Aurora Sikorsky S-55 Helo - (ex-Helicopters for Industry), 1/45, 503-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$225   

Second issue, likely from around 1962/63 because of the logo and 98 cent price extension. Has the same box art as the original issue but with the newer style logo (with no 'Famous Fighters' in the boarder) at the upper right. From the ex-Helicopters for Industry molds. Features fine raised detail, cockpit seats, instrument panel and control sticks, opening cabin door, floats with wheels and decals for US Air Force, Navy, Army or Marines. Molded in a stunning gloss dark blue and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

AMT The Monkeemobile Modified GTO - (The Monkees Mobile), 1/25, 605-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$125   

Rare original issue dated 1967. The original two 'mobiles were designed by Dan Jeffries, not George Barris. Both cars were used to promote the Monkees and the hit TV show. Features detailed 389 CID GTO engine with blower, molded underside with separate rear suspension and exhaust system, full custom interior, optional touring car convertible top, custom wheels and Monkees keychain. Molded in the correct dark gloss red, clear, chrome and with real rubber tires. The chrome is 'excellent++.' The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the decals are complete and intact but the background paper is stained and there are a few small parts lifting. I have put them in a zip lock to keep them intact. The box top is actually 'excellent' but I have graded the box 'good++' because there are water stains on the box bottom (box tray).

Complete with rigging material and chains (factory sealed), rat lines, decals (excellent), flags and rigging instructions & assembly instructions (both excellent). Even includes the excellent small booklet on the Cutty Sark. Vac sails are in superb 'excellent++' condition which is rare.

Dumas Essex Class Aircraft Carrier 36 Inches Long, 1/290

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$295   

Very, very rare kit from 1945. This is the only one I have ever seen or heard of. Dumas advertised this kit as 'A beautiful 36" model as accurate as possible under war conditions' and that was no idle boast. By all appearances it was the most detailed US aircraft carrier model ever made to that date. Features hollow construction, airwing, factory marked bulkhead balsa blocks, high quality balsa printwood, other wood as required, metal stock, rigging material, sandpaper, an unopened can of 'Delicate Gray' Gloss Enamel (with a 'Four Hour Drying Time") and a glass bottle of glue. Amazingly, the glue and paint area still both a liquid and not dried up. Comes with text instructions and plans. The two very large sheets of plans were drawn by Al Dumas Jr. They include full side and top elevation views, sectional views and a large number of detail drawings for AA guns, aircraft construction and much more. There is light bug damage to one side of one sheet but it is minor. The kit has not been started. The contents are mint - you will be the first to remove them from the box. They are still factory packed with factory packing paper. Dumas says inside this is an Essex-Class carrier, but due to wartime censorship and the initial secrecy surrounding the Essex class, the kit is not a perfect Essex. When more information became available after the war, this may have been why the model was discontinued so soon.

AMT Lockheed AC-130H Spectre Hercules, 1/72, 8690

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$115   

Highly detailed with (2) M61A Vulcan 20mm rotary cannons, (1) 40mm Bofars Cannon and (1) 105mm Howitzer, complete cockpit and full interior, ecm pods, engine infrared shields, Suu-4A pods, ALQ-87 pods and full decals. All recessed detail. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The canopy has been factory painted and is in perfect condition.

Hasegawa Sopwith Camel (F.1 Camel) - 1/8 Scale Museum Model Series, 1/8, CP-02

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$1200   

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 Sopwith Camel using many of the original material in a near perfect representation of the inner structure of the aircraft. There are 1,198 parts made from die-cut plywood, Japanese cypress, cast soft metal, brass, aluminum, rubber, injection molded plastic and many other materials. The wingspan is 1067mm (42 inches) when assembled. The engineering of the kit is world-class right down to the assembly plans. Inside the kit has never been started. All parts are still sealed in the factory parts bags. Includes all plans, decals, instructions and paperwork. As an added precaution, I have carefully inventoried all small metal parts through the plastic bags as occasionally a bag will split open. They are confirmed to be 100% complete. Please note, this item must be shipped insured.

Life-Like Robert E. Lee Mississippi Steam Boat - (ex-Pyro), 1/160, B237-800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$125   

1970 issue from original Pyro molds. Very large and well detailed kit for that time. The race between the Lee and Natchez is considered a classic tale of The River. Although the Lee won, the circumstances were suspect and many people still considered the Natchez the fastest paddle-wheel packet ever. (For example, the Lee carried no payload and the Natchez was carrying passengers and a normal payload.) All details of the real ship, including the wooden railings and carvings are duplicated in plastic. Includes full rigging instructions and thread. Molded in tan and ivory plastic. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The very few parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals/flags and instructions. NOTE: parts are from the Life-Like issue, but the instructions and decals are from a newer Lindberg issue. This is ideal as a builder because you get the earlier mold quality, the Lindberg instructions are much better and the decals are fresh and also better than what Life-Like provided.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$42   

Purchased new in 1972. Large scale issue for rubber or gas free flight, or easily converted to RC using today's tiny and light servos and receivers. Box art is by Locher, who did a great deal of the Monogram box artwork also. Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction with all die cut parts, 'Tube-O-Matic' fuselage construction and 'Rugged Super X Simplified Non-Warping Wing' construction, colorful insignia, detailed full size plans, building instructions, wheels, hardware, tissue and propeller. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

$125

Kit includes fuselage, wings, elevators, rudder all cut to shape, sandpaper and a small parts bag with propeller, wheels, etc. The kit has never been started.

Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacture. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - usually only a quick sanding would finish them.
