Airfix Boeing 314 Pan Am Clipper - 'Dixie' or BOAC 'Berwick', 1/144, 04172-6

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Very finely and well molded kit. Very good details. Has decals for both aircraft. In the 1930s Pan Am was a household word in the USA for their romantic foreign routes and the glamorous 'China Clippers' that crossed the Pacific Ocean, stopping at such ports as Wake Island. Pan Am's attention soon turned to the Atlantic. Since non-stop service would be needed, a new aircraft was designed. The Boeing 314 was chosen. This huge flying boat started flying the Atlantic mail in 1939 with a trip over 26 hours long. Before the war, the 314 fleet flew the Pacific, Atlantic and other routes. The airliner was a palace compared to the cramped jets and limited service of today. The flight deck compared to the bridge of a ship and housed 6 crew. It was connected to the passenger cabin by a spiral staircase. The luxurious cabins were divided into 5 standard compartments, each seating 10 passengers, a dining salon for 14, a special compartment for four and a deluxe bridal suite. 74 could be carried on day trips and 40 when sleeping quarters for all passengers was required. Chefs prepared gourmet meals while passengers lounged in deeply cushioned wicker chairs and enjoyed a grand view of the scenery from about 5,000 feet. The age of the Clippers ended shortly after WWII when land planes could operate at much higher speeds than the flying boats.

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Hard to find first issue from 1969. This is the best example of this kit that I have personally seen. It is unusually complete with all first edition paperwork, factory sealed parts bags and an exceptional box. The box grades 'Exc++' and features like new color and gloss, all solid corners and is free from rips, tears, price tags or tape, tape or tag marks, etc. The only flaws are light surface wear and light scuffing. The tabs that close the box are intact and all internal packing material, including the holders for the completed kit, are intact. Mold quality is excellent as is typical with the first issue. (Molds become worn as reissued are made and detail becomes less crisp and flash appears.) This is the finest large scale injection molded kit of the legendary workhorse. Model actually comes apart and each sequence configuration of the Apollo Mission can be demonstrated with this model: Lift Off, 2nd stage, 3rd stage, separation, docking, lunar orbit, lunar module separation, lunar descent, lunar exploration, lunar lift-off, docking, starting for earth, separation, and reentry/recovery. Includes a clear panel for viewing the lunar module inside the Saturn V. A moon base is included in case you wish to display the Command Module and Lunar Module separately. The kit has never been started. The parts that were in bags are still in factory sealed bags. All parts that were never bagged have been inventoried 100% complete.
