Maintrack Gloster E.1/44 - Single Engine Meteor Back-Up - Bagged, 1/72, PX-028

Vaccuformed Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Sale Pending
Email for

Still factory sealed. From 1994. Very high quality vac kit with moldings of higher quality than some injection molded kits. Features parts to build either prototype, main vac parts with all fine recessed panel lines, cockpit, cast metal details and full decals for two aircraft. During WWII, the British slated the Meteor to be the RAFs first operational fighter. However, in 1942 Rover was having significant problems producing the Whittle W2 jet engine. So the Air Ministry specified an alternative plan - a single engined jet fighter that could be used if there were insufficient engines for the twin-engined Meteor. From specification E.5/42, Gloster designed and manufactured two prototypes, either of which can be built with this kit. The aircraft turned out to be underpowered; luckily, the engine supply problem was solved when Rolls Royce traded engine production with Rover and the later took on tanks. Due to initially poor handling, the tail was raised to a near 'T Tail' and this feature was retained on the Meteor. The two prototypes remained as test beds, one of them flying until at least 1951. Both are reported as scrapped.

Precise McDonnell Douglas Spartan ABM

Other Materials,   Box Condition: Good+


Very rare promotional model of the 'Safeguard' ABM Missile Spartan. The Sprint and Spartan pair made up the missiles of this Anti-Ballistic Missile system with Spartan handling the longer ranges. The system was made operational on October 1 1975 and Congress voted to shut it down less than 24 hours later on October 2 1975. Condition is exceptional. Missile is NM with a tiny chip out of one fin and very slight wear. The base is NM also. Missile measures 17 inches long. There are no touch ups/repair and no cracks. Decal is near mint also on base. Base says 'Spartan - McDonnell Douglas - McDonnell Douglas Astronautics Company'. Insurance required on shipping. NOTE: This model was issued with two bases. One had two pins to hold the missile. The other is the cradle pictured. This missile has the two pin holes - so it was either left over stock and put on the new base or found it's way to the newer base over the years.

Monogram Air Force Patrol - B-66 Skywarrior (A-3A) / C-47 Skytrain / SA-16B Albatross Gift Set, MGP7-349

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++


Very rare. Monogram did not issue many gift sets. To make matters more interesting, the ones they issued were very short lived. Many were simply sets of models in sleeves with no dedicated boxes. By 1960, the Monogram Gift sets were no more. This gift set, the Air Force patrol, is interesting because it's not just a sleeve; it has a dedicated box designed for this gift set. It is the one and only issue, dated 1957. The condition is investment grade; the box has no more wear than when it was removed from the shipping carton. The colors and gloss are as new with minor edge wear as the only flaw. Inside, the three kits are still individually factory sealed, including the tube of Monoglue. Also includes the original "Monogram Model Merry Christmas" box wrapper, also in fantastic condition - these seldom survived the opening of the kit. Overall, a hard-to-find kit in factory new condition.
