Ace MG TC Midget, 1/20, 8R

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Hard-to-find kit from 1951. The Ace Products Company was located at 60 N. San Gabriel Blvd, Pasadena 8, California and produced a line of automobiles and perhaps other subjects also. This kit consists of injection molded hard plastic black wheels and tires, clear injection molded headlights and holders, cast metal steering wheel, grill and MG decals and pre-cut and stock wooden parts. The majority of the parts, including the body, seats, fenders, etc are profile cut. Includes full size plans with assembly illustrations, detailed (for that time) written instructions and two photos of the completed model. NOTE: at one time the passenger 'box' was built. Due to the use of poor glue, it has fallen apart. The pieces are intact and can be easily assembled again. One piece broke and was neatly repaired. You can use it or replace it with wood (it is balsa) if you desire. There was no other assembly.

Airfix Short Sunderland - Craftmaster Issue, 1/72, 1-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint


A remarkable example that is still factory sealed and in mint condition. The 'Hendricks Discount Toys' price tag is still on the right side panel. Incredible Craftmaster artwork. A merchant ship is sinking on the left and the crew is in lifeboats in the foreground on lower side panel. The Sunderland is preparing to rescue them, while the other Sunderland depth-charges the U-boat responsible for the sinking. The Sunderland's 21-year record with the RAF has made it a legend. Derived from the Empire Class Flying Boat Airliners, Sunderland IIIs had a top speed of 210 mph and an endurance of 12 hours. These qualities made the Sunderland a superb platform for North Sea and North Atlantic patrols, ASW and SAR. Crews usually loved the airplane; it's large size afforded many airborne comforts that bomber or fighter crews could only dream of, such as bunk, a head and an area for food preparation. Kit features beaching gear, rotating turrets with elevating guns, movable control surfaces, external bomb load and rotating props.
