1/100 H1819-198 Revell Jupiter C - With Working Gantry / Elevator / Explorer Satellite and Crew - 'S' Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc-
1958 first issue hardbox featuring some of my favorite 'S' box artwork. Correct, original release molded in three colors. Not the modern reproduction. The box is in 'excellent-' condition with great color and gloss. There are no price tags, no tag marks, no litho tear or missing litho, no fading, four solid original corners, no stains and no tape other than the factory tape. Flaws include moderate edge wear, corner wear and light but even general wear. Loaded with working features typical of kits at the time. The entire gantry tower folds back and moves on railroad base, the elevator moves to the four different work platforms and the Explorer Satellite can be removed from the Jupiter rocket. Includes crew of 7. Inside, the kit has never been started. Parts are molded in red, medium gray and white. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts but NOTE: (2) part #67 supports are broke; the broken parts (one each) are present and fit back perfectly. One #64 ladder guard (a small "U" shaped part) is red when it should be white plastic. The decals are in amazing 'near mint' condition with slight yellowing as the only flaw. The instructions are also in 'near mint' condition.
