Key Imports Colorado & Southern C&S 2-8-0 Consolidation B-4E #71 HOn3 Brass Locomotive and Tender Samhongsa - Weathered, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


Beautiful brass locomotive and tender, hand-built in Japan by Samhongsa for Key Imports. This one-owner model has always been carefully stored in the original box. The original optional metal 'pipe' part that was supplied with the kit is present and has never been attached. The original re-tinted clear plastic protective sheets and all three factory red foam parts are present and in 'excellent' condition. Under 14x magnification, the wheels show that this locomotive has been very lightly run -perhaps 2 or 3 times. The factory paint and lettering is in excellent condition. Please this model has been 'moderately weathered' to professional standards. I see no modifications to the engine or tender and I believe them to be complete with no missing or broken parts; but please examine the photos for yourself! Ask me if you need something checked more closely. I have no narrow gauge track, so I am unable to test the locomotive, so it is sold "As Is." There is no paperwork present.

United Denver South Park & Pacific DSP&P Mason Bogie 2-6-6T HOn3 Narrow Gauge Brass Locomotive, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+


From 1966 and part of a rare, limited production run. Even rarer in investment-grade condition inside and out; please read carefully and examine the photos as you may know more about this engine that I do. Beautiful, like-new condition brass narrow gauge locomotive, hand-built in Japan by the famous United Scale Models. The original box is in amazing 'near mint+' condition. Inside, the model is still wrapped in the original plastic that is printed in blue with 'UNITED' and their logo. All of the internal packing material is present and perfect - the two pieces of 'sponge' material, the foam cutout and the original internal white cardboard spacer. This one-owner model has always been carefully stored in the original box. Under 14x magnification I cannot see but the slightest wear on the wheels, so I would grade it as 'never run' although it was probably test run at United before shipping. I can see no missing parts, but again, please check the photos and ask questions. There is nothing broken but one small link and rod has come off; this is easily repaired. I have no narrow gauge track, so I am unable to test the locomotive, so it is sold "As Is." There is no paperwork present. Must be shipped insured.

I see no broken parts and no modifications; it looks factory-new. I have no narrow gauge track, so I am unable to test the locomotive, so it is sold "As Is." There is no paperwork present.

Renwal 1966 Duesenberg Modern Classic Revival, 1/25, 103-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


The idea behind Renwal's Revival Series came from the Detroit design team of Virgil M. Exner Sr. (the famous Chrysler designer) and his son, Virgil Jr. The famous design team, somewhat displeased with modern automobiles, started thinking about what the old time classics would look like today - if made by Packard, Mercer, Duesenberg and Stutz. Virgil Sr. and Jr. thus designed four modern classics and they were published in a national magazine - Renwal then began kit production of these four. The kit features a complete V-12 engine, engine compartment detail, removable hood and a complete interior. It is molded in gloss deep tan, gloss light tan, chrome, clear & red-tinted clear to minimize painting and includes rubber whitewall tires. The kit has never been started. Two sets of parts are still in the factory sealed clear bags. The parts that were not sealed have been inventoried and NOTE: missing one exhaust manifold (only visible when the hood is opened). Otherwise inventoried complete with instructions.

After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.

Pavla Focke-Achgelis FA-330 Helicopter, 1/72, 72015

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++


Limited production model with injection molded parts and photoetched details. Unique German one-man early recon U-Boat/battlefield helicopter. Never started. Factory sealed bag with decals and instructions. The primary use of the FA-330 was by the Kreigsmarine, particularly U-Boats. Before radar, the U-boat visual search capacity was about 10 miles on an absolutely clear day, due to the fact the conning tower elevation was only about 15' above the water when surfaced. To compensate, the U-boat Arm came up with this helicopter idea to achieve additional height for extending the visual distance to the horizon. The FA-330 stayed in a water-tight canister on the deck casing, aft of the AA gun mount wintergarden and when surfaced the "chopper" would be pulled-out, unfolded, manned with a pilot/observer and deployed on a 100-meter cable. While towed at surface speed of the U-boat, the increased height extended the horizon distance 2-3 times, allowing the observer to actually see "over" the horizon. The tether line also had a pair of communication wires so the observer could communicate directly to the U-boat watch officer. On spotting a target, the 330 would be winched-in, folded-up and put back in the canister with the greatest of speed. (Thanks to Mike Hamrick for the additional history)
