Amtech Focke-Wulf Ta-183 Huckebein, 1/48, 484601

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$55   

Nicely detailed. Contains parts and markings for four versions and two engine options. Includes recessed panel lines, optional drop tank and X4 wire-guided air-to-air missiles. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The Ta-183 was the winner of the Luftwaffe's emergency fighter competition of 1945 and was to enter full scale production. The aircraft never entered production, but the Russians and the Americans found the plans. From them, the Russians eventually build some aircraft and modified them till it was the Mig-15 while the Americans relied more on Messerschmidt plans for the basis of the F-86 Sabre Jet.

Revell HMS Campbeltown, 1/240, 2502

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$49   

Advent issue. Large scale and highly detailed kit of the historic four-pipe destroyer. On March 8, 1942, the Campbeltown sailed up the Loire River. Her mission was to destroy the Normandie Drydock, a possible haven for the Tirpitz which was holed up on Norway at this time. The Campbeltown was disguised as a German warship and the bow was packed with 8500 lbs of high explosive depth charges. Under a RAF diversion, Campbeltown fought her way up the river and rammed the dock doors at full speed. Charges at the stern sank the back of the ship and she was wedged in the dock. During a German inspection 8 hours later, the charges went off, scattering parts of the ship up to one mile away. The dock was rendered useless to the Tirpitz, who now had to stay in Norway. Never started. NOTE: missing rudder. Inventoried with all other parts, decals, flag sheet and instructions.

Comet North American P-51D Mustang - 22 inch Wingspan Gas or Rubber Powered Wooden Aircraft Kit, 1624-250

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

$42   

Still factory sealed. Purchased new on April 18, 1973. Still factory sealed but the seal has drawn the box top concave as shown. Large scale issue for rubber or gas free flight, or easily converted to RC using today's tiny and light servos and receivers. Box art is by Locher, who did a great deal of the Monogram box artwork also. Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction with all die cut parts, 'Tube-O-Matic' fuselage construction and 'Rugged Super X Simplified Non-Warping Wing' construction, colorful insignia, detailed full size plans, building instructions, wheels, hardware, tissue and propeller. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Williams Brothers Douglas World Cruiser, 1/72, 72-424

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$22   

The only kit of the first aircraft to fly around the world. In 1924 four World Cruisers set out on a 27,553 mile flight that lasted 175 days. The epic flight was an adventure to say the least, and one aircraft (Boston) was lost, only to be replaced by the factory prototype, which was quickly renamed Boston II. Includes decals for all five aircraft. Well molded. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Sterling Ju-87 Stuka Drops Bombs in Flight - 20 inch Wingspan for Free Flight / Control Line / R/C, A6-198

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$79   

Purchased new on March 31, 1966 at Hobbyville in Cleveland, OH. Very nicely produced stick-and-tissue model that drops the centerline bomb in flight. Can be flown with rubber, electric or gas control line or converted to RC with modern lightweight systems. Features high quality die-cut balsa sheet parts, stripwood and spars, fully formed wire landing gear struts, finished wheels, other wood and metal stock as required, light plastic engine cowl, exhaust manifolds, bomb, spinner and wheel pant, beautiful clear vacuformed one-piece canopy (still mint not yellowed), rubber motor, plastic prop, a big set of full color decals, coving tissue and excellent full size plans with detailed instructions. Never started and complete. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they had the action features and included everything needed to complete the model.

Hasegawa Boeing B-47E Stratojet SAC, 1/72, K7

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$68   

Still factory sealed. Kit is very nicely molded with fine raised panel detail, cockpit, open/closed bomb bay doors with internal iron bomb load, tail "stinger" and detailed gear well and landing gear. The B-47 was a very advanced aircraft at the time. The XB-47 first flew in 1947. The big jet's speed was equal to or greater than all current fighter aircraft, so it received radar-controlled twin 20mm cannons in the tail as the only guns. Through the use mid-air refueling, the B-47 gave SAC it's first all-jet force for nuclear or regular bomb delivery. Although it was tricky to fly, Stratojets flew into the mid 1960s. A program to strengthen the wings for low-level attack was responsible for prolonging the service life.

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$125   

Very rare. Very highly prefabricated and detailed. Likely from the 1940s.

The scale is given as 1/2" and the finished steamer is 8 inches long. The kits were very advanced for the time and shared many of the pre-fabrication methods of Hudson Miniatures. Features plastic injection molded spoke wheels, completely precarved boiler, a vast number of other completely carved and cut large and small wooden parts, numerous completely carved smaller wooden parts, numerous cast metal fittings, working metal bell, hoses, metal stock as needed, sandpaper, complete instructions, a parts layout, photos of the actual steam and the model being built and complete and full size plans. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag. The parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete including instructions/plans. The kits in this line include Amoskeag Steamer, Hose Reel, Hose Wagon, Chemical Engine and many others. In most cases they are the only kits in existence of these historic vehicles. Bill Low did design at least one 'non-fire truck' kit in his Will-O-Line - a Conestoga Wagon, advertised as being 1/24 scale, kit #B14 for $2.85 list as "This is another Museum Piece by Bill Low." After seeing these fire truck kits, I do not doubt that.
