Aoshima Nitta Maru- NYK Pacific Ocean Liner - Converted to Aircraft Carrier Chuyo, 1/700, WLE096

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$34   

1/700 scale waterline model that is highly detailed and finely molded. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The Nitta Maru was the lead ship of a class of three Japanese ocean liners that were built for the Nippon Yusen K line. The Japanese government subsidized the class as they were designed to be converted into small aircraft carriers in the event of war. She was launched in May of 1938. Originally she was to upgrade the NYK line service to Europe, but with the advent of war there and tensions in the Pacific, she was restricted to Pacific Ocean service. After conversion she saw extensive service ferrying aircraft, etc. She was sunk later in the war after two attacks by the submarine USS Sailfish. After the second attack, Chuyo sank quickly with a large loss of life.

Cleveland Mile Fliers The New Norseman - 32 Inch Wingspan Cabin Fuselage Balsa Flying Model Aircraft, C-1

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$45   

Early World War II stick-and-tissue flying model aircraft. This was one of the six Cleveland "C" Tribute Series in the Mile Fliers Outdoor Contest Model series. This model, 'The New Norseman', is a tribute to the brave Norwegians & other Scandinavians. The other kits were a tribute to Czechoslovakia, Holland, Poland, Belgium and Austria. Features balsa printwood, pre-cut stringers and spars, covering tissue, thrust bearing, full size plans and more. Because they were wartime kits, often the rubber, cement and music wire were not present as these were critical war materials. The model has not been started. Inside, it is in amazing factory-new condition. The parts are still wrapped in the factory tissue, which has never been opened. The Cleveland Model and Supply Company played a pivotal role in the development of true scale models. In 1909 Bleriot's English Channel flight caused a surge in aviation and model aircraft around the globe. Several companies were ideally positioned to take advantage of the aviation craze. In the USA, Wading River Manufacturing Co. (1909), White Aeroplane (1911), Ideal Model Aeroplane (1911), Broadfield Model Aeroplanes (1919) were among these pioneers, offering everything from plans and parts to complete kits and ARF models. Lindbergh's 1927 crossing of the Atlantic Ocean caused an even bigger world-wide phenomenon called 'The Aviation Craze' that extended up to the start of World War II. Many companies such as Megow, Guillow's and others started right around the time of Lindbergh's flight. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - were generally not accurate scale representations. In 1929, a youngster named Ed Packard had a very advanced dream to produce incredibly accurate, true scale models that flew perfectly. This radical idea established the world's longest operating single-owner model airplane supply business, called Cleveland Model and Supply Company. To this day, Cleveland models are treasured as the most accurate flying scale models produced. The fact that Mr. Packard started and successfully grew this business during The Great Depression is a testament to his ideals and business skill. I highly suggest the excellent book called 'Aviations great Recruiter, Cleveland's Ed Packard' by H.L. (Herm) Schreiner. It is an excellent history of the man, his company and the times of the Golden Age of Model Aviation.

Revell German V-2 Missile - With Trailer and Launcher - History Makers Issue, 1/69, 0560

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$68   

Still factory sealed. 1994 re-release of the 1982 release- which itself is from the very popular 1960s original molds. Has many operational features including the V-2 missile with removable panel with full interior including fuel tanks, rocket engine and more, working launcher and transport trailer/erector and crew members. Please note that Revell lists this kit as 1/54 but I have noted it as 1/69 because the built missile measures 8" tall and the actual missile is 45.9 feet tall. That comes out to be 1/69.

Revell 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham, 1/25, 1244

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

$68   

Still factory sealed. This is the 1996 reissue of the original 'S' kit utilizing the original artwork. Molded in black, clear and excellent chrome. The Eldorado Brougham four door hardtop (suicide doors) started as a dream car in the GM Motorama and made it to the production floor as the luxury car with "the greatest number of important technological advances ever included in a custom built automobile". The styling was revolutionary at the time. The car sported a large and powerful V-8 engine and air suspension. The interior was simply stunning, with upholstery combinations such as cashmere, nylon and leather in any number of patterns and styles and plenty of chrome trim. In the rear seat, there was a retractable armrest which contained a storage compartment fitted with a vanity, tissue dispenser, cigarette case and a large mirror. All these items, including custom perfume, were designed just for this car. At a price tag of $13,000 few were made but they are valuable classics today.
