Adams Thor Missile at White Sands with Launch Pad, 1/87, K162-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$275   

Rare kit dated 1958. Features a well detailed Thor missile, complete launching tower and ground crew of three. Molded in gloss white and medium gloss gray. Decals and instructions are in amazing 'excellent+' condition. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box has great color and gloss, four solid corners, no fading, stains or repairs. It would grade higher but it has general wear as shown.

Aurora P-51 Mustang Screwdriver Issue, 1/27, 377-350

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++

$245   

Original issue dated 1969 and in remarkable, investment-grade 'Near Mint++' condition. The box has only a tiny bit more wear than when it came off the assembly line. This kit was originally designed as a gas powered flying model. However, Aurora discontinued the gas powered line very shortly after introduction due to returns and liability issues. Since the mold investment was already made, Aurora marketed these kits as large scale static models and they became know as "Screwdriver Kits" to collectors. For example, the 1/32 scale B-25 was issued in Gas U-Control and then static - but the P-51 may have only been issued in static. Molded in dark blue, light blue and clear & with many metal parts. Never started. The metal parts are still factory sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag. All other parts have been inventoried 100% complete. Includes decals in amazing, perfect 'Mint' condition and instructions in 'excellent' condition with yellowing as the only significant flaw. Even includes the original factory screwdriver with the clear yellow handle.

Aurora Northrop P-61 Black Widow, 1/48, 392-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$179   

Still in the factory seal and in 'Excellent+' condition. The only flaws are corner creases at the left side as shown. Hardbox issue is dated 1960 - however, this issue lacks the 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo boarder and has a 198 price extension, so it likely from about 1963/64. Large 1/48 scale model features some of Jo Kotula's finest artwork - the P-61 patrols over a South Pacific island base at night, destroying an intruder (or defender?).

Revell Merchant Fleet Gift C3 Freighter Hawaiian Pilot / Standard Oil T-2 Tanker J.L. Hanna / Harbor Tug Long Beach, G332-495

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$495   

Rare 1956 Revell Gift set containing all three ships and even the unopened tube of colorful Revell "S" cement. This was the first and only issue of this specific gift set and features spectacular special box artwork. The tugboat is 1/108 scale and the tanker and cargo ship are both 1/400. Inside, the kit is 100% correct. The special color cardboard over lay is factory fresh. The tug and C-3 lower hulls are factory painted red (the T-2 was molded in red so it was not painted). Decals are included. The instruction sheets are excellent with the typical yellowing as the only flaw. The three kits have not been started. The tug and freighter still have the small parts in the factory sealed clear bags; the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete. The tanker has been inventoried 100% complete. All three kits include decals and instructions. The box has brilliant color and gloss, four solid corners and no repairs. There is no tape, tape marks, price tags or price tag marks. However, there is moderate and light general wear and 'dings' on the two lower corners as shown. Shipping insurance is required with this kit.

Monogram Phantom Mustang F-51D - See-Thru Working Model - (P-51), 1/32, PA67-700

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$275   

Rare first issue of this all-time classic and in good condition outside and dead mint condition inside. Hardbox is dated 1961. Although not perfect, this box is in well above-average 'good++' condition with great color and gloss, four solid corners, no stains, zero fading and no stains. There is no tape other than the factory sealing tape. The original price tag is still on the right short side panel. Flaws include edge and corner wear and scrapes at the upper right as shown. If you know these kits, you know they are usually in much worse condition. This model is still widely considered to be the best visible airplane action kits ever made. Features a full cut away model with interior detail. Buttons on the base activate two motors that make the prop spin, and the main gear and tail wheel retract and extend; two other levers on the base drop the wing bombs. Molded in the correct first edition shades of clear, red, black, silver and zinc chromate green. Inside, this kit is as it left the factory. All of the special presentation cardboard is in 'mint' condition and the two motors are still sealed. The parts were still wrapped in the original factory tissue and never even viewed until I did the inventory; I have carefully returned everything to the exact same position as it came int. It has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts present. Instructions and decals are correct for the first issue and feature the 'Horse' stand decal. The decals are in amazing 'near mint' condition with only the smallest amount of yellowing as the only flaw. The instructions are in 'near mint++' condition, again with very slight yellowing as the only flaw.

Aurora Curtiss Hawk P-6E - Factory 'Thin Tape' Sealed, 1/43, 116-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$115   

Amazingly rare factory sealed first issue from the early 1950s. This is the first time I have seen this kit factory sealed. Box color and gloss are as new and the box grades a very strong 'Excellent+' overall. It displays as "Near Mint++" but I have graded it lower because there is a small (1/2" x 1/8") litho pull on the lower long side and some very light wear. The kit features movable ailerons, elevators and rudder, 'good' cockpit for that time, pilot figure and rotating wheels and propeller.

Topping Grumman F9F-8T Cougar - Factory Desktop Model In The Original Topping Box, 9988T

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$325   

Incredibly rare, 1950s NOS Topping F9F-8T Two-Seat Trainer model untouched in the original factory box. Inside, all of the factory cardboard and tissue are still intact. The stand and aircraft were never displayed or used. The gloss and shine on both are fantastic. There are no cracks, no breaks and no repairs. Decals and factory paint is are 'excellent++' to 'near mint.' While never used, please note that these models never left the factory in 'flawless' condition. There were always minor paint flaws and minor molding flaws as they were mass-produced. This example has a perfectly clear canopy with no yellowing and the decal yellowing is minimal; although there is a tiny bit of flaking on the black wing walks as shown. Because the original Topping box adds significantly to the value, it will be carefully packed into another box for shipping. Shipping insurance is required.

She was launched in July of 1959 as the lead ship of the first new cruiser class since WWII. Originally designed as an all-missile cruiser, she was later fitted with two 5"/36 caliber guns amidships.

The Ship Model Shop USS Arleigh Burke DDG51 Guided Missile Destroyer - 22 Inches Long, 1/250

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$275   

Very rare, highly detailed and prefabricated model from Allen Baker's legendary Ship Model Shop. This was the last kit he issued, and there are two personally signed letters from Mr. Baker included with the kit. Very high quality kit features 90% factory finished hardwood hull, perfectly cut and crisp wood superstructure parts, a vast number of cast metal fittings, a large sheet of photoetched brass details, wood, plastic and metal stock as required, a beautiful set dry transfers designed by Mr. Baker and custom made by Chartpak. Paperwork includes instructions, plans, sales material, color photos and various photocopies of plans. Carefully inventoried against the included parts list and NOTE: missing (2) of (16) small bitts and the (4) flat Aegis Antenna Enclosures; very easily made by cutting them from sheet styrene. All original paperwork is included but please NOTE: Mr. Baker had difficulty in releasing this final kit. So the instructions are generic (from the FFG7 kits) and a set of assembled plans. He apologizes in the letter for the standard of documentation. I only recommend this model if you are comfortable building a ship from plans.

Trumpeter USS Ticonderoga CV-14 Aircraft Carrier With Pontos Detail Up Set - (World War II Configuration), 1/350, 05609

Topping Douglas F5D Skylancer - Factory Desktop Model In The Original Topping Box

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$365   

Incredibly rare, 1950s NOS Topping F5D Skylancer model untouched in the original factory box. The buyer will be the first one to ever remove it from the box. Inside, all of the factory cardboard and tissue are still intact. The stand and aircraft were never displayed or used - I believe they were never even removed from the box. While never used, please note that these models never left the factory in 'flawless' condition. There were always minor paint flaws and minor molding flaws as they were mass-produced. Furthermore, the canopy, white plastic and decals inevitably have some yellowing, although this example is minimal. If there is any yellowing or age marks (usually brown mildew on the plastic), you can very easily remove this with Novus #2 Fine Scratch Remover. I have found it perfect for both cleaing and bringing back Topping plastic and decals back to super condition. Because the original Topping box adds significantly to the value, it will be carefully packed into another box for shipping. Shipping insurance is required.
