Bluejacket Victory Ship VC2-S-AP1 - 28 Inch Long Wood and Metal Ship, 1/192

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$215   

Museum quality craftsman kit. Features hardwood, kiln-dried, precarved hull, extensive high quality cast Britannia fittings and other hardwood and metal parts as required. Includes very detailed full size plans and also text instructions. The kit has never been started. The parts that were never factory sealed (hull, wood and metal stock) have been inventoried complete. All of the fittings are still in factory sealed bags in the factory box. Includes plans and instructions. The Victory Ships were designed to replace the Liberty ships of WWII. 531 were ultimately built. They were larger, more powerful, faster, longer ranged and made their appearance in 1944. Steaming at 15 to 17 knots allowed them to be much more effective at evading U-boats. They were so successful that they became the basis of the US Merchant Marine after the war.

Classic Warships USS Sims Class Destroyer - Hammann / O'Brien / Walke / Buck / Morris / Russell / Roe / Hughes / Anderson / Mustin / Wainwright, 1/192

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$369   

Very rare, very large scale museum-quality model with superb detail. Features excellent high-definition resin hull, superstructure, turrets and range finder, numerous precision cast metal fittings and a large and extensive photoetched brass detail set. Includes full, illustrated instructions. The kit has never been started. The smaller (like the turrets) resin parts, metal fittings and brass parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags; the larger resin pieces were never sealed and have been inventoried complete. Includes hull number decals and instructions. Please note, this kit is not for beginners; experience in building large resin ship models is highly recommended. These destroyers served early in WWII and thus had a high attrition rate; Sims was lost with the tanker Neosho in the Battle of the Coral Sea, Hammann was assisting the crippled Yorktown at Midway when I-168 torpedoed both her and Yorktown. O'Brien, Walke, Buck and Morris were casualties of war also. The rest of the class were expended in nuclear testing after the war or scrapped in 1947.

MPC Savoia-Marchetti SM-79 - (ex Airfix), 1/72, 1101-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$34   

The SM-79 was considered an excellent aircraft and one of the best land based torpedo bombers of the war. Designed and serving as an airliner from 1934 onward, 100 were supplied to the Nationalist Air Force for the Spanish Civil War where they served as day and night bombers. The aircraft performed well in the Med and against Malta, sinking many allied ships. This nicely detailed late 1960s/early 1970s model features moving rudder, elevator and ailerons, cockpit detail and torpedo loadout. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Decals are in rare 'near mint' condition which is unusual for these kits. This kit is from quality Airfix molds and is one of the MPC issues with standard & custom decals, standard propellers or clear 'in flight' prop discs and the unique clear modular display stand. Dates from the late 1960s/early 1970s. Note that this issue still has 'Craft Master' under the MPC logo. Before this, MPC was marketing Airfix kits under the Craftmaster name in the USA. This continued for several issues and was finally discontinued although MPC continued to distribute Airfix and their own models.

Revell British Canberra Bomber Whip-Fly, 1/81, H157-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$89   

Rare kit from 1961 that also includes the Master Modeler Collectors Stamp and Club application form. The fantastic artwork of an RAF Canberra flying over 'The Rock' was originally painted by Akimoto. The Whip-Fly issue is based on the 1950s B-57 "S" kit and comes with RAF decals, flight ballast, handle, 12 feet of control line, control ring, colorful streamers for the jet engines and a underside pod which is a in-flight whistle! Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The complete Whip-Fly series included are H151 F9F-8 Cougar, H152 F-84F, H153 F-89D Scorpion, H154 F8U-1 Crusader, H155 F-39 Airacobra, H156 F-101A Voodoo, Canberra, F-106 and Yak-25 Flashlight. The Whip-Fly series seemed like a good idea...at first. Revell quickly realized that spinning heavily-ballasted, sharp objects at dizzying speeds in or outside the home near groups of children was potentially unsafe. The series was quickly discontinued.

AMT Big Rig Set Budweiser Peterbilt Tractor and Fruenhauf Trailer - Peterbilt 352 Pacemaker Cabover Tractor and Budweiser Fruenhauf 40 Foot Trailer, 1/25, T551 T552

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$299   

Incredibly rare and even more so in factory sealed condition. This was a special set; AMT took factory-sealed tractor and trailer Bud kits, installed a special empty printed box that says "Big Rig Set" then sealed the entire thing again - making a double seal. The combined kit contains over 350 parts. The tractor is super detailed with over 250 parts and over 100 in chrome. Features full rolling chassis build up just like the actual vehicle, tilting sleeper cab, dual exhaust, fifth wheel assembly, hollow vinyl truck tires, and fully detailed cab with air ride driver's seat and sleeper compartment. The trailer has complete suspension and chassis detail, sliding suspension, opening doors and more. Both have colorful and authentic Budweiser decals. NOTE: must be shipped insured.

Pyro IJN Syokaku Aircraft Carrier - Syokaku - Table Top Navy, 1/1200, C387-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$34   

Small scale ship kit from the Table Top Navy series and very nicely molded for their time. Can be built full hull or waterline and features propeller and shaft detail, separately molded island and other deck details and more. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. Many of the Pyro kits came from Eagle (then Eaglewall) molds in England. Eaglewall went out of business around 1962 and Pyro acquired at least some of the molds. Pyro reissued some of these kits in the mid 1960s with AJ Rudisill artwork. Evidently the line was successful, as Pyro then cut some of their own molds and expanded the series significantly. The earlier issues have the full color artwork and a three digit part number. Later issues have a 'B' or 'C' in front of the three digit kit number; some have simplified box art that is a modification of the original Rudisill paintings by painting out most of the background. Pyro issued these kits into the late 1960 when Life-Like took over the molds. Some were reissued by Life-Like.

Sankyo Sankyo SR Single Servo Carry / OS Minitron Escapement / Sankyo SR 2P Servo or Speed Controller / Kato Model Aircraft 110 CC Clunk Acrobatic Fuel Tank (TWO) and Kato 240 CC Clunk Acrobatic Fuel Tank Antique R/C Parts - All NOS

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$45   

Most likely from the late 1950s or very early 1960s. Includes all six item in mint, NOS condition. Never used. The SR 'Singl Servo Carry' is still in the original factory clear bag and packing material. The OS Escapment is still in the factory clear bag and packing material. The other blue box is the original box and contains a Sankyo SR 2P large three wire servo - mint in the original clear plastic bag and factory packing material. The three 'Clunk Tanks' are all new in the box. Thanks to Joel Chesler, these are aircraft fuel tanks used in both R/C and Control Line models. They have a flexible tubing pick up which insures fuel delivery regardless of the inertial loads on the flying model. Joel competes in CL aerobatics where they are often used because of the high centrifugal loads under competition.

UPC German Half-Track Munitions Carrier - HO Scale, 1/87, 3028-29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$22   

Nice small scale model from Japanese molds of an unknown origina. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. UPC stood for Universal Powermaster Corporation which was based out of New York City, NY. UPC did not cut their own molds, but bought kits already molded from other manufacturers and re-boxed the kits in the USA. Scott Eidson, the famous artist best known for his artwork with Revell, also did UPC box art in the 1960s. All UPC production ended in the 1970s.

The aircraft was popular and saw use as personal transports and executive planes. Five passenger could be seated in deluxe accommodations. The military used 45 privately owned SRs during WWII. Today this aircraft is very valuable and sought after by collectors and restorers.
