Best 1935 Gilmore Special Indianapolis 500 Winner, 1/30, 535-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$145   

Very rare kit for the advanced collector. In the early 1950s Best Hobby Kits (Best Plastic Corporation of Brooklyn, NY) entered the infant USA plastic model kit market with a series of Indianapolis 500 winners. Six kits were issued - the 1920 Monroe Special, 1922 Murphy Special, 1931 Miller Special, 1935 Gilmore Special, 1940 Maserati Racer and 1953 Fuel Injection Special. The kits were priced correctly and featured 'Super Detailed' parts (for the time). It is unknown why the line failed to sell - it may have been distribution. Best was certainly not a large player in the business. The kit features real rubber Firestone racing tires, decals and some interior detail. The kit has not been started. All parts are still in the original 'krinkle' bag. Complete with decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+++

$675   

Rare gift set from about 1955 or 1956. First and only issue with 'S' cement logos on both short sides. The box is complete but has split corners, general wear, tapes marks, writing etc as shown. Inside, all the cardboard factory display trays are intact as is the large, colorful tube of 'S' cement. The kits have never been started. All kits are still factory sealed or inventoried 100% complete. The S-55, D-558-2 and F-84F are still sealed in the factory crinkle bags. The crinkle bag for the B-25 is present but holed; the kit was removed, inventoried complete and the parts placed in a zip lock bag. The B-24's bag has disintegrated and is gone. The kit has been inventoried 100% complete also. All decals and instructions are present. The B-24 instructions have the 'lost parts' coupon neatly cut from them; the original owner may have had to send to Revell to make the kit complete as it currently is! Shipping insurance is required on this kit.

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$95   

Still factory sealed. Rare, very high quality resin waterline kit of the Akagi in the three-deck configuration. The initial idea was to speed up the take-off and landing of aircraft. It worked initially, but by 1935 the lower two decks were not long enough for the heavier aircraft. At this point Akagi was reconstructed.

Revell Bell P-39 Airacobra - 'S' Issue, 1/45, H222-89

Richard Kishady did the famous painting for this kit and originally included German kill markings on the nose of the P-39. Very shortly after this, Revell began to export kits to Europe and many European countries had banned the swastika - so the box art was changed to Japanese kill markings, which is this issue.
