Rare first issue from the 1950s. Lindberg made the world's first plastic science fiction model, the famous UFO.

Display base and scale figures are included. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the box displays slightly better than the 'fair++' rating but is graded a such because of very serious wear at the very bottom and also on the lower short box panel.

Revell Medicine Wagon - Miniature Masterpiece, 1/48, H521-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$85   

Rare 1955 issue and a highly detailed model for that time. Features medicine wagon with detailed suspension and open rear platform, colorful decals for Doctor Brown's Snake Oil, two horses, Dr. Brown, one entertainer, Indian, local man and a local woman with her young boy and girl. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays much better than the 'good++' rating; it is graded as such because of the very light staining restricted to the very top of the box top. There is similar light staining to the adjacent long side. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lew Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although the molds were made at Adams and it had the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. Originally 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 and in that year and the next, kits were labeled 'Revell' with a 'Miniature Masterpiece' label on the box top also.

Maircraft Monocoupe - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, S111-350

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$25   

Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work. This kit features a full size plans, profile cut fuselage, wings and tail feathers, wood stock, fully formed wheels and propeller. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes plans.
