Monogram Grumman Gulfhawk (F3F) Gulf Oil - Blue Box Issue, 1/32, 6850

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

$110   

Third or fourth issue. Note the four digit part number, Mattel logo and "Blue Box" dated 1967. This airplane is a civil F3F that was flown for Gulf Oil by the famous stunt pilot Al Williams. The kit has several action features: When you pull the prop outward and rotate it CCW, the landing gear retracts. Pull it outward and rotate it CW, and the gear extends. Push the prop in, and it freewheels as normal. Kit features a movable control surfaces, highly detailed cockpit, full decals including striping, sliding canopy, bracing material and instructions for rigging, and is molded in clear, orange and gray. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The box shows much better than the 'very good-' rating, but is rated as such because there is clear tape along the bottom of the sides and box bottom tray.

Frog Lockheed Ventura PV-1 Bomber/Reconnaissance, 1/72, F240

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$450   

Very rare. Near the end, Frog had projected several future kits. In the case of the Ventura, the kit was never released but the molds were made. Around 40,000 boxes were made anticipating production. Most of the boxes were destroyed. A unknown number of decals sheets were produced. There are no instruction sheets reported. The mold was put in the machine and 100 test shots were run - the only Ventura run at Frog. The 100 test shots were not sold but some found their way into collectors hands. This example is in a 'very good+' box with four solid corners and light general wear. It contains the decals and all parts. It is molded in gloss dark blue and clear, which is correct for the test shots. The kit has never been started and is complete. Please note there are no instructions as none were ever made. Shipping insurance is required for this kit.

$145   

Very rare kit for the advanced collector.

Six kits were issued - the 1920 Monroe Special, 1922 Murphy Special, 1931 Miller Special, 1935 Gilmore Special, 1940 Maserati Racer and 1953 Fuel Injection Special. The kits were priced correctly and featured 'Super Detailed' parts (for the time). It is unknown why the line failed to sell - it may have been distribution. Best was certainly not a large player in the business. The kit features real rubber Firestone racing tires, decals and some interior detail. The kit has not been started. All parts are still in the original 'krinkle' bag. Complete with decals and instructions.
