Revell Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat Japan Issue - (F4F4), 1/32, H299-500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Rare Revell of Japan hardbox issue is dated 1969. Most Revell Japan issues have special features and this one is no exception. It includes a full color pre-war 'High Vis' painting guide as well as decals for two different aircraft (the US issues only had them for the box art aircraft, not the Hi-Vis one). Features detailed cockpit, sliding canopy, pilot figure, rotating wheels and props and removable cowl to show the Pratt and Whitney R-1830 engine. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE that the box displays better than the 'very good+' grade but is graded as such because there are short pieces of masking tape on the long and short sides.

Ragwings Fokker D-VI - Bagged, 1/72, R002

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Very limited production kit - only a little over 100 were made. Very high quality resin castings with metal details and full decals for two aircraft. I have received the following information from Jeff Stockham on this rare kit: 'Regarding the Ragwings Fokker D.VI you have for sale, I can provide some additional background info on this kit. The company was formed and owned by Marty Snow (dba MGS Enterprises) of Rochester, NY; Marty did the masters for the Pfalz E-1 and Bristol Scout D; I did the master for the Fokker D.VI (modifying some parts from Revell's Dr.I and D.VII and scratchbuilding some) and I did the artwork for all the backing cards, decals and instructions, as well as the small print ads that appeared in FineScale Modeler and other magazines. I was halfway though the master for a really accurate Albatros D.V/D.VA when other events interfered, other makers came out with the same items, momentum slowed, and Marty eventually closed up the business. The actual production of both the resin and metal copies was subcontracted to Ted Paris of Commanders Series Inc, Rochester NY; I think that Decal Master printed the decals. In all the years since, I have never seen one of these for sale. I know Marty marketed them directly to retail buyers via mail order ads in FSM; I don't know how many he actually sold, but it wasn't enough to make it worth the effort. These have to be among of the rarest short-run resin kits ever. I never did build one of these D.VI's up, but I do remember that it got a very positive review in one of the British modeling magazines (I think it was Windsock.)' The kit has never been started.

Hasegawa Boeing B-47E Stratojet SAC With Eagles Talon Resin Update Set, 1/72, K7

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Build the ultimate 1/72 B-47! Includes rare Eagles Talon #ET602 Stratojet Update Kit designed by Hit-Kit. This is an extensive and high quality set that features a giant atomic bomb, 8 small bombs and two larger bombs, bomb holding trapeze gear, detailed bomb bay, full resin cockpit with floor, side panels, ejection seats, control columns and instrument panels, detailed gear wells, beautiful cast metal landing gear main struts and outriggers as well as strut braces and illustrated instructions. Complete and never used. The actual model is very nicely detailed with fine panel detail, open/closed bomb bay doors with internal iron bomb load, tail "stinger" and detailed landing gear with good well detail. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags. With decals and instructions. The B-47 was a very advanced aircraft at the time. The XB-47 first flew in 1947. The big jet's speed was equal to or greater than all current fighter aircraft, so it received radar-controlled twin 20mm cannons in the tail as the only guns. Through the use of mid-air refueling, the B-47 gave SAC it's first all-jet force for nuclear or regular bomb delivery. Although it was tricky to fly, Stratojets flew into the mid 1960s. A program to strengthen the wings for low-level attack was responsible for prolonging the service life.

Pyro 1949 Ford Ragtop Convertible, 1/32, C298-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Mid 1960 Pyro hardbox issue that is advertised as being able to convert into a slot car racer (motor and chassis not provided).

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. Features detailed (molded) chassis and suspension and complete interior. Molded in green plastic. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions.

Premier 1910 Ford Model 'T' - Old Time Autos Issue Bagged, 1/32, 100-39

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

Sold   

Factory sealed bag with very good header. This model dates from the early or mid 1950s. Due to the instant and wide-spread popularity of the Revell Highway Pioneers, many companies jumped on the car model bandwagon and Premier was one of them. I have seen this kit molded in many colors - ivory, deep red and black with perhaps more colors to be discovered.

Cleveland 1933 Vought Corsair V-64 Biplane, 1/16, SF-41

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Dated 1934. This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. This is the earlier simple cardboard box with the silver printing. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material, highest quality plans, all parts required for assembly and decals (if issued with the kit). The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. NOTE: there is light bug damage to some paperwork. 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 running single-owner (77 years) model airplane business- 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 'Aviation's 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.
