Pavla Henschel Hs-129A, 1/72, 72004

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+


Limited issue kit with injection molded parts, film instruments and photoetched details. Has decals for two aircraft. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The Henschel 129A was the result of an RLM request for a ground attack aircraft capable of attacking armor. This was the result of Spanish Civil War experience. Construction began in October of 1938 and the aircraft first flew on May 20, 1939. The flying characteristics were less than satisfactory. Several aircraft of the pre-production batch did see service in France in a training unit. The "A" variant was never mass produced as the more powerful and docile Hs-129B was put into production.

Hawk Gee Bee Racer - 1932 Thompson Trophy Winner, 1/48, 627-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+


1960 hardbox issue with artwork by Bill Campbell. The Gee Bee was designed and built by Granville Brothers Aircraft Inc. of Springfield, Massachusetts. The radical design has a wingspan of only 25 feet and a length of 19 feet and 9 inches. The power plant was a supercharged Pratt & Whitney Wasp with an output of 800 hp through a Smith controllable-pitch propeller. Designed specifically to win air races and set speed records, the Gee Bee was a very fast but aerodynamically unstable aircraft. It's most famous pilot, Jimmy Doolittle, flew the ship to victory then walked away, saying that he would never fly it again. Many lost their lives in this legendary but unforgiving aircraft. Never started. 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions.

Monogram Howard DGA-6 Mr Mulligan Bild'n Fly - 17.5 inch Wingspan Flying Model, 1/21, F1-149

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


Rare. 1960 issue from the large 'Bild'n Fly' series. This series was Monogram's most elaborate, colorful and realistic flying models. It was short-lived however, as by 1960 non-flying plastic kits had become the #1 hobby of boys in the USA. The Bild'n Fly series included simplified assembly - no ribs or stringers. All balsa parts are color laminated and die cut - no tissue covering and all decoration is built in full color. There are 14 highly detailed plastic parts such as cowl, wheels, prop, etc. The windows are clear and are of die-cut acetate. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including and instructions.

Pyro 1909 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, 1/32, C456-125

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++


Still factory sealed. 1967 Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of the kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box- in this case, the Silver Ghost was in the Lord Montago Motor Museum in Beaulieu, England. The model includes rubber tires, brass plated parts, colored injection molded parts and clear parts. Features detailed chassis, complete motor and interior and a removable hood or 'bonnet'.

Aurora Republic F-105 Thunderchief - Prototype, 1/78, 123-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Poor


Still factory sealed but the box is badly water damaged. Consider this s builder as the plastic parts will be OK, but the decals will be ruined. Kit has a 1958 date on it, but no "Famous Fighters" in the oval logo - so the 100 price extension hits to 1960 or early 1960s. Dramatic Jo Kotula box art. This is a rare kit of the prototype Thunderchief, with the long nose probe and early configuration nuclear weapons pod

Pyro Gulf Star Tuna Clipper, 1/58, 264-349

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+


Modeled from the two Tuna Clippers (sister ship is Sea Magic) of the Avondale Marine Ways Company of New Orleans. These hard-working boats and crews roamed the ocean year-around in a dangerous business. Many vanished without a trace. The Gulf Star was wreaked on a reef off Peru. Model has a hull length of 13.5 inches. Very nicely detailed kit even includes rigging material and rigging instructions. Never started. Parts are still in factory sealed bags. Includes instructions.

Top Flite MIG-15 JIGTIME - Flying Model, A-2

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

The kit is built off of central jigs and all the wood is pre-printed with a colorful design. Includes vac canopy, launcher skid and rubber band. Reportedly flies at over 50 miles per hour...and since it is a Carl Goldberg design, it probably flies well. Appears to be very close to 1/48 scale. The kit has not been started and is in mint condition. No parts have been punched out of the sheets and the printing is clear and crisp. Complete with all parts, Jigtime flying tips pamphlet and colorful instructions featuring Topsy and Flitey - your animated building assistants.

Lindberg Nautilus Atomic Submarine, 704

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Rare first issue hardbox with script Lindberg logo. In the 1930s, Paul Lindberg was designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft like so many other men and boys of the time. His plans appear in Popular Aviation magazine and he made a good name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kits sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the early artists for O-lin. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg had control and had his name as the logo. The first logo is the one on this kit - 'Lindberg' in script with 'Products' arched across the top and 'Incorporated' arched across the bottom to create a broken circle around the script. Ray Gaedke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg, such as the box painting for the Nautilus here. The Nautilus appears to be the first sea vessel that Lindberg cut it's own molds for - the Chris Craft Express Cruiser, PT Boat, LST and Fleet Submarine (Ex-Varney) were done by O-lin. The model is an interesting work of fact and fiction - it includes a deck gun and what looks like a Regulus II missile for the deck! The scale is not known but it measures about 12 inches long when assembled. The model has never been started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Type three logo issue from the 1960s. Zeros press in close to score hits on a formation of TBFs as Avenger gunners score back.
