Large profile-scale flying model designed to fly a full stunt pattern on 65 miles per hour with a .09 engine. This is a highly prefabricated kit designed for strong, easy construction. Features pre-shaped hollow balsa wings with airfoil, die cut balsa and plywood, all necessary metal hardware, fully finished wheels, full size plans with complete building instructions and full color decals. The kit has never been started. The small parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed (larger wood parts and sheets of wood) have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions.

Hawk Grumman Panther F9F - Flip Box 1st Issue, 1/48, 400

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$155   

Very early rare Hawk kit. Hawk was active in manufacturing wooden kits in the 1920s and wooden kits with some injection molded details in the late 1930s before all-injection molded kits came around. Two of Hawks early plastic kits were the F9F and F-90 in the flip top box. Oddly, the kits are more famous for the fact that Aurora purchased the F9F and F-90 models and back engineered them to create their first two plastic kits molds. Correctly molded in a beautiful medium blue with clear stand, stand arm, nose probe and canopy and olive drab pilot. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Revell DeHavilland Mosquito MK IV - Bagged, 1/32, 4746

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

$39   

Perfect builder. Bagged kit - no box. The box is shown for reference only. This collector stored this and all of his kits in bags because of limited storage space. He was very precise; the canopy is bagged separate to prevent scratching, the small parts are in a zip lock for protection and then put into a larger sealed bag with the bigger parts and instructions. Decals are excellent. 1992 issue. Features removable cowling to display Rolls Royce Merlin engine, full cockpit, 2 crew and rotating props and wheels. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions in 'as-new' condition.

Rare kit in fantastic 'Near Mint-' condition. The color and gloss is as new, all four corners are solid, there is no tape or tags and no marks from any older tape or tags.

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.

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.
