Revell M-50 Ontos (ex-Renwal), 1/32, 8302

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold   

1982 Revell reissue of the excellent Renwal kit. Very highly detailed kit including working treads, some interior detail, opening hatches and covers and more. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The Ontos was a unique vehicle. Ontos is a Greek word for 'The Thing' and the vehicles lives up to that. Developed along a new concept in mobile warfare, the Ontos has little defense other than movement but a very powerful offensive punch. It carries six 106mm recoilless rifles and .50 caliber spotting rifles. The firing sequence went like this: the crew of three would get out and hand load the six large guns. Then the Ontos would quickly move towards the target. Once sited, the gunner would fire the .50 caliber machines guns until he saw them hit the target - this assured that the 6 big rifles were on target also. At the time, he could fire a full salvo of 6 or in steps of two. The 8.5 ton vehicle would then speed away, moving to a safe location to reload.

UPC USSR Patrol Torpedo Boat PT-8 - No. 915 for Motorizing, 1/87, 5008-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

Sold   

Rare kit from UPC with box artwork by Eidson. The mold origins of this kit are not known. The kit can be motorized but the motor was not furnished with the kit - like virtually all UPC kits. The kit includes battery contacts, metal shaft and prop, switch and switch contacts, wire and U-joint. The plastic parts are molded in dark blue. The kit has not been started. NOTE: missing one of two crew members. Inventoried complete with all other parts, Soviet decals, instructions and motorizing hardware. Please note that the instructions show two ways to motorize the kit - the parts are included for the instructions on the back. Why UPC listed two ways is confusing at best, as each requires a different set of hardware. UPC stood for Universal Powermaster Corporation which was based out of New York City, NY. UPC did not cut their own molds, but bought kits already molded from other manufacturers and re-boxed the kits in the USA. Scott Eidson, the famous artist best known for his artwork with Revell, also did UPC box art in the 1960s. All UPC production ended in the 1970s.

Sterling Ansaldo S.V.A. 5 That Drops Leaflets in Flight - 19 nch Wingspan R/C / Freeflight / Control Line Aircraft - (SVA-5), A18

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold   

Still factory sealed. 19 inch wingspan kit for RC, free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically dropping 'propaganda leaflets' in flight. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to RC or control line.

The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.
