Kemziv Antonov AN-2M, 1/50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

This is a large almost 1/48 scale kit of the popular and successful AN-2, the world's largest single engined biplane. The model has never been started and is complete with markings and instructions. The small parts bag is still factory sealed. The markings are CCCP and Aeroflot for a civil AN-2 transport. This model is the Ex-MEE 1/50 AN-2 kit that was sold as a built up display model and a kit. Production ended at MEE in about 1984. Some molds passed to Genton at that point, and obviously Kemziv got them at some point. Thanks to Tom Marino for help on this.

Scale Flight Comet's Mr. Mulligan - 16 inch Wingspan Dime Scale Flying Airplane, Dime

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Scale Flight Model Company in Bloomington, Indiana, USA was dedicated to releasing authentic reproductions of the finest "Dime Scale" flying model (stick and tissue) kits from the 1930s/40s. Dime Scale models used to sell for a dime in the 1930's, hence the name. They are actually box scale, but as a general guideline, they usually had a wingspan of 16 inches and have simple and light construction. "Dime Scale" models are now a class flown in some competitions. Kit consists of contest grade printwood, contest quality strip wood, machine cut balsa propeller, the best Japanese tissue, wooden wheels, competition bushed nose plug, brass thrust washers, prop shaft, prop freewheeler, FAI rubber strip motor and a copy of a genuine dime scale plan that was used in the 1930s-1940s. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Haji 1950s USAF Biplane - Tin Lithographed Friction Powered Toy with Rotating Propeller, 1/48

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

Sold   

Very clean and original all-metal tin litho toy from Haji in Tokyo, Japan. Also known as Mansei Toy Company, they went into business in 1951 to no doubt enter the booming post-war toy export market. Measures 8.25 inches long with a 11.25 inch wingspan; I have listed the scale as roughly 1/48 as it looks like a JN-4 Jenny in that scale. This piece is guaranteed to be old and not a reproduction. It came from the estate of a model collector who took exceptional care of his toys. There are no dings or dents - it appears to have never been played with. The paint is graded as 'excellent+++' but with cleaning it could be 'near mint'. Gloss and shine are as new. Identified as 'Haji Made in Japan' on the right fuselage just below the horizontal stabilizer. The motion is from a friction motor which also turns the propeller and makes a loud, satisfying noise.

Revell The State Coach of England - Circa 1760 - with 8 Horses and 6 Figures - Miniature Masterpieces Issue, 1/48, H506-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Rare 1954 kit in investment-grade condition. The box is near mint and has like-new gloss and shine. Inside, the kit is molded in the correct red (wagon) and white (horses and figures). The kit has never been started and is still sealed in the original krinkle bags. The instructions are in excellent condition. '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. At the time of the 'takeover', Revell cut the horses and figures for this kit and it was the first 'Revell' release. 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.
