Esoteric Parnall N.2A Panther - (N-2A) US Navy or RAF - Bagged, 1/72, NAF-34

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

Sold   

Still sealed. The historic Panther was one of the first British aircraft to be designed to operate from aircraft carrier. Designed to Admiralty specification A.1/N.2A, the Panther was originally known as N.2A and first flew in April of 1918. Panthers were unique with the high cockpit (for good visibility in landing on the carrier) and the folding back fuselage half for improved storage. A contract for 312 aircraft was cut to 150 when WWI ended. A dispute arose between Parnall and the Air Ministry and the later contract was cancelled; but the aircraft went into production with The British & Colonial Aeroplane Co. (later Bristol). Eventually some production models were built by Parnall as well. The aircraft was successful and served on the HMS Argus and Hermes. They remained in service till 1926. Two were purchased by the US Navy and 12 were reported purchased by the Japanese. Very high quality kit with detail better than many injection molded kits. Has full interior detail. Includes decals for two British aircraft and both American Panthers. Includes cast metal details and plenty of shaped strut material.

Revell Vostok - Russia's First Spacecraft, 1/24, H1844-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

1969 issue. Very large 1/24 scale. Well detailed kit of Major Yuri Gagarin's spacecraft. Features detachable crew compartment, ejecting seat and Cosmonaut figure. Molded in metallic silver and clear and includes display stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Revell did not issue decals with this kit. Gagarin's flight was the first of 6 successful Vostok launches from the secret space center at Baikonur. Gagarin made one orbit in 108 minutes, which was enough to make him the first man in space. Titov followed in Vostok 2 and made 17 orbits. Other launches featured 4 mile passes in orbit, and Vostok 6 featured the first Woman Astronaut, Valentina Tereshkova. It is interesting that Vostok did not have attitude control for correct placement when re-entering the earth's atmosphere. The sphere was designed with the weight off-center, so it would automatically swing into position during the heat of reentry.

Athearn Norfolk & Western 40 Foot Round Top Box Car - Metal HO Craftsman Kit - Bagged, 1/87, 1-321

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

Sold   

Still factory sealed. In the late 1940s/early 1950s there was a revolution in model railroading: high quality kits became available for the first time. Before this, there were few standard gauges and most railroads were scratch built to any gauge the collector desired. This kit is the Menzies reissue of the classic Athearn kit. These kits build very realistic models because parts that are metal on the real box car are metal in the kit; same for the wooden parts. All sides, doors and roof are fully decorated, leaving very little painting. Includes wooden floor, opening doors, metal underside and detail fittings such as AB brake set, brake wheel, etc. These make great stand alone models or high-quality rolling stock for your line.

Lindberg Monitor and Merrimac, 718

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

Sold   

Still factory sealed. These kits (from the box art) appear to be the much more accurate Pyro molds and not the original Lindberg kits. The two American Civil war ships that spelled the end of the wooden ship age. In March of 1862, the Merrimac put to sea to raise the Union Blockade off the St. James. There she sank the Cumberland and Congress. The Monitor, the Union's only ironclad and the first turret ship, was rushed to the scene. The epic battle between the two iron-clad ships ended in a draw, with the Merrimac suffering a little more damage than the Monitor. The Merrimac was blown up to avoid capture; the Monitor sank in a gale in 1862.
