Monogram Midget Racer - The First Monogram Plastic Kit, 1/24, P1

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$155   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

Although this is the first Monogram plastic kit, it is the second issue of this kit from later in 1954 (read below). In the late 1940s/early 1950s, Monogram began to use injection molded details in the famous Speedee-Bilt and SuperKit aircraft models. The parts chosen for injection molding were generally difficult to carve from wood. From this experience, Monogram was ready to embark on all-plastic models. The first effort was kit number P-1 (for plastic kit #1) in 1954, the 1/24 scale Midget Racer. The box is the correct hardbox dated 1954. The advertising on the outside is unique and is used to promote this new type of model and the ease of assembly. The kit and sub-assemblies are pictured and named on the sides. This box has excellent color and gloss, solid side corners, no price tags or tape but suffers average general wear including creases, heavy corner wear at the left and right top, and general soiling as shown. The box bottom is intact with four solid original corners, but one long seam has split. Inside, the kit is molded in the correct red plastic. The parts are still slightly flexible and have much less than the typical warping - so this was an unusually stable batch of acetate that was correctly molded. The instructions are correctly labeled P-1 and are near mint. As mentioned before, this is a second issue because the kit has decals and the modified instructions showing the decals. (The first issue has no decals and the instructions do not show them. Kit P-2 is the same way). The decals are also labeled P-1 and are in 'excellent' condition with the usual yellowing and a slight curve. The correct die-cut windshield is included as well as a Monogram mini-catalog correctly showing the only 8 all-plastic kits available at that date, all all with 'P' kit numbers (no 'PC' or 'PA'). The kit has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete. A great piece for the advanced collector.

Heller L`Alsacien F776 / Le Vendeen F778 / Le Provencal F777 (E52 Class) Fast Escort, 1/400, 1082

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$34   

Includes parts and decals to make one of the three ships listed. These attractive and well-armed ships were lead by the Alsacien, which was launched in 1957 and entered service in August of 1960. The full-hull model is very well detailed with 109 parts. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Renwal Nike Ajax MIM-3 Missile Store Display, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

$475   

For the advanced collector and investor. Very rare and in exceptional, all original condition. This is a Adams-factory built display built for hobby shop promotional use. The intention was simple- if hobby shops would purchase and display these dioramas, potential buyers would see the model build and immediately purchase the kit. This probably worked well; but the hitch was that these displays were expensive, so few hobby shops could afford them back in the 1950s. And of the ones made, there was heavy attrition. Parts broke, and when the new kits came out next year, they were thrown away to make room for more. Which makes the 'excellent' condition of this one even more exceptional. The actual model is very neatly built and painted, is missing no parts and has had no repairs. The paint is 'excellent+' and the decals are very good with the typical yellowing and wear as shown . The 3-D cardboard display is 'excellent.' There are no rips, tears, repair, tape or missing material. The only damage is a light crease near the words 'nike man' at the top center, a light crease at the top left, and a slight stain under the '81.' A superb 'no apologies' piece. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured. NOTE: It will be packed as well as possible in a double box, but be aware that some small parts or men may come loose during shipping and may have to repaired on your end.

Lincoln Vickers Viscount BEA British European Airways, 1/121, 103

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$65   

From the 1950s with great box art. Nice early kit that is close to 1/144 scale. Features rotating props, 'gear up' configuration and excellent, full color decals. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still sealed in the factory bag and the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete, including instructions and excellent decals. Lincoln was based in Hong Kong. Plastic kits were not the primary business, but they established quite a line of them before discontinuing production in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Many molds moved to Kader, also in Hong Kong, who reissued the line. Many molds eventually found their way to the USA either through ATP (who purchased the excess kit stock when Kader sold out) or IM.

The fascinating history of this ship is told by Commander Edward P. Stafford, USN, in his legendary book "The Big E - The Story of the USS Enterprise."
