1/72 PA215 Monogram B-52 Stratofortress with Jet Sound Vietnam Camouflage Issue Factory Sealed
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed NM++
Factory sealed kit in investment-grade condition. These models were designed with a major selling point - an internal parts display that could be seen by potential modelers at the store. The display showed major parts of the kit, glue and motor and called out numerous selling points. Then the factory shrink-wrapped these kits inside. Then box lid was installed and it was not shrink-wrapped again, so that the kit could be inspected at the point of sale. Outer cover is near mint; inner box is mint and sealed. Rare issue has Vietnam-style boxart on a high-gloss box. 2nd release of this kit and the last with 'Jet Sound'. At this point (1968), Monogram had ceased making 'Monoglue', but the B-52 presentation cardboard has a spot for glue and it was designed to be seen - so the factory put in a tube of 1968 Testors glue with rubber bands in the Monoglue spot. Contains 207 parts. Very nicely detailed. Features crew of three, detailed cockpit, elevating and traversing rear turret, opening and closing bomb bay doors, operating wing flaps, operating spoilers, optional position entry hatch and landing gear, and optional parts to display one nacelle open to show the jet engine.
