AMT 1941 Plymouth Model P-12 Four Passenger Coupe, 1/25, T148

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc-

$48   

Still factory sealed. Features opening hood, detailed engine and compartment, full interior and underside detailing. Molded in white, chrome, clear and rubber tires.

Aurora Northrop P-61 Black Widow, 1/48, 392-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$179   

Still mint in the factory seal. Hardbox issue dated 1960 - however, this issue lacks the 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo boarder and has a 198 price extension, so it likely from 1961. Large 1/48 scale kit. This has to be some of Jo Kotula most fantastic artwork - the P-61 patrols over a South Pacific island base at night, destroying an intruder (or defender?).

Airfix DH Comet 4B - BEA, 1/144, SK500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$69   

1960s 'Third Logo' issue. Nice 1/144 scale kit of the world's first jet airliner. Includes clear windows, full landing gear, display stand, passenger boarding stairs and BEA decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The initial Comet Is were in operation long before the 707, which gave the British an incredible post-war lead in the expanding civil aviation market. Just as the Comet was flying high and orders were pouring in from around the world, Comets began to mysteriously fall out of the sky. Everything from lighting to terrorist bombs were blamed. For months the root cause went undiscovered. Then, in a landmark investigation that is considered the first modern post-crash autopsy, it was discovered that the stresses around a small ADF window on the top of the fuselage were causing metal fatigue failure when the fuselage was pressurized. To confirm this, a Comet I was placed in a water tank and subjected to pressurization stresses. After some time, a dramatic failure occurred. Then parts of a crashed Comet were pulled from underwater proving once and for all that this was the root cause.

Airfix RMS Queen Elizabeth Ocean Liner, 1/600, 06201-9

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$155   

The famous Queen Elizabeth was the largest liner in the world when launched in 1938. She saw extensive service during WWII as a troop transport. After the war, she and the original Queen Mary formed the backbone of Cunard Atlantic Service in unparalleled luxury. Some customers favored the Queen Elizabeth for her modern lines and more modern interior fittings. She was supposed to be on display in the USA on the opposite shore of the Queen Mary, but buyers never materialized. While serving as a 'College Ship' she burned in Hong Kong Harbor where she was scrapped, but only after appearing in a James Bomb Film as a MI-6 hide-out. Well done full-hull model with good details. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Airfix Hercules C-130 with Bloodhound and Tractor, 1/72, 881

Nice kit of the venerable Herc and missile. Interesting kit contains RAF decals and has a matching scale Bristol Bloodhound, launcher, transport truck and crew (with dog) included. C-130K kit is well detailed with movable control surfaces, opening cargo bay, full interior bay and cockpit detail, external fuel tanks, large display stand and rotating props. All C-130 parts are internally sealed and molded in that unique 'light mustard-green' plastic. The Bloodhound is molded in gray (possibly from a newer issue) and has been inventoried complete. Complete with decals and correct instructions that have both models on it. NOTE: this box is a reproduction box. It is very well done and complete, showing the top and all four sides. The box tray (bottom) is original and 'good.'

Aurora Martin B-26 Marauder, 1/46, 371-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$395   

Very rare first issue from the early 1950s. When Aurora moved to the West Hempstead plant, they planned a series of very large scale bombers. All kits released up to this time had been small. Aurora's instincts were correct, and the B-26, B-25 and B-29 were a big sales success. This box art was done by Jim Cox and was only used for about one year, making it very rare. The kit has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with the original tissue paper, all parts, large clear stand, instructions and decals.

Minicraft 1804 Trevithick The World's First Steam Locomotive, 1/38, 11102

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$65   

From ex-Entex molds. The world's first locomotive was the 1804 Trevithick. On February 13 of that year, Richard Trevithick's high pressure steam locomotive pulled five wagons carrying 10 tons of iron and 70 men on the Penydaren Tramroad from Methyr to Abercynon, Wales. The nine miles was covered in four hours and five minutes but much time was lost cutting down several trees and removing some large rocks. At times they reached the unheard of speed of five miles per hour! The performance won a 500 Pound wager for the train's owner, Mr. Samuel Homfrey and proved for once and for all that smooth steel wheels could obtain traction on a smooth iron rail. Until this day, conventional wisdom insisted that only geared wheels running on geared track would be able to pull any load up the slightest grade. The model is from 1996 but the molds pre-date that. Older but very nice kit that is well detail and molded in wood brown, medium gray and black. Includes display stand. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions.

Hasegawa F-4EJ Phantom II - With Decals for 13 Aircraft, 1/72, KA7

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$34   

Beautifully made kit dated 1990 and with 117 parts. Superbly molded and not from the 1970s F-4 molds. Very highly detailed and includes a huge decal sheet. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Airfix DH-88 Comet - Blister Pack, 1/72, 01013-9

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good+

$36   

Still factory sealed. From the 1970s. Includes markings for the Australia Air Race Comet from 1934

Aurora Boeing B-47 Stratojet, 1/180, 493-49

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$155   

From 1956. Very rare first issue with 'Famous Fighters' square 'Northern Lights' logo. Classic Jo Kotula artwork. This issue only lasted one year, as in 1957 the new oval logo box was used. The box is in excellent condition with all solid corners, no fading or stains, no price tags or marks . Somehow, this box escaped the factory thin tape, as there are not even any marks for that. Inside, the model is as new down to the original packing tissue. The parts are high gloss silver. The instructions are dated 1956 and correctly show the old style logo and square clear stand. The decals and stand are correct for this issue also. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts, decals, instructions and correct square clear 2-piece stand.

Hawk Republic F-84 Thunderjet - One-Piece Box Issue, 1/48, 701

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$145   

Rare early first issue Hawk kit in the flip-top box from 1949. (Please see the article about early USA plastic kit development on this site.) The kit is in fantastic collector condition inside and out. The kit is molded in the correct light gloss gray with the early style stand and correct instructions. Please note that Hawk did not issue decals with this early first issue. The instructions make it clear how to paint the markings, which are raised on the moldings. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Hawk was a manufacture of 1/48 constant scale solid wooden models back in the 1920s (well before plastic), but they jumped on the plastic band wagon very early. Most of the first issue 'flip box' plastic kits were 1/48, such as this kit.

Airfix Boeing 314 Pan Am Clipper - 'Dixie' or BOAC 'Berwick', 1/144, 04172-6

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$38   

Type four logo box, likely from the 1980s. An excellent kit for that time. Has decals for both aircraft. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. In the 1930s Pan Am was a household word in the USA for their romantic foreign routes and the glamorous 'China Clippers' that crossed the Pacific Ocean, stopping at such ports as Wake Island. Pan Am's attention soon turned to the Atlantic. Since non-stop service would be needed, a new aircraft was designed. The Boeing 314 was chosen. This huge flying boat started flying the Atlantic mail in 1939 with a trip over 26 hours long. Before the war, the 314 fleet flew the Pacific, Atlantic and other routes. The airliner was a palace compared to the cramped jets and limited service of today. The flight deck compared to the bridge of a ship and housed 6 crew. It was connected to the passenger cabin by a spiral staircase. The luxurious cabins were divided into 5 standard compartments, each seating 10 passengers, a dining salon for 14, a special compartment for four and a deluxe bridal suite. 74 could be carried on day trips and 40 when sleeping quarters for all passengers was required. Chefs prepared gourmet meals while passengers lounged in deeply cushioned wicker chairs and enjoyed a grand view of the scenery from about 5,000 feet. The age of the Clippers ended shortly after WWII when land planes could operate at much higher speeds than the flying boats.

It features good detail and swing wings, retractable landing gear, pilot and radar navigator and Air Force markings. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions.
