Monogram Piper Tri-Pacer Sport Airplane (Tripacer), 1/32, 6822

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold   

Still factory sealed. 1970s "White Box" release of this great large-scale model. Has opening doors, full interior, removable cowling, engine detail and two hunting figures (including politically incorrect dead mountain lion). Monogram lists a cardboard diorama for use with this kit (and another for the Cessna 180). This was advertised in the old four star kit box for a short time. The display was based on the store display but with the advertising removed. If you have one of these displays, please contact me.

Globe Steel Refrigerator Car - 'Ship and Travel Santa Fe All The Way' - with Trucks, HO, 6000-B

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Very high quality Globe kit from the 'Golden Age' of HO 'Craftsman' kits. I have always considered Globe as one of the 'Cadillac' metal kit manufacture for their use of crisply embossed brass or steel and prototype factory paint and markings. This kit is a fine example. Features all steel sides, ends and roof with all parts completely and beautifully painted and marked as required, wooden floor, metal underframe beam and supports, other brass and steel details, metal trucks with real springs and full instructions/plans. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. If you have an interest in these highly accurate HO kits and the revolution they created in modeling, please read the article about their history located on this website.

Ye Olde Huff-N-Puff Hart Gondola 40 Foot - Michigan Central RR - (Silver Streak) - HO Wood and Metal Kit, HO, 168

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Please read the article on this website about older HO train kits and the modeling revolution they caused in the late 1930s/1940s. During this time, Silver Streak created some of the most detailed and realistic rolling stock model that have ever been made. In most cases, wooden parts on the prototype are also wooden parts on the kit - same for metal parts. When you build them, they look just like the prototypes since they are made of the same materials. The model is factory painted and lettered for the Michigan Central. The paint is in new condition. This kit has wooden sides (since the real hopper did), other wooden parts, and metal underframe and details. and includes all underside and interior details of the hopper as well. The model has not been started and is complete.

Frog Lockheed Ventura PV-1 Bomber/Reconnaissance, 1/72, F240

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Very rare. Near the end, Frog had projected several future kits. In the case of the Ventura, the kit was never released but the molds were made. Around 40,000 boxes were made anticipating production. Most of the boxes were destroyed. A unknown number of decals sheets were produced. There are no instruction sheets reported. The mold was put in the machine and 100 test shots were run - the only Ventura run at Frog. The 100 test shots were not sold but some found their way into collector's hands. This example is in an excellent box and contains the decals and all parts. It is molded in gloss dark blue and clear. The kit has never been started and is complete. Please note there are no instructions as none were ever made. Shipping insurance is required for this kit.
