Email for availability.

Still factory sealed. Very rare kit. Has optional parts to build one of two versions, the Hisso or J-4b powered. Complete injection molded kit in two colors with rubber wheels, full decals for US Mail-Colorado Airways or Pacific Air Transport Air Mail, instructions and painting guide. The M-1 holds two very special places in American Aviation History. First, it is the first production monoplane and played a key roll in early airmail. In the 1920s, Government contracts for flying airmail on a $/mile basis was about the only thing keeping commercial aviation alive and growing. In 1926, the M-1 was the first aircraft to fly with PAT, Pacific Air Transport. PAT linked Seattle to LA with mail contracts. The other unique item is that this was the Ryan NYPs (Lindbergh's aircraft) father. When Lindy visited Ryan in 1927, he flew the M-1. He requested an airplane that was similar but larger - thus the NYP was born and aviation history was made.

Orange Crush-Revell 1910 Cadillac Limousine, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$69   

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.

Amtech EC-135 N/E AIRA/ALOTS 'Snoopy' and C-135B - Bagged, 1/72, 729202

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

$65   

Bagged kit - there is no box. The box is shown for reference only. Very nicely detailed model with over 150 parts (injection molded and resin). The excellent AMT C-135 series is the base kit. Comes with parts and decals to build one of four different aircraft: EC-135N ARIA/ALOTS, C-135B T/ARIA, EC-135N ARIA and EC-135E ARIA. Features all fine recessed panel lines, detailed interior, choice of TF-33 or J-57 engines, ALOTS pod, Black Box resin detail parts and more. The kit has never been started. All parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags. Includes as-new condition decals and very high-quality photocopied full instructions, marking paint guide (For EC-135E ARIA and EC-135N ARIRA/ALOTS and detailed, illustrated additional instructions for the resin parts. ARIA stood for Apollo Range Instrumented Aircraft and later Advanced Range Instrumented Aircraft. These special aircraft were designed to deploy around the world to provide telemetry acquisition, vehicle tracking and two way voice relay between manned Apollo missions and mission control in Houston, especially in areas where no ground-based telemetry and tracking facilities were available. Far and away the most noteworthy feature of this aircraft was the huge, rounded round. Inside it is still the world's larges airborne radar parabolic dish antenna measuring 7 feet in diameter! As you can imagine, ARIA aircraft received many nicknames like 'Snoopy,' 'Bulbous,' 'Hog Nose' and 'The Nose That Goes.' Eight C-135 aircraft were ARIA modified and the crew could be up to 23 persons depending on the mission length and complexity. Early aircraft were deployed over the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico during Apollo launches and over the Pacific at splashdown. The first mission for all 8 aircraft together was during Apollo 6 in 1968. Typical missions lasted 10 hours and was limited only by the amount of fuel on board since they could not be fueled in flight. The aircraft were a success and proved to be reliable in their roll. One ship, #3704, is preserved at the USAF Museum at Wright-Patterson AFB Ohio.
