Pyro Blunderbus Pistol Pirate's Favorite Weapon, 1/1, G228-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-


First issue hardbox with great artwork and from the early 1960s. The original owner opened the box but carefully left the seal on the box top, so it is superb condition. The only flaw is a short crease on one long side - otherwise I would have graded it 'mint.' This is a full-size 15 inch long copy of the actual weapon. Molded in bronze/antique gold and a beautiful very dark swirl wood brown. The kit has never been started. The gold parts are still in the factory sealed bag and the brown parts have been inventoried complete with instructions. In addition to cars, ships, planes and figures, Pyro added an excellent line of well-known and not-so-well-known life-sized (1/1) scale pistol and rifle models to their line. In each case Pyro gained access to the actual weapon during the kit design, insuring a very accurate model.

Aurora Boeing F4B-4 - (F4B4), 1/48, 122-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Sale Pending
Email for availability.

SALE!! Jo Kotula boxart is dated 1958 but judging from the 79 cent price extension, this kit is from the middle 1960s. In the day this was considered a fine kit and rated highly in reviews. The F4B-4 was a classic 1930s Navy Biplane Fighter that is still famous for their colorful paint jobs at that that time. Cowl, tail and trim color would vary with the group's Aircraft Carrier (Ranger, Lexington or Saratoga and the aircraft's position in the flight formation. The kit has never been started. NOTE: Missing two small wing bombs. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts present and decals and instructions.

Heller Pamir, 1/150, 80804

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++


Still sealed. Very large and highly detailed kit with 738 parts. Measures 75cm (~30 inches) in length and 40cm (~16 inches) high when assembled. Full hull kit includes display stand, fantastic deck and fittings detail, railings, detailed masts with separate yards, billowing vac sails, full rigging supplies, numerous rigging diagrams and pin diagrams and full building instructions. The Pamir was bulit in 1905 at Blohm & Voss shipyards to become the 51st ship in the fleet of R.F. Laeisz of Hamberg ("The Flying P Line" was a reference to the starting letter of most of the ships names and the numerous records that they held). She was a four masted barque of 4425 tons with a crew of 33. She saw extensive trade service between the wars and served in both World Wars. After WWI she was given away as compensation; however her original owner bought her back in the 1920s. Before WWI she was sold to a Finnish cereal shipping fleet. Her beauty saved her from torpedoes from a Japanese Submarine - the Commander simply could not sink so wonderful a ship. In her 40th year of existence, the Pamir was bought with the Passat by a Dutch demolition crew. Yet at the last moment the West German merchant marine bought both ships to train cadets in the 1950s. The Pamir was lost in an Atlantic storm in 1957.

Lindberg Nautilus Atomic Submarine, 704

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Rare first issue hardbox with script Lindberg logo. In the 1930s, Paul Lindberg was designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft like so many other men and boys of the time. His plans appear in Popular Aviation magazine and he made a good name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kits sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the early artists for O-lin. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg had control and had his name as the logo. The first logo is the one on this kit - 'Lindberg' in script with 'Products' arched across the top and 'Incorporated' arched across the bottom to create a broken circle around the script. Ray Gaedke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg, such as the box painting for the Nautilus here. The Nautilus appears to be the first sea vessel that Lindberg cut it's own molds for - the Chris Craft Express Cruiser, PT Boat, LST and Fleet Submarine (Ex-Varney) were done by O-lin. The model is an interesting work of fact and fiction - it includes a deck gun and what looks like a Regulus II missile for the deck! The scale is not known but it measures about 12 inches long when assembled. The model has never been started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Bay Ridge Model Airplane Supply Bay Ridge Diamond Demon - 48 inch Winspan Class B Free Flight or R/C Conversion

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


1930s or 1940s free flight kit. Oddly enough, the plans say that Consolidated made this kit, where as the box top states that it is Bay Ridge Model Airplane Supply Company. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. Complete with all parts, plans and decals (if originally included).

Revell Bell P-39 Airacobra - 'S' Issue, 1/45, H222-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+


1955 'S' issue. Very nice kit for that time in near 1/48 scale. Features very fine recessed and raised panel lines, detailed pilot figure and optional position cockpit door and a belly drop tank. Molded in beautiful high-gloss olive drab and clear with the Revell 'Globe' base. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Richard Kishady did the famous painting for this kit and originally included German kill markings on the nose of the P-39. Very shortly after this, Revell began to export kits to Europe and many European countries had banned the swastika - so the box art was changed to Japanese kill markings, which is this issue.
