Orange Crush-Revell 1910 Cadillac Limousine, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$69   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacture. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

Italeri Waco CG-4A Assault Glider or British Hadrian D-Day Invasion Glider, 1/72, 118

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$38   

Still factory sealed. Same as the Testors kit as Italeri made and owns the molds. The Waco CG-4 was designed and initially built by Waco Aircraft Company of Troy, OH. It first saw action in Sicily and the operation was termed a disaster. This likely had more to do with planning than the actual glider. Missions in Europe, including D-Day, went much better. The glider was even deployed to Burma. It could carry up to 13 troops, or a jeep and four men, or a 75mm Field Gun.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good

$59   

Still factory sealed, but please note that that box has a split on the upper left under the seal. Dated 1958 with classic Jo Kotula box art; this issue is probably from the mid 1960s however from the logo variation.

Revell Air Power CBS Gift Set F-100C F-101A F-102 F-89D B-57B 'S' Issue, G240-495

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$749   

1956 first and only issue. This rare kit contains all five aircraft models. The box is in 'good' condition with very nice color and gloss, three solid corners (one a closed split) and significant litho damage to the right lower section as shown. The four box sides grade better at 'very good.' The tray (lower box) is 'good++' and all internal packing material is present as shown. It is very interesting that there is no damage from the ribbon that Revell wrapped these kits in. Almost all issues have that, but this one does not. Inside, the kit has the two factory dividers. All kits contain the famous Revell clear 'Globe' stand. The kits have never been started. Three of them are still factory sealed in the factory bags with the decals and instructions. The B-57 and F-102 bags was opened, but they have not been started and are inventoried 100% complete and correct with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: there is a molding flaw on the rudder of the B-57. The rudder is complete, but it looks like a rough ring in the plastic. Shipping insurance is required on this kit.

ITC Stinson Model T Tri-Motor - Eastern Air Service, 1/61, 3722

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$149   

Rare. This famous early 1930s transport was the primary competition of the Ford Tri-Motor and saw widespread use. It was the idea of E.L. Cord, the money behind the aircraft and the owner of the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg automobile company. Cord also owned Lycoming, the engines that ended up on the final product. Another of Cord's companies was Century Airlines, which naturally used the aircraft. Century later became part of American Airlines. The Model T was used by many other airlines including Eastern, Delta, Braniff, TWA, United and American when they rolled up Century. The Tri-Motor carried 10 passengers, baggage and of course the mail, which was critical to early airline revenue. The aircraft proved successful and economical to operate. Includes clear windows, interior with passengers and pilots, Eastern Air Service decals and clear blue-tinted display stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The clear parts and decals are still in the factory sealed bag.
