KVZ Ilyushin Il-62 Aeroflot, 1/100, 15000

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$75   

Very hard to find kit with fantastic Cold War Box art. KVZ was the logo used by this East German kit manufacturer from 1969 to 1973. During this time, some unique Cold War kits were produced of Russian Airliners and Military Helicopters and Aircraft. NOTE: The box art is Interflug, but the kit decals are for Aeroflot. This was common. Large and colorful decal sheet is in like-new condition. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing one tiny 'bumper' wheel on the underside of the fuselage. Easily replaced or made. Otherwise includes all other parts, decals and instructions.

Frog Percival Proctor IV Trainer Blue Series, 1/72, 341P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$34   

Finely molded in dark yellow and clear and features separately molded rudder, elevators and ailerons, cockpit and figures and rotating prop and wheels. 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.

Monogram Pro Modeler Heinkel He-111 H-22 with Air Launched V-1 Missile, 1/48, 5926

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$62   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

Dated 1995. Very nice kit of the airborne vengeance weapon launcher. Markings for KG53 'Legion Condor' or KG53 'Blitz-Geschwader'. These first cruise missile launchers reached operational status and limited success in operations. Missions went well but the accuracy of the V-1 was the primary limitation. Kit is highly detailed with complete interior, all recessed panel lines rotating props and weighted wheels. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Testors F-19 Stealth Concept Fighter, 1/48, 595

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$42   

Rare 1/48 large scale version of the incorrect Stealth Fighter. Much money was spent to manufacture the molds for this kit, but it was quickly pulled from production as soon as photos of the real fighter revealed significant difference. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Tern Aero Ryan ST - 17 Inch Wingspan Rubber Flying Aircraft, 109-275

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$18   

Very high quality rubber powered free-flight model with simplified stick and tissue assembly and a wingspan of about 17 inches.

Sterling Albatros DII-A (D-II) - 27 3/4 Inch Wingspan Flying RC Model, E9

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$69   

27.75 inch wingspan kit for RC, CO2, free flight, control line or non-flying detailed scale kit. This kit has minor, neat assembly. The spinner, wheel halves and machine gun halves have been cut out, and one wheel and one machine gun halves assembled to professional quality. There is no other assembly. Inventoried complete with all parts, plans and decals present. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to RC or control line.

Monogram Colonial Viper from Battlestar Galactica, 1/24, 6027

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$58   

Original release from 1978; not the common reproduction. Very finely molded and detailed kit with traditional high Monogram quality. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

$39   

Golden Age is a high quality company committed to reissuing classic stick and tissue kits and plans from the 1930s Golden Age of flying models.

The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Revell McDonnell Douglas DC-10 Airbus United Air Lines, 1/144, 3401

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

$69   

Still factory sealed. Dated 1979. Nice Revell/Advent issue of this Tri-Jet. This kit features very colorful United decals, optional position landing gear, rotating wheels, detailed engine pods, clear cockpit window, separate wing flap hinges and more. McDonnell-Douglas and Lockheed both produced tri-jets for an over-estimated market, which lead to neither design being very financially successful.

Ace Whitman USS Seadragon SS194 Submarine (Sargo Class) - Balsa Ship Model Kit, 1/169, 2994

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$79   

Rare, large scale 22 inch long hollow display model likely from the 1940s. It builds up with hull bulkheads and stringers and is intended to be tissue or silk covered, although it would be much wiser to either cover it with thin balsa or plank it like a plank-on-frame ship model. The photos (on the back of the box and on the plans) of the built model are impressive and realistic; no doubt, you can make an incredible, almost one-of-kind kit from it. However, there is a great deal of scratch building expected, which is typical of kits from that time. It is certainly not recommended for beginners. The builder should be highly experienced with stick and tissue methods and scratchbuilding fittings and more.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$32   

Still factory sealed. 1979 issue of one of Revell's best selling ship kits of all time. The model builds to just over 15.75 inches long and has excellent detail for the scale.

Otaki Aero Spacelines Guppy 201, 1/144, OT-2-11-1000

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$85   

Classic oversize-lifting cargo aircraft. A very well molded kit featuring all fine recessed panel lines, rotating props, full landing gear, a display stand and full decals including fuselage stripes. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The Guppy could handle a 60 foot yacht, helicopter, fighter aircraft, spacecraft sections or other odd cargo. The Guppy was originally built in 1967 and successfully logged hundreds of thousands of miles.

Flyline Models 1929 Velie Monocoupe - 22 inch Wingspan RC/Free Flight or Rubber Model, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$39   

This kit was sold new in 1974 and purchased direct from Flyline; there are even a few letters with advertisement flyers enclosed for other Flyline kits. Made for rubber free flight, but easily converted to co2 power or electric RC with today's light and tiny servos & receivers. Flyline Models was a manufacturer out of Fairfax, Virginia USA. The models are known for their high quality. The kit contains full size detailed plans, separate, detailed instructions, engine cylinder materials, high quality printed balsa sheets, strip and spar stock, decals, finished wheels, rubber motor, hardware and more. There has been no assembly but NOTE: some ribs and bulkheads have been neatly cut out to 'professional' quality. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag. The other parts have been inventoried complete with all paperwork. Flyline Models operated from a mailing address of 10643 Ashby Place, Fairfax Virginia and had a very high quality, extensive line of beautiful stick and tissue models for R/C and free flight - many of them true scale. I believe it was operated by Herb Clukey. If you have more information, please let me know so I can update this.
