Air Lines General Aircraft Ltd Hotspur II Glider, 1/72, 7904

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Well detailed kit from ex FROG molds. Never started. Factory sealed bag or 100% inventoried with all parts/decals and instructions present. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

Heller Le Soleil Royal, 1/100, 1500

Vaccuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Museum quality (over 2300 pieces) reproduction of the famous flagship "Royal Sun" of the French Navy under the Count of Tourville in 1692. The ship was part of an epic sea battle where she took unbelievable damage and fought against all odds. This model has amazing detail. Has full rigging instructions, rigging material and billowing sails. Never started. Inventoried with all plastic parts present. Includes instructions. NOTE: instructions are photocopies. Because Heller used a non-standard large sheet of paper, the Copy Center had to split each page in two. There is over 1" of overlap on each sheet, so they can be matched up with excellent results. NOTE: missing decal sheet.

OldModelKits SS Rex Ocean Liner - With ScaleDecks Wood Deck - Italian Line / Mid To Late 1930s, 1/350

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


Finally, the Pride of the Italian Line in 1/350 scale! The SS Rex is from the same team that brought you the 1/350 SS Normandie Ocean Liner. This four year project is a 100% new model and represents the Rex in her glory years of the mid 1930s. All design work was done in CAD by Ken Friend, a master modeler, designer and builder of experimental engines and test equipment and an engineer who specialized in CAD/CAM/CAE Systems Management and Implementation. All of the smaller parts are printed on ultra-high resolution 3D SLA resin printers. These parts meet and often exceed what is possible with injection molded plastic. Only the larger parts (hull, deck pieces and funnels)are cast resin. These are pressure-cast from de-aired molds to minimize air bubbles. The Italian Line advertised that "The Southern Route Is the Lido Deck Route." By virtue of avoiding the stormy and cold North Atlantic, travelers experienced a true outdoor lifestyle. The Rex was intentionally designed for this. For this model, extensive research and time was spent capturing the exact look of the colorful 1st and 2nd Class Aft Pool Areas- from the changing room & showers, grab rope on the pool, pool slide, stairs & diving boards, tables with umbrellas, recessed (covered) 1st Class Restaurant/Lounge and more.Because of the superior performance of 3D Printing, over 90% of the usual PE (photoetched) metal parts are now 3D printed resin. This is a vast improvement as they are no longer flat, but are true to the shape of the prototype. This also makes for a nearly complete model "out-of-the-box." Includes a real wood deck from Scaledecks. NOTE: railings are the only parts not included with the model shown. They are not required to complete the kit, however they are sold separately.

UPC Covered Wagon - With Driver / Two Oxen / Horse And Rider - (ex Adams / Revell / Miniature Masterpieces /Life-Like), 1/48, 4010-100

Vaccuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


A rare model that is very finely engraved and well detailed. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. UPC stood for Universal Powermaster Corporation which was based out of New York City, NY. UPC did not cut their own molds, but either leased molds or bought kits already molded from other manufacturers and re-boxed them in the USA. Scott Eidson, the famous artist best known for his artwork with Revell, also did UPC box art in the 1960s including this model. All UPC production ended in the 1970s. This kit has a fascinating history. It started life as one of the 'Miniature Masterpieces,' which was the brainchild of an alliance between Lou Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although having the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell right down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. However, there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954, making the one-year original issues very rare. However, while Revell was now issuing them under their name, Adams was also issuing the line in 1958. Production was discontinued by both companies in the early 1960s; the molds then ended up with UPC. By the early 1970s, Life-Like ended up with many of the Adams molds and wound up owning the complete, original 'Miniature Masterpieces' line. Life-Like reissued them several times in that decade but the current whereabout of the molds are not known.
