Renwal Wrecker Crane US Army 5 Ton 6 x 6, 1/32, M559-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$95   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

Rare original issue from the 1950s - not the modern reissue. This large model has 155 parts and many action features. The kit of the six-wheel drive 5 ton Wrecker was designed straight from US Army Blueprints and data from the US Army Ordnance Corps. The kit incorporates nearly all the movable features of the actual equipment. The front wheels steer realistically, the hood opens to show the highly detailed engine, the windshield is collapsible and the doors of the cab can be opened and closed. The cab can be enclosed with a simulated canvas top. The rear train provides realistic suspension over irregular surfaces. The crane is completely operable and can hoist actual objects. The winch can be used realistically to pull other models. The jacks can be extended and lowered to support the truck. Additional sheave blocks are provided for hoisting and pulling operations. All four functions of the crane - lifting or lowering the shipper, extending or retracting the boom, winding or unwinding the hoist drum and swinging the boom to the left or right - can be realistically simulated. There has been no assembly. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the factory sealed clear bags. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete and include decals and instructions.

Classic 1950s boxart at it's finest and the rarest of all the Renwal SSBNs. Large 24 inch long kit with clear right half that is hinged to open.
