Strombecker Temco TT-1 Navy Primary Trainer, 1/48, D36-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare kit in very good condition. The notoriously thin Strombecker box is very well preserved with excellent color and four solid corners.

The kit was still sealed with a clear cellophane panel glued to the inside of the box lid. The inner cellophane is intact. Strombecker was most famous for making the finest in wooden kits. During the short time that they made wooden kits, they released many interesting subjects that are desirable today. Nicely molded kit with recessed panel lines and very complete decals. Features crew, ejection seats, instrument side and main panel detail, opening canopy and optional position landing gear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

G-Mark-Gakken Bell 47G-2 Helicopter, 1/20, GP-1003

Metal and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Very rare. This is a very large 1/20 scale Bell 47 kit that uses a variety of materials. It is almost universally agreed that there is no finer or more detailed Bell 47 kit available, and it is widely considered the finest helicopter kit ever produced. The elaborate fuselage is completely hand-soldered brass tubing. Also cast in brass is the main rotor mast and landing skids. Other metal parts include very small screws, springs and door frames. The brass body is completely assembled and primed at the factory. Quality of workmanship is professional. The package contains a specially cut foam insert so that the brass parts cannot be damaged in transit. Under this foam is a large, long brown box. Inside is the reminder of the parts and they are still factory sealed. The parts are injection molded in ivory and clear. There is a large decal sheet for what appears to be many helicopters and full instructions. All internal packing material is in mint condition. The kit has never been started and all parts, decals and instructions are factory bag sealed. The box is near mint. Gakken began plastic kit production in 1965 and used Gakken and G-Mark as logos. As far as we know, three different kits were produced. Production of these kits ended in about 1985. Gakken has actually been in manufacturing since 1947 and still produces other toys and kits of items such as an Edison Phonograph, telescope, radio, etc.
