Internal factory sealed bag including instructions. Superior Plastics Inc. listed their address as 426 N. Oakley Boulevard, Chicago12 , Illinois. They called themselves 'Custom Molders and Extruders.' From the sounds of things, Superior was an injection molding and extruding job shop which decided to go into the business of making model kits - and they did, cutting molds for a significant line of educational style model kits. Science kits appeared as early as 1962, and possibly earlier. Superior often referred to the kit line as 'Superlon' on the box top and instructions. The first building kit, 'Statue of Liberty', has a copyright of 1963. This kit was designed to be lit from the inside and came with lamp accessories. The second kit was the Taj Mahal and the third 'The Lincoln Memorial,' which could also be illuminated from within. Other kits included 'Yankee Stadium', 'United Nations Building', 'The Deep Sea Lobster', 'The Giant American Bull Frog', 'Unit of Life - Animal Vegetable Cell' and 'Amoeba.' They are best known, however for the anatomy series - 'The Thinking Man Human Skull', 'The Thinking Matter Human Brain', '3-D Human Body', 'Modern Man Skeleton', 'Vital Organs', 'The Beating Heart', 'The Mighty Molar', 'The Visible Pumping Heart', The Five Senses series with 'The Seeing Eye', 'The Listening Ear', 'Anatomy of Taste', 'Anatomy of Smell', 'Anatomy of Touch' and the 'World of Sensation', which was all five senses in one giant kit. The company was quite innovative and even had a patent on action for the Visible Pumping Heart. Sometimes the same kit was issued without a display case and sometimes with under a different part number. Other kits are said to exist are 'Grasping Hand' and the Skull and Brain together. Superior eventually sold off the molds, but the exact date is not know. Early boxes do not have zip codes, but later boxes list 60612, so production at least went into the later 1960s. The science kit molds were sold to 'Educational Products Inc' (EPI) and most of them were reissued. MDK bought the 5 building molds and reissued them all along with the Marx White House before the ceased production. The Statue of Liberty used to be for sale in the on-sight gift shop and still may be. Lindberg later purchased the all the science molds from EPI and have reissued many of them.

ITC CV-65 USS Enterprise - Motorized and with Cam-A-Matic Action, 1/390, 3658-2-1198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Rare action kit from the early 1960s. The ship sails in the water with an electric motor driving all four propellers. You can program the steering via the Cam-A-Matic drive to steer any number of patterns. While underway, the aircraft elevators move up and down and the ship launches aircraft. Inside, the kit has never been started and is like new. The original display cardboard is present and all parts and decals are still sealed in the factory bags. Instructions are included and as in new condition. The kit is advertised 'For the Advanced Hobbyist' on the box top and I would agree. There are a great many parts and no shortage of moving features and complications. ITC did not shy away from making advanced kit like this and the diving Halibut submarine (dives, surfaces, steers patterns and launches a Regulus II missile) but many kits were returned by frustrated parents and children who did not have the experience to build more complicated models. However, when built properly, they worked and they worked well.

Aurora The Bluenose Schooner with Sails, 1/124, 431-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


First issue dated 1957 with dramatic Jo Kotula box artwork. Nicely molded. Large scale full hull kit with vacuform sails, detailed deck, metal anchor chain, display stand and complete rigging instructions. Molded in green and wood tan. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. Even includes original tissue paper. NOTE: box looks much better than the 'Good-' rating. I have rated it so low because someone cut a 4 x 2 inch section out of one short box top side.
