UPC Nakajima Ki-44 Tojo - (ex-Fujimi), 1/70, 8013-49

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$16   

From older but quality Fujimi molds. The model as never been started. The parts are either still in the factory sealed bag or have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. UPC stood for Universal Powermaster Corporation which was based out of New York City, NY. UPC did not cut their own molds, but bought kits already molded from other manufacturers and re-boxed the kits in the USA. Scott Eidson, the famous artist best known for his artwork with Revell, also did UPC box art in the 1960s. All UPC production ended in the 1970s.

Aurora Me-109 Brooklyn (Bf-109) - Famous Fighters of All Nations (Bf-109), 1/48, 55-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$595   

Very rare first issue. Of the Brooklyn series, this is usually considered the hardest kit to find. Inside, the kit is 100% correct with no rivet detail, no bombs and no landing gear. The color is the unique first run non-metallic medium red with clear canopy and stand. The stand is the correct square one marked 'Brooklyn.' The instructions are correct Brooklyn also, and the decals are the proper early 'Tatem Company' issue with the swastika. The box grades 'very good+++' It has four solid corners, no missing litho or litho tears, no repairs, no price tags or tape (other than the factory sealing tape). There is general light shelf and edge wear. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, 'very good++' decals and 'excellent' instructions. This kit must be shipped insured.

Aurora Northrop P-61 Black Widow, 1/48, 392-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$179   

Still mint in the factory seal. Hardbox issue dated 1960 - however, this issue lacks the 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo boarder and has a 198 price extension, so it likely from 1961. Large 1/48 scale kit. This has to be some of Jo Kotula most fantastic artwork - the P-61 patrols over a South Pacific island base at night, destroying an intruder (or defender?).

Hudson Miniatures 1910 International Harvester Passenger Car, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$85   

Very well detailed large 1/16 kit from 1949. Features plastic wheels, grill, headlamps, spotlight, running lights and other accessories and wooden main parts. Although all of Hudson's 1/16 kits have excellent detail, this one has even more detail than usual thanks to Hudson's engineers having access to the actual car owned by Mr. James Melton. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including detailed plans/instructions. As a note, few people even knew that International Harvester even made a passenger car. Not many were produced and very, very few are in existence. Jim Melton's car, the car examined by Hudson engineers, was likely given to him as a promotion as he was a popular opera singer and the star of International Harvester's radio show 'Harvest of the Stars'. The car was very solidly built to last and reportedly gave excellent service. Why IH did not pursue production is not known. Hudson Miniatures created a very popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well...so well that you could argue that Gowland & Gowland borrowed Hudson's subject matter for their ground-breaking 'Highway Pioneers.' The Hudson Miniatures 'Old Timers' even spawned a line of imitators, with Fador's 'Smallster' being one of the better in quality. Sales did drop on the appearance and popularity of the much smaller (and less accurate) Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved not to be a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own all-plastic, small-scale competition called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits.' The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Additionally, sales of the excellent wooden kits faltered further in the next few years with the introduction of accurate, 1/24 and 1/32 all-plastic cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue the wood kits and the plastic line was sold to Revell and subsequently re-released. Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. In the mid 1960s Aurora thought so highly of Hudson Miniatures that they purchased the wood kit assets and released a very small number of these in all-plastic models.

Heller SNECMA Coléoptère - Two Piece Box Issue, 1/48

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-

$600   

Very rare early Heller issue from the late 1950s. This is the two-piece high gloss box with very desirable artwork. Please note that on these early kits Heller did not assign kit numbers on the box. Very nicely molded kit in big 1/48 scale. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Please note that Heller did not issue decals with this early release. Shipping insurance is required. The Société National d'Etude et de Construction de Moteurs d'Aviation (SNECMA) Coléoptère was a French vertical take-off and landing design that was to make expensive (and vulnerable) airfields obsolete. A thrust ratio of greater than 1:1 was achieved, and tests began in 1956. The design did fly and stole the show at Le Bourget in June 1957. However, like the Lockheed Pogo, it proved to be dangerous and quite a handful to fly.
