1/480 H334-169 Revell USS Boston Guided Missle Cruiser 'S' Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Rare original issue hardbox from 1956. This is a nice model that was well detailed for that time featuring full hull (not waterline), detailed deck and superstructure, separately molded and moving main armament, Terrier missiles, launcher and directors and more. Never started. Inside, the kit is exactly as it left the factory. The smallest parts are still in the factory sealed clear bag. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete and are still covered in the Revell 'Thick Paper Towel" packing material that was only used for a short time in the 1950s. Includes flag sheet, decals (still sealed) and instructions. The USS Boston, originally CA-69 (Baltimore Class Heavy Cruiser) was converted to the world's first Guided Missile Cruiser in 1952.
