Revell HMS Campbeltown (USS Buchanan), 1/240, H450
Revell HMS Campbeltown (USS Buchanan), 1/240, H450
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint,   old
$89

Still factory sealed. 1971 issue. Large scale and highly detailed kit of the historic four-pipe destroyer. Originally the USS Buchanan Four-Piper, she was traded in the famous Lend-Lease program for the use of British bases. On March 8, 1942, the Campbeltown sailed up the Loire River. Her mission was to destroy the Normandie Drydock, a possible haven for the Tirpitz which was holed up on Norway at this time. The Campbeltown was disguised as a German warship and the bow was packed with 8500 lbs of high explosive depth charges. Under a RAF diversion, Campbeltown fought her way up the river and rammed the dock doors at full speed. Charges at the stern sank the back of the ship and she was wedged in the dock. During a German inspection 8 hours later, the charges went off, scattering parts of the ship up to one mile away. The dock was rendered useless to the Tirpitz, who now had to stay in Norway.

Monogram Little Air Force Assortment Gift Set - Speedee-Bilt F-51 (P-51) / F6F and Superkit F-51 and F-84
Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM,   old
$1200

Very rare 1950s "pre-injection molded" gift set. Long before injection molded kit were made in the USA, Monogram produced perhaps the finest pre-fabricated wooden kits with plastic details. The Speedee-Bilt series were flying models with pre-painted and cut wooden parts with plastic props, cowls, pilots, etc. The Superkits were smaller static models with precarved wooden parts and many plastic details. The kits themselves are rare today, but the gift set is very rare. Monogram issued very few gift sets for injection kits, and even fewer in the early 1950s for the wooden kits. The gift set consists of a special 'Christmas' box with a tray and lift-off top with a cello window. This one contains 2 Superkits (F-84 Thunderjet and F-51 Mustang) and 2 Speedee-Bilts (the F6F Hellcat and F-51 Mustang). The outer box is near mint and in investment grade condition - which is amazing considering the age of the set. Even the original cut-out add for MonoDope and MonoGlue is present. The four kits are in mint boxes and have never started. Each is 100% inventoried complete with all parts/decals and instructions present.
Heller Dunkerque Battlecruiser, 1/400, L1025
Heller Dunkerque Battlecruiser, 1/400, L1025
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++,   old
$350

Rare. The Dunkerque-class Battlecruisers were the French response to the German Graf Spee-class and the fast and well-armed Italian ships at the time. If the 1900 to 1930 span of French shipbuilding could be defined as lacking a clear vision or plan, the Strasbourg and her sister decisively ended that period. The products of superior design and engineering, the two sisters would re-define fast capital ships as would their near-sisters Battleships Richelieu and Jean Bart after them. But world events would conspire against these beautiful ships and there visibility in naval history. The Dunkerque was laid down on 24 Dec, 1932 at St. Nazire, launched on 2 Oct, 1935 and put into service on 15 Apr, 1937. Displacement was 26,500 ton and top speed was 30 knots. Main armament was (8) 330mm guns and (16) 130 mm dual purpose. The main and secondary guns were mounted in the first quadruple turrets. Both main 330 mm turrets faced forward and had almost unlimited arcs of fire - so that all main guns could fire when the enemy was sighted or in pursuit. Her superior speed would allow her to escape anything that she could not out-gun. Like most advanced ships of the day she featured the 'All-Or-Nothing' armor design or 'armored box'. The compact design and placement of the main and secondary armament allowed unusually high armor protection for a battlecruiser. Serious consideration was also given to underwater protection, and the ships had a unique and effective (as events would prove) anti-mine/torpedo system with a novel water-exclusive material. At Mers-El-Kebir, the Dunkerque was pinned at the pier. The British fired 15 inch shells, which the Dunkerque's deck armor was surprisingly resistant to. In an unlucky set of events, the auxiliary ship Terre Neuve moored next to her was sunk during the battle with a full load of depth-charges. Later, a torpedo set off the huge explosive cargo. The damage to Dunkerque was immense. She was hastily repaired and fled to Toulon, where she was joined by the hastily repaired Strasbourg. The French tried to repair Dunkerque as best they could but the wartime resources and material were very limited. However, when the Germans threatened to seize the ships, the entire fleet including the two sisters was scuttled in the harbor. The Italians raised the Strasbourg and stripped her of her guns; but she was bombed and sunk by Allied aircraft. In 1945 she was raised again, but salvage was beyond hope. In 1959 she was sold for scrap. Kit has never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

But world events would conspire against these beautiful ships and there visibility in naval history. The Strasbourg was begun in 1934 at St. Nazire, launched in 1936 and put into service in 1939. She never navigated in peacetime. Displacement was 26,500 ton and top speed was 30 knots. Main armament was (8) 330mm guns and (16) 130 mm dual purpose.

Later, a torpedo set off the huge explosive cargo. The damage to Dunkerque was immense. Other ships would have sunk, but she did not. Strasbourg was the only capital ship to get underway during the disaster at Mers-El-Kebir. Her superior speed allowed her to escape while two other French Battleships were sunk. She fled to Toulon, where she was eventually joined by the hastily repaired Dunkerque.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor,   old

Otherwise the kit is complete with all parts and instructions. Berkeley is a very famous manufacture of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Aurora Lockheed F-90 - West Hempstead Issue, 1/48, 33-89
Aurora Lockheed F-90 - West Hempstead Issue, 1/48, 33-89
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+,   old
$280

Very, very early West Hempstead F-90 molded in Brooklyn gray. When Aurora issued it's first two plastic kits, they were copies of the Hawk Model Company's F9F and F-90 fighters. The first Aurora issue was in the rather plain and very rare flip-top one-piece box with the kit molded in gray with no landing gear and missiles from the Brooklyn factory. The second issue was also from Brooklyn and molded in gray with no landing gear or missiles but was in the new two-piece hardbox. The third official issue is the West Hempstead issue and is molded in silver with landing gear and missiles. But this is where it gets interesting. Aurora ran a tight ship and was famous for letting nothing go to waste. If there were extra boxes laying around after the new issue came out, there were used. The same went for old stands, old decals and even old injection molded kits. This gives the collector some very interesting scenarios. This kit is one of those. This is a Brooklyn 'Famous Fighters' box for the F-90. However, under the original tissue paper is a GRAY molded West Hempstead issue with landing gear and missiles- a case of using up the old plastic after doing a mold change. Plastic was delivered by rail car and stored in silos - a silo could last a long time and feed several mold machines. The decals are old Brooklyn with the correct large TATEM COMPANY script on the back. The stand is the large, clear rectangular Booklyn two-piece version, but during the mold modifications, Aurora machined the 'Brooklyn' markings from the mold and of course the stand. The instructions are the modified Brooklyn- they show the landing gear and missiles but with 'West Hempstead' under the old logo. An interesting piece for the advanced collector. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
