Email for availability.

Still factory sealed. Dated 1982. Very popular kit from ex-Crown molds. Excellent model with a huge array of extras. Has all recessed panel line detail. Features all the missiles listed and 5 extra clear display stands for each. Has decals for two different aircraft in camo or SAC Anti-Nuclear Flash white and silver. The Skybolt was a plan to deliver an ALBM (Air Launched Ballistic Missile) from a B-52 to greatly enhance it's survivability. Skybolt failed 5 of 6 initial tests, but finally was successful. However, the program was canceled due to the availability of the Polaris SLBM. Plans to equip the RAF Vulcan with Skybolt fell through and left with British with no modern nuclear force, causing them to adapt the Polaris SLBM and passing strategic nuclear capability from the RAF to the RN. AGM-28 Hound Dog was a sleek design to help B-52 penetrate thick SAM defenses. Hound Dog could use it's engines to help the B-52 during take off and then could be refueled from the B-52's tanks. This was an important point as the B-52 carried 2 of these missiles at 5 tons each. Hound Dog had a range of 200 to 500 miles (depending on launch height) at Mach 2.0 and an accuracy of one mile at those ranges. The warhead was 4 megatons. SRAM was a nuclear-armed short range missile carried in quantity of 20. SRAM was designed to blast holes in defenses in front of the B-52 and for the final target. Quail was a decoy that would mimic the B-52 with radar reflectors, infrared, radar repeaters and chaff decoys. Quail did reach operational status and operated on some Hound Dog-equipped B-52s.

Superior Plastics The Seeing Eye Anatomical Model, 1/375, 3100-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$24   

Hard-to-find and dated 1961. A very nice kit featuring a very large eye (2x size) with life-like muscle movement, all internal and external parts, skull section that it fits into (doubling as a display base) and heavily illustrated, color instruction book. Molded in ivory and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Superior Plastics Inc. listed their address as 426 N. Oakley Boulevard, Chicago12 , Illinois. They called themselves 'Custom Molders and Extruders.' From the sounds of things, Superior was an injection molding and extruding job shop which decided to go into the business of making model kits - and they did, cutting molds for a significant line of educational style model kits. Science kits appeared as early as 1962, and possibly earlier. Superior often referred to the kit line as 'Superlon' on the box top and instructions. The first building kit, 'Statue of Liberty', has a copyright of 1963. This kit was designed to be lit from the inside and came with lamp accessories. The second kit was the Taj Mahal and the third 'The Lincoln Memorial,' which could also be illuminated from within. Other kits included 'Yankee Stadium', 'United Nations Building', 'The Deep Sea Lobster', 'The Giant American Bull Frog', 'Unit of Life - Animal Vegetable Cell' and 'Amoeba.' They are best known, however for the anatomy series - 'The Thinking Man Human Skull', 'The Thinking Matter Human Brain', '3-D Human Body', 'Modern Man Skeleton', 'Vital Organs', 'The Beating Heart', 'The Mighty Molar', 'The Visible Pumping Heart', The Five Senses series with 'The Seeing Eye', 'The Listening Ear', 'Anatomy of Taste', 'Anatomy of Smell', 'Anatomy of Touch' and the 'World of Sensation', which was all five senses in one giant kit. The company was quite innovative and even had a patent on action for the Visible Pumping Heart. Sometimes the same kit was issued without a display case and sometimes with under a different part number. Other kits are said to exist are 'Grasping Hand' and the Skull and Brain together. Superior eventually sold off the molds, but the exact date is not know. Early boxes do not have zip codes, but later boxes list 60612, so production at least went into the later 1960s. The science kit molds were sold to 'Educational Products Inc' (EPI) and most of them were reissued. MDK bought the 5 building molds and reissued them all along with the Marx White House before the ceased production. The Statue of Liberty used to be for sale in the on-sight gift shop and still may be. Lindberg later purchased the all the science molds from EPI and have reissued many of them.

Revell Clipper Stag Hound Clipper - The Largest Merchant Ship of Her Day, 1/216, H345-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$85   

Very nicely detailed like all early Revell sailing ships. Full hull kit with premolded ratlines, optional sails and full rigging instructions. Molded in three colors. The kit has never been started. The parts and all paperwork are still in the internal factory sealed bag. The Stag Hound was designed by the famous Donald McKay and was launched on December 7, 1850. She is famous for her great speed and turned a nice profit for her owners. The most notable event was when the Stag Hound was asked to take a copy of President Lincoln's inaugural address to London. During this run, she raced the steamer 'America' and won easily. Shortly after this she was lost off Brazil to a spontaneous combustion of her coal cargo. The crew successfully abandoned ship. The captain was the last to leave. He lowered the American Flag, wrapped it around himself and jumped overboard.
