1/547 H307-249 Revell Midway Class Carrier USS Franklin D. Roosevelt - Pre 'S' First issue with Early Instructions
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
Original Pre 'S' release and the true first issue. When Revell designed the model, information reached the man designing the instructions that there was a yardarm on the main mast - part #28. The mold cutter or designer either forgot about this part or never got word - and the molds were cut without. Revell used a grease pencil to mark off #28 from the parts list on the kits - new instructions were on the way, but they wanted to use up the old batch first. Later issues do not list this part or show it on the assembly diagram. Revell's first aircraft carrier model from 1954. Excellent kit of a straight-deck Midway class ship in the near original configuration. Features heavy AA battery and an airwing of F4U Corsairs, F9F Cougars, AD-6 Skyraiders and a helicopter that may be a HUP. Has correct hardbox in very good condition. Inside, the kit is molded in the correct glossy light gray plastic. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals, flags and instructions.
