1963 hardbox issue. This is the first Aurora issue of this ex-Comet model. This is the largest of the two Comet molds and features recessed surface detail, cockpit & cabin clear windows and full landing gear. Molded in gloss gray and clear. This model was given a clear Aurora two piece 'triangle world' stand, unlike many of the other Comet kits which only had a modified version of their original stands included. Of course this is not the production KC-135 but a model of the Boeing prototype "Dash 80" with USAF decals. The tail configuration on the box art is what the kit inside looks like. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$52   

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.

$145   

Still factory sealed. Nicely molded kit with all recessed panel lines. Includes decals for 201 through 205. The fantastic all-Canadian replacement for the CF-100 that was canceled immediately before the first production airframes left the assembly line.

1954 Pre-S issue. Very nicely detailed kit of the classic 'Wild West' Chuck Wagon (aka the first food truck). Features full suspension, rear shelves, back fold-down deck, coffee pot, pot, lamp, bell, accessories, two horses, calf, dog, two men and full suspension detail. Inside, the kit has not been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lou 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 - without figures and horses, 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. 1954 advertisements from Revell list the complete line as the H506 State Coach of England, H510 Ranch Wagon, H503 Covered Wagon, H502 Marquis de Lafayette Carriage, H504 Roman Racing Chariot, H501 Wells Fargo Stage Coach, H509 Western Figures and H507 Chuck Wagon.

SALE!! Includes all four HO kits in very good condition. The Life-Like Blue Spruce are still factory sealed. The Plasticville Covered Bridge is molded in the two colors shown on the box top and has never been started and is complete (there are no instructions; I believe that is because it's just that easy to build). The Faller Trees are #318 and look complete and never used; however there are no instructions. Again, I believe that is because they are so simple to build that instructions are not necessary. Faller B282 Shed has never been started and has been inventoried complete with all parts and instructions.

Enterprise Cycle Miniatures Tandem Bicycle And B1 Old High Wheeler, 1/15, B2

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$39   

SALE!! Includes both kits in the original boxes. Very rare. Enterprise was a very successful maker of balsa wood free-flight and control line aircraft models dating well back into the 1930s. In the early 1950s the Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' caught the attention of Enterprise staff. Enterprise maintained their own museum of rare and extraordinary old time bicycles, so it only seemed natural that the first (and only) two plastic kits from the company would represent bikes. The Tandem, based on an example from 1896 and is very nicely molded and detailed for that time. It includes a display base also. The 'Old High Wheeler' is also well detailed and includes a display stand. Both were fine kits issued in 1954 but did not sell well; production was discontinued after a short run. The Tandem has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. The Old High Wheel is complete with all parts and instructions but NOTE: it has minor and 'professional' quality assembly. The rear fork is glued to the frame. There is no other assembly.
