Features full cockpit, opening cockpit doors, pilot and co-pilot figures, detailed engines and rotor assembly, rotating main and rear rotors and removable mobile hospital with opening ramp, plasma containers and cot. Although these kits were a huge improvement over the offerings from the 1950s, they were too late to save the company. NOTE: this kit has minor, neat assembly. The cockpit assembly has been neatly built. I have also included an unbuilt (but neatly painted) cockpit that is missing the control sticks, one pilot and a seat. There is no other assembly. NOTE: the pod is missing one #81 grab-on and one #75 tiny wheel. I have included a partially built pod that does include those parts.

Entex 1804 Trevithick The World's First Steam Locomotive - With Display Case, 1/38, 8200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$49   

The model is from the 1980s. Older but very nice kit that is well detail and molded in wood brown, silver, black and with brass rods. Includes clear display case and display base. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. The world's first locomotive was the 1804 Trevithick. On February 13 of that year, Richard Trevithick's high pressure steam locomotive pulled five wagons carrying 10 tons of iron and 70 men on the Penydaren Tramroad from Methyr to Abercynon, Wales. The nine miles was covered in four hours and five minutes but much time was lost cutting down several trees and removing some large rocks. At times they reached the unheard of speed of five miles per hour! The performance won a 500 Pound wager for the train's owner, Mr. Samuel Homfrey and proved for once and for all that smooth steel wheels could obtain traction on a smooth iron rail. Until this day, conventional wisdom insisted that only geared wheels running on geared track would be able to pull any load up the slightest grade.
