Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc


This is a factory-sealed case of 12 Hobby-XV-3 model kits from the 1950s. Hobby-Time shipped them to the address on the box, and I purchased them from the man at that address. The case has never been opened and is still securely sealed top and bottom with the factory tape. The box is in 'excellent' condition. The actual model kits (12 inside the case!) are the one and only issue of this amazing aircraft. This is a very nice kit for that time with fine raised panel lines, interior detail and molded in gloss silver and clear.

Athearn Rock Island F-7A and F-7B Freight Locomotives Genesis DCC Quick Plug Equipped - HO Scale, 1/87, G22084

Metal and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM


Superbly detailed Genesis issue powered A and B locomotives in excellent condition. Judging from the very slight wheel wear, these were run perhaps once or twice. There are no broken parts and each engine is 100% complete. I hesitate to call anything mint, so I will grade them both as 'near mint' condition. Not perfect, but close. Includes all three factory boxes (a box for each locomotive and the external sleeve for both those boxes), all the original factory plastic and dark gray foam packing and the following paperwork: (2) "FlyWheel Drive F-Unit" exploded diagrams and parts sheet and (2) "Athearn News" sign up sheets. I have no way to test these locomotives so they are sold as-is.
