Excellent quality kit that builds into a realistic model. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Includes figures of Capt. Scott and Capt. Black, the famous Comet pilots who won the 1934 MacRobertson Air Race from England to Australia. The DH-88 was designed specifically for this race and performed wonderfully.

Revell Vostok - Russia's First Spacecraft, 1/24, H1844-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++


1969 issue. Very large 1/24 scale. Well detailed kit of Major Yuri Gagarin's spacecraft. Features detachable crew compartment, ejecting seat and Cosmonaut figure. Molded in metallic silver and clear and includes display stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Revell did not issue decals with this kit. Gagarin's flight was the first of 6 successful Vostok launches from the secret space center at Baikonur. Gagarin made one orbit in 108 minutes, which was enough to make him the first man in space. Titov followed in Vostok 2 and made 17 orbits. Other launches featured 4 mile passes in orbit, and Vostok 6 featured the first Woman Astronaut, Valentina Tereshkova. It is interesting that Vostok did not have attitude control for correct placement when re-entering the earth's atmosphere. The sphere was designed with the weight off-center, so it would automatically swing into position during the heat of reentry.

MPC TBD-1 Devastator - VT-5 USS Yorktown (CV-5), 1/72, 2-2109

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++


Features interior detail, crew members, optional position canopies, rotating wheels and prop, optional bomb or torpedo configurations and folded or unfolded wings. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. This kit is from quality Airfix molds and is from the MPC 'Air Combat Collection', which includes ground crew. Dates from the mid 1970s. Note that this issue does not have 'Craft Master' under the MPC logo. Before this, MPC was marketing Airfix kits under the Craftmaster name in the USA. This continued for several issues and was finally discontinued (possibly with this issue) although MPC continued to distribute Airfix models.

Hasegawa Fokker DR.1 (DR-1) Triplane Museum Model - 1/8 Scale, 1/8, ZX3-69800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Very rare and large 1/8 scale museum quality kit. The three 1/8 aircraft in this series are widely considered to be the finest model aircraft ever produced. This kit duplicates the classic DR-1 using many of the original material in a near perfect representation of the inner structure of the aircraft. There are 857 parts made from die-cut plywood, Japanese cypress, cast soft metal, brass, aluminum, rubber, injection molded plastic and many other materials. The wingspan is 838mm (33 inches) when assembled. The engineering of the kit is world-class right down to the assembly plans. This kit has never been started. Inside, all the special internal boxes and inserts are included and in mint condition. Additionally, the vast majority of the parts are still in the factory sealed bags. The parts that were not sealed have been inventoried 100% complete. Includes all paperwork - illustrated parts list, instructions and three sets of roll-out plans. NOTE: plan set 'B' is in fair condition. It is complete but has wrinkles and some closed tears. Plans 'A' and 'C' are professionally printed copies of original Hasegawa plans from my collection. Please note, this item must be shipped insured.

Orange Crush-Revell 1910 Studebaker Cupe Electro (Electric Coupe), 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair++


Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacture. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

Monogram Apollo Saturn V Rocket - Young Astronauts Issue, 1/144, 5903

1986 issue from the original 1968 molds. The best Saturn in 1/144 scale due to the excellent detail that Monogram was famous for.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Aurora N-156 (F-5) Freedom Fighter, 1/48, 140-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint Sealed


Still factory sealed and in investment-grade condition. 1962 issue with fantastic Jo Kotula box artwork. This kit is a very good representation of the rare 'Freedom Fighter' prototype N-156. It developed into the F-5, which was widely exported and saw service in over 30 countries. Only three of the N-156 prototypes were built. The design centered around two GE J85 turbojets which originally powered the ADM-20 Quail decoy carried by the B-52 fleet. Initially there seemed to be little demand until President Kennedy's Military Assistance Program required a low-cost fighter that could be provided to US Allies. The N-156 was easily the top choice. It was renamed the F-5 and the rest is history - it became one of the most widely used fighter/bombers in post-WWII history and is still in service in some air forces. Kit includes pilot, cockpit and instrument panel and three drop tanks and early AIM-9 Sidewinder Air-to-Air Missiles.

Blue Water Navy USS Houston CA30 (Northampton Class Heavy Cruiser) - February 1942 Battle of the Java Sea (CA26 / Chester CA27 / Louisville CA28 / Chicago CA29 / Augusta CA31), 35019

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Very high quality model and still the only 1/350 scale Houston. BWN said they made the finest ship models available and it was no idle boast. The master was researched in depth and built to museum standards. In making the molds, the silicone was de-aired in a vacuum chamber; then the resin was pressure cast. This method makes for virtually air-bubble-free parts with flawless detail. Scale fidelity and historical accuracy are top-rate throughout. Requires assembly and painting - photo shows assembled and painted model. Includes museum quality resin castings, metal castings and a large fret of photoetched brass parts. Can be built waterline or full hull. Includes very good pictorial and text instructions. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions.

Renwal Antoinette 1908 Monoplane and Voisin Farman 1908 Biplane, 1/72, 212-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Hard to find. Early hardbox issue from the late 1950s/early 1960s. Kit includes both models. The Antoinette was the first plane in the world to attain an altitude of 500 feet, and the Voisin made the first city-to-city powered flight. These are unique and accurate kits. The original internal frame structure and details of the aircraft is built from injection molded plastic. When complete, it is covered with a very strong fabric which is included. The result is a very realistic aircraft. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.
