Fujimi CV-2 USS Lexington Aircraft Carrier - Pre-Coral Sea Configuration, 1/700, WLA116-800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very finely molded and highly detailed for this scale. This model includes the 8" gun turrets, which were removed before the Battle of the Coral Sea. The kit has not been started. NOTE: missing aircraft and aircraft decals. Inventoried with all other parts and instructions present. Originally designed and laid down as a battle cruiser, the Lexington was converted to the 2nd aircraft carrier in the US Navy. Her battlecruiser speed was legendary and the four twin 8 inch turrets made her 'The Largest Heavy Cruiser Afloat'. After absorbing significant battle damage in the Coral Sea in 1942, the Lady Lex had to be abandoned due to internal avgas explosions after the battle. The fully enclosed hanger deck, which was unique at the time, may have contributed to the fume build up.

Otaki Kawasaki Ki-48 Type 99 'Lily' - With Action Features, 1/90

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

It is molded in dark green, black and clear and all parts and decals are still sealed in the factory bag. Complete with instructions, which are also excellent.

O-Lin Knight Twister Sport Plane, 1/48, 304

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

A rare kit for the advanced collector. This is a very hard-to-fine original O-line kit in the small one-piece box and advertisement for O-line cement on the top. Produced in 1949 or just before. Molded in high-gloss dark blue with a display stand. The model has not been started. Inside, it is as new. The small parts are still sealed in the factory 'krinkle' bag. The parts that were never sealed have been inventoried 100% complete including instructions. The instructions are on the back and O-Lin did not issue decals with this kit. 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. The Knight Twister origins began in 1928 with a teacher named Vernon Payne. In an attempt to make his aircraft repair and aeronautics classes more interesting, the class designed a minimum-size sport aircraft. Construction soon began, and even Popular Aviation ran a series of articles on it. The aircraft was first flown in the fall of 1932 and was a complete success. The design is still considered exceptional and still built by sport enthusiast.
