1/424 H331-169 Revell USS Norton Sound Missile Test Ship
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc-
Very rare kit from 1956; molds were altered to make the class seaplane tender, which made any reissue impossible. Very nice box. This Norton Sound was originally a seaplane tender and was converted to an ocean-going laboratory for development and testing of guided missiles and rockets. This ship was key in the Navy's move into the guided missile age. Model features working cranes, operating launching platform for the Viking missile, Terrier with launcher, Jeeps and Lark missile. Kit has never been started. All small parts are still factory bag sealed. Decals and flag sheet are like new with slight yellowing as the only flaw. Complete with original instructions.
