Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc+
One of the 'Holy Grails' of 1950s Space Kits and in exceptional condition inside and out. 1957 first and only issue 'S' kit with the fantastic box art. The molds were reportedly damaged beyond use, which makes reissues impossible. The spaceship was designed by the rocket scientist Ellwyn E. Angle of Systems Laboratories Inc. Features detailed manned top stage with full interior, removable top, opening hatch, spaceship and ground crew members and detailed working launch pad. The main stages and boosters snap apart to recreate all phases of the flight from Earth takeoff, Lunar Landing and Return to Earth. The included 'XSL-01 Operations Manual' outlines in words and illustrations each phase of the spaceship's trip. Molded in the correct gloss orange, silver, gloss metallic blue and clear. Never started. All internal factory cardboard presentation material is present and excellent. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Instructions and Operations manual booklet are both in 'excellent' condition with typical yellowing as the only flaw. Decals perfectly flat and 100% intact and graded 'excellent++' with age yellowing as the only flaw. Box is graded 'excellent+' and features factory-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no missing litho, no rips, fading or stains, no price tags or marks from tags and no tape or tape marks (other than the factory sealing tape). The only flaws are very minor wear, very light creasing and some corner wear. Shipping insurance is required on this kit.
