1/96 H1825-79 Revell Moon Ship (XSL-01) 'S' Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: NM+++
Rare 1957 first and only issue in almost impossible to find, investment-grade "Near Mint+++" condition. The box looks like it was just removed from the Revell shipping box with no more slight wear than you would expect from the production line. Many would argue this kit is "Mint", but I hesitate to call anything 'Mint' as you know. When sales of the dramatic XSL-01 Moon Rocket did not meet expectations, Revell molded the top stage in a different color plastic from the XSL-01, added a special 3D Moon Base Stand and boxed it as a stand-alone kit. The result was this Moon Ship with incredible box art. The box art invites you to 'Enter the Age of Space' with these action features: retractable landing ski, removable fuselage section with detailed cabin with controls and instrument panels and a crew of three astronauts. Molded in correct baby blue and clear plastic. This model has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Even the factory tissue packing paper is present. The decals are perfectly flat and in 'excellent++' with slight yellowing as the only flaw. The instructions are also 'near mint' with the only flaw being slight age foxing to two small areas.
