Orange Crush-Revell 1907 Renault Limousine, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$79   

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.

Wilhelmshaven TS Bremen (V) Ocean Liner 1958 - (ex-Pasteur 1938), 1/250, 1000

Cardstock Paper Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$29   

"Large scale, very highly detailed cardstock model. Beautifully color printed on 6 exceptionally large sheets of quality cardstock. No painting required - just build! Includes full instructions in German. Never started; nothing has been cut out and all the sheets are in excellent condition. 100% complete. NOTE: due to the very large sheets, this kit will be shipped rolled up in a tube unless you request otherwise. From Wikipedia: After a very active career as the French ocean liner Pasteur, she was acquired by North German Lloyd and renamed TS Bremen in 1957, she was extensively rebuilt at Bremer Vulkan in Bremen for approximately 65 millions DM. Her size was increased to 32,336 GRT and the load-carrying capacity with 8,700 tdw. She received new boilers and four turbines with a maximum output of 60,000 HP rendering a maximum speed of 26 knots. Economical output of 53,500 HP gave a very useful speed of 23 knots. Three 1,375 KVA generators had an output of 6,600 kilowatt. One very noticeable change was the new drop-shaped funnel, which was much more in proportion with the ship than the original tall funnel. To enhance comfort, two 4,50 m Stabilizers were fitted. In June 1959, she underwent new sea trials. The ship was very popular. She was sold January of 1972. After another refit, which changed her tonnage to 23,801 tons, the TSS Regina became the flagship of Chandris Cruises and inaugurated her Mediterranean service, calling at Limassol for the first time on May 19 and taking passengers from Cyprus to Beirut, Haifa, Heraklion, Piraeus, Katakolon, Corfu, Dubrovnik and Venice. Regina continued calling at Limassol regularly every two weeks and her cruises became extremely popular.She cruised the world until 1974, when she was laid up in Piraeus because of rising fuel costs and the loss of emigration charters to Australia. She later sank while being towed to the breakers.

Sterling L-19 Bird Dog - 17 inch Wingspan CL/Rubber Powered Kit that Drops Leaflets in Flight, A12-98

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$42   

Purchased new on November 26, 1965 at Bill's Model Shop in Cleveland, Ohio. 17 inch wingspan kit for rubber free flight or control line. Features an innovative system for dropping leaflets in flight. Includes quality die-cut balsa sheet parts, strip wood and spars, light plastic full engine cowl and other parts, die-cut clear windscreen, fully formed wire landing gear struts, finished main and tail wheels, rubber motor and plastic prop, covering tissue, a big sheet of full color decal and full size plans with excellent instructions. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits compared to other manufacturers.

Airfix RMS Mauretania Ocean Liner, 1/600, X481-800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$75   

Rare Airfix Japan issue. The Mauretania and her sister Lusitania were considered the finest and most beautiful ships of the day, both inside and out. Launched in 1907, she quickly won the Blue Riband from the 'Kaiser Wilhelm II' for the fastest Atlantic crossing. For more than 22 years she was the Queen of the Atlantic liners. She saw extensive service in WWI as an armed cruiser, transport and hospital ship. In 1922 she was converted from coal to oil and set another record in 1931 when she crossed the Atlantic 4 times in one month. Sadly, she was scrapped in 1935 as the Queen Mary neared completion. Never started. Factory sealed internal bag with decals and instructions.

SMP 1959 Chevrolet Impala 4 Door Sedan Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$35   

Rare four door sedan. Original dealer promotional model; not a reissue. It has a metal chassis and is all original on the underside except the friction motor has been removed. I listed this as SMP, but it may have been AMT. The strongpoint of this model is the body, body parts, chassis and tires. These bodies were all celluloid plastic; this one does have some warping and is better than 90% of the survivors. The tires show no wear, the whitewalls are almost perfect and the bumpers are great except some slight chrome loss on the front one. The clear is missing. The fine trim and white cove have been correctly painted to 'excellent' quality by the previous owner. The box is not original. NOTE: I would only recommend this promo for restoration if you can find a donor windshield.

Pyro Ford 1936 Roadster, 1/32, C288-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$39   

Late 1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. This model is nicely detailed and the box states that it can be converted to a 'road racing' or slot car. Features detailed molded chassis underside with separately molded front and rear suspension, complete interior, top boot or top in the 'up' position and rear trunk mounted spare tire. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Hawk Supermarine Swift K-4 - One Piece Box Issue, 1/72, 607

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$59   

Rare one-piece 'flip top' box issue from the late 1940s/early 1950s. Very cleanly molded kit that builds very nicely. Molded in the correct gloss silver with green-tinted clear canopy. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The Swift was a very early jet fighter to replace the Supermarine Attacker. A very capable aircraft, the Swift suffered numerous accidents early on. As a result, less than 200 were ever built and it did not see combat. It did hold a world speed record for a short time, only to have a Douglas Skyray take the record a few hours later. The problems were ironed out, but by then the Hawker Hunter was proving very capable and there was no need for the Swift and it's RAF service life was short. The most successful version was the PR variant.

Revell Su-27 Flanker, 1/72, 4348
