1/32 M552-168 Renwal Skysweeper M51 (D48) 75mm Anti-Aircraft Gun
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc++
First issue. Fantastic kit with over 130 parts and a Combat Crew of 5. Kit has almost all the moving features of the real weapon. The kit has not been started NOTE: missing one of two #29 small pins (called a sheave). This part can be made. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions. The Skysweeper was a 45 round-per-minute that was teamed with the Nike Ajax in the late 1950s/early 1960s to defend America against Soviet Attack. The gun system was radar controlled and fully mobile. It could be set up on any terrain and ready to fire in 2 minutes. The unit was considered very advanced an complex at the time; it took army maintenance crews 37 weeks each to train on the system at Aberdeen.
