Has flexible treads, rotating turret and cupola, elevating main gun and machine gun, working wheels/sprockets, driver and four combat figures. The kit has never been started.

AMT Tandem Semi Truck Vans - Two 27 Foot Exterior Post Trailers, 1/25, T521

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG+

$62   

Still factory sealed and the seal has many splits. This is an early issue from the 1970s and not a recent reissue. The two highly detailed vans feature over 230 parts, vinyl air hose tubing, parts so you can attach the vans to any 1/25 scale semi truck, sliding loading doors, hollow rubber tires, CF decals and more.

Arii Vertol 107, 1/72, 1

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$29   

Rare Arii model from the 1960s. The box is complete and intact but has the obvious stains as shown. The kit inside is often attributed to Airfix and it may be; however, I am suspicious of this as it is a bit cruder in mold quality, so it may simply be a copy of the Airfix kit. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Lincoln Douglas DC-7 - BOAC, 1/150, 105

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$52   

Rare, very early issue with "ALL PLASTIC no cutting no sanding" on the box top. Nicely made small scale kit from the 1950s. Molded in gloss silver with a large clear display stand. Never started. Inventoried complete including decals/transfers and instructions. Lincoln was an injection molding firm located in Hong Kong. Model kits were not their primary business but an important sideline and they established an early presence. Major countries of distribution were Hong Kong, Great Britain, New Zealand and Australia. Through specialty hobby shops, they often found their way to the West Coast of the USA. As early as 1956 Lincoln reissued about 16 Hawk kits from the USA, often with 'Picture Gallery' artwork. Although not their primary business, they established quite a line of plastic before discontinuing production in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Many molds moved to Kader, also in Hong Kong, who reissued the line. Some molds eventually found their way to the USA either through ATP (who purchased the excess kit stock when Kader sold out) or IM.

Sign up for the Hotlist.

Very well detailed kit from the original Taimei molds. Taimei was the first to use the Aeroskin type process that was widely used by Renwal. Actually, the Renwal molds for the Voisin, Bleriot XI and Antoinette came from Taimei. The original internal frame structure and details of the aircraft is built from injection molded plastic. When complete, it is covered with a very strong fabric which is included. The result is a very realistic aircraft. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions.

Revell Sikorsky HH-3E Jolly Green Giant - Brazil Issue, 1/72, H144

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair-

$34   

1970s Kikoler Revell of Brazil issue features movable rotors, hinged cargo ramp, refueling probe and crew. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the box looks slightly better than the 'fair minus' rating. However, it is rated that low because are multiple tears on the side panels and a 2x1 inch section of the upper long side panel is missing.

Marusan Aerial Missile Transporter - Marusan Issue - Cessna YH-41 With Hawk Missiles - (ex Adams), 1/40, 158-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$95   

Very rare Marusan-SNAP issue that is most likely from the early 1960s. This was Cessna's only helicopter design and was once considered as a transport to quickly resupply remote Hawk SAM launchers. Very nicely detailed model features full cockpit and interior, pilot and co-pilot figures, opening cabin doors, missile loader figure and Hawk Missiles with cradles. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: left vertical fin is broken off of the left fuselage; it is present and fits back very neatly so it can be repaired. The rear rotor guard is broken in two but both halves are present and fit back together perfectly. This is the SNAP issue from the original Hawk molds. When Adams exited the model kit business, Athearn (of HO train fame) was actually the first to be interested in some of the molds. SNAP was the marketing arm of Athearn for these kits which also included Winnie the Whale and more.

Tamiya Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden-Kai George Motorized, 1/50, 2

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$39   

Very early Tamiya kit from 1963 with a high-gloss box top in 'excellent+' condition with the fantastic artwork that has made these kits so popular. This is a high quality kit for that time and features all very fine raised panel lines, working flaps, rudder and elevator and retractable landing gear. The kit is engineered to be motorized and includes all hardware to do so, but Tamiya did not include the motor with the model. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Orange Crush-Revell 1915 Ford Model T, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$69   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacturer. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

Inventoried with all parts, decals, colorful flag sheet, sails and instructions present. NOTE: the instructions have minor bug damage. The sails are only 'fair' with cracks and some damage.

Hawk De Havilland DH-4 - Solid Wood Aircraft Model, 1/48, 56

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$39   

Rare model from the 1930s for the advanced collector. Note the low kit number (36) in this series. Hawk was one of the few manufacturers making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48. However, the company was innovative as it quickly included injection molded accessories. This model features a 3D (three axis) cut fuselage, profile (2D) cut wings and tail feathers, fully formed wooden wheels, metal propeller and 2 machine guns, wooden stock as needed, clear material for the windscreen, full color insignia and high quality, full-size plans. Never started and complete.
