O-lin North American F-86 Jet Fighter, 1/48, 505

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$55   

Very rare kit for the advanced collector. This is a very hard-to-fine original O-line kit in the small box and advertisement for O-line cement on the side. Produced in 1949 or just before. The box has excellent color but general wear as shown. The kit is molded in the correct off white with a red nose piece and clear canopy. It has never been started. NOTE: the kit is missing the stand base. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals, decal instructions and other factory paperwork present. The instructions are on the back of the box and are in VG condition. One drop tank fin has broken cleanly away but is present. O-Lin (Olin) was founded by Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen - hence the company name. Although a producer of flying models in the 1930s, O-line produced some of the earliest American injection molded kits in the late 1940s. In 1950 the partnership may have ended, because all branding was changed to Lindberg and Paul Lindberg. To learn more about the first American Plastic Kits, please see the article on this website. Thanks to Dusty Rhodes, here is some information on the real airplane from the box art of this kit: "F-86A-1-NA s/n 47-617: 1/18/1949 First flight. 1/1949: Used for cold weather tests in Alaska. 1949: USAF 3200th PTG.3/30/1949: Crashed near Whitehall, MT.

Maintrack Saunders-Roe SR.177 - (SR-177), 1/72, PX010

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

$68   

Highly detailed vac kit with better mold quality than most injection molded kits. Includes cast metal details and decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The SR.177 was a further development of the SR.53. The SR177 combined rocket with turbine power. The 177 had a jet engine of significantly more power than the 53, so it could cruise without use of the rocket motor. The interceptor was to be armed with two Firestreak missiles. Although British air policy changed, the work continued due to German interest in the project. However, the program was dropped when Germany went with the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter.

Precise McDonnell Douglas Spartan ABM

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$1275   

Very rare promotional model of the 'Safeguard' ABM Missile Spartan. The Sprint and Spartan pair made up the missiles of this Anti-Ballistic Missile system with Spartan handling the longer ranges. The system was made operational on October 1 1975 and Congress voted to shut it down less than 24 hours later on October 2 1975. Condition is exceptional. Missile is NM with a tiny chip out of one fin and very slight wear. The base is NM also. Missile measures 17 inches long. There are no touch ups/repair and no cracks. Decal is near mint also on base. Base says 'Spartan - McDonnell Douglas - McDonnell Douglas Astronautics Company'. Insurance required on shipping. NOTE: This model was issued with two bases. One had two pins to hold the missile. The other is the cradle pictured. This missile has the two pin holes - so it was either left over stock and put on the new base or found it's way to the newer base over the years.

Monogram Air Force Patrol - B-66 Skywarrior (A-3A) / C-47 Skytrain / SA-16B Albatross Gift Set, MGP7-349

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++

$850   

Very rare. Monogram did not issue many gift sets. To make matters more interesting, the ones they issued were very short lived. Many were simply sets of models in sleeves with no dedicated boxes. By 1960, the Monogram Gift sets were no more. This gift set, the Air Force patrol, is interesting because it's not just a sleeve; it has a dedicated box designed for this gift set. It is the one and only issue, dated 1957. The condition is investment grade; the box has no more wear than when it was removed from the shipping carton. The colors and gloss are as new with minor edge wear as the only flaw. Inside, the three kits are still individually factory sealed, including the tube of Monoglue. Also includes the original "Monogram Model Merry Christmas" box wrapper, also in fantastic condition - these seldom survived the opening of the kit. Overall, a hard-to-find kit in factory new condition.
