Aurora Sikorsky HH-3E Jolly Green Giant, 1/72, 505

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold   

Still factory sealed. 'Big A' logo issue dated 1972. In the late 1960s/early 1970s, Aurora realized that it needed to produce new and better kits if they were to stay in business. Several helicopters, aircraft and ships were released with markedly improved mold quality from the older kits. The HH-3 is one of those kits. The result is a very nice scale kit with well molded detail. Features full cockpit, pilot and co-pilot figures, stub wing fuel tanks, detailed rescue winch, inflight refueling probe, retractable landing gear and rotating main and tail rotors.

Revell 1914 Stutz Bearcat - Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H38-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

Sold   

1960 issue molded in yellow plastic. The model has not been started. All parts are still sealed in the factory internal bag and the instructions are included. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

Entex Antoinette 1908 Monoplane 'Early Birds' (Ex-Taimei), 1/72, 8520B

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare and highly detailed kit from original Taimei molds. Unique and accurate. The internal frame structure and details of the aircraft is built from injection molded plastic. When complete, it is covered with a very strong fabric which is included. The result is a very realistic aircraft. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, covering material and instructions. Fuji also released this kit from ex-Taimei molds, and since Entex lists the kits as being made in Japan, it is likely that Fuji molded the kits for Entex. Some of these molds found their way to Renwal, where they may have been the inspiration for the famous Aeroskin series.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold

This model is very nicely molded with very good detail featuring molded chassis underside detail with separately molded front and rear suspension, spoked wheels, optional soft-top and complete interior.
