Sterling USL American Scout C-2 Cargo Ship - For R/C or Static Display, 1/96, B18-M

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$595   

Still factory sealed. Very highly detailed large kit measuring 50 inches long. For remote control or static display. I have a built-up of this model and it is remarkable. NOTE: since this kit is sealed, I cannot tell if it contains the fittings kit or not. Earlier Scouts only had the fittings sold separately - later issues included the fittings. Unfortunately, I cannot tell.

Post-Craft Challenger Power Ice Boat For Radio Control or Tether - A / B / C Size Engines (Iceboat)

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$225   

Very, very rare kit from the early to mid 1950s. Measures 21 inches long when assembled and is designed for R/C or tethered operation. Can reach actual (not scale) speeds of 130 to 140 miles per hour. As you can imagine, it is a very strong model to withstand the shock of running on the ice as such speeds. This is a very nice early kit with many prefabricated features for fast construction. Features pre-cut plywood bulkheads, pre-cut hardwood spars and skis, balsa planking, formed steel running gear and 'All necessary hardware including formed steel runners resulting in a sturdy, indestructible hull and gear assembly.' The kit has never been started. Although the box is heavily worn, it is complete. The kit inside has been inventoried complete with all parts and still includes the factory sealed hardware envelope, clear material for the canopy and all three sheets of plans with detailed instructions (in 'very good' condition). Post-Craft was a manufacturer listed as 'A Division of Ridgewood Hobbies Inc., 196 East Ridgewood Ave, Ridgewood, NJ.'

Sterling Golden Hind - 9.75 inch long Solid Wood Ship Kit with Cloth Sails and Metal Fittings, G5

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$36   

In the late 1970s/early 1980s Sterling issued these simplified wood kits for beginners. They included a completely carved hull with very little sanding needed to complete. Also included are full size plans, two sheets of printwood, fully shaped wooden parts, numerous cast metal fittings, pre-cut blocks, hardwood dowels, instructions, standing and running rigging line, rigging diagrams, printed cloth sails and a large, colorful decal sheet. I remember building some of these - it was an ideal project for someone who had never built a solid wooden kit but wanted the experience. The kit has never been started. The fittings bag was sealed but it split while I was inspecting it - I have sealed it in a ziplock. The other parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Revenue Cutter - 12 Inches Long, 1110

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$38   

The plans are dated 1938. This kit is part of Ideal's famous '12 Inch' series of ship models with the composition molded hull. This eliminated all the work of forming the hull from a block of wood. This hull is in 'near mint' condition with no warping and no damaged, just a few tiny edge chips at the top hull line. Also includes two sheets of printwood parts, bamboo strips, wooden dowels, full plans/instructions which include rigging details. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes the plans/instructions. The box is generally very nice but is missing the large flap on the left side. The parts are still wrapped in the plans exactly as they left the factory; the plans do have a little wear, mainly in the corners and are in 'very good' condition.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Barquentine - 12 Inch Long, 1107

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$38   

The plans are dated 1939. This kit is part of Ideal's famous '12 Inch' series of ship models with the composition molded hull. This eliminated all the work of forming the hull from a block of wood. This hull is in perfect condition with no warping or chips. Also includes two sheets of printwood parts, bamboo strips, full plans/instructions which include rigging diagrams. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes the plans/instructions. The box is very fragile and damaged, missing one inner flap (of four) but including both end flaps. The parts are still wrapped in the plans exactly as they left the factory; the plans have age wear and light damage to the corners and short tears on some long sides. Overall they are 'good' and certainly fine enough to use if you choose to build the model.
