Revell Los Angeles Dodgers Lockheed Electra II, 1/115

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM


SALE! Very rare. Special issue of the Dodgers Team Aircraft made by Revell just for the concessions dealer 'Danny Goodman' for the LA Dodgers, Inc. I purchased this kit along with the Revell factory shipping carton. This carton was originally sold to Union 76 Service Station #3459, located at 12080 Ventura Blvd in Studio City California. The case was shipped directly from Revell in Los Angeles to the Union Oil Station; the gas station owner's son confirmed this. (Somehow Danny Goodman was bypassed in the transaction!). The kit is fresh from the original shipping carton with no more wear than you would expect. The box is in investment grade 'near mint' condition with the only flaws being some yellowing and light wear on the paper label. Inside, the kit is factory new. All parts, decals and instructions are still sealed in the Revell factory bag. The kit includes a wonderful photo of the 1963 Dodgers - World's Champions!

Superb kit from the 1950s and makes a very impressive display when built. This highly prefabricated model made from solid Western Pine - not balsa wood.

In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - usually only a quick sanding would finish them.

AMT 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Promo With Original Box And Tissue Paper, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Very, very rare promotional model, especially in this condition and with the original box. The box is stamped "CORVETTE CONV. 1736 SILVER PEARL." This is a one-owner model that was obtained new on November 5, 1965 in Lexington KY. It has never been displayed and has been stored in the original box and tissue since it left the factory. It is 100% complete and original with zero repairs or touch-ups. The paint and chrome are in factory-new condition. There is zero body warp and the clear is in 'mint' condition. I would grade this one 9.5 out of 10 with 10 flawless. The deduction is because there is a closed split (fits back perfectly) at the drivers side vent frame and the A pillar. Nothing is broken off, and the crack closes perfectly (it is invisible), so this is completely repairable; but I'll leave that to the new owner. Even includes the original factory packing paper. The box is complete with all flaps and solid but has wear as shown and age foxing.

Revell George Washington SSBN-598 Nuclear Powered Polaris Missile Submarine 'S' Issue, 1/261, H365-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


Rare, first issue dated 1958 with "S" cement logos on the box sides. Please note that Revell soon made drastic modifications to this mold, which made a reissue impossible. This is the first cut-away Polaris sub with interior that got Revell in hot water with the US Government - the Navy had thought that Revell had breeched security to obtain the details for the model. This one is in exceptional condition with 'excellent+' color and gloss, for solid corners with no repairs, no price tags or tag marks, no tape or tape marks other than the factory tape marks and no fading. The only flaws are general light and even wear. The model was highly detailed for that time will full interior and snap-off starboard hull half and two Polaris missiles that 'fire' using spring power. The kit has never been started. Molded in the correct gloss medium gray, light green and black plastic. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions as well as the special booklet 'The Story of Our Underwater Nuclear Navy.'

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good


This is a factory-sealed case of 12 Hobby-XV-3 model kits from the 1950s. Hobby-Time shipped them to the address on the box, and I purchased them from the man at that address. The case has never been opened and is still securely sealed top and bottom with the factory tape. The box is in 'excellent' condition. The actual model kits (12 inside the case!) are the one and only issue of this amazing aircraft. This is a very nice kit for that time with fine raised panel lines, interior detail and molded in gloss silver and clear.
