This is a RARE find. It is still shrink wrapped. Never been opened. When I got this item. It was in a curio cabinet.
Easily the most notable of allbuilding kits ever issued by Life-Like is this Hamburger Stand featuring the McDonald's name. The kit arrives on the market in 1970 and was reportedly withdrawn after it was discovered that not all approvals needed were in place between involved parties.
Life-Like does include this kit until at least their 1973 Landscaping and Scenic Material catalog. Though no image is provided in the catalog, the same name and stock number is included in this 1973 listing. Of additional interest, is the listing in this same 1973 catalog for a pre-assembled Hamburger Stand carrying stock number S357F. To date, I have never seen an example of a pre-built McDonald's kit in a Life-Like package.
Seen above is an ad for the McDonald's kit from the December 1971 edition of Railroad Model Craftsman magazine. The kit is number S 359K in the Life-Like line and carried a $3.00 retail price. Notice too that the kit's name is not McDonald's, but Hamburger Drive-In.
Thank you for looking. Good luck buyers.
