This isn't actually a sci-fi kit, but it's different enough that I wanted to include it.

The kit is a reissue of the Renwall Atomic Cannon kit that was released in the 1950’s. Revell has issued the kit as part of its Selected Subjects Program, and it’s a kit that is worth having in your stockpile.

The Atomic Cannon was a 280mm gun with two 50-ton transporters to help move it. It is “accurately scaled from U. S. Army Ordinance blueprints.”

The box on this kit is huge . . . there’s no other way to say it. It measures 16 inches wide by 22.5 inches long and 4.5 inches high.

The kit, molded in light gray styrene, has over 300 parts and takes up pretty much the entire box. The styrene appears to be fairly thick, and some ejector pin marks are evident on the parts. Detail is minimal, and panel lines are mostly raised. The cannon can be raised and lowered by means of gears inside the assembled main gun carriage.

A single sheet of waterslide decals is included, and features US Army stars, stencil markings, and yellow/black warning markings for the front and rear bumpers.

The main gun carriage is about 14 inches long, and the frames on the transporters are both roughly 8 inches long and 3.5 inches wide.
