This Revell XSL-01 is a rare Out-Of-Production kit from about 1960. I built one of these when I was 12 or so years old. It remains one of my favorite kits. I have seen this kit on ebay before and it was not nearly this much. More like $250 is my recollection.

I notice that no one is bidding on this, though. So maybe $2500 is an impossible dream that the current owner has.

I keep hoping it shows up somewhere as an SSP but at this stage of the game I can only assume Revell scrapped the mold or it is in severe disrepair. I even was hoping they would take a nod from early on in Polar Lights history and backwards engineer a new mold if in fact they don't have the original tooling.

I know I aint payin 250 for one and certainly not 2500.00!

But to some people 2500.00 isn't but chump change..

A great kit. I was able to obtain another earlier this year, but I didn't pay $2,500 for it.

I used to think that the Space Station was realistic, but now that I think about it, I don't see the electric power source. Is there supposed to be a nuclear power plant inside the station somewhere? The black panels of the rotating parts of the cylinder had what looked like half-buried pipes snaking all over the surface. Maybe that is supposed to be for cooling for the reactor? But the kit has so much of the interior displayed that I don't see where the reactor would be. Ought to be on a long boom. Remember the "Mars and Beyond" Disney show? That had a nuclear electric spaceship that had a reactor on a boom.
