1/40 K153-398 Adams 280mm Atomic Cannon With 2 Gun Transporters - (M56)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+++
Very rare and even more so in this condition. Classic Cold-War kit from the late 1950s. The Atomic Cannon was the Army's 20 mile range gun that could fire shells with small atomic bombs inside them. Very highly detailed for the time and features transporters with movable wheels, towing yokes, fully detailed cab interiors & complete suspension, elevating and swiveling machine guns; the Atomic Cannon itself can be configured for firing or towing positions, the barrel elevates by real operating gears, the carriage rotates 360 degrees on platform and it actually fires 2 "Atomic" shells. Includes crew of 7. Inside, the model is factory new. It has never been started and includes the original cardboard dividers. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the factory sealed bags; the parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. With decals and instructions. The decals are absolutely flat and in remarkable 'near mint' condition; yellowing is the only flaw. The instructions are also in 'near mint' condition. The box has like-new color and gloss, no rips and no missing litho. However, it does have light general wear and very light age foxing on the far right. One corner had a closed split but it has been correctly and very neatly repaired from the inside with light cardstock and book binding glue. The two original price tags on on each short end. There is no tape on the box, but there are small areas of tape residue on the sides; you have to look closely to see it.
