This is a factory-sealed case of 12 Hobby-XV-3 model kits from the 1950s. Hobby-Time shipped them to the address on the box, and I purchased them from the man at that address. The case has never been opened and is still securely sealed top and bottom with the factory tape. The box is in 'excellent' condition. The actual model kits (12 inside the case!) are the one and only issue of this amazing aircraft. This is a very nice kit for that time with fine raised panel lines, interior detail and molded in gloss silver and clear.

The parts that were never factory sealed (the largest trailer parts & chrome and clear) have been inventoried complete. With instructions and decals in amazing 'near mint+' condition.
Wood and Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Very rare, and even rarer with the important fittings kit. This was Robbe's flagship model and was around $800 with the optional ship's fittings kit which is included. This full-scale model is designed for radio control operation with two props and rudders and provides great maneuverability even in rough water. The beautiful and huge hull is one piece molded ABS plastic and all other parts are pre-fabricated (die-cut) of wood and plastic. Includes hull, mast, funnel and small parts, die-cut decks, superstructure and crane parts, die-cut main frames and deck beams, clear glazing, double rudder system, R/C fitting set with tillers and pushrods, 35mm diameter screws, rubber rubbing strip, rails, anchor winch parts, optional fittings set and more. This example is never touched. It has not been started and all the parts are still exactly as the factory shipped them. The ones that were sealed are still sealed and the few that were not have been inventoried complete. With all plans/instructions. Unless you specify otherwise, this kit will be shipped in the huge and sturdy original box with paper covering the identification label and photo. If you choose to have it boxed again, extra shipping will apply. Please note, this may not ship to other countries who have size limited on postage because the box is 52.3 x 18.2 x 14.2 inches. Must be shipped insured.
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc+
Probably from the late 1940s or early 1950s. Stick and tissue flying model kit to a constant 1/16 scale with very nice quality. Kit can use rubber, CO2 or small gas motors for power. Features covering material, quality balsa printwood and strip wood, blocks as needed and beautifully drawn full size plans. The model has not been started. Inventoried complete with all parts and plans. Made by California Model Company out of Long Beach, CA USA. From the box there was at least a Spad, SE-5, Fokker DVII, Niuport and a Sopwith Camel for rubber power as well as the 'Spacer A-B' & 'Spacer 1/2A' and the indoor Featherette. We know they also issued some ex-Suydam railroad kits as well. From Bill Baker Jr - "California Model Company originated in Long Beach, Calif in the late 1940's or early 1950's. My grandparents, William (Bill) Loyal Baker and his wife, Ruth (Tripp) Baker were the founders. The company started out as primarily balsa based model aircraft but later, in the late 50's or early 60's, branched into the model RR craft kits and Cub Scout craft kits. They even had a balsa speed boat kit powered by a model airplane gas engine adapted to fit. When they retired, around 1968 or 1969, they sold the business and the "shop" in North Long Beach they built to house their business. I have many fond memories as a young child "working" with them in the shop, assembling kits. I have a few unbuilt kits today!"

Wood and Metal Model Kit, Box Condition: Good++
Very, very rare. From the early 1930s. Notice that the motor is referred to simply as 5/8" bored engine. There is no record of a public sale of this kit since the mid 1990s and no public photo of one until now. It is safe to say that only a handful are left. Fred Megow once stated that they lost money on the big gas models (like this Cadet) and sold very few; they were done for status only. The box top and tray are in exceptional condition given the age of the model. The box top and litho are both 100% intact, although the corners are taped due to splits and the litho has stains as shown. The tray is better with no splits. This is an incredible kit for that time with a high degree of prefabrication- "Can Be Built In A Few Evenings!" at the box says and it is true. Features ready-carved, completed hollow wing leading edges from a single block of balsa, conical monocoque fuselage, universally acceptable motor mounting, special wing mounting that protects the model (the wing will fly off loose undamaged in case of a collision), realistic cabin, high aspect ratio, solid, factory cut tail, high quality printwood, spars, stripwood and sheet wood, balsa blocks as required, metal stock, finished rubber tires with wooden hubs, the original paper envelope including all hardware, embossed and outlined aluminum sheet including lower, top and nose cowls, beautiful fuselage-length 'CADET' insignia in black and silver, covering material, huge, detailed plans and even a four page, illustrated brochure by Maxwell B. Bassett (Pioneer Gas Model Builder and Designer) called 'Flying Gasoline Powered Models.' Even the original cardboard dividers and inserts are present. There is no assembly but NOTE: 20 wing ribs are cut out to 'professional' quality. All other parts are uncut. Carefully inventoried and NOTE: missing the prop blank and fluids. The factory rubber bands disintegrated. Otherwise includes all other items, insignia and paperwork.

Multimedia Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
Pocher made the finest automobile models ever created. The detail and working parts on these long out-of-production, big 1/8 scale kits is amazing. Recommended for experienced modelers only. This kit is a perfect reproduction of the original car that won 1st place at the 1907 Grand Prix de France with an average of 113.612 KPH with Felice Nazzaro as the pilot. The prototype of this car was used with the original drawings to create this model. It has 823 parts of plastic, brass, steel, leather, iron, rubber, copper, aluminum and other materials. Features include super detailed engine, opening hood, complete interior, all pilot controls, operating steering, working suspension, operating steel drive chains and more. The kit has never been started. Almost all the parts are still in the factory sealed bags; but several bags had torn open due to age. So I inventoried those bags and they are complete. I taped them shut for safe transport or put the parts in a new ziplock. Includes complete instructions and decals. Shipping insurance (and Express Mail for international customers) is required.

Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Fair++
The largest injection molded kit ever made of this famous car. From the very early 1960s; features good detail for that time and operates realistically with Cam-a-Matic action. Car moves forward with real motor sound, then begins one of several pre-set steering patterns via one of four cams, stops at selected intervals, then flashes the headlights on then reverses at selected intervals! Measures about 17 inches long when built. Molded in red, black, clear and with plated plastic. The kit has never been started. The motor with metal parts and plated parts are still in their factory sealed bags, as are half of the red parts, the brass plated parts and the black wheels/tires. NOTE: one red parts bag is open; the kit appears (I say appears because one red bag is still sealed) to be missing the starting crank and short steering column sleeve; both are easily made. Also missing decals. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts and instructions present. The yellow interior display cardboard is present and in 'good' condition. The box top displays much better than the 'fair++' grade but is graded as such because one short side is torn but complete and taped from the inside. The lower box (tray) is complete but split on many corners and repaired with clear tape. There is a small, high quality repair to the underside of the chassis where there was a 1 inch closed split on a fender mount.
