KP Skoda D.1 (D-1), 1/72, 29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

Very cleanly molded and well detailed model. Includes decals for one Czech Air Force and one Civil aircraft. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag including decals and instructions. The D-1 has an interesting history. The Skoda Works Aircraft Division was created to build the first Czech metal fuselage aircraft, then to move to an all metal aircraft. Due to a lack of experience in this field, the famous French firm of Emile Dewoitine was contacted. Dewoitine had been developing a promising fighter called the D-12C-1. Skoda wished to build this aircraft under license, but the future of the D-12C-1 for the French Air Force was uncertain. Eventually the D-12 was abandoned for the D-19C-1, which resulted in the D-21C-1, which saw series production. An agreement was finally reached with Skoda to produce the D-12 and the first aircraft was completed in 1928. A further 25 were built by 1929. The design was very rugged but outclassed by more agile designs. Due to the high durability, they lead a very long service life, being fully retired in 1939.

Saito Saito FA-325R5 (FA325) Five Cylinder Radial - - Gas Engine for RC Flying Model Aircraft

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Tested engine in excellent condition. The collector that I bought it from was very particular and he would run his engines on a test stand for ten minutes to ensure proper operation. From the looks of this engine and the very, very tiny amount of exhaust inside the exhaust manifold pipes, this seems very realistic. I do not have a way of testing this engine. Also, all of the mounting hardware is present and has never been used. The wiring harnesses are in as-new condition as well. The engine turns by hand perfectly smooth and has excellent compression, as you would expect. Includes the following Saito accessories: spanner (for tappets, still sealed), screwdriver (still sealed), four hex spanners (allen wrenches), spanner for muffler & intake manifold (still sealed), needle valve extension bar, F-1 Fuel Filter (still sealed), glow plugs, wiring harness set for glow plugs, (2) leather washers, (4) engine mount bolts and washers (never used), (4) blind nuts for mount bolts (never used), muffler ring (never used), (5) exhaust manifolds, offset wrench for prop nut (still sealed) and (4) engine mount spacers (never used). From the accessory list, the following two are missing: syringe for fuel priming and (.1) tappet gap gauge. Includes a photocopy of the 27 page Saito instruction manual. The original box contains the factory packing foam which cradles the engine for shipping. This engine must be shipped insured.

Superior Plastics Taj Mahal - Pearl of the East - With Display Stand, 1/375, 2100-400

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory sealed but the seal has splits. Hard-to-find kit from the mid or late 1960s. Includes a 10 by 10 inch cardboard display base with a printed 'brick' overlay, many parts, assembly instructions and a full history of the Taj Mahal. The plastic is a very unique color and the instructions state that painting is not necessary, although painting tips are given if you wish to detail the model further. Superior Plastics Inc. listed their address as 426 N. Oakley Boulevard, Chicago12 , Illinois. They called themselves 'Custom Molders and Extruders.' From the sounds of things, Superior was an injection molding and extruding job shop which decided to go into the business of making model kits - and they did, cutting molds for a significant line of educational style model kits. Science kits appeared as early as 1962, and possibly earlier. Superior often referred to the kit line as 'Superlon' on the box top and instructions. The first building kit, 'Statue of Liberty', has a copyright of 1963. This kit was designed to be lit from the inside and came with lamp accessories. The second kit was the Taj Mahal and the third 'The Lincoln Memorial,' which could also be illuminated from within. Other kits included 'Yankee Stadium', 'United Nations Building', 'The Deep Sea Lobster', 'The Giant American Bull Frog', 'Unit of Life - Animal Vegetable Cell' and 'Amoeba.' They are best known, however for the anatomy series - 'The Thinking Man Human Skull', 'The Thinking Matter Human Brain', '3-D Human Body', 'Modern Man Skeleton', 'Vital Organs', 'The Beating Heart', 'The Mighty Molar', 'The Visible Pumping Heart', The Five Senses series with 'The Seeing Eye', 'The Listening Ear', 'Anatomy of Taste', 'Anatomy of Smell', 'Anatomy of Touch' and the 'World of Sensation', which was all five senses in one giant kit. The company was quite innovative and even had a patent on action for the Visible Pumping Heart. Sometimes the same kit was issued without a display case and sometimes with under a different part number. Other kits are said to exist are 'Grasping Hand' and the Skull and Brain together. Superior eventually sold off the molds, but the exact date is not know. Early boxes do not have zip codes, but later boxes list 60612, so production at least went into the later 1960s. The science kit molds were sold to 'Educational Products Inc' (EPI) and most of them were reissued. MDK bought the 5 building molds and reissued them all along with the Marx White House before the ceased production. The Statue of Liberty used to be for sale in the on-sight gift shop and still may be. Lindberg later purchased the all the science molds from EPI and have reissued many of them.
