Yellow Cat Japanese Navy Particular Type 2 Motor Launch Ka-mi Late, 1/35, 35024

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$119   

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. The Special Type 2 Launch Ka-Mi (Toku-ni-shiki uchibitei kami) was the first amphibious tank of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) in WWII. However, too few were produced too late for it to have an impact. The Ka-Mi was designed, initially, to assault islands. However, by the time it entered service, the Japanese forces were already on the defensive. They were used for infantry support, sometimes as moving pillboxes. Three formed the 1st Yokosuka Special Naval Landing Force based at Saipan, while two saw action in Leyte in 1944. They were affected to various naval garrison detachments in the Southern Pacific and East Indies. The USMC encountered the Ka-Mi when assaulting the Marianna and Marshall islands, at Guam, Aitape and Biak in New Guinea, and during the invasion of Leyte. Some sources claim that, off the coast of Leyte, USMC LVTs attacked and destroyed some Ka-Mis. Two survived to this day at the Kubinka Museum and on Palau island.

Adams Thor Missile at White Sands - With Launch Pad And Crew, 1/87, K162

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+++

$225   

This rare kit dated 1958 and features a well detailed Thor missile, complete launching tower and ground crew of three. Molded in gloss white and medium gloss gray. Decals and instructions are in amazing 'near mint' condition. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box displays much better than the 'good+++' grade. It is graded as such because at the factory, workers used black paint to remove the price extension from the kit number. The lower short side panel is neatly done, but they used a little too much paint on the top short panel and there is a run.

Revell Moon Ship - (XSL-01) 'S' Issue, 1/96, H1825-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$349   

Rare 1957 first and only Revell issue in investment-grade "Near Mint" condition. When sales of the dramatic XSL-01 Moon Rocket did not meet expectations, Revell molded the top stage in a different color plastic from the XSL-01, added a special 3D Moon Base Stand and boxed it as this stand-alone kit. The result was this Moon Ship with incredible box art. The box art invites you to 'Enter the Age of Space' with these action features: retractable landing ski, removable fuselage section with detailed cabin with controls and instrument panels and a crew of three astronauts. Molded in correct baby blue plastic. This model has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Box condition details: The color and gloss are perfect. The box looks as if it was just removed from the original shipping box. It actually displays 'Mint' but is graded as 'Near Mint' because there is a very small factory tape litho pull on the long upper long side. The litho pull is on the bottom edge and measures 7mm x 7mm.

Revell USS Pine Island Seaplane Tender - With PBM-5 Mariner Seaplane, 1/424, H362-169

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$125   

Original issue 'S' hardbox is dated 1958 and is in excellent condition. Not the 1990s reissue. Very nicely detailed and molded for that time featuring moving cranes and main gun turrets, separately molded AA armament, detailed Martin PBM-5 Mariner Seaplane and more. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. NOTE: while all parts are present, one yardarm is broken off the fore kingpost and is missing. Easily replaced with stock plastic or pulled sprue. NOTE: the decals are present but in 'poor' condition due to bug damage. Instructions are 'good++' and have no bug damage. The 1950s "S" USS Norton Sound molds were modified to create this kit (which made any reissue of the Norton Sound impossible).

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$495

Both decal sheets are perfectly flat, 100% intact and in 'excellent++' condition with slight yellowing as the only flaw. NOTE: while all parts are present, the tiny axles are broken off of the missile trailer and missing. This is unfortunately common with this kit because they are incredibly small and fine. NOTE: the very top of the box displays 'Near Mint++" condition but is only rated 'Excellent++' because there is general wear and scuffing on the two long side panels. Please note that this kit must be shipped insured.

Competition Models Inc Sal Taibi's Starduster 350 - 52 Inch Wingspan Gas Powered Free Flight Model

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$74   

Large wingspan kit for .049 to .051 engines. This is one of the famous Sal Taibi's National award winning designs. Sal was one of the early 'Kings Of Gas Free Flight' and a very gifted designer. Features quality printwood, fully formed wing trailing edges, factory-cut spars and stringers, cut balsa blocks, hardware pack and more. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed clear bag; the other parts have been inventoried complete with the decals and plans. Designed for 'Sniffing Thermals,' the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and powered models (most all driven by Brown engines) took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all in a stable fashion and without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.

Comet Sparky - 32 Inch Wingspan Wakefield-Style Balsa Flying Model Airplane, 3408

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$59   

Rare large flying model and the 1970s reissue of the popular 1930s kit. Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction, quality printwood sheets, factory-cut stringers and spars, hardwood stock, metal stock, fulling formed and finished wheels, fully formed metal propeller shaft/rubber hook, canopy material, covering tissue and detailed full size plans with building instructions/notes. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. These aircraft were common in the 1930s when the sport of free-flight model airplanes reached it's zenith. It was not uncommon for these models to fly for 45 minutes or more on rubber power alone - many flew out of site, and it became common practice to write your name, address and phone number on the covering tissue. 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.
