Aurora Japanese Sub I-19, 1/275, 728

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+


1972 'Big A' box issue. Large scale kit is almost 16 inches long when assembled. This is an excellent model from Aurora's efforts of the late 1960s/early 1970s. Aurora knew that the old 1950s kits were outclassed by the late 60s and cut a new series of molds including several ships, helicopters and subs. The result was high mold quality and very good detail for that time, as represented by this kit. Includes large display stand, decals, periscope and cranes, conning tower and deck guns. Never started. NOTE: missing Glen seaplane body (floats are present). Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions present. The I-19 is famous for firing history's most successful torpedo spread off Guadalcanal. On September 14, 1942, the I-19 was patrolling of the Solomons when she fired a 6 torpedo spread. Three hit and sank the US Carrier CV-7 WASP, and the remaining three exploded against the BB North Carolina and the destroyer O'Brien. The destroyer sank and the North Carolina had to be repaired at Pearl till November 16, 1942. The I-19's Glen seaplane also flew night reconnaissance on February 23, 1942 over Pearl Harbor for the planned second attack by Emily flying boats on that base.

Revell 1917 Ford Model T - Pull-Toy with Backfire Action, 1/16

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor


For the advanced Revell collector. Revell was a toy maker long before they teamed with Gowland & Gowland for the first Highway Pioneers series that revolutionized the hobby of mainstream model building. Revell's associated with Gowland went back to the pure toy days before injection molded models. One such creation in 1950 was a large scale 1/16 Maxwell automobile. The toy was a huge success. Then the Highway Pioneers took off...but Revell was not ready to give up on toys yet. In 1952 they issued a 1/16 scale counterpart to the Maxwell- this 1917 Model T Ford. It has a very unique features - when you pull the tow cord, it backfires! On the bottom is a cap gun style mechanism and the 'bang!' is made by real gunpowder from caps. The Ford is in perfect condition. There are no cracks, warps, missing parts or scratched paint. it is a little dirty, however. On the underside, the cap mechanism is as new and works flawlessly. The box is poor - it is tattered and missing the top. The instructions on both sides for the cap loading are still legible.

Maircraft Douglas DC-3 United Airlines' Mainliner 180 - Scale Solid Model Kit, 1/48, X-2

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


One of the rarest and most valuable aircraft models in US history, and certainly the finest solid model ever produced. The add from Model Airplane News in 1947 states 'MUCH MORE THAN A MODEL - IT'S A MINIATURE AIRPLANE!' - and it's true. Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. The company continued to produce the usual solid models, but plastics were coming into play and plastic was not considered a 'strategic war material'. Maircraft decided to produce a deluxe kit with more injection molded details and soon the excellent P-61 Black Widow kit was born. The kit came out in 1945 and was priced very high for the time. The P-61 must have sold, as the next project was determined to be the DC-3. Development of this great kit must have taken 1/2 a year or more although the exact time frame is unknown. Maircraft started to run adds in late 1946 modeling magazines with a 'price to be announced' statement; the January Model Airplane News add showed the whopping price of $9.95 - almost unheard of during that time. Maircraft's timing for such a wonderful model was unfortunate - almost all model manufactures predicted a huge boom in sales once the war ended and the opposite occurred, causing poor sales and high inventory levels. Maircraft went out of business shortly after introduction of the DC-3. I purchased this model from the original owner who purchased it new in 1947. This kit has never been started and is complete. The box is complete, has great colors, no tears, solid original corners and some litho bubbling. There is no fading, stains, writing or tears in the cardboard or the litho. The box is slightly crunched as it appears that someone place a heavier box on it at one point, but it's not serious. The kit is 100% complete and has never been touched. All internal display packing cardboard is intact. All injection molded details are still factory-affixed to the red display - landing gear and braces, two exhaust stacks, main wheels, rear baggage door and door frame, two air scoops, two cowls, two props, two P&W engines, forward cargo door and door frame, tail wheel, VHF Range and Glide Path antenna, loop antenna, two clear landing lights, main entrance door and door frame, tail wheel well and strut, two oil coolers and two clear landing lights. For the wooden parts, high quality balsa is used. Wings and stabilizers are cut to profile, except the center wing section was finished to an airfoil by the factory. Engine nacelles and fuselage sections are pre-cut and about 70% to shape. Many other stock wooden parts are factory pre-carved parts are present as well. The elaborate 'Douglas DC-3 Complete Template Sheet' is intact. Clear window material for cabin windows is included and the bag of hardware is still factory sealed. Paperwork is complete and excellent as well - the 'missing parts' sheet, 'Note from the Engineering Staff' brochure and 'Douglas DC-3 Illustrated Instruction Brochure' book are all in excellent condition with light foxing as the only flaw. The plans - the crowning glory of the model - are perhaps the most accurate ever produced outside of Douglas Aircraft Company. They are in excellent condition and have probably been opened two or three times judging from the lack of wear. The large decal sheet is near mint and even lacks the traditional yellowing or curling. Please note that the fuselage is hollow when built and full details are provided for cockpit and cabin detail and notes on lighting the model. A true investment-quality piece of modeling history for the advanced collector or museum. For the protection of the buyer this model will only be shipped via Express Mail Insured.
