Sterling Spitfire Mk.I Drops Bombs in Flight - 24 inch Wingspan for RC / Control Line / Freeflight, A19

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc


Still factory sealed. Larger scale for RC, free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically dropping bombs in flight. An excellent model featuring color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, rubber wheels, finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans/instructions and details on conversion to RC or control line. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they had the action features and included everything needed to complete the model.

Tamiya SU100 Assault Gun Motorized - (Su-100), 1/35, MT117

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Very rare, early issue. Please note Tamiya-Mokei early logo. The box is the desirable high-gloss issue and displays better than the 'very good' grade. But I gave it that grade because there is light general wear, and one short side has a 3/4" closed tear, as well as general side panel wear as well. Inside, the kit is as it left the factory. It has never been started. All the parts that were factory sealed are still sealed and the correct color headers on the bags are excellent. The small parts are bagged with a header; the all-metal gear box is bright as new and sealed as well. The TKK Mabuchi motor is present and still in a mint, early Mabuchi factory box. The modified motor mount is included in the factory sealed bag with the correction to the instructions. Only the (2) hull parts and treads were never sealed, and even the treads are 100% whole, 'near mint' and fully flexible. The instructions are 'near mint' and decals are still sealed in a bag and 'excellent.'
