Adams Saab 35 Draken - Supersonic Fighter (J-35), 1/48, K500-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Rare kit from 1959. Features retractable landing gear, opening canopy and missiles that actually launch from the central pod. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Adams was founded by Steve Adams and released plastic assembly kits in the late 1950s. The company was innovative and the general quality of most kits was very high for the time- so much that builders (not just collectors) still seek the kits today. Adams is best known today for a series of military vehicles and missiles, although they also released an aircraft (Draken), helicopter (YH-41), balloon (La Coquette) and ship (SS Savannah). Some of these appeared in gift sets as well. The Adams smaller scale (1/40) Atomic Cannon, Hawk Missile Battery, Honest John, Vanguard (1/80) and Thor (1/87)missiles and other kits are still sought after today. Combinations of these kits were issued in gift sets, which are very desirable collector's items today. In the late 1950s, Adams entered into a joint venture with Revell, and several of the military kits were released under the Revell label, such as the Jeep among others. Around 1960 there was a disagreement between Adams and Revell, and the agreement was terminated. Sometime after this, Adams quit the plastic model business, and Life-Like purchased most of the Adams molds.

Very nicely molded and detailed kit for that time with full decals and paint guide for both aircraft. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag including decals and instructions. The box cover aircraft is from 460/DET 1, a small but doubly-staffed unit that was directly subordinate in mission operations to 7th Air Force headquarters at Tan Son Nhut Air Base. Tan Son Nhut was part of the large combination air base and commercial international airport adjacent to the South Vietnamese capital of Saigon. RB-57E aircraft derived their nickname from their call-sign which was 'Patty Lynn.' There were only four aircraft assigned but each had two rotating air crews. Mission imagery (film) was processed by the 12th Reconnaissance Intelligence Technical Sq, which was also located at the 7th AF HQ complex. Nominally they were assigned to the Huge 460th Tactical Recon Wing, to which the 12th Tactical Recon Sq (RF-4Cs)was also assigned. (Thanks to John Barlow for the history!)

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.
