Wilhelmshaven TS Bremen (V) Ocean Liner 1958 - (ex-Pasteur 1938), 1/250, 1000

Cardstock Paper Model Kit

$32   

"Large scale, very highly detailed cardstock model. Beautifully color printed on 6 exceptionally large sheets of quality cardstock. No painting required - just build! Includes full instructions in German. Never started; nothing has been cut out and all the sheets are in excellent condition. 100% complete. NOTE: due to the very large sheets, this kit will be shipped rolled up in a tube unless you request otherwise. From Wikipedia: After a very active career as the French ocean liner Pasteur, she was acquired by North German Lloyd and renamed TS Bremen in 1957, she was extensively rebuilt at Bremer Vulkan in Bremen for approximately 65 millions DM. Her size was increased to 32,336 GRT and the load-carrying capacity with 8,700 tdw. She received new boilers and four turbines with a maximum output of 60,000 HP rendering a maximum speed of 26 knots. Economical output of 53,500 HP gave a very useful speed of 23 knots. Three 1,375 KVA generators had an output of 6,600 kilowatt. One very noticeable change was the new drop-shaped funnel, which was much more in proportion with the ship than the original tall funnel. To enhance comfort, two 4,50 m Stabilizers were fitted. In June 1959, she underwent new sea trials. The ship was very popular. She was sold January of 1972. After another refit, which changed her tonnage to 23,801 tons, the TSS Regina became the flagship of Chandris Cruises and inaugurated her Mediterranean service, calling at Limassol for the first time on May 19 and taking passengers from Cyprus to Beirut, Haifa, Heraklion, Piraeus, Katakolon, Corfu, Dubrovnik and Venice. Regina continued calling at Limassol regularly every two weeks and her cruises became extremely popular.She cruised the world until 1974, when she was laid up in Piraeus because of rising fuel costs and the loss of emigration charters to Australia. She later sank while being towed to the breakers.

Aurora Lockheed F-90 Fighter, 1/48, 33-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$149   

The box is in amazing 'near mint' condition with as-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no tape or tape marks, no price tags and no tears. The only flaw is very light corner and edge wear. Hardbox is dated 1958, but the logo tells us that this is a very late 1950 to early 1960s issue since the 'Famous Fighters' is not present in the oval logo but the sunburst still is. This issue has the correct triangle two-piece clear base as well as full landing gear and rockets. Molded in silver and clear. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. This is reissue of one of Aurora's first two kits (F-90 and F9F) which were copies of the Hawk molds.
