Aurora North American B-70 Valkyrie Bomber (XB-70A), 1/105, 370-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

First issue hardbox from 1962. This box has, in my opinion, some of the best Jack Leynnwood box art. Jack primarily did Revell artwork, but since he was freelance, he did others as well. At this point, the XB-70 was planned for production, so the kit is called the B-70 and the artwork shows a winter night-time quick turn around of a SAC B-70 while another Valkyrie roars overhead after takeoff. Very large kit with 6 detailed General Electric J93-3 engines, landing gear and clear canopy. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed parts bag with all paperwork sealed in the bag also.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Revell Boeing B-52 Giant Stratofortress - Pre 'S' Kit 'Short' Box 1st Issue, 1/175, H207-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

First release dated 1954 in the low profile box (1" high vs. 1.5" high for later issues). Includes correct first issue globe stand with three parts instead of four. The instructions also show the three piece stand. This kit even has the factory-corrected decal sheet (see below). The box has factory-new color and gloss, four solid corners and no tape, tape marks, price tags or tag marks. The only flaw is very light general wear and a crease on the left that is so light it does not show up, even in this large photo. Never started. All small parts are still in the factory krinkle bag, and the kit is complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This is such an early issue that it has the earliest decal sheet which has an error. There is suppose to be a triangle on each side of the fuselage near the cockpit. The original sheet has just one of these - Revell had to issue a second decal sheet with the kit with another triangle on it. That extra decal sheet is present in this kit.

ITC CV-65 USS Enterprise - Motorized and with Cam-A-Matic Action, 1/390, 3658-2-1198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Rare action kit from the early 1960s. The ship sails in the water with an electric motor driving all four propellers. You can program the steering via the Cam-A-Matic drive to steer any number of patterns. While underway, the aircraft elevators move up and down and the ship launches aircraft. The kit has never been started. Inside, the original display cardboard is present and three of four parts bags are still factory sealed. NOTE: One bag was opened and is complete except for (2) of (6) #93 rubber band holders for the batteries. This part is not seen when the kit is built as it is down in the hull. It is a simple rectangle with one round hole. Very easily made. Decals are 'excellent' and instructions are in 'very good' condition due to some light bug damage. The kit is advertised 'For the Advanced Hobbyist' on the box top and I would agree. There are a great many parts and no shortage of moving features and complications. ITC did not shy away from making advanced kit like this and the diving Halibut submarine (dives, surfaces, steers patterns and launches a Regulus II missile) but many kits were returned by frustrated parents and children who did not have the experience to build more complicated models. However, when built properly, they worked and they worked well.

Top Flite DC-3 Gold Edition R/C With Retracts - 82.5 Inch Wingspan - Eastern or C-47 Markings - With Du-Bro Wheels and Tires and Top Flite Scale Pneumatic Retractable Landing Gear, 1/14, TOPA0500

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Also includes Top Flite TOPQ8276 Pneumatic Retractable Landing Gear that is still factory sealed and Du-Bro 3.25" diameter #325R main gear tires and #150TW 1.5" tail wheel and tire. Both are still factory sealed. The kit itself is a very large RC 1/14 Sport Scale Airplane. The Golden Era of Aviation Eastern Air Lines replica is IMAA Legal with a fully-sheeted fuselage and wingspan of 82.5". The original airplane was designed for commercial passenger travel, and some still fly today. This is a great introduction into building and flying a scale twin-engined kit. Features excellent flying characteristics; because of the engine angle and modified aerodynamics, this kit flies extremely well, even on one engine. (Most models of the DC-3 will go inverted and crash) There is a lot of wood and precision-formed ABS tail cone, engine nacelles, wing fairings, and cockpit top. An interlocking fuselage frame builds flat on the plans and the large round fuselage requires very little carving or shaping. Can be built with split-flaps and the scale aerodynamic "Balance Tab" rudder which uses the air deflection to help turn the plane. Includes Eastern Air Lines and Optional Military C-47 decals. The kit has never been started and is factory new inside. All small parts are still factory sealed. All other parts are still in the factory rubber band bundles and have been inventoried complete including decals, great instructions and plans. NOTE: unless you specify otherwise, the kit will be shipped in the box shown.
