Revell 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham, 1/25, 1244

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory sealed. This is the 1996 reissue of the original 'S' kit utilizing the original artwork. The Eldorado Brougham four door hardtop (suicide doors) started as a dream car in the GM Motorama and made it to the production floor as the luxury car with "the greatest number of important technological advances ever included in a custom built automobile". The styling was revolutionary at the time. The car sported a large and powerful V-8 engine and air suspension. The interior was simply stunning, with upholstery combinations such as cashmere, nylon and leather in any number of patterns and styles and plenty of chrome trim. In the rear seat, there was a retractable armrest which contained a storage compartment fitted with a vanity, tissue dispenser, cigarette case and a large mirror. All these items, including custom perfume, were designed just for this car. At a price tag of $13,000 few were made but they are valuable classics today.

Revell German Graf Zeppelin Aircraft Carrier, 1/720, 05000

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

From 1996. The only injection molded plastic kit of the 'Flugzeugtrager A' or 'Aircraft Carrier A". Very nicely molded and highly detailed model from newer Revell of Germany molds. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. This German WWII aircraft carrier has a fasinating history. She was laid down in 1936, and launched in 1938. Raeder pressed for proper fitting out and completion, but ran into continuous and powerful resistance from Goring, who did not like the idea of the Navy having a mobile air-arm. Goring's interference proved conclusive and the ship, which was 95% complete, never entered service. The air wing was to be navalized Bf-109 Fighters and Ju-87 Dive Bombers. Work stopped completely in 1943 as Hitler became frustrated with the Navy. On April 25, 1945, the Germans scuttled the nearly complete carrier at Stettin just before the Russians arrived. What happened next has been unclear for years. It was generally assumed that the ship struck a mine and sank after the Soviets raised her. With the opening of Russian records, this story can be completed. In 1946 the Soviets raised the ship and towed it to Leningrad. There, they hoped to rebuild it and use it for her intended purpose. This proved to be impossible at the time, so in 1947 it was towed to sea and used as an target. In 2006, the wreck was actually located.
