Resin Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
Very rare; this the only 1/350 scale model ever made of this ship. Yankee Modelworks 1/350 were advertised as the World's Finest 1/350 Ship Kits, and that was no idle boast. All resin parts are cast from de-aired molds in a pressure chamber, ensuring that every detail is sharp and there are zero to few air bubbles. Careful design of the molds also nearly eliminated resin flash. The cast metal fine details are stunning and it can be built full hull or waterline. The large and extensive set of two brass photoetched frets are the equivalent of a modern 'Super Detail' PE set. This model can be built waterline or full hull. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Very rare kit dated 1961 with fantastic high-gloss box art. Even rarer in this condition- the box is in amazing investment-grade 'Near Mint+' condition. Color and gloss are factory new. All four corners are solid, and there are no repairs, no price tags, no fading, no rips or litho damage. The only tape is the factory sealing tape.

Molded in silver, black and clear. Inside, the kit is a nice as the box. Inventoried and NOTE: missing (1) main gear strut and (4) tiny wheel axles. Includes all other parts, decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
Very rare. From 1952 or '53. This is one of (if not) Revell's first gift set. It is Gowland-produced with no part number. Gowland designed and molded these kits as well as providing the box artwork (signed D.K. Gowland) and instructions - Revell did the marketing. Inside, the kit is correct with all cardboard dividers, all small parts still factory sealed in the correct wax paper bags, cars molded in red, black, dark blue, yellow and green, tires molded in black and correct instructions. The models have never been started. All kits have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts present. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. By the late 1910 and early '20s, many dedicated modelers were building flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. By the 1930s, the 'Aviation Craze" had taken hold of this country and kits appeared everywhere. However, it was estimated at the time that at least 80% of these were never sucessfully completed (and fewer than that flown). That changed in the early 1950s with the advent of plastics and affordable injection molding equipement. The phenomenon of the all-plastic Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles were completely molded to shape in color and could be built in an hour after dinner. When complete, they looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys...and adult males as well!

Wood and Metal Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
In the 'Golden Age of Aviation Modeling' (1930s and '40s), most modelers built the flying 'stick and tissue' type kits with rubber, CO2 or gas power. But there were a small but measurable percent that built solid aircraft display models of great detail. This required great skill worthy of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited technology. Many manufacturer's kits consisted of blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits. A few, like Dyna-Model Products Company, attempted to provide true-scale static models with a high level of detail. Today Dyna-Models are legendary and sought after collectibles. When you first open the kit, you see a black and white cardstock display with all the needed jigs and templates for assembly. Underneath, the twin fuselages are rough carved to ~95% of final shape (not just profile cut) and all other parts are either profile (2D) or die cut. Includes color decals, full size high-quality plans and the crowning jewel, a box of finished metal castings for super detailing your aircraft. The model has been inventoried complete with all parts and plans present. NOTE: one vertical stabilizer has been neatly assembled (to "professional" quality) on one fuselage. There is no other assembly.

Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+
Rare model from 1946 for the advanced Hawk collector. Hawk was one of the few manufacturers making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48.

This model features profile (2D) cut wooden fuselage, wings and tail feathers, injection molded wheels, propeller and 2 machine guns, wooden stock as needed, metal seat, full color decals and high quality, full-size plans. Never started and complete. The decals are intact but have typical age micro-cracking.

Rare model for the advanced collector. Hawk was one of the few manufacturers making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48 in the 1930s.

It features a profile (2D) carved wooden fuselage, wings, rudder and elevator, wooden stock for struts, etc, fully formed wheels, metal propeller, sandpaper, a sheet with wing registration numbers and quality, full-size plans with wing and fuselage templates.

Wood and Metal Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Very rare and highly detailed model from Allen Baker's legendary Ship Model Shop. This was the last kit he issued, and there are two personally signed letters from Mr. Baker included with the kit. Very high quality kit features 90% factory finished hardwood hull, perfectly cut and crisp wood superstructure parts, a vast number of cast metal fittings, a large sheet of photoetched brass details, wood, plastic and metal stock as required, a beautiful set of dry transfers designed by Mr. Baker and custom made by Chartpak. Paperwork includes instructions, plans, sales material, color photos and various photocopies of plans. Carefully inventoried against the included parts list and NOTE: missing (2) of (16) small bitts and the (4) flat Aegis Antenna Enclosures; very easily made by cutting them from sheet styrene. All original paperwork is included but please NOTE: Mr. Baker had difficulty in releasing this final kit. So the instructions are generic (from the FFG7 kits) and a set of assembled plans. He apologizes in the letter for the standard of documentation. I only recommend this model if you are comfortable building a ship from plans.
