1/40 Authentic Scale
HONEST JOHN Rocket Launcher
with self-propelled platform & 5 g.i.'s
A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE "HONEST JOHN"
Used by troop units both in the U.S. and overseas, the HONEST JOHN Rocket Launcher has proven itself as a primary weapon of great destructive power in the arsenal of Army weapons. Developed in the early fifties, the rocket, weighing several tons, is capable of carrying an atomic warhead and is powered by its own fuel burning engine. Having no electronic controls the rocket is aimed and fired much in the same way as conventional weapons
AS YOU CAN SEE BY THE PICTURES THE BOX IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH CRISP ARTWORK
(This box is manufactured out of thicker and sturdier cardboard material than today's model boxes are!
This kit is being sold as used because the box is not sealed, the pieces are mostly off sprues and the rocket pieces are missing, however there are over 100 green injected plastic pieces, 5 g.i. figures, 3 metal axles and decals to build the rocket launcher, that have been verified per instructions.
MOBILE ROCKET LAUNCHER VEHICLE & 5 G.I. FIGURES ONLY
NO "HONEST JOHN" MISSILE, HONEST!
I HAVE FOUND THE MISSILE NOSE CONE AND THERE IS A CHANCE I WILL LOCATE THE OTHER "HONEST JOHN" PIECES, HOWEVER DON'T CONSIDER THAT WHEN BIDDING!
THIS IS NOT A COMPLETED MODEL AND ANY PAINT, GLUE OR OTHER MATERIALS REQUIRED TO BUILD THIS KIT ARE NOT INCLUDED
PICTURES ARE OF THE ACTUAL KIT
this is an oop kit that is hard to find and sells for over $100 on eBay in worse condition than this, granted they most likely have the missile, LOL.
THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY

PLEASE READ BEFORE BIDDING
Shipping for this model kit will be by USPS Priority Mail and will cost $15.00, if you think that shipping fees are to high, please do not purchase. I was in jeopardy of losing my eBay Seller privileges because previous Buyers have left less than 5 on feedback regarding shipping fee cost. I do not understand this because the shipping fees are always posted on auctions and there is never any added cost. Some items, like plastic models, have high shipping cost because I use proper packaging materials to insure that items are not damaged during shipping and these items cost $. I only sell items on eBay every now and then and any feedback less than a 5 is like a dagger to my feedback rating and I can't make up for it with volume like the big eBay Sellers. Also, I try to ship the day of or the day after payment is received so there is never any waiting for a particular day of the week for your item to ship. As hard as I try to give an accurate cost for shipping when I list an item there have been times when after I have properly packaged an item and determined the cost for materials and actual shipping fees my posted shipping fees were high. If this happens, I will issue a refund to the buyer for any shipping fees over and above what it cost me to ship the item. On the other hand, after an item is packaged and shipping fees are determined and it turns out that the actual fees are more than what I listed, I pay the difference. I don't add any handling fees or make any profit on shipping. I honestly try to make the unpleasant portion of an eBay transaction, shipping fees, as painless as possible, however, if you have any concerns on shipping fees please email me prior to bidding or don’t bid. If you have made multiple purchases, please wait for my Invoice showing combined shipping fees. Payment Must Be Made Within 3 Days of Receipt of Invoice.
