Airfix Boeing 314 Pan Am Clipper - 'Dixie' or BOAC 'Berwick', 1/144, 04172-6

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$34   

Type four logo box, likely from the 1980s. An excellent kit for that time. Has decals for both aircraft. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: one prop blade is cleanly broken at the hub; the blade is present. In the 1930s Pan Am was a household word in the USA for their romantic foreign routes and the glamorous 'China Clippers' that crossed the Pacific Ocean, stopping at such ports as Wake Island. Pan Am's attention soon turned to the Atlantic. Since non-stop service would be needed, a new aircraft was designed. The Boeing 314 was chosen. This huge flying boat started flying the Atlantic mail in 1939 with a trip over 26 hours long. Before the war, the 314 fleet flew the Pacific, Atlantic and other routes. The airliner was a palace compared to the cramped jets and limited service of today. The flight deck compared to the bridge of a ship and housed 6 crew. It was connected to the passenger cabin by a spiral staircase. The luxurious cabins were divided into 5 standard compartments, each seating 10 passengers, a dining salon for 14, a special compartment for four and a deluxe bridal suite. 74 could be carried on day trips and 40 when sleeping quarters for all passengers was required. Chefs prepared gourmet meals while passengers lounged in deeply cushioned wicker chairs and enjoyed a grand view of the scenery from about 5,000 feet. The age of the Clippers ended shortly after WWII when land planes could operate at much higher speeds than the flying boats.

Orange Crush-Revell Pontiac Club de Mer Show Car - From 1956 GM Motorama, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair++

$165   

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 most common set is the 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. What most people have never seen is the other cars the Crush offered beyond the Highway Pioneers. Again, these were from Revell (Lodela) molds and this time 'Revell' is listed two short box sides in addition to Orange Crush. Note that this is a 1956 Buick box with a Lodela factory sticker at the top right that says 'Esta Caja Contiene Un Pontiac Club de Mer' or 'This box contains a Pontiac Club de Mer.' Inside is the classic Revell Club De Mer molded in glossy deep blue plastic. The kit has never been started and all parts and instructions are still in the factory sealed bag. I can see from the instructions that this is a Lodela (Revell of Mexico) kit. Once you had your bottle caps, they could be redeemed one of two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. 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! Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side 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, judging from the box side illustration. 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 indicated that the promotion went on for a significant amount of time. Oddly enough, this box does not mention Modelandia, although we know they were deeply involved in the Crush Highway Pioneers. This kit must be shipped insured.

Aurora Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina, 1/74, 374-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Ragwings Pfalz E-I - Bagged, 1/72, 081

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

$36   

Still factory sealed. Very limited production kit - one of about 100 ever made. Very high quality resin castings with metal details and full decals for two aircraft. I have received the following information from Jeff Stockham on this rare kit: 'Regarding the Ragwings Fokker D.VI you have for sale, I can provide some additional background info on this kit. The company was formed and owned by Marty Snow (dba MGS Enterprises) of Rochester, NY; Marty did the masters for the Pfalz E-1 and Bristol Scout D; I did the master for the Fokker D.VI (modifying some parts from Revell's Dr.I and D.VII and scratchbuilding some) and I did the artwork for all the backing cards, decals and instructions, as well as the small print ads that appeared in FineScale Modeler and other magazines. I was halfway though the master for a really accurate Albatros D.V/D.VA when other events interfered, other makers came out with the same items, momentum slowed, and Marty eventually closed up the business. The actual production of both the resin and metal copies was subcontracted to Ted Paris of Commanders Series Inc, Rochester NY; I think that Decal Master printed the decals. In all the years since, I have never seen one of these for sale. I know Marty marketed them directly to retail buyers via mail order ads in FSM; I don't know how many he actually sold, but it wasn't enough to make it worth the effort. These have to be among of the rarest short-run resin kits ever. I never did build one of these D.VI's up, but I do remember that it got a very positive review in one of the British modeling magazines (I think it was Windsock.)'

Precise Sparrow II Missile (CF-105 Arrow) Douglas Bendix

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$750   

This was the intended weapons system for the Canadian Arrow Interceptor program. Major problems prevented the Sparrow II from operational service and played a small roll in the demise of the Arrow. Other systems were more expensive or less effective. The AWG-9 was offered, but was too costly. The Falcon was offered, but was not adequate. Thus the beautiful aircraft without a weapon came to be canceled. This very rare display model was made by Precise as a promotional item for Douglas and Bendix (the two main contractors). The missile is 6.5 inches long as is the clear base. It comes in it's original shipping box with a two-sided information card on the missile. Condition is mint - it has only been taken out of the box twice. Base upright reads 'Douglas Bendix Sparrow II'. No touch ups/repairs or cracks. Insurance required on shipping.
