1/40 H269-198 Revell Douglas AD-6 Skyraider (AH-1) Navy Attack Aircraft - 'S' Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Very rare original issue from 1959. The box states "So Realistic It Does Everything But Fly!" and it holds to that promise! The model is packed with action features; wings fold, dive brakes operate, arresting hook moves, canopy slides to show full cockpit, landing gear retracts and cowling comes off to show fully detailed engine. The most interesting item is the landing gear retract and extension mechanism. It works through a very complicated gear system that is operated from a central point. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: two very fine push rods are neatly broken from the engine front, which is common. They are both included so you can repair them. The box displays better than "Excellent" but is graded as such as there is moderate shelf/storage wear on one long side and average wear on the the other three sides.
