Revell Jupiter 'C' with Working Gantry - Elevator - Explorer Satellite and Crew - 'S' Issue, 1/100, H1819-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

1958 first issue hardbox featuring some of my favorite 'S' box artwork. Not a reissue. Correct and original- molded in three colors to minimize painting. The box top displays much better than the 'good' rating. Color and gloss and excellent but there are two closed split corners, one tear on a short side (but no missing litho), tape marks on the long sides and the inside of the box top is spray-painted; they used it as tray for painting another kit. This kit is loaded with working features typical of kits at the time. The entire gantry tower folds back and moves on railroad base, the elevator moves to the four different work platforms and the Explorer Satellite can be removed from the Jupiter rocket. Includes crew of 7. Inside, the kit has never been started. Parts are molded in the correct red, medium gray and white. Carefully inventoried and 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Please NOTE that part 71 is broken as it usually is. However, all the parts are present and it is a straight-forward fix if you are building the kit.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Rare early Bandai issue of this highly detailed, large-scale kit of the famous winner of the 1908 New York to Paris Race. The kit is molded in white, black, wood brown, very dark gray, ivory, brass plated, clear and with real rubber tires. The kit features a highly detailed engine with real valve springs, full ignition harnesses, complete rolling chassis just like the real car, working steering with metal shafts, opening doors, removable hood, tape and belts for holding the spare tires and more. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. Originally, the Thomas Motor Company was building bicycles in the 1890s as so may other automakers did. Erwin Ross Thomas, the founder, was experimenting with high speed gasoline engines. From 1898 to 1900 they built commercial engines and gasoline powered tricycles. Then Thomas moved to motorcycles, creating the "Auto-Bi", which was the first practical motorcycle commercially built in the USA. By 1902 he was the largest manufacture of motorcycles. Very shortly after this, the first Thomas Car, the "Buffalo Junior" was produced and 100 sold the first year. The Thomas was originally an advanced car and well known for it's high speed. In 1906, E.R. Thomas entered his cars in the Vanderbilt Cup and Glidden Trophy. The Thomas completed the 2000 mile tour without any mechanical adjustments. That year saw further race victories. In 1907 Thomas had several models with a new four cylinder engine; the G70 from that year was known as the fastest production car in the world. At this time, Rolls-Royce made some public statements about the superiority of the 6 cylinder engine. This caused E.R. Thomas to challenge Rolls Royce to a race from NY to Chicago - Rolls Royce, however, backed out. But four European manufacturers took Thomas up on his challenge, and the Paris newspaper Le Matin sponsored the great event for 1908. This race laid a course from Buffalo, NY to San Francisco, then to Alaska down the Yukon across the Bering Strait on ice, then rerouted to Japan due the thaw, to Siberia and then across Europe to Paris. The Thomas entry was a stock Touring car with George Schuster as the driver. After 169 days and 21,000 miles, the Thomas was the winner. Today it is still considered one of the greatest automobile races ever.

JSC Goeben Battlecruiser, 1/250, 251

Cardstock Paper Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Very large scale model and highly detailed. The famous Goeben was the second of her the Moltke class, completed after Von der Tann and Moltke. Goeben was 3,600 tons heavier than Von der Tann by addition of a fifth main turret. The hull shape and protection were improved; given the soon-to-be-proven toughness of Von der Tann, this was probably not necessary. The Goeben and Breslau entered the Dardanelles and were transferred to Turkey but under German Command. They spent their useful lives in and around the Black Sea in a very, very active careers. The Goeben was officially transferred to Turkey after the war and still existed in 1926 but still heavily damaged. She was fixed and remained became the Turkish flagship until decommissioning in 1953. The Turks offered her to the Germans in the early 1970s, but they refused to buy her back and she was scrapped in 1973. This is historically disappointing, as she was the longest serving dreadnought-type ship in the world and the only surviving ship of the Imperial German Navy.
