Email for availability.

The Holy Grail of old Revell models. The box has great color and gloss and displays better than the 'very good' grade. I graded it such because there are two split corners and one seam neatly and correctly repaired from the inside. First and only issue dated 1959 of this large kit. The molds have been damaged which prevents a reissue. Highly detailed with many moving parts. Includes main space station with opening walls, airlocks, rotating top and bottom sections, rotating radar assembly and fully detailed interior. Interior includes sleeping quarters, living quarters, operations and laboratory areas, terrestrial and celestial observations rooms, conference and dining rooms and more. Also includes 4 other space ships that can be docked/un-docked and displayed with the space station - maintenance vehicle - space taxi - research vehicle and Space ship with airlock. Special large clear stand is included. Molded in the correct silver, teal green, black, orange and clear. Includes 'excellent++' decals with only very slight yellowing, 'excellent' instructions and the science fiction booklet on how to operate the station. This kit has never been started. It has been 100% inventoried complete with all parts, decals, operations handbook and instructions present. This kit must be shipped insured. NOTE: one silver part, #29 has a very small chip at the lower left (see photo).

The 95' U.S. Coast Guard Cutter 95304, a Coastal Patrol Boat was one of 36 boats built between 1953 and 1959.

Matchbox Supermarine Stranraer, 1/72, PK601

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$28   

Dated 1983. Very nicely done model of this 1930's flying boat. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Stranraer was one of several successful flying boats designed by RJ Mitchell for the RAF. Experience gained with the Southampton and Scapa flying boats was put to good use in design of the Stranraer which featured an all metal structure. Although replaced operationally with the Sunderland, examples of this aircraft were used till 1942 in WWII and many flew long after the war was over.

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.
