Air Lines Supermaine S6B Racer, 1/72, 4900

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very finely molded in silver. Features separately molded ailerons, elevators and rudder. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

Athearn 40' Steel Box Car Canadian National - HO Craftsman Kit with Trucks, 1/87, A111

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Very high quality wood and metal kit from the Golden Age of HO Craftsman kit. Builds a very accurate and highly detailed prototype. Of the early metal box car kits, these are my favorites, with their popularity witnessed by the various reissues through the years. Almost all the parts that are metal on the actual box car are metal on the model. This and the factory paint, lettering and decoration makes these kits difficult to beat for scale appearance. Features stamped steel body, car ends and roof that are factory painted, lettered and decorated, steel ladders, doors, door guides and brake platform, cast metal running boards, bolsters, coupler pockets and three piece brake detail, stamped metal undercarriage beam with fine cross bearers, corner steps, grab irons and more. Includes trucks. The factory paint is excellent, and I have wrapped it so it will not be damaged in shipment. Due to the high degree of factory finishing, the only painting required for this kit is the interior floor and underside. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions.
