Monogram B-52 Stratofortress with Jet Sound - Vietnam Camouflage Issue - With All Internal Packing Material And Seal Frame, 1/72, PA215

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Rare 1969 issue has Vietnam-style boxart on a high-gloss box. It is even rarer to find this kit with all the cardboard and correct paperwork present. This is the 2nd release of this kit and the last with rare 'Jet Sound.' These models were designed with a major selling point - an internal parts display that could be seen by potential modelers at the store. While at your local hobby shop, you could lift the box top off and underneath was a fantastic display, all sealed by a yellow cardboard framed sheet of clear cellophane. This kit contains the yellow frame in 'good' condition and the cello is intact. Under the frame, all cardboard presentation is still 'near mint' and even includes the inner colored cardboard spacer. At this point (1969), Monogram had ceased making 'Monoglue', so the B-52 presentation cardboard usually had no glue; this one is no exception. Contains 207 parts. Very nicely detailed. Features crew of three, detailed cockpit, elevating and traversing rear turret, opening and closing bomb bay doors, operating wing flaps, operating spoilers, optional position entry hatch and landing gear, and optional parts to display one nacelle open to show the jet engine and of course battery-powered realistic Jet Sound. Molded in the correct dark green and clear. It has never been started. The metal and electrical hardware for "Jet Sounds" are still factory sealed. The other parts have been inventoried complete with decals, instructions, B-52 booklet and instructions present. Please NOTE that box displays better than the 'good++' rating but I graded it as such because there is tape residue on the bottom of the four side panels and has one closed split corner.

Lindberg US Space Station - First Issue, 1/350, 1002-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Very rare first issue from the 1950s and one in a series of very early science fiction kits with fantastic box art. Lindberg marketed the world's first plastic Sci-Fi kit, the UFO, and must have been encouraged by the results because they issued an entire series of fictitious but 'closer to real' space vehicles after the UFO. Molded in gloss white plastic and red-tinted clear. Never started. The actual Space Station itself has been inventoried complete; but NOTE: the stand base and the small metal stand rod are both missing. Otherwise includes all other parts, decals and instructions. A small part of the decals was once stuck to the instructions in one small area; one transfer is affected and there is a small hole and small tear in the instructions. The box displays better than the 'good' grade but is rated as such because of the creasing at the top center and top box side.

Airfix Boeing 314 Pan Am Clipper - Dixie or BOAC Berwick, 1/144, SK602

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Type three logo issue from the 1960s. 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 a crew of 6 in comfort. 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. This model includes decals for both aircraft listed. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Nothing was heard from the aircraft after take off and the aircraft and crew disappeared without trace. The Squadron lost 4 aircraft on this mission.
