Monogram Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat - (F6F5) Blue Box Issue, 1/48, PA80-150

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Dated 1967. Most likely the second issue of this classic kit and the first 'Blue Box' issue. Dated 1967. A great kit for that time that has many any action features - wings fold properly as on actual aircraft, landing gear retracts including tail wheel and arresting hook, wheels and prop rotates and it includes bombs, drop tanks and rockets. Molded in a beautiful gloss dark blue, black and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Revell USS Missouri - Pre 'S' Issue Narrow Box, 1/535, H301-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

First release 1953 hardbox pre 'S' kit. This is the first ship that Revell cut the molds for. Earlier Revell ship releases were Ex-Gowland and Gowland molds for the small scale sailing ship series. The box is graded Excellent and it is one of the better (not the best but close) I have seen, with excellent color. There is some edge wear and clear tape neatly applied to one corner. Inside the kit is 100% correct. The plastic is the high gloss medium gray. The instructions are the correct 'large' release for the first issue. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts, flag sheet and instructions present.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold

However, the kit inside is from the original "S" molds but is a much newer issue, probably from the late 1970s. The plastic is silver like the original but not as glossy. The decals are from this newer issue too and are in 'mint' condition. There is an original Revell "S" clear Swivel Globe base included but NOTE it is missing the small clear clamp. Kit features pilot and cockpit, drop tanks, bombs and full landing gear. The airplane has never been started and is complete with all parts.

Comet North American P-51B Mustang Speed Glider - 18 inch Wingspan Flying Model, G2

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

From 1944. The 'Speed Glider' here was designed by the great Carl Goldberg. This type of model was tied to a string, which was in turn connected to a wooden stick 2 or 3 feet long. An accomplished pilot could whip the aircraft around, performing an excellent variety of stunts. As you can imagine, the kit has very sturdy construction to take these high speed maneuvers. It features two sheets of die cut, thin hardwood parts, hardwood and balsa stock, two sheets of full color covering material with complete aircraft color, windows and insignia (which completely eliminates painting) and detailed plans with balance and flight information. The fuselage is profile, while the wings and tail surfaces are built up the traditional stick and tissue way. Although in the end, there is no tissue but the superb full color decorated paper wraps that cover all the surfaces of the model. This kit has never been started. Inventoried complete with all parts, covering papers and plans. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Mod-Ac Horse And Harness, 1/24, 053

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Rare. Age unknown - likely 1940s. This model contains a horse and full harness as an accessory to the extensive Mod-Ac carriage line in the same (1/24) scale. The horse is beautifully cast in one piece to the pose on the box top. There is no carving needed. Also includes harness material, formed wire parts, harness cutting templates and full instructions. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag. The other parts have been inventoried complete with the directions. If it were not for Mod-Ac, we would not have many accurate models of early historic Western transportation; as an added bonus, they were all made to a uniform 1/24 scale. Mod-Ac was a manufacture of early hobby kits out of Los Angeles California. During World War II they issued a well known kit line of military vehicles. The company was innovative as this kit shows - the wide variety of materials, pre-carved wood and highly detailed plans and instructions put this model many notches above the 'make wood look like vehicle' type of kit.
