Monogram B-24 Liberator Speedee-Bilt - Five Star Super Deluxe Kit, 1/60, H4-495

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$750   

Dated 1954. This is the finest H4 Liberator that I have seen. The box has like-new color and gloss, four solid corners and only light general wear. The inside is like new also. Classic early multi-media kit with a fantastic internal box presentation. Before injection molded plastic kits were common, Monogram issued the famous 'Speedee-Bilt' and 'Super Kits' which featured injection molded details and precarved wooden parts. Of these, the Speede-Bilt B-24 and B-17 were the finest. These kits are rare today due to their relatively high original price of $4.95. This example is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, glue, dope, decals, sand paper, plans and instruction book. The kit has never been started. Still has all internal packing as shown. Amazingly, the celluloid plastic parts range from no warping to very slight warping. This is very rare, as that type of plastic was unstable and warp easily over time. Instructions, decals and plans are 'near mint' also, as are the parts sheets. No wooden parts have been punched out. This kit must be shipped insured.

Aurora Aurora ATLANTIS Merchant Raider Factory Model, 1/456

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$1400   

In the 1950s and early 1960s the major model manufactures would create factory-built and painted display models. These were intended for hobby shops to help stimulate sales. These were disposable items that were produced in very low numbers, so they are very rare today. Here is one of the rarest of the rare: The 'Rattlesnake of the Ocean' Merchant Sea Raider Atlantis factory build up by Aurora. The unbuilt kit is among the most valuable and rare Aurora single kits, making the factory built display much more so. This one is in excellent original condition. The painting is 1950s professional quality as is the gluing. The glue has held up well and all parts of the ship are very solid. The ship is very clean. The original paint is almost flawless with some light scratches on the port side. The 'ATLANTIS' decals are perfect. The stack 'K' starboard decal is mint; the port one is missing 2mm of the white top on one leg of the 'K'. The factory cardboard wood-tone base is 100% intact with typical corner splits on the bends and edge wear. The removable covers display is mint with all 10 gun/hanger covers present. The kit is now 100% complete. It was missing 4 parts (propeller, 'Y' rear crane, rear flag and rudder) which I took from an original Aurora Atlantis. I will leave it to the new owner to add these parts to the kit. Overall an excellent and rare investment piece for the advanced Aurora collector. Shipping insurance required.

Alanger Tovarisch Training Ship (Ex-Gorch Fock), 1/185, 040008

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$45   

Large scale kit that is nicely detailed. Possibly from older Heller molds. Features a cleanly molded full hull with excellent deck detail, billowing vacuform sails and rigging diagrams. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. This ship has an amazing and long history. She was originally the Gorch Fock, which was built in 1933 at Blom und Voss shipyard as a training ship for the Kriegsmarine. She was given to the Soviets for war reparations in 1945. After being re-floated and undergoing 2 years of repairs, she served as the Soviet Navy training ship Tovarisch. Tovarisch began sailing in 1950 and won the International Sailing Regatta in 1974 and 76. She trained more than 17,000 cadets and was in over 40 motion pictures. In 2003, she was purchased back by German sponsors and returned to her home port in Germany, where she was given her original name back and became a museum ship at Stralsund.
