Revell's contractors. It appeared to be part of the Adams/Revell 1/40 line but Adams never issued the kit. UPC (Universal Power Master) had use of these molds in the 1960s are perhaps the early 1970s; however, the molds were probably in Japan as most if not all the UPC production occured there. Things get even more interesting with this Life-Like issue, which must have been after the UPC operation ceased operation. How Life-Like came across the molds is unfortunately unknown but it may have been in a bulk-purchase of molds that were located overseas. This is simply conjecture, however.

Molded in white and clear with the Aurora 'Triangle World' base. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
