- Estate Fresh - Sold With ! -
This fantastic 1950s model kit comes to you estate fresh from an old Jersey City, New Jersey home we recently liquidated (one of those types of houses where generations never threw anything away). Found packed away the basement workshop, this lot has sat undisturbed for decades.
It’s the Strategic Air Command Fairchild AR-5 Survival Rifle by Paul Lindberg. Kit No. G201. The original retail price was a mere $2.98! The kit is complete with all parts intact and in excellent condition. I’m gonna dare you to find a cleaner example of this nearly impossible-to-find model kit! Stock and barrel are nice and straight. Faint play wear. The model kit comes in its original box (20” by 8-1/4” by 2-1/8”). One end of the box his dented/warped, but it’s all there. The end flap on that side is not attached, but present. The clear “cellovision” plastic window is all there as well, but somewhat unattached and bowed as well. Fantastic and colorful graphics on the box of an S.A.C. airmen using his armalite rifle after his plane’s been downed behind enemy lines! Image painted by Ray Gaedke. If it doesn't sell, it's going right up into my little toy collection.
I'm not an expert on items like this, so I've included over 20 large images below for your grading needs.
This lot will certainly make a splendid addition to any vintage model kit or Vietnam/Korean War era collection.
