Revell Lockheed Electra American Airlines - 'S' Issue, 1/115, H255-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$239   

1957 'S' issue with famous box art. Box is solid with four perfect corners, no rips or tears, no price tags or tape (beyond the factory sealing tape) but has general wear as shown. Features optional position cabin doors, rotating props, optional position landing gear, large colorful decal sheet and famous Revell 'Globe' clear swivel-base stand. Never started. The kit has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions. In the 1960s these molds were modified to make the P-3C Orion, making a reissue of this kit impossible. Please see the article about the mold conversion on this on this website.

Aurora Ryan X-13 Vertijet with Trailer / Launcher, 1/48, 376-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$250   

Rare 1957 issue. Box has heavy wear as shown and closed holes on the side. Aurora really pulled out the stops on this kit, and the tooling was very expensive. Large scale kit features a fully operational mobile operations trailer. The aircraft is molded in silver and clear and the trailer/launcher in bright yellow. The kit has never been started. The airplane parts are still factory sealed. The yellow parts were never factory sealed and have been inventoried complete. Includes decals, instructions and even the original tissue paper. NOTE: there is light bug damage to the instructions and decals. On the decals, the damage is to the backing paper only. The actual transfers have no damage.

Revell Air Power CBS Gift Set F-100C F-101A F-102 F-89D B-57B 'S' Issue, G240-495

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$749   

1956 first and only issue. This rare kit contains all five aircraft models. The box is in 'good' condition with very nice color and gloss, three solid corners (one a closed split) and significant litho damage to the right lower section as shown. The four box sides grade better at 'very good.' The tray (lower box) is 'good++' and all internal packing material is present as shown. It is very interesting that there is no damage from the ribbon that Revell wrapped these kits in. Almost all issues have that, but this one does not. Inside, the kit has the two factory dividers. All kits contain the famous Revell clear 'Globe' stand. The kits have never been started. Three of them are still factory sealed in the factory bags with the decals and instructions. The B-57 and F-102 bags was opened, but they have not been started and are inventoried 100% complete and correct with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: there is a molding flaw on the rudder of the B-57. The rudder is complete, but it looks like a rough ring in the plastic. Shipping insurance is required on this kit.

Lindberg Messerschmitt Me-163 Comet Komet, 1/72, 70583

Renwal Nike Ajax MIM-3 Missile Store Display, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

$475   

For the advanced collector and investor. Very rare and in exceptional, all original condition. This is a Adams-factory built display built for hobby shop promotional use. The intention was simple- if hobby shops would purchase and display these dioramas, potential buyers would see the model build and immediately purchase the kit. This probably worked well; but the hitch was that these displays were expensive, so few hobby shops could afford them back in the 1950s. And of the ones made, there was heavy attrition. Parts broke, and when the new kits came out next year, they were thrown away to make room for more. Which makes the 'excellent' condition of this one even more exceptional. The actual model is very neatly built and painted, is missing no parts and has had no repairs. The paint is 'excellent+' and the decals are very good with the typical yellowing and wear as shown . The 3-D cardboard display is 'excellent.' There are no rips, tears, repair, tape or missing material. The only damage is a light crease near the words 'nike man' at the top center, a light crease at the top left, and a slight stain under the '81.' A superb 'no apologies' piece. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured. NOTE: It will be packed as well as possible in a double box, but be aware that some small parts or men may come loose during shipping and may have to repaired on your end.

Cleveland Douglas DC-3 / C-47 - For R/C or Free Flight, SF-165

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$695   

Giant 1/16 scale kit with a 72 inch wingspan. Ideal kit for electric power and conversion to RC. This model is in the original plain but sturdy cardboard box with 'Cleveland' stamped in ink on it and the name of the kit and kit #. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models and is in exceptional condition. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material, highest quality plans, all parts required for assembly and decals (if issued with the kit). The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The Cleveland Model and Supply Company played a pivotal role in the development of true scale models. In 1909 Bleriot's English Channel flight caused a surge in aviation and model aircraft around the globe. Several companies were ideally positioned to take advantage of the aviation craze. In the USA, Wading River Manufacturing Co. (1909), White Aeroplane (1911), Ideal Model Aeroplane (1911), Broadfield Model Aeroplanes (1919) were among these pioneers, offering everything from plans and parts to complete kits and ARF models. Lindbergh's 1927 crossing of the Atlantic Ocean caused an even bigger world-wide phenomenon called 'The Aviation Craze' that extended up to the start of World War II. Many companies such as Megow, Guillow's and others started right around the time of Lindbergh's flight. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - were generally not accurate scale representations. In 1929, a youngster named Ed Packard had a very advanced dream to produce incredibly accurate, true scale models that flew perfectly. This radical idea established the world's longest operating single-owner model airplane supply business, called Cleveland Model and Supply Company. To this day, Cleveland models are treasured as the most accurate flying scale models produced. The fact that Mr. Packard started and successfully grew this business during The Great Depression is a testament to his ideals and business skill. I highly suggest the excellent book called 'Aviations great Recruiter, Cleveland's Ed Packard' by H.L. (Herm) Schreiner. It is an excellent history of the man, his company and the times of the Golden Age of Model Aviation.
