Model kits of the Atomic Cannon

Below are images of the box art of some of the plastic model assembly kits produced from the 1950s to the 1970s. Renwal, Adams, SNAP, and Life-Like are all out of business, now. None of these plastic kits are currently in production, but they can be found (occasionally) on eBay and through internet dealers of rare and collectible model kits.

Renwal plastic model assembly kit
First made available in 1958, the Renwal kit is 1/32 scale. It was reissued in the 70s by Revell, as part of the "History Makers" series. This image has been digitally restored by the crew at theBoxartDen.com. Revell Plastic Model Corporation re-released this Renwal kit, in something like the original boxart, as part of Revell's "Special Subjects Program," in September of 2011.
Adams plastic model assembly kit
This is the box art for the Adams 1/40 scale Atomic Cannon plastic model kit, which was available in the late 1950s. Note how the gun tube is depicted as fully deployed, even though the Rear Truck is not yet fully detached.
SNAP plastic model assembly kit

 

The SNAP box art was derived from the original ADAMS box art. This image was digitally created by the crew at theBoxartDen.com
Life-Like plastic model assembly kit
This is the box art for the Life-Like Hobby Kits reissue of the Adams 1/40 scale Atomic Cannon plastic model kit, available in the early 1960s.
Revell plastic model assembly kit
This is the box art of the Revell "History Makers" reissue in the 1970s of the Renwal 1/32 scale kit. Note how in the photograph of the assembled kit, the lifting forks are incorrectly attached to the gun carriage, instead of to the two trucks.
