O-Lin Republic Seabee Amphibian, 1/48, 503

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Very rare kit. The Seabee was produced as a high performance sport amphibian. This is a very hard-to-fine original O-line kit in the small box and advertisement for O-line cement on the top. Produced in 1949 or just before. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. O-Lin (Olin) was founded by Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen - hence the company name. Although a producer of flying models in the 1930s, O-line produced some of the earliest American injection molded kits in the late 1940s. In 1950 the partnership may have ended, because all branding was changed to Lindberg and Paul Lindberg.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Sovereign of the Seas Clipper Ship - 21 inch long Wooden Ship Kit, 1/147

Rare kit from 1937. This is one of Ideal's larger and more highly detailed kits in the 'Super Detail' line.

Very nicely done kit for it's time with a 80% precarved hull, extensive metal fittings, wooden blocks and deadeyes, metal stock, printwood sheets and full size plans with rigging details and rigging materials. The kit has never been started. Most all small details are still in the internal factory sealed bags and 'Pill Bottle'. All other parts are inventoried 100% complete including plans.

Orange Crush-Revell 1910 Cadillac Limousine, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


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.

Matchbox HS Buccaneer S2B, 1/72, 40106

Revell Boeing B-52 Giant Stratofortress - Pre 'S' Kit 'Short' Box 1st Issue, 1/175, H207-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++


First release dated 1954 in the low profile box (1" high vs. 1.5" high for later issues). Includes correct first issue globe stand with three parts instead of four. The instructions also show the three piece stand. The box has excellent color and gloss, four solid corners and no tape, tape marks, price tags or tag marks. Never started. All small parts are still factory bag sealed, and the kit is complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This is such an early issue that it has the earliest decal sheet which has an error. There is suppose to be a triangle on each side of the fuselage near the cockpit. The original sheet has just one of these - Revell had to issue a second decal sheet with the kit with another triangle on it. That extra decal sheet is present in this kit.

Amtech EC-135 N/E AIRA/ALOTS 'Snoopy' and C-135B - Bagged, 1/72, 729202

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box


Bagged kit - there is no box. The box is shown for reference only. Very nicely detailed model with over 150 parts (injection molded and resin). The excellent AMT C-135 series is the base kit. Comes with parts and decals to build one of four different aircraft: EC-135N ARIA/ALOTS, C-135B T/ARIA, EC-135N ARIA and EC-135E ARIA.

All parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags. Includes as-new condition decals and very high-quality photocopied full instructions, marking paint guide (For EC-135E ARIA and EC-135N ARIRA/ALOTS and detailed, illustrated additional instructions for the resin parts. ARIA stood for Apollo Range Instrumented Aircraft and later Advanced Range Instrumented Aircraft. These special aircraft were designed to deploy around the world to provide telemetry acquisition, vehicle tracking and two way voice relay between manned Apollo missions and mission control in Houston, especially in areas where no ground-based telemetry and tracking facilities were available. Far and away the most noteworthy feature of this aircraft was the huge, rounded round. Inside it is still the world's larges airborne radar parabolic dish antenna measuring 7 feet in diameter! As you can imagine, ARIA aircraft received many nicknames like 'Snoopy,' 'Bulbous,' 'Hog Nose' and 'The Nose That Goes.' Eight C-135 aircraft were ARIA modified and the crew could be up to 23 persons depending on the mission length and complexity. Early aircraft were deployed over the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico during Apollo launches and over the Pacific at splashdown. The first mission for all 8 aircraft together was during Apollo 6 in 1968. Typical missions lasted 10 hours and was limited only by the amount of fuel on board since they could not be fueled in flight. The aircraft were a success and proved to be reliable in their roll. One ship, #3704, is preserved at the USAF Museum at Wright-Patterson AFB Ohio.

Aurora P-38 Lightning Brooklyn - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


First issue Brooklyn kit from the early 1950. Molded in the correct light blue with little surface detail and no mass balances, pitot tube or landing gear struts, wheels and doors. Includes the correct rectangular clear stand for this issue. Decals and instructions are in excellent condition. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Aurora issues of the 1/48 scale P-38 are interesting to say the least. The first issue is the Brooklyn kit with the P-38/B-24 box artwork. Inside, the plastic is light blue with minimal surface detail and a clear canopy and rectangular stand that says 'Aurora Plastic Corp. Brooklyn, 4, N.Y.'. There are no landing gear, gear doors or mass balances. The second issue has identical box art, plastic color, decals and rectangular stand, but the box and instructions says 'West Hempstead' instead of Brooklyn. The clear stand mold has had 'Brooklyn' milled out, and there is no location on the stand. The third issue has the same artwork, but the full color 'Aurora Line' logo is used - but the big changes were on the inside. Aurora modified the molds, adding a pitot tube, elevator mass balances and landing gear struts, wheels and doors. The decals and stand remain the same, but the new instructions reflect the changes to the molds. This time the kit is molded in an attractive metallic blue. The fourth issue dropped the Jim Cox artwork in favor of a new P-38 flying from right to left across a threatening sky. The plastic still metallic light blue and the decals and stand remain unchanged. The new details were retained. The fifth issue was 1959. The oval 'Famous Fighters' logo was used with Jo Kotula artwork of two P-38s. The detail level of the kit remained the same, but it was molded in olive drab and clear. The newer 'Triangle' base was added at this time. Further issues kept this box artwork, but the oval logo changed as well as the price extensions.
