Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Golden Hind Flagship of Sir Francis Drake - 18 Inch Long, 318

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$159   

Rare kit from 1950 that is in amazing condition. This is one of Ideal's rare top of the line ships, the 'flagships' of the line. Measures 18 inches LOA when assembled and features an 80%+ precarved solid wood hull, four large bages of numerous factory-sealed cast metal fittings (well over 100 pieces), realistic deck grate material, seven sheets of quality printwood, other completely precarved and shaped wooden parts, a large sheet of beautiful sail cloth, masts, yards and wood stock in many sizes, running and standing rigging material, full color flag sheet insignia and more. Includes excellent full size plans and instructions which look like they have never been opened. However, since I have seen the plans, I can tell you that they show numerous sectional and detail view of the ship and even a painting guide. There is a separate instruction sheet, which was unusual for Ideal. Inside, this kit is factory-new. The fittings are all sealed in the original clear factory bags, which are neatly stapled to the light blue Ideal 'parts card.' the sail cloth, masts & yards and printwood are all held together by the original factory rubber bands. The hardwood turned mast parts are still sealed in the factory wax paper bag. Even the original (wadded) factory packing paper is present. The box is the finest I have seen, but NOTE that the corners had split; I have correctly repaired them from the inside using cardstock and book binding glue.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Marion Sprague Three Masted Schooner 1899 - 29 Inches Long, 601

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$265   

Very rare, large-scale deluxe edition from the late 1940s/very early 1950s. This version is hardly ever seen. Measures 29 inches long and 16 inches high when built. Features a 90%+ cut factory wooden hull, four factory sealed bags of metal fittings (over 100 fittings total), a large sheet of beautiful sail cloth, numerous hardwood dowels and pre-cut square wood of many sizes, metal stock, two types of rigging thread,m colorful flag sheet and fantastic full size plans that have detailed assembly instructions and rigging diagrams. Inside, the kit is exactly as it left the factory. The fittings are all in clear bags stapled to the original Ideal 'blue' backing cardstock. Sail cloth, printwood and wood stock are all held together with the original factory rubber bands. Even the original factory packing tissue is present. The box is complete and very nice, but the corners are repaired from the inside correctly as they had split. The plans have never been unfolded but have some damage to one side from the way they were packed by Ideal. They are still completely usable. The three-masted Marion Sprague schooner was built in 1899. Being far more economical to operate than the large, two-masted schooner, they soon monopolized all coastal trade up and down the US seaboard after the civil war. Ideal was a famous producer of early model kits. In 1911 they released their first aircraft kit, which put them among the first USA model companies. Ideal was unique also in that they released large civil ships and ocean liners.

Jo-Han 1935 Mercedes Benz 500K Roadster Limousine Sindelfingen Body, 1/25, GC1135

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good+

$75   

Still factory sealed. On April 9, 1935, this magnificent custom built automobile was delivered to Rudolph Carracciola, the Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix team driver. Rudy, with an impressive win record of 23 wins and 23 second places, had chosen this vehicle for his own personal transportation. Powered by the supercharged 5 liter engine, the large and heavy vehicle was an excellent performer and one of the finest cars of the 1930s. Highly detailed kit with over 150 parts. Builds up a rolling chassis just like the real car. The model is molded in red, black, clear and a large tree of chrome-plated parts. Features steerable wheels, removable boot, highly detailed engine and full chassis, double spare tires, detailed interior, opening hood and chrome spoked wheels.

Monogram Phantom Huey UH-1B Chopper Motorized with Sound, 1/24, PA226

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$659   

SALE!! Rare. First issue dated 1969. Large and completely transparent with a 20 inch long fuselage and nearly 2 foot rotor diameter. Well detailed with 184 parts and structural members and full internal detail. Features complete cockpit, pilot and co-pilot figures, full cabin, opening cabin door, inner fuselage framing, detailed engine and more. In the display base with the batteries is an electric motor which turns the main and tail rotors while the sound unit makes "chop-chop" sound that varies correctly with main rotor speed. To minimize painting, the kit is molded in clear, zinc chromate green, black, chrome plate, gray, olive drab and flexible black/gray ammo belts. The clear fuselage halves have no breaks or cracks, they are mint. The kit has never been started. Inside, the original red cardboard presentation material is complete and in 'excellent+' condition. All parts have been inventoried 100% complete including motor, hardware, wire, decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the decals have bug damage to the backing paper and some transfers have damage also; I have included two sets of excellent reproduction decals: one on clear decal paper and the other on white decal paper. Detailed instructions are included for these aftermarket decals. The Phantom Huey box top and tray are thin, fragile and easily damaged. This one is no exception- it is 99+% complete, but on the box top I have correctly repaired two split corners and two closed tears (on the short sides) with cardstock and book binding glue. The box bottom has three closed split corners. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

NOTE: the box displays better than the 'good-' rating but is graded as such because there is clear tape at the center left and on the sides.

The box has factory-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs and no tags or tape, or marks from either. There is very light wear as the only flaw. Inside, it is molded in the correct gloss silver and clear and includes drop tanks, rockets, display stand and full landing gear (which can easily be represented as 'in flight' if you wish). Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.
