Micro West Ford SIAM (Self Initiated Anti-Aircraft Missile) or SUBADS (Submarine Air-Defense System) Factory Model, 1/10

Multimedia Model Kit

$475   

Very rare factory display model of the 1970s DARPA SIAM project, which was short for Self-Initiated Anti-Aircraft Missile. The idea was to develop a copmletely autonomous air-defense missile. One of the most obvious purposes was for use onboard submarines. The submarine can hear the aircraft or helicpoter as it approached since the sound propagates through the water. The submarine could then launch a SIAM buoy to the surface, where the missile would automatically detect and attack any incoming aircraft. It was also theorized that SIAM could be launched vertically from the submarine itself. SIAM was tested in the early 1980s and was generally successful. DARPA handed SIAM over to the Navy, where it was deactived due to funding. This factory model is complete with it's original stand. The wooden base has a metal disk showing a submarine launching a SIAM, which is shown executing it's 'dual homing' functions. The missile is just over 7 inches long. Condition is excellent. There base and metal badge are near mint. The missileis excellent, with all original paint and decals. There is some minor wear on some of the port gold decals.

Delta 2 S-55 X Savoia Marchetti - (S.55X), 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$79   

The first aircraft to fly across the Atlantic in formation! The S-55 was a unique aircraft with the passenger compartments in the floats and the cockpit in the wing; the two engines are mounted in tandem push/pull above the cockpit. The S-55 proved to be very reliable and airworthy, setting 14 world records for speed, altitude and distance with a payload. Three months before Lindbergh's solo Atlantic flight, and S-55 flew with stops from Italy to Rio and NY City. In 1933 Marshal Balbo led 25 S-55s to Chicago in about 48 hours. He then flew back without incident. This issue did not come with the color reference booklet. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Richard Kishady did the famous painting for this kit and originally included German kill markings on the nose of the P-39.
