William H Low Co Rumsey Service Hose Reel 1850 - Wilo Line Fire Trucks, 1/24, CR110

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+


Very rare. Has a box art variation from the other issue of CR110. Likely from the 1940s. William H Low Co., of Braintree Mass., issued the 'Wilo Line' which featured a superb series of antique commercial firefighting equipment, all in 1/48 scale. Bill Low was the designer of all kits and he was a superb model maker. The scale is given as 1/2" and the finished model wagon is approximately 7 inches long without the horse hitch and ~ 12 inches long with it. The kits were very advanced for the time and shared many of the pre-fabrication methods of Hudson Miniatures. Wilo Line kits features "all parts in this kit cut to size and shape." Includes plastic injection molded spoke wheels, precut and machined large and small wooden parts, beautiful, metal stock, a sealed bag of smaller parts including a great many more fully carved wood parts, metal parts and full size plans with numerous drawings and detailed text instructions. There is even a big photo of the actual prototype. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed small-parts bags with the non-sealed parts inventoried complete including instructions/plans. The kits in this line include Amoskeag Steamer, Hose Reel, Hose Wagon, Chemical Engine and many others. In most cases they are the only kits in existence of these historic vehicles. Bill Low did design at least one 'non-fire truck' kit in his Will-O-Line - a Conestoga Wagon, advertised as being 1/24 scale, kit #B14 for $2.85 list as "This is another Museum Piece by Bill Low." After seeing these fire truck kits, I do not doubt that.

Revell Hawker Typhoon MK 1B, 1/32, H266

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+


1970s release. Made in West Germany. Features full cockpit detail and hinged entry/exit door, detailed Napier Sabre Engine with removable engine cowl, movable wheels and prop and decals for British Ace Roland Beamont. Never started. Inventoried with all parts, decals and instructions present. The box shows much better than the 'very good+' grade but is graded such because there is clear tape on the box sides.

Dumas Essex Class Aircraft Carrier 36 Inches Long, 1/290

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Very, very rare kit from 1945. This is the only one I have ever seen or heard of. Dumas advertised this kit as 'A beautiful 36" model as accurate as possible under war conditions' and that was no idle boast. By all appearances it was the most detailed US aircraft carrier model ever made to that date. Features hollow construction, airwing, factory marked bulkhead balsa blocks, high quality balsa printwood, other wood as required, metal stock, rigging material, sandpaper, an unopened can of 'Delicate Gray' Gloss Enamel (with a 'Four Hour Drying Time") and a glass bottle of glue. Amazingly, the glue and paint area still both a liquid and not dried up. Comes with text instructions and plans. The two very large sheets of plans were drawn by Al Dumas Jr. They include full side and top elevation views, sectional views and a large number of detail drawings for AA guns, aircraft construction and much more. There is light bug damage to one side of one sheet but it is minor. The kit has not been started. The contents are mint - you will be the first to remove them from the box. They are still factory packed with factory packing paper. Dumas says inside this is an Essex-Class carrier, but due to wartime censorship and the initial secrecy surrounding the Essex class, the kit is not a perfect Essex. When more information became available after the war, this may have been why the model was discontinued so soon.

All recessed detail. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The canopy has been factory painted and is in perfect condition.

Airfix RMS Queen Elizabeth Ocean Liner, 1/600, 06201-9

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc


Still factory sealed. Nicely molded full-hull model with good details. The famous Queen Elizabeth was the largest liner in the world when launched in 1938. She saw extensive service during WWII as a troop transport. After the war, she and the original Queen Mary formed the backbone of Cunard Atlantic Service in unparalleled luxury. Some customers favored the Queen Elizabeth for her modern lines and more modern interior fittings. She was supposed to be on display in the USA on the opposite shore of the Queen Mary, but buyers never materialized. While serving as a 'College Ship' she burned in Hong Kong Harbor where she was scrapped, but only after appearing in a James Bond film as a MI-6 hide-out.

Hasegawa Sopwith Camel (F.1 Camel) - 1/8 Scale Museum Model Series, 1/8, CP-02

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++


Very rare and large 1/8 scale museum quality kit. The three 1/8 aircraft in this series are widely considered to be the finest model aircraft ever produced. This kit duplicates the classic Sopwith Camel using many of the original material in a near perfect representation of the inner structure of the aircraft. There are 1,198 parts made from die-cut plywood, Japanese cypress, cast soft metal, brass, aluminum, rubber, injection molded plastic and many other materials. The wingspan is 1067mm (42 inches) when assembled. The engineering of the kit is world-class right down to the assembly plans. Inside the kit has never been started. All parts are still sealed in the factory parts bags. Includes all plans, decals, instructions and paperwork. As an added precaution, I have carefully inventoried all small metal parts through the plastic bags as occasionally a bag will split open. They are confirmed to be 100% complete. Please note, this item must be shipped insured.

Revell Barnstormers! P-51D Mustang and Super Stearman - with Wing Walker and Diorama, 1/72, H666

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


Still factory sealed. 1976 issue. This kit is important because Revell was thoughtful enough to alter the venerable PT-17 molds to make a real Super Stearman. Includes new cowling/engine, scoops as required and more. This may be the only issue of the Super Stearman in this scale. Revell issued three of these 'Airshow' style kits in this year H664, H665 and H666. Each contained two aircraft and a color diorama base, backdrop and special stand. If you have all three kits, the three bases fit together to make a large Air Show diorama with all six aircraft.

Academy Space Shuttle with Boosters and External Fuel Tank, 1/288, 1639

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint


Still factory sealed. Nicely molded small-scale shuttle. Includes display stand.

Life-Like Robert E. Lee Mississippi Steam Boat - (ex-Pyro), 1/160, B237-800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


1970 issue from original Pyro molds. Very large and well detailed kit for that time. The race between the Lee and Natchez is considered a classic tale of The River. Although the Lee won, the circumstances were suspect and many people still considered the Natchez the fastest paddle-wheel packet ever. (For example, the Lee carried no payload and the Natchez was carrying passengers and a normal payload.) All details of the real ship, including the wooden railings and carvings are duplicated in plastic. Includes full rigging instructions and thread. Molded in tan and ivory plastic. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The very few parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals/flags and instructions. NOTE: parts are from the Life-Like issue, but the instructions and decals are from a newer Lindberg issue. This is ideal as a builder because you get the earlier mold quality, the Lindberg instructions are much better and the decals are fresh and also better than what Life-Like provided.

Revell F-15A 'Eagle' - USAF, 1/100, 4067

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Still factory sealed. Dated 1989 and features movable air intakes, cockpit detail, full landing gear, AIM-7 Sparrow missiles and with USAF markings.

Fujimi Messerschmitt Bf-109 G-6 Swiss Gustav, 1/48, 48001

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Still factory sealed. Very nicely molded kit. The box side says 'This kit is a faultlessly accurate reproduction of the Messerschmidt 109. Created from all-new, high-tech molds, the quality and precision of this model surpasses all predecessors.'

Revell B-24J Liberator Pacific Raider Issue, 1/92, H237-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


1965 copyright date hardbox issue of the famous 1954 "S" Buffalo Bill kit in Pacific colors and markings. This model was purchased new on May 3, 1966 in Cleveland, Ohio. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.
