OldModelKits SS Normandie Ocean Liner 1935, 1/350

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$950   

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. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

Revell A3D Skywarrior (A-3) - 'S' Issue, 1/84, H241-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-

$145   

First issue with great "S" artwork. Dated 1956. The box is in investment-grade condition with perfect color and gloss. The only thing keeping it from being mint is a very small dish in on the left side edge and very slight, isolated edge wear. Features folding wings and tail, optional position landing gear and speed brakes, escape hatch, three crew figures and refueling probe. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$69   

Just when I think all the issues have surfaced for an Aurora kit, another one shows up! This is a 120-69 (same number as the first issue) 'Famous Fighters' oval logo with the '69' price circle and the Parents' Magazine seal. That makes this the second issue - it would have been put out in early 1957, with the very first re-imaging to the new logo. It also shows that the Parents' seal was used as early as 1957 on some kits. The box artist on this issue is Jim Cox, the first model box artist for Aurora. (Please read the article about Mr. Cox on this website) This kit is part of a very successful WWI aircraft line in 1/48 scale that Aurora introduced in '56. The line sold so well that kits were added to it into the 1960s. Molded in the glossy olive drab green and black. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

La Belle D&RG Alamosa Business Car HOn3 Narrow Gauge - Craftsman Model, 1/87, HOn3-24

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$36   

Please read the article on this website about older HO train kits and the modeling revolution they caused in the late 1930s/1940s. During the golden era of realistic train models, La Belle Woodworking Company created perhaps the very finest scale kits of early American passenger equipment. The kit features die cut hardwood parts (no balsa) such as pre-cut and scribed sides with all windows factory cut, car ends done in the same fashion, carved clerestory roof, tinted clear clerestory window material, working end diaphragms, excellent underside and cast metal details, building instructions and plans. I have seen these models built and they look identical to the real prototypes.

The Buccaneer was the world's first purpose designed low level 'below the radar' bomber. Low level strike aircraft have a shorter airframe life limit due to the stresses of low level flying, so the Buccaneer was designed to be very strong and even had many sub-assemblies milled from solid metal. Kit features opening unique rotating bomb bay, folding wings and working arresting hook.

Guillows Sopwith Camel - 28 inch Wingspan Flying Model, 801

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$46   

Big-scale kit can be built for static display or flown .049 to .15 U-Control, gas free flight or rubber power. Features quality die-cut balsa parts and stripwood, scale wheels and flexible landing gear, movable ailerons, rudder and elevator, plastic cowl and cockpit deck, scale prop, two machine guns, pilot figure, very large full color decals, covering material and more. Includes full size detailed plans. The model has not been started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag; all large parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete. Includes decals and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

$18   

Bagged kit.

Planes have some tape on the back holding the overhead fuselage view in; it is done so well you can't tell unless you turn the plans over. Bill Wonacott drew the excellent plans. Little is known about Falcon Model Airplane Company. But thanks to Dusty Rhodes, we know that they were around as early as 1932 and actively advertising in Popular Aviation with a good sized add. Headquartered at 9610 Division Street, Portland, Oregon, they had a line of flying model kits and eventually solids. The bigger ships in the flying line appear to be quite deluxe, featuring dummy engines, aluminum spun cowlings and for power "The Prime Mover," a new gearless rubber power system that claims to double the flight endurance. Models in 1932 included the Monocoupe 10, Lockheed Orion (both $2.25) and a smaller line of 9" wingspan kits at 50 cents each, featuring the P-6E Hawk, Akron Fighter (Sparrowhawk), A-8 Attack, Gee Bee Racer, Lockheed Vega, Spad, SE-5, Hawker Fury, Curtiss Helldiver, Boeing P-12C, Ben Howard Racer, Lockheed Sirius, Fokker D-VII and Albatross D-III. Falcon eventually moved to Long Beach, CA.
