Monogram Lockheed P-38L / P-38M / P-38J / F-5 Lightning - Four Star Issue, 1/48, PA97-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$74   

Very rare. This kit is still factory sealed on the inside as a special display for experiment. On bigger kits (B-52, Phantom Huey and Mustang, etc), Monogram would seal the parts in clear with the lower box, then leave the box top unsealed so that potential buyers could see the kit 'insides' before purchasing. I did not know they did it with smaller kits and this is the first one I have seen. It is not a reseal as the cello is of the old heavy type and brittle. Please note the Uncle Bill's Hobby Shop (Cleveland, Ohio) price tag on the box top and the purchase date of 9-6-1966. First issue hardbox copyright dated 1964. Very highly detailed and well molded kit. Builds any of four versions including 2-Seat Night Fighter, day fighter, 'Droop Snoot' with bomber nose and F5 photo recon version.

Revell Lockheed ASW P-3A Orion, 1/115, H163-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$44   

Hardbox issue is copyright dated 1965. Purchased new on May 12, 1966 at S.S. Kresge Department Store in Cleveland, Ohio. The flaws in the Lockheed Electra airliner ensured that it had a short service life in commercial service. But the sound design was modified into one of the most successful and long-serving of all ASW aircraft - the Orion. Revell seized upon this opportunity to recoup some of the money sunk into the Electra molds. The molds were modified to make this kit, the 'A' version of the venerable patrol aircraft. Features optional position landing gear and loading door and movable wheels and props. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete. 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 compared to other manufacturers.

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 'Big City' model wagon is approximately 7 inches long without the horse hitch and ~ 13 inches long with it.

Includes plastic injection molded spoke wheels, precut and machined large and small wooden parts, beautiful, fully finished fire extinguishers, 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.

After seeing these fire truck kits, I do not doubt that.
