Heller TWO AMX 13 Bi-Tube / TWO AMX 30 Bi-Tube Anti Aircraft Tanks., 1/72, 192

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

SALE!! Includes all 4 kits in the boxes shown. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But on these kits he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: he built minor sub assemblies to 'professional' quality. Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price.

Revell Boeing SST Supersonic 2 Kits (2707), 1/200, H262-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Rare and even more so in this condition. First issue from 1967 with Boeing prototype markings. The kit contains two large 18 inch long SSTs, one in landing and one in cruise configuration.

The damaging effects of sonic booms over population centers ultimately contributed to the cancellation of the project.
