ITC Halibut SSGN 587 Electric Powered Diving Motorized Submarine (Regulus Sub), 1/175, 3660-998

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

Sold   

This model is the zenith of the ITC Design and Engineering Team, and maybe of all operational plastic model kits. The model is not only rare but is considered the most complicated operating model ever produced. The large 24.75 inch long model sails from the power of a large electric motor driving twin geared propellers. It changes headings, dives, surfaces, and a Regulus II missile comes out of the hanger and launches...all automatically. The engineering on this kit is fantastic and was a major break-through in its day (about 1960). The high price and difficulties that youngsters had with assembly/operation made for a short production run. The model worked, and did work well, but was certainly not a toy for inexperienced model builders. This kit is unusual in that it did not have the common 'Seen on TV Maverick' sticker on the box top. Inside, the kit is in excellent condition. It has never been started. All plastic parts except the main hull 1/2s are still sealed in the factory bags (the hull was never sealed). The white parts bag and motor bags had a tear in each, so I removed the parts to inventory - they are 100% complete. The blue display cardboard is all present and good. Instructions are near mint with minor yellowing. NOTE: The box is poor. It is 100% intact with no missing sections, but there are corner splits, crease splits and significant staining as shown.

Aurora Batman - Original Issue, 1/8, 467-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Rare original hardbox Aurora issue from 1964. The box is in 'Excellent++' condition with fine color and gloss, four solid corners, minimal edge and corner wear, no litho tears or missing litho, no price tags or tape and no marks from tags or tape. The only flaw is a slight foxing in the far upper right (see photo) and very, very light general wear. Inside, the kit has not been started and is like new. The brown parts are still sealed in the factory bag. The light blue parts were never sealed and have been inventoried complete. The instructions are graded 'Exc+++' with the only flaw being very light yellowing on one panel.

Large 25.5 inch long classic kit with motorized propeller drive, automatically rotating main turrets, elevating main guns and can be programmed for straight, figure eight or circle sailing patterns. One of the nice things about this model is that it works very nicely. NOTE: the kit has minor assembly. Step one (front superstructure basic parts) has been completed. Also one boat and two gun director covers have been assembled. The quality of assembly is 'very good' and poses no problem to finishing the kit. There is no other assembly and no painting.

Revell Avro Dam Buster Lancaster, 1/72, H202-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

Sold   

First issue. Hardbox dated 1963 'With Secret Bomb'. Features specially modified Lancaster fuselage with Dam Buster bomb and release mechanism. Landing gear retracts, props and wheels turns and control surfaces move. Never started. Factory sealed bag or 100% inventoried with all parts/decals and instructions present. The Dam Busters squadron was famous for its daring raids on three German dams on May 16, 1943. Carrying the special Barnes Wallis-designed bombs, the Lancasters flew very low over the water in the face of heavy flak to drop the rotating bombs perfectly. Many did not return. The bombs did perform as promised, first skipping over the water, hitting the dam, then rolling down 30 feet before exploding with tremendous force. In an airburst, these bombs would not have damaged the dams, but since water is incompressible, the dams were breached.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Nice model from earlier molds. Can be built as a fighter or fighter bomber and includes decals and color paint guide for both Luftwaffe aircraft listed. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Frog is considered the father of injection molded model kits. The Lines Brothers opened Frog in 1932, capitalizing on the fever caused by Lindberg's solo transatlantic flight. Almost overnight the western populations became 'Air-Minded', and anything aviation was in high demand. Frog created a quality line of stick and tissue rubber powered aircraft and gliders as well as innovative ready-to-fly rubber powered aircraft that required no assembly. The box even contained a built-in rubber motor winder and fuselage holder. Model airplane flight competitions were popular in Great Britain, and one category was 'Rise Off the Ground', or ROG. By changing this to 'Flies Right Off the Ground', the FROG name was born. In 1936 Frog created a line of injection molded plastic models, the first such kit line in the world (Hawk sold a line of injection molded aircraft models in 1934 but they were factory assembled and painted). Named 'Penguin' after the bird that does not fly, the kits were innovative beyond the means of production. At a time when models were simply built by wingspan, the Penguin line was a constant 1/72 scale. Furthermore, a large 1/72 Short S.30 Empire class flying boat contained a full interior and lights! A line of accessories such as AA guns, tractors, hanger, ambulance, sound locator, searchlights and lighting kits were quickly added to the line. WWII caused a pause in production. After the war the box color changed from silver to green, and Penguin kits were also marketed in the USA. Production ended in 1950. Frog quickly expanded and released the Red, Orange, Black, Green, Gold Token, Spin and Comet series as well as Trail Blazers and several others. It is noteworthy that while most manufacturers in the 1940s/50 were making toy-like models, Frog attempted to make very realistic models. For example, 'detailing' kits with excessively large rivets was once very popular. Frog ignored this trend and continued to mold aircraft with fine panel lines and no rivets. As a result, Frog kits can be built into very realistic replicas. Production ended in the late 1970s, but Frog molds are still in use around the world.

Revell Great Eastern - First of the Great Steamships, 1/388, 05201

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Hard-to-find kit of this historic ship. 2002 Revell of Germany issue. Measures 22.25 inches long when built. Very nicely detailed model. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including all parts, metal chain, rigging material, flags, sails and instructions, all in 'as-new' condition. The Great Eastern (originally Leviathan) was the work of English Designer I.K. Brunel. In the 1850s there was a need for large ocean liners to carry the immigrant trade, but none existed. Shipping companies also wanted the interiors of ocean liners to look like hotels, but there simply no space. This ship was to solve that problem. She was launched in 1857 and five times bigger than any other ship of the day! The 22,500 ton Great Eastern was 693 feet long and carried 4000 passenger. Unfortunately, her career was one mishap after another until she found fame by laying the trans-Atlantic cable.
