1/48 G271-195 Revell Airborne Marines Gift Set / A-4D Skyhawk And HRS-1 Helicopter - With Large Size Revell "S" Glue Tube
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good++
From 1956 - the first and only issue of this rare holiday season gift set. Contains an the A-4D Skyhawk and HRS-1 Helicopter, both with US Marine markings. Also includes a large (5.25 inches long) never-opened tube of very colorful Revell "S" cement The box has excellent color and gloss, four solid corners and no tape, price tags, no stains and no fading. However it is only graded 'good++' because there is moderate corner damage on the lower right as shown and a thin line of raised brown material that is very hard to see, located just under the nose wheel of the helicopter on the box top. It is also difficult to see because that area of the box is dark. Amazingly, there are no marks from the original ribbon that Revell shipped these kits with (those ribbons almost always stained the box). Inside, the HRS-1 is molded in the correct dark blue plastic and the famous clear Revell base and correct Marines decals for this issue. The A-4 is molded in the correct medium gray with very colorful Marines decals. Both models have the correct clear "Revellving" globe display stand that all "S" and "Pre-S" kits came with. The models have never been started. They are exactly as they left the factory, with all parts and paperwork still sealed in the clear factory bags.
