Sterling Golden Hind - 9.75 inch long Solid Wood Ship Kit with Cloth Sails and Metal Fittings, G5

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold   

Still factory sealed. In the late 1970s/early 1980s Sterling issued these simplified wood kits for beginners. They included a completely carved hull with very little sanding needed to complete. Also included are full size plans, instructions, rigging diagrams, cloth sails and metal fittings. I remember building some of these - it was an ideal project for someone who had never built a solid wooden kit but wanted the experience.

UPC McDonnell F4H-1 (F-4C) Phantom II, 1/50, 5090-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

This kit represents somewhat of a mystery. We know that UPC did not make any of their own tooling, but the mold origin of this kit is unknown. In an apparent cost saving measure, the large box re-uses the same Scott Edison box art from the 1/72 UPC F-4 which is an ex-Hasegawa kit. The dramatic box art claims this is a F-4C; however, the instructions state that it is an F-4H-1. Since they are a copy of the original manufacturers instructions, I believe the instructions. The kit is interesting for it's level of detail. It includes the fuselage fuel tanks and two detailed engines. The cockpit includes ejection seats, two pilots, side instrument panels, control stick, main panels and opening canopies. Rudders, ailerons, flaps and elevators all move and the wings fold as well. There are internal wing fuel tanks. The landing gear retracts and all gear doors close also. The nose can be removed to display a detailed radar package. A wide choice of wing and fuselage loadouts is provided, with numerous AIM-7 Sparrow missiles (body mounted and on wing pylons), iron bombs and a centerline drop tank. There is one large decal sheet with two decal choices - 'FJ-199' USAF as shown on the box art, and a US Navy aircraft from VF-102 USS Enterprise. The model has not been started. NOTE: missing both pilots. Inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions.

Marx The 'Sea Witch' Full-Rigged Clipper Ship 33 Inches Long, 1/96

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Rare and beautiful kit in the first issue, ornate box and no billowing sails. Imagine you are back in the mid 1950s. The only large sailing ship models available are made from wood and can take years to complete. It is still 6-7 years before Revell's 3 foot Cutty Sark is released. Louis Marx, the huge toy manufacture, saw that with the new injection molding processes that he could produce a masterpiece model of a large clipper ship that anyone could build. Marx spared no expense in their entry into the growing field of plastic models - this kit measures 33 inches long when assembled and has over 500 parts. The model claims to the first time that anyone could build a museum-quality large ship at home, and the claim is correct since this easily predates all larger plastic sailing ship kits by many years. Prior to this model, only wooden kits were available of this subject, which required a great deal of skill and craftsmanship. A great deal of thought went into the design of this large and complicated kit to make it easier to construct. Many colors of plastic are used (black, dark brown, tan and white) to minimize painting, while the deck was dealt with in an exceptional fashion - lithograph printed metal! The three main decks were tin lithographed, which means the decks are completely finished with all the detail of wood; boards are of different shades and divided by perfect, thin black lines. These decks are in excellent condition with only very light wear. The hull was perfectly factory assembled since it was the trickiest part of the assembly. The kit is inventoried complete with all parts, the booklet "The Romance of the Clipper Ship", original unopened glue, rigging materials, decals, flags and more. The instructions are a work of art themselves. They are a very large and well-produced affair with numerous photos of the assembled kit, enlarged drawings, detailing tips and rigging instructions. A beautiful kit! Another of Marx's rare ground-breaking kits is the large Chris Craft Constellation. It also has fantastic detail but suffered from a high price as did the Sea Witch. Primarily due to high pricing, sales were poor and the kits quickly faded as Marx dropped the plastic kit line completely.
