MPC Junkers Ju-87B Stuka Profile Series - 2/Trop. 4/St.G2 'Immelmann' Libya 1941 - Gruppe Stuka Geschwader Z 'Immelmann' Eastern Front - 2/Trop. 1/St G1 Libya 1941, 1/72, 2-1107-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$22   

1970s issue of the popular 'Profile Series.' Very cleanly molded kit with decals for all three aircraft listed. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag including decals and instructions. The decals are 'excellent' which is rare. Airfix molded these kits in England, sealed them in bags and shipped them to MPC. MPC added the decals, instructions and box and marketed them through numerous outlets in the USA including hobby shops, grocery stores, dime stores and department stores. This arrangement with Airfix was older than the Profile Series, dating back to when the very colorful Airfix 'Craftmaster' kits were marketed in the USA.

The parts that were not factory sealed (white tree only) have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions.

Hawk Boeing P-26A Peashooter - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, 17

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$44   

For the advanced Hawk collector. Hawk was one of the few manufacturers making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48. However, the company was innovative as it quickly included injection molded accessories. This kit dates from the 1930s and contains a very nice three-dimension profile cut wooden fuselage (most manufacturers only cut them in two dimensions if at all), two dimension profile cut wings, wheel pants, rudder and elevator, completely finished wood cowl and wheels/tires, cast metal prop, sealed tube of glue, a cardstock pilot, backrest, throttle quadrant and instrument panel, full color insignia sheet, full size, well-detailed plans and two tubes of factory glass paint vials - one red and one blue. Each have the original cork stopper installed. The red one has spilled some paint on the inside of the box. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box sides show 'Railroad Models', 'Airplane Models' and 'Boat Models' as part of the Hawk line, which probably places the date of this kit around the late 1930s.

Hudson Miniatures 1903 Rambler Old Timers, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$85   

Very well detailed large 1/16 kit from 1949. Features plastic wheels, lights, other accessories and wooden main parts and occasionally metal parts and cardstock. Although all of Hudson's 1/16 kits have excellent detail, this one has even more detail than usual thanks to Hudson's engineers having access to the actual car. The small parts are still factory bag sealed and the other parts have been inventoried complete with all parts, plans and instructions. Hudson Miniatures created a very popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well...so well that you could argue that Gowland & Gowland borrowed Hudson's subject matter for their ground-breaking 'Highway Pioneers.' The Hudson Miniatures 'Old Timers' even spawned a line of imitators, with Fador's 'Smallster' being one of the better in quality. Sales did drop on the appearance and popularity of the much smaller (and less accurate) Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved not to be a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own all-plastic, small-scale competition called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits.' The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Additionally, sales of the excellent wooden kits faltered further in the next few years with the introduction of accurate, 1/24 and 1/32 all-plastic cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue the wood kits and the plastic line was sold to Revell and subsequently re-released. Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. In the mid 1960s Aurora thought so highly of Hudson Miniatures that they purchased the wood kit assets and released a very small number of these in all-plastic models.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Revell Stag Hound Clipper Ship, 1/216, H361

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$49   

Very nicely detailed like all early Revell sailing ships. Full hull kit with premolded ratlines, optional sails and extensive rigging instructions. The kit has never been started. The parts are all still in the internal factory sealed bag. Includes instructions and vacuform sails in 'excellent' condition. The Stag Hound was designed by the famous Donald McKay and was launched on December 7, 1850. She is famous for her great speed and turned a nice profit for her owners. The most notable event was when the Stag Hound was asked to take a copy of President Lincoln's inaugural address to London. During this run, she raced the steamer 'America' and won easily. Shortly after this she was lost off Brazil to a spontaneous combustion of her coal cargo. The crew successfully abandoned ship. The captain was the last to leave. He lowered the American Flag, wrapped it around himself and jumped overboard.

Aurora Convair F-102 Dart - (YF-102 Delta Dagger), 1/121, 290-29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$45   

Hardbox issue dated 1957 but probably from the early 1960s since the oval Aurora logo does not have 'Famous Fighters' in the outline. The box is in excellent condition. Small scale kit with dramatic Jo Kotula box artwork. Nicely molded kit with clear canopy, full landing gear and display stand. This is a model of the very early YF-102 prototype with the straight (non-area rule) fuselage. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Around this time, Aurora issued a series of inexpensive (usually 29 cent) small scale kits that were designed to sell at almost any type of retail location. The line was successful and further expanded - when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they fit in nicely with this established line.
