KVZ Tu-134 'Crusty' Aeroflot Decals - Interflug Boxart, 1/100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$89   

Fantastic Cold War Box art. KVZ was the logo used by this East German kit manufacturer from 1969 to 1973. During this time, some unique Cold War kits were produced of Russian Airliners and Military Helicopters and Aircraft. Large and colorful decal sheet is in excellent condition. The kit is molded in white, clear, silver and black and includes full landing gear and a large display stand. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts, decals, stand and instructions. Please note that the box art is Interflug, but the kit decals are for Aeroflot.

ITC F-108 Rapier with Booster and Launching Platform, 1/89, 3663-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++++

$2250   

Very rare kit from 1960 in exceptional condition. The box is superb with factory gloss and color, four solid corners, no price tags, factory tape marks only with no tape tears or any litho tears. It is free of creases and 'dishing.' The only wear is a very small amount of corner and edge wear and light scuffs. The box bottom tray is exceptional as well. Very interesting kit with raised and recessed panel line detail. The kit comes with the proposed operating zero-length launching system and fall-away rocket booster. The booster is detachable from the F-108 (if you wish). The aircraft has moving canards and the launcher elevates to launching position then back to storage position. Molded in the correct ivory plastic with metal parts for the elevation mechanism. The kit includes the correct decals and instructions as well. The decals, spring and two metal shafts are still packed in the ITC factory bag. The instructions are excellent with typical yellowing, factory folds only and no tears or edge wear. Inside, the kit is in factory-new condition. It has not been started. It has been inventoried complete with every plastic part, metal part, decals and instructions and even the Ideal Quality 'Inspection Slip.' The F-108 was a proposed interceptor and escort for the B-70 tri-sonic bomber and ITC was quick to capitalize on this new design. The kit was produced quickly and the rest is history. When the F-108 hit the shelves, it did not look like the design. Photos had been released by the US Air Force of the mock-up that were not available when ITC made the molds. This and the cancellation of the F-108 program lead to a very short release life for the Rapier and ITC quickly pulled it from the shelves. NOTE: shipping insurance is required.

$85

Flaws include very light edge and corner wear, light scuffing and a tiny tape pull (1/4 by 1/4 inch) on one long side from the factory tape. Molded in dark wood brown. Like all Miniature Masterpieces kits, this one is very finely engraved and molded with excellent detail. The model includes detailed instructions, a rarity in the early 1950s. The kit has never been started. Inside it is like new with all parts still sealed in the factory 'krinkle' bag. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lou Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although having the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. However, there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954, making the one-year original issues very rare.
