1/156 H1829-198 Revell Helios Lunar Landing Craft 'S' Kit
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: NM
Rare 'near future' space model of a proposed nuclear powered lunar landing craft from 1959. The kit is in exceptional condition. The box has no splits, fading, stains or price tags. The only flaws are a short light crease in the upper left and lower right corners. The model was designed by Krafft A. Ehricke of Convair Astronautics Division, who also designed the Revell Space Shuttlecraft and some of the famous Strombecker Space kits. All phases of the flight can be recreated with the model. It features the launching pad, 6 crew figures, fully separating stages, retractable landing gear and movable control surfaces on the first stage (twisting the nose actually lowers the landing gear and power cables), removable control capsule on the second stage, gondola cables reel in and out, detailed living platform that can be viewed through an operating hatch and more - the kit has 13 total moving parts. Correctly molded in three colors: silver, ice blue and dark blue. This kit has never been started. It has been 100% inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Other than very slight yellowing, the decals and instructions are mint.
