Monogram Grumman Gulfhawk, 1/32, 6053

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$45   

1983 Heritage Edition. Very highly detailed kit of the civil F3F biplane fighter. The Gulfhawk was one of the most famous aircraft of the 1930s. She was flown by the famous Al Williams for Gulf Oil at air shows all around North America. Full cockpit detail, sliding canopy, movable control surfaces, retracting tailwheel, and the main gear retracts and extends when the prop is turned by hand! The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: Builder kit only. Box has mouse damage as shown. Decals have light stains on the backing paper but not on the actual transfers.

Sunbeam Bristol Britannia (ex-Frog) - Soviet Military Transport, 1/96

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$79   

Many Frog molds made their way to the ex-Soviet Union, probably in the 1960s. Of them, this one is perhaps the most interesting. This kit represented quite a research problem, but Mark Zandy has provided information from his Soviet kit collection. The manufacture is Jaroslavl Chemical Plant "Lutch" (Jaroslavl is a town on Volga river). "Lutch" can be translated as "Ray", but "Sunbeam" is a better interpretation. Rovex sent this mold to the USSR in 1977 in an agreement between Dunbee-Combex-Marx and Novoexport, but the Bristol Britannia didn't receive the Novo kit number and this kit had been produced only for the Russian market. The price was 2 rubles, which I am told was expensive at the time. The number on the box OCT 17-296-75 refers to the number of an industrial standard for plastic toys production that was established in 1975. The box states "assembly kit of a transport plane" and it is clearly in USSR military markings. The scale is stated as 1/72, which is incorrect. Inside the box is the Frog model of the Britannia, which is 1/96. What the Soviets were doing with a model of the Britannia in Soviet military markings is unknown to me. There are no instructions or decals, but it was easy to determine that the kit is missing one propeller retainer (easy to make or can be left out as it does not show) and is missing four propeller blades. The kit also has a clear windshield and full landing gear, gear doors, etc. The kit has never been started. "Lutch" received 4 ex-Frog molds. For the domestic market kits were numbered: No. 196 -- Hawker Tempest V (bagged), No. 197 -- P-47D-25 Thunderbolt (bagged), No. ??? -- Bleriot XI (bagged) , No. 214 -- Bristol Britannia (you can see this number on the box: Article Jr 085 -- 1 -- 214). At least two different boxes were issued for the Britannia.

Aurora Me-109 (Bf-109) Brooklyn - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 55-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$695   

Very rare first issue. Of the Brooklyn series, this is usually considered the hardest kit to find. Inside, the kit is 100% correct with no rivet detail, no bombs and no landing gear. The color is the unique first run non-metallic medium red with clear canopy and stand. The stand is the correct square one marked 'Brooklyn.' The instructions are correct Brooklyn also, and the decals are the proper early 'Tatem Company' issue with the swastika. The box grades 'excellent' overall. The colors are bright and beautiful. The flaws are edge wear at the top left, a 3/4" by 1/4" tape tear on one long side, and a 1" x 1/2" tear on one short side and other light wear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, 'excellent' instructions and 'very good++' decals. This kit must be shipped insured.
