Oldmodelkits.com has received exclusive license from French Lines/CGT to produce and sell the SS Normandie in 1/350 scale. This nine-year project is a 100% new kit. Seven of those years were spent accurately modeling the ship from scratch in TurboCAD. All this design work was done by a master modeler and engineer who helped pioneer industrial CAD and 3D printing at GM. This limited-run kit represents the Normandie from her 1935 maiden voyage to New York and has over 1,100 individual parts. The hull and larger parts are pressure-cast resin from de-aired molds. There are two large photoetched brass sheets (one for railings, ladders, details, etc. and one for the davits), three sheets of laser-cut, real wood printed decking (from Scale Decks), decals, flag sheet and a DVD with detailed, highly illustrated instructions including painting guide, step-by-step rigging instructions and research material.

Very nicely molded kit. Includes a realistic standing figure of the famous Amy Johnson. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Frog is considered the father of injection molded model kits. The Lines Brothers opened Frog in 1932, capitalizing on the fever caused by Lindberg's solo transatlantic flight. Almost overnight the western populations became 'Air-Minded', and anything aviation was in high demand. Frog created a quality line of stick and tissue rubber powered aircraft and gliders as well as innovative ready-to-fly rubber powered aircraft that required no assembly. The box even contained a built-in rubber motor winder and fuselage holder. Model airplane flight competitions were popular in Great Britain, and one category was 'Rise Off the Ground', or ROG. By changing this to 'Flies Right Off the Ground', the FROG name was born. In 1936 Frog created a line of injection molded plastic models, the first such kit line in the world (Hawk sold a line of injection molded aircraft models in 1934 but they were factory assembled and painted). Named 'Penguin' after the bird that does not fly, the kits were innovative beyond the means of production. At a time when models were simply built by wingspan, the Penguin line was a constant 1/72 scale. Furthermore, a large 1/72 Short S.30 Empire class flying boat contained a full interior and lights! A line of accessories such as AA guns, tractors, hanger, ambulance, sound locator, searchlights and lighting kits were quickly added to the line. WWII caused a pause in production. After the war the box color changed from silver to green, and Penguin kits were also marketed in the USA. Production ended in 1950. Frog quickly expanded and released the Red, Orange, Black, Green, Gold Token, Spin and Comet series as well as Trail Blazers and several others. It is noteworthy that while most manufactures in the 1940s/50 were making toy-like models, Frog attempted to make very realistic models. For example, 'detailing' kits with excessively large rivets was once very popular. Frog ignored this trend and continued to mold aircraft with fine panel lines and no rivets. As a result, Frog kits can be built into very realistic replicas. Production ended in the late 1970s, but Frog molds are still in use around the world.

Hobby M24 Chaffy Light Scouting Tank Motorized With 5 Actions, 1/31, Z51-350

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$285   

Very, very rare. As a matter of fact, John Burns never listed this manufacturer, and according to Worthpoint one has never appeared on Ebay or any on-line auction or sale. Clearly of Japanese original and possibly the second issue but the mold origins are unknown. The box says 1/35, but the instructions (correct and also marked "Hobby") say 1/31. This is a scale model, and has the typical detail of Japanese tank kits of the early/mid 1960s. It is very unique in that one motor performs five actions - it can go straight, turn right then back to the left after a short run, go in circles (I think), do a U Turn and the turret rotates right and left. This is done through a fascinating and complicated gear, cams and lever system. There are no less than 11 gears with many other pieces of metal hardware. The TKK Mabuchi 25 motor is included and in a 'very good' condition early TKK box. The motor is still wrapped in the printed plastic bag and the accessories are present. Inside, the kit is just like it left the factory. All the parts except the upper and lower hull and treads are still in factory sealed bags. The decals look 'excellent' and the instructions are 'near mint.' Amazingly, the treads are completely intact and fully flexible! 'Hobby' issued other tanks as well - the side of the box shows a Soviet tank labeled "III", a JGSDF Type 61 tank and a M41. No others are listed. Please email me if you have more information on this manufacturer. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

The TKK Mabuchi motor is included and a mint early TKK box. The motor is still wrapped in the printed plastic bag and the accessories are present. Also includes a completely metal gear box, switch, wiring, hardware and more. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags.

Shizukyo German 75mm Assault Gun III Motorized With Light Up Gun Barrel, 1/50, TS-202-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$185   

Very, very rare and a very nice investment. Shizukyo started in the 1960s but was out of business before the end of the decade. This kit is probably from about 1963/64 and is well molded and detailed for that time and features motorized operation on the rear drive wheels to move the treads and a large flashing red bulb at the end of the barrel that 'fires' the gun. Features TKK Mabuchi RE15 motor that is still in the original old-style TKK box, complete with printed plastic wrapper and sealed accessory bag, all metal gear box, wire and sealed bag with motorizing hardware, the red electric light bulb, glue and decals. The actual kit is molded in a black or very, very dark green plastic. Inside, the kit has never been touched. All the smaller parts are still in the factory sealed bags and the big one has a paper header. However, one of the two bags had a 2" tear, so I inventoried the bag - it is complete with all parts. The only parts that were not sealed are the upper and lower hull, upper and lower turret and gear box/gears/drive shaft. The instructions are in 'excellent' condition and the decals are still in the sealed bag and 'very good' with moderate yellowing being the only flaw. Amazingly, the treads are in 'near mint' condition and completely intact - they are still very flexible! NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

Amazingly, the treads are in perfect condition and still 100% flexible. They are held together by the factory rubber bands! The instructions are in 'near mint' condition and the decals are 'near mint' also. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

Very, very rare. From the early 1960s. Has the unique combination of motorized drive wheels and flexible treads and a firing gun.

It is in excellent condition with like new color and gloss, no price tags or tape and no marks from either, four solid corners, no tears and no fading.

Please note that Otaki did not furnish the motor, which is recommended to be the common TKK Mabuchi RE-14.

Billing Boats Bluenose II Racing Schooner - Plank on Frame Wood Ship, 1/100, 600

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$119   

"Still factory sealed. Scale model of this world-famous and beautiful schooner originally from 1929. 1:100 scale kit measures 16.93""H x 20.47""L x 3.35""W. From the Billing website - ""All of the 600 Series Model Boat Kits (item numbers 600-609) include an easier way of building the hull. The hull is assembled in halves, on a table. This allows for easier assembly and is quite useful in learning plank-on-frame or plank-on-bulkhead construction! Once each half is done you join the two for a completed hull. Make sure you work each half in opposite directions so that when joined they marry up evenly!"" The schooner Bluenose has a very special place in the history of navigation and yachting. Built to fish off the Newfoundland coast, the ship soon turned out to be such a fast sailer that she won all the great classical regattas along the USA's Eastern coast. She was built in Nova Scotia in 1929, and shipwrecked near Haiti in 1946. A true copy - Bluenose II - was launched in 1964"
