UPC HMS Victory General Mills Cereal Premium, 1/400, 5001

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Cereal premium from the 1960s still in the original General Mills labeled shipping box. Inside is a very nice UPC full-hull Victory featuring a display stand, detailed deck fittings, preformed rat lines, separately molded masts and yards, vacuform billowing sails and detailed rigging diagrams. The ship is molded in black, dark wood brown and tan wood to minimize painting. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. NOTE: one deadeye part has the lower 'ropes' broken off and most are missing. This is easily replaced with pulled sprue or any small strip plastic stock.

Orange Crush-Revell 1908 Buick '10' Rumble, 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.

Still factory sealed. Mattel/Monogram issue dated 1973. This is one of at least two White box variants; the main difference is the text and its location. Excellent kit with traditional high Monogram quality.

Aurora Scotch Lassie, 1/8, 420-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Rare kit dated 1957. Part of the 'Guys and Gals Of All Nations,' these very well detailed kits simply did not sell well. Aurora quickly dropped them from the line, which made them instant collector's items. The kit has never been started. The parts are either inventoried 100% complete or still in the internal factory sealed bag. Includes instructions.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++


Rare. Third issue from about 1954 with the rectangular 'Aurora Line' logo and Famous Fighters of All Nations. Molded in correct gloss medium blue plastic and clear with rectangular clear stand. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including 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 all-new artwork shown in this photo and 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. For the fourth issue, 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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Very rare. Fleet Line sold Japanese-produced motorized wooden boat models as well as outboard engines and a few other toys. Fleet Line also purchased or leased the Medley molds for the injection molded plastic Tug Boat 'Cheryl Ann' which was licensed from the 'Waterfront' TV series. The scale of 1/20 is approximate; the built model measures 20 inches long. It is sturdy and can easily be made remote control. The kit features a large once piece thick plastic hull molded in blue, a brown one piece deck, detail parts molded in white, tan and chrome plate (spotlight), transparent windows, brass stanchions with brass rail, brass battery hardware, nice deck-mounted on/off switch, movable rudder, prop shaft and prop, electric motor and mounting stand, universal joint (rubber tubing), decals, 'Spare Parts Sheet' and instructions showing series or parallel circuit for high speed or endurance.

Revell A3J Vigilante - Master Modelers Club Issue, 1/82, H165-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


1961 issue hard box. This model is unusual in that it has the MMC logo at the upper left and not the usual "US Naval Aviator Wings" logo. This model uses the same molds as the earlier "S" kit.

The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Victor Stanzel & Co Interceptor 50 Inch Wingspan Free Flight Airplane

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair


Very rare. Pre-WWII issue from around 1941. The Interceptor is a gas free-flight design for the Ohlsson 19 or 23 motor. The box is complete but worn as shown. I believe it to be the original box although it has no markings; older kits were often packed in such boxes and the fit for the parts is exact. Includes full size plans, materials list, printwood, balsa wood strips, spars and blocks, plywood, carved-to-shape wheels, metal rod, screws and covering material. The kit has never been started. It is inventoried 100% complete using the materials sheet. Plans and materials sheet have some bug damage (as shown in the photo) but are fully usable.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Large and highly detailed kit with 249 parts and photoetched parts. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Fiume was very fast at over 35 knots and well armed with 8 x 8" guns. She has the misfortune to be at Matapan with her sisters Pola and Fiume. All three were sunk at very close range by the Warspite.

MPM Junkers W-34 (W.34), 1/72, 72110

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Highly detailed moldings. Includes photoetched details. The 1926 F13 changed aviation history in Europe and other parts of the world; the W34 was the follow on aircraft. Again, the new Junkers design was seen worldwide and sales were excellent. W34s served as cargo and passenger haulers for private, civil and military organizations. Never started. Factory sealed bag with decals and instructions.

Aurora Avro CF-100 Canuck - All-Weather Fighter, 1/67, 137-150

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint


Fantastic factory sealed investment-condition box. The 'Woodwards' department store price tag is still on the kit. This issues has a small sticker on both short ends with '150' typed on it. These small stickers cover up the '175' price extension and were often done my manufactures to just change prices (in place of ordering new boxes). 1964 issue with 'Famous Fighters' in the border of the oval sunburst.
