Revell TWO Heinkel He-111 H-6 / Heinkel He-111Z / Ju-52, 1/72, H2016

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

SALE!! Includes all 4 kits in the boxes shown. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But on these kits he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: he built minor (and occasionally major) sub assemblies (cockpit tubs, wing halves, etc.) to 'professional' quality. He also almost always removed the display stands (if provided). Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price.

ITC Halibut Diving Motorized Submarine - (SSGN 587 Cam-A-Matic Electric Powered Regulus Sub), 1/175, 3660-998

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair-

Sold   

From 1960. This model is the zenith of the ITC Design and Engineering Team and maybe of all operational plastic model kits. It is not only rare but is considered the most complicated operating model ever produced. The large 24.75 inch submarine sails from the power of a large electric motor driving twin geared propellers. It changes headings, dives, surfaces and a Regulus II missile comes out of the hanger and launches...all automatically. The engineering on this kit is fantastic and a major break-through for that time. The model worked and did work well, but was certainly not a toy for inexperienced model builders. The high price ($9.98) and difficulties that youngsters had with assembly and operation made for a short production run. The fact the ITC left the model business for good shortly after releasing the kit contributed to the scarcity as well. Inside, the kit is in excellent condition. It has never been started. All of the small and medium sized metal parts and hardware are still in the factory sealed bag. The red plastic parts and metal control linkage rods are still in the factory sealed bag as well. The large metal parts and the white parts have been inventoried 100% complete. Includes decals and instructions in 'excellent++' condition. The blue display cardboard is all present and in 'excellent' condition with no stains and very light discoloration as the only flaw. The boxtop is only graded 'fair-'; it presents OK from a distance but up close you can spot significant wear, edge litho chips, missing sections at the lower right top and the same corner, a 3.5" strip of the top left long box side and a great deal of other miscellanious damage as well. Just as important is the fact that the top and lower box has a great deal of clear tape on them both holding them together. So let me be clear that the box is there not in collectible condition; that is why it is graded 'Fair-.' NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

Dyna-Model North American P-51 Mustang - Wood and Metal Model Aircraft, 1/48

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

In the 'Golden Age of Aviation Modeling' (1930s and '40s), most modelers built the flying 'stick and tissue' type kits with rubber, CO2 or gas power. But there were a small but measurable percent that built solid aircraft display models of great detail. This required great skill worthy of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited technology. Many manufacturer's kits consisted of blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits. A few, like Dyna-Model Products Company, attempted to provide true-scale static models with a high level of detail. Today Dyna-Models are legendary and sought after collectibles. When you first open the kit, you see a black and white cardstock display with all the needed jigs and templates for assembly. Underneath, the fuselage is rough carved to ~95% of final shape (not just profile cut) and all other parts are either profile (2D) or die cut. Includes color decals, full size high-quality plans and the crowning jewel, a box of finished metal castings for super detailing your aircraft. Never started and inventoried complete.

Monogram Speedee-Bilt Boeing PT-13 Kaydet Trainer, G5-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Rare kit from 1957 in exceptional overall condition. This is a highly prefabricated, rubber-powered, wooden scale flying model kit. It features beautiful, completely finished Monofoil upper and lower wings, die-cut fuselage sides and formers that are factory painted yellow, precarved wooden parts, fully finished wheels, die-cut clear windscreens, prop and pilot bust, fully formed wire landing gear, rubber motor, sandpaper, tissue, decals and excellent instructions. The kit has never been started. Before there were plastic models, there were wooden aircraft kits. These usually came in two types - solid and stick and tissue. The solid models were static and usually contained a few blocks of balsa and sometimes a detail part or two. These "Make Wood Look Like Plane" models required a very high level of skill in carving and finishing. The stick and tissue variety were slightly easier to build and provided the ultimate thrill - they could fly when complete with rubber power (and later with free-flight gas and eventually RC). They still required a great deal of skill, so manufacturers sought ways to make model building more accessible to everyone. One idea was pre-carving and/or prefabrication. This raised prices, naturally. Many manufacturers launched lines of 'easy' to build flying models but only Monogram succeeded in making an entire line at an affordable price that would actual fly. The original "Speedee-Bilt" kits were in one-piece two-color boxes. In the early 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top as this kit. Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut and pre painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings, carved wheels and numerous plastic details like engine cowl, pilot, missiles, prop and more. Assembly was by detailed full size plans.

First issue of this all time classic. Hardbox is dated 1961. Widely considered to be one of the best visible airplane action kits ever made. Features a full cut away model with interior detail.

Model Shipways Colonial Schooner Sultana of 1767 - Wooden Ship Model, 1/64, 2016

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Revell Chris Craft Flying Bridge Cruiser - Pre 'S' Issue, 1/56, H302-98

Vaccuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Rare first release from 1953 in a Pre-S box. The box is in investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition. This is quite possibly Revell's second ship model. It is very nicely detailed and molded in the beautiful and correct wood-grain swirl deep gloss brown plastic. Never started. The parts and all paperwork are still in the internal factory sealed bag; literally all the contents are factory sealed inside. The long-box USS Missouri was the first ship model that Revell cut their own molds for, and it was kit number H301-198. I believe this is their second native ship model since the number is H302. Predating both of these were some Revell marketed ships that were really Gowland and ex-Gowland molds from the small scale sailing ship series. Sometimes the earlier Gowland sailing kits had bottles included.

Revell Convair B-24 WARBIRD, 1/72, H203-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

1964 first issue hardbox with excellent color and gloss. Has many action features: landing gear retracts and extends, control surfaces move, guns elevate and turrets rotate, wheels and props spin, flaps extend/retract, 4 crew and has optional position side gunner's position (open or closed). Never started. The parts and all of the paperwork are still in the internal factory sealed bag. Literally everything inside is still sealed. NOTE: the box is displays much better than the 'very good' grade, but it is rated as such due to a light stain and some damage on the lower long side and also a closed slit in the box tray (the bottom box).
