Legato Caproni AP-1 - Italian light Bomber, 1/72, LK055

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$115   

Still factory sealed and a very rare model. This is a high quality resin model and the only kit ever made of this aircraft. This history is from military-history.fandom.com: Developed from the Ca.301, a single-seat fighter version of a similar design that was not put into production, the AP.1 was a two-seater version, fitted with a more powerful Alfa Romeo radial. Designed to serve both as a fighter and an attack aircraft, it was a low-wing monoplane with a fixed, trousered (spats are when the wheels are covered, trousers cover the landing gear legs) undercarriage, of mixed construction. Although it was a monoplane at a time when many of the air forces of the world were flying biplanes, the Caproni was still an anachronism with fixed landing gear (at that time, most planes also had fixed landing gear). The AP.1 prototype first flew on 27 April 1934. An initial series of 12 aircraft was delivered within 1936. In the same year, the Regia Aeronautica ordered a second series with improvements including a more powerful Alfa Romeo engine and more aerodynamic landing gear. In service, the large landing gear spats were often removed for ease of maintenance. The Caproni AP.1 equipped a total of eight squadriglie (Italian air unit equivalent to half an RAF squadron) of the assault wings of the Regia Aeronautica. It took part in the Spanish Civil War, but its unsatisfactory performance led to its quick replacement with the also disappointing Breda Ba.64, Ba.65 and Ba.88 types. Four examples were acquired by El Salvador for use in the Escuadrilla de Caza (a fifth aircraft was shipped to replace an aircraft which crashed during a ferrying flight), and another seven were sold to Paraguay and used in the Chaco Postwar period (1939-1945). Another 10 aircraft ordered by Paraguay were diverted to the Regia Aeronautica.

Legato Savoia-Marchetti SM-93, 1/72, LK056

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$180   

Still factory sealed and a very rare model. This is a high quality resin model and the only kit ever made of this aircraft. This history is from thereaderwiki.com: The Savoia-Marchetti SM.93 was an Italian dive bomber designed and produced in Italy from 1943. It was an all-wood single-engined low-wing monoplane with retractable undercarriage. The fuselage had a monocoque structure, with a single fin and low-set tailplane. The crew of two were accommodated under a long greenhouse-style canopy, with the pilot lying in a prone position above the rear of the engine, a Daimler-Benz DB 605A liquid-cooled V12 engine, while the gunner/radio-operator sat facing rearwards on a conventional seat. The two-spar wings were in three parts with the inner wings sharply tapered to the join, outboard of the landing gear attachments, and the outer wings moderately tapered to the rounded wingtips. The prone position for the pilot was intended to enable the pilot to resist the onset of g-induced loss of consciousness, but the position was uncomfortable for normal flight and severely limited the rearwards view of the pilot. The SM.93 made its maiden flight on January 31, 1944, and up to March 29, 1944 the SM-93 had made 16 test-flights with speeds up to 900 kilometres per hour (560 mph) achieved in a dive, demonstrating the low drag and clean aerodynamics. Flight testing was carried out under the aegis of the Luftwaffe and despite the good performance, the prone position was found to be unsatisfactory, being uncomfortable and restricting rearward vision. The program was halted by the German control Commission that was running weapons production in the Repubblica Sociale Italiana - RSI after the 1943 armistice.

Amodel UTI-4 - Two Seat I-16 Trainer, 1/72, 7231

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$18   

Still factory sealed. The I-16 was speedy and maneuverable but tricky to fly for pilots used to biplanes. The answer was to create the UTI-4 fighter trainer. It was first made by taking an I-16 airframe and adding an extra cockpit. Many were built for VVS and played a critical role in transitioning the fighter pilots to single-wing aircraft.

Monogram B-26 Invader - Four Star Issue / True Second Issue, 1/67, P6-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$54   

Rare, true second issue from 1955. Few people (including me) knew that there was a second release of P6-98 that varied significantly from the first issue. The first issue has a part number of 'P6-98', early '4 star' rectangle logo, black rubber main gear tires and no support peg to keep it from being a 'tail sitter' when assembled. The second issue (this kit) has the same part number, logo but has regular injection molded (silver) tires and a peg to keep the nose gear grounded. The instructions show these changes are are numbered P6, as are the decals. Molded in correct gloss silver and clear plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Cessna 337 Skymaster - BAGGED, 1/72, 279-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$28   

NOTE: this is a bagged kit; there is no box. The box is shown for reference only. 1968 issue of the famous tandem light aircraft that saw civil and military service. After Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they reissued the Comet civil light aircraft line. It appears that Aurora may have been inspired by the Comet kits or sales of the reissues, and they produced several more new molds to add to the line. This Skymaster is one of those kits. Since the model was designed new, it has significantly more detail than the older Comet kits. Features all recessed panel lines, full interior with front and back bulkheads, four bucket seats and instrument panel, clear windows and rotating propellers. The kit has never been started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing the square nose gear door, which is easily made from flat styrene stock. Otherwise complete with all other pieces, decals and instructions. NOTE: decals are 100% complete and in very good condition, but the sheet has been neatly cut into three sections. No transfers were cut.

Yellow Cat Type 1 Halftrack APC Hoha, 1/35, 35014

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$145   

Very, very rare and highly detailed model cast in high definition resin. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. From tanks-encyclopedia.com: The Type 1 Ho-Ha half-track was an armored personnel transport designed and introduced by the Imperial Japanese Army in 1941 and finally put into production in 1944. Its main purpose was to help the modernization of the Imperial Japanese Army by increasing the number of mechanized infantry regiments. This way, Japanese ground forces would catch up with other developed nations of the time that had already invested in this field, specifically the US. Mechanized infantry, unlike regular units, would have been faster and would have had an easier time dealing with the rough terrain that was more and more often encountered by the Japanese as the war progressed in China and in the hilly or mountainous landscape of the Pacific islands.

Yellow Cat Japanese Army Type 4 Medium Tank Chi-To, 1/35, 35029

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$149   

Very, very rare and highly detailed model cast in high definition resin. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. From tanks-encylopedia.com: The Type 97 Chi-Ha's successor - Type 4 Chi-To.Among the various medium tank designs developed in 1944, the Chi-To was probably the most promising. The development started while the Type 97 Chi-Ha Kai was still in production in 1943. The specifications were simple, requiring 75 mm (2.95 in) of armor and a high velocity 75 mm (2.95 in) gun. It was indented to be used against the most current Allied tank of the time, the M4 Sherman. The Type 4 Chi-To plans were ready in early 1944, but production was delayed due to steel shortages, mostly reserved to the Imperial Navy. Allied bombings and US submarine tactics also played their role in these shortages. Eventually, only two were built, a prototype and a pre-production vehicle, tested in 1944. Mitsubishi planned an optimistic 25 tank delivery rate per month, which was never realized. In the fall of 1944, it was decided to keep these tanks for the defense of the Japanese home islands. It is not known if the pre-production tank ever reached full operational status. Nonetheless, if the war took another course and the Olympic Operation would have been carried out, the Type 4 Chi-To would have been a formidable opponent, equal to the late variants of the Sherman. It was the most advanced Japanese tank to reach pre-operational level during WWII.
