Miniature Masterpieces The State Coach of England - Circa 1760, 1/48, K500-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint

$54   

This kit was found in the stock room of a long-closed hobby shop and is in factory-new condition. Rare early 1950s original issue. Molded in red. Like all Miniature Masterpieces kits, this one is very finely engraved and molded with excellent detail. The model includes detailed instructions (rare for the early 1950s) and a wonderful history of this State Coach which was built for King George III. Never started. The parts are still factory sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag and includes instructions. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lou Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although having the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. However, there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954, making the one-year original issues very rare.

Aurora F6F Hellcat, 1/49, 40-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$129   

1960 issue; please note the oval logo with 'Famous Fighters' in the border and the 'Northern Lights' in the center behind the Aurora name. Molded in a stunning dark gloss blue and clear. This issue has the clear two-piece triangle-base stand and also the 'Parents Magazine' seal on the box. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Box shows much better than the 'Very Good' grade, but is graded as such due to damage to .5 of an inch on the lower left side corner

Pocher Alfa Romeo Spider Touring Gran Sport 1932, 1/8, K73

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$1400   

This kit is still factory sealed in the clear cello wrap but the seal has splits. Pocher made the finest automobile models ever created. The detail and working parts on these long out-of-production, big 1/8 scale kits is amazing. This kit has 1954 parts of plastic, brass, steel, leather, iron, rubber, copper and many other material. Working features include operating steering, working suspension, lights that operate from the dashboard, doors that open and close with operating door latches and handles, starting handle that operates the crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, V-belts, Fan, dynamo, etc in the engine. The convertible top operates - and much, much, more more. Recommended for experienced models only. NOTE: This is the desirable early version with the most realistic wheel construction. Each wheel is built just like a real spoke wheel with individual spokes and well over 100 parts. Shipping insurance (and Express Mail for international customers) is required.

Revell BB-38 USS Pennsylvania, 1/426, H422-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$155   

1961 Sea Power hardbox release. Rare kit of the Arizona's sister ship. The Pennsylvania was in dry-dock during the December 7th Pearl Harbor attack and survived with minimal damage. She was rebuilt and saw significant action in the Pacific in WWII, steaming over 150,000 miles from 1941 to 1945. It is thought that she may have fired more ammunition than any ship in history. She never once reported 'Not Ready' for any operation or need. After being used as a nuclear test ship at Bikini, she was towed to Kwajalein and sunk. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals, flag sheet and instructions.

ITC Halibut SSGN 587 Cam-A-Matic Electric Powered Diving Motorized Submarine - (Regulus Sub), 1/175, 3660-998

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$1800   

From 1960. This model is the zenith of the ITC Design and Engineering Team, and maybe of all operational plastic model kits. It is not only rare but is considered the most complicated operating model ever produced. The large 24.75 inch submarine sails from the power of a large electric motor driving twin geared propellers. It changes headings, dives, surfaces, and a Regulus II missile comes out of the hanger and launches...all automatically. The engineering on this kit is fantastic and a major break-through for its time. The model worked, and did work well, but was certainly not a toy for inexperienced model builders. The high price ($9.98) and difficulties that youngsters had with assembly and operation made for a short production run. The fact the ITC left the model business for good shortly after releasing the kit contributed to the scarcity as well. This kit is unusual in that it never had the common 'Seen on TV Maverick' sticker on the box top. The box is not perfect, but is the best I have seen. It has factory-new color and gloss, no fading or stains, one price tag on a long side and two small pieces of clear tape on each long side. Two corners are solid, and the other two have been properly and expertly repaired from the inside. There is light general wear as shown. Inside, the kit is in exceptional, factory-new condition. It has never been started. All of the parts that were factory sealed are still in the factory sealed bags. The two hull halves and batter holder are still in place in their cardboard display. The blue display cardboard is 100% present and in near mint condition as well. The instructions are in superb near-mint condition as well, with none of the usual yellowing.

KVZ Tupolev Tu-134 Interflug Crusty, 1/100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair-

$145   

Rare kit of this Soviet Transport nicknamed 'Crusty' by NATO. The Tu-134 is a design similar to the DC-9 and has seen widespread and successful service. It is perhaps most famous (or infamous) for the death of Mozambican president in 1986. The Tu-134 was a gift from the Soviets. When returning from the meeting, the aircraft crashed into mountains inside South Africa. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. KVZ was a Eastern German manufacture of kits during the Cold War. They made a fascinating range of civil and military subjects. If it were not for their efforts, there would be many 'Iron Curtain' subjects (especially civil) that we would never have injection molded kits of.
