Revell A4D Skyhawk (A-4) - 'S' Issue, 1/51, H232-89
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++,   old
$159

1956 original issue 'S' kit. It is easy to see why the Revell kits of the 1950s are considered the apex of box artwork. The box is graded 'excellent++' with four solid, original corners an like-new color and gloss. There are no price tags and no litho tears. The only flaws are short pieces of clear tape on the long sides (where the box top was taped to the bottom)and very light wear as shown on the left. Molded in correct gloss gray, with the famous clear, round Revell 'Globe' stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Instructions and decals are 'excellent' and flat.

Heller Etendard IV with Automatic Landing Gear and Speed Brakes, 1/50
Heller Etendard IV with Automatic Landing Gear and Speed Brakes, 1/50
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-,   old
$275

Very rare large scale kit with fascinating operating features. Older issue from the late 1950s or early 1960s with high gloss box top artwork. The box is in investment-grade 'Near Mint-' condition. Colors are as bright as new, gloss is perfect and all four corners are solid. There are no price tags or tag marks. The model uses a complex series of 6 cogs and gears with wire springs and twine to make functioning landing gear and speed brakes. When you lower the arresting (tail) hook, the landing gear doors open and the nose and main wheels extend. When you raise the arresting hook, the landing gear retracts and the doors close. Furthermore, when you pull out the parachute release at the tail, the speed brakes lower. When you close it, the speed brakes close. The kit is molded in the correct silver for the airframe, white cogs, gears and pilot, clear two piece opening canopy, real rubber tires and metal springs. Never started. Inside, the kit is like new with all parts still sealed in the factory sealed bag. Decals and instructions are present and are excellent. Postal insurance is required for this kit.

Cleveland Boeing F4B3 / F4B4 / P-12B - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, M-29
Cleveland Boeing F4B3 / F4B4 / P-12B - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, M-29
Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc,   old
$155

This kit is odd as the outside kit number is M-29; inside, it is SF-29, the more familiar designation. After a closer look, this is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models and is in exceptional condition. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material, highest quality plans, all parts required for assembly and decals (if issued with the kit). The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The Cleveland Model and Supply Company played a pivotal role in the development of true scale models. In 1909 Bleriots English Channel flight caused a surge in aviation and model aircraft around the globe. Several companies were ideally positioned to take advantage of the aviation craze. In the USA, Wading River Manufacturing Co. (1909), White Aeroplane (1911), Ideal Model Aeroplane (1911), Broadfield Model Aeroplanes (1919) were among these pioneers, offering everything from plans and parts to complete kits and ARF models. Lindberghs 1927 crossing of the Atlantic Ocean caused an even bigger world-wide phenomenon called The Aviation Craze that extended up to the start of World War II. Many companies such as Megow, Guillow's and others started right around the time of Lindberghs flight. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - were generally not accurate scale representations. In 1929, a youngster named Ed Packard had a very advanced dream to produce incredibly accurate, true scale models that flew perfectly. This radical idea established the worlds longest running single-owner (77 years) model airplane supply business Cleveland Model and Supply Company. To this day, Cleveland models are treasured as the most accurate flying scale models produced. The fact that Mr. Packard started and successfully grew this business during The Great Depression is a testament to his ideals and business skill. I highly suggest the excellent book called Aviations great Recruiter Clevelands Ed Packard by H.L. (Herm) Schreiner. It is an excellent history of the man, his company and the times of the Golden Age of Model Aviation.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++,   old
$850

1959 first and only issue of this classic and rare kit. 102 parts. Contains models of all 18 aircraft all to a constant 1/240 scale. All aircraft have an in-flight configuration that is accurate down to the wing angle on the B-52. The display is made complete with all aircraft riding on 'Flight Wires' from the special blue stand. Features large full decal sheet. The box appears much better than the 'Good++' rating in the photos. The reason for the low rating is that one long side and one short side have several inches of bug damage. Never started. Complete with all parts, decals, stand, flight wires, instructions and 24 page Air Power booklet. NOTE: part #2, the F-86 vertical stabilizer, has the very small front tip broken off. The tip is missing. The decals have a factory flaw in that two of the 'USAF' markings have a printing smear.

MPC Pilgrim Observer Space Station Nuclear, 1/100, 9001
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++,   old
$155

Still factory sealed. This offering from MPC is one of the most interesting and a classic among Science Fiction kits. The model dates from 1975. Large 1/100 scale kit is 17 inch long, has excellent detail and a large clear section to show interior detail. Fourteen movable parts allow you to display or change the ship's configuration from "Launch" to "Earth's Atmosphere Entry" to "Space Cruise". Also contains complete 'technical' flight data, a report on the NERVA Nuclear Engine and an iron-on shirt transfer. There was a time when space research was not aimed at the earth's orbit and moon, but at distant planets in our solar system and eventually beyond. Planning went much further than most people are aware. The main limitation was seen as the chemical rocket motor. It could only be fired once and the specific impulse was limited. To overcome these limitations, the United States embarked on a large program to build the nuclear rocket engine. Unlike the nuclear aircraft engine, this program overcame the technical obstacles placed before it was VERY successful. The effort resulted in numerous test engines up through the Phoebes 5000 MW monster, which is still the world's most powerful reactor. The nuclear engines could run at full power for an hour, then be shut down and restarted up to a dozen times or more. Also, the flow of fuel (liquid hydrogen) could be regulated through turbo-pumps to 'throttle' the engine just as one does a car engine. Crew radiation shielding from the engine was less than requirements for cosmic ray shielding. At one point, a KIWI series reactor (KIWI-TNT) was blown up on purpose to test the environmental impact; it was minimal and clean up went quickly. The final result was to be a space rated engine called NERVA, or Nuclear Engine for Rocket Vehicle Application. Before the project was terminated, many vehicles were designed for deep space exploration based on these amazing engines.
O-Lin Republic Seabee Amphibian, 1/48, 503
O-Lin Republic Seabee Amphibian, 1/48, 503
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++++,   old
$145

Very rare kit for the advanced collector. The Seabee was produced as a high performance sport amphibian. This is a very hard-to-fine original O-line kit in the small box and advertisement for O-line cement on the top. Produced in 1949 or just before. O-Lin (Olin) was founded by Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen - hence the company name. Although a producer of flying models in the 1930s, O-line produced some of the earliest American injection molded kits in the late 1940s. In 1950 the partnership may have ended, because all branding was changed to Lindberg and Paul Lindberg. Inside, the kit is as new. It is molded in high gloss light gray and has the correct decals and instructions. The kit has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts, instructions and decals.

Aurora Piper Apache, 1/64, 280-39
Aurora Piper Apache, 1/64, 280-39
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++,   old
$145

1963 issue and still the only injection molded Apache kit. From ex-Comet molds. Features all recessed panel lines, clear windows, rotating propellers and color decals. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Aurora had started a line of inexpensive 29 cent kits in about 1957. The line was a success, and it was expanded. The line grew again when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, as most of Comet's line was very small scale kits, many of them civil aircraft like this one. It appears that Aurora was encouraged by the sale of the ex-Comet civil aircraft, as it expanded the line with it's own molds in the early 1960s.

MPC The Christie American Steam Fire Engine, 1/12, 1-2002
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint,   old
$175

Still factory sealed. The Christie was the backbone of the American fire-fighting force prior to World War 1 - she was in service in just about every major city. Walter Christie, the designer, was a noted race car driver and the father of front wheel drive technology. This fire engine is actually a development of his turn of the century horse drawn steam pumpers. This model was developed from a fully restored Christie redone by Community Fire company No.1 of Wayne, NJ. This is a highly detailed model which is 1/12 scale and is over 19 inches long when assembled. Features display stand, moldings in red, black, grey and clear, brass and nickel plated parts, decals for all stripes and letting, over 330 parts, decals and full instructions.

Vaccuformed Model Kit,   old
$9

Very high quality vacuform kit with moldings equal to or better than many injection molded models. Features very fine detail, complete cockpit, clear canopy, markings and painting guide and instructions/plans. NOTE: a professional vacuform builder has cut the parts out very neatly. A great many of them have been sanded and fit professionally but only 1/2 the cockpit and a drop tank have been built. Those who build vacuforms know that this is hours of work and represents a significant time savings when done right, which it is. Inventoried with all parts and instructions present. Significant modeling skill is required to build vacuform kit. Not recommended for beginners.
