ESCI Fiat G-91 Gina Pan - Frecce Tricolori, 1/48, SC-4028

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$36   

Larger scale (1/48) Gina. Kit features cockpit detail, optional position speed brakes and canopy, detailed gear wells, smoke tank and blocked gun ports. Includes large and colorful decal sheet for the Italian Air Force Acrobatic Team 313 Gruppo G-91R-1B (modified). The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. In 1961, the US Army evaluated four 'Ginas' for possible use in the close support/forward air control role. Despite much anticipatory rejoicing by Army aviators, this interesting project was abandoned when most fixed wing types were transferred to the USAF.

Hawk Nieuport 17 - Flip-Top Box Issue, 1/48, 706

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$39   

First issue from the early 1950s in the one-piece box. Molded in high gloss yellow and black. The model has not been started. Complete with instructions and all parts. This kit is from early in this first issue, and the first kits were not issued with decals. In the 1920s through the 1940s Hawk made constant scale 1/48 aircraft kits from wood. In 1946 they added plastic injection molded kits to the line and were possibly the first injection molded kit manufacturer in the USA. When Hawk made an early jump to all-plastic kits they kept the 1/48 scale and created these new one-piece boxes with two color artwork.

La Belle D&RG Double Deck Stock Car HOn3 Narrow Gauge - Craftsman Model, 1/87, HOn3-35

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$34   

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 equipment. The kit features die cut hardwood parts (no balsa) such as pre-cut and scribed sides all cut to the correct size, car ends done in the same fashion, excellent underside and cast metal details, building instructions and plans and decals/transfers. I have seen these models built and they look identical to the real prototypes. The kit has not been started and is complete with two packets of small parts still factory sealed, and all other parts inventoried complete with transfers and instructions.

Life-Like 1934 Ford Three Window Coupe - (ex-Pyro), 1/32, C308-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$26   

1970s early Life-Like issue from 1960s Pyro molds - note it still has the Pyro kit number. Features well detailed underside chassis with separately molded front axle and suspension, full interior, wire wheels and more. Molded in deep blue and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box. Pyro advertised these as ideal for slot car conversion.
