MPC The Christie American Steam Fire Engine, 1/12, 1-2002

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$175   

Still factory sealed. The Christie was the backbone of the American fire-fighting force prior to World War 1 - she was in service in just about every major city. Walter Christie, the designer, was a noted race car driver and the father of front wheel drive technology. This fire engine is actually a development of his turn of the century horse drawn steam pumpers. This model was developed from a fully restored Christie redone by Community Fire company No.1 of Wayne, NJ. This is a highly detailed model which is 1/12 scale and is over 19 inches long when assembled. Features display stand, moldings in red, black, grey and clear, brass and nickel plated parts, decals for all stripes and letting, over 330 parts, decals and full instructions.

AMT Big Foot (Bigfoot) Figure Kit, 1/7, 7701

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$79   

Rare. The first and only release of AMT's 'Bigfoot' did not show the creature in a very friendly light, which may have lead to it's early demise. The kit builds to a large, impressive figure standing over a pool of water among broken trees. Bigfoot has just finished a meal consisting of Homo Sapiens, as evidenced the femur, skull and rib cage. Bigfoot is molded in brown, while the pond and human parts are molded in glowing plastic. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Otaki Dornier Do-X Flying Boat - (DoX), 1/144, OT2-17-1500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$95   

Very nicely molded and detailed. Kit has over 110 parts and a 13 inch wingspan. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Famous German Flying Boat built in 1929. Dornier dreamed that this huge aircraft would become a trans-oceanic airliner with passengers traveling in oceanliner-like luxury. A tour of South and North America was conducted, but orders never materialized due to excessive fuel consumption and a lack of power. Total load was 170 passengers and crew, and the 12 engines developed 7200 HP.

Revell Douglas DC-7 Pan Am Airport Scene - 'S' Kit with Boarding Ramp / Stanchions / Gasoline Truck & Trailer / Tractor with 3 Baggage Carts / Aircraft Tractor and 7 Figures, 1/122, H257

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$2200   

Very, very rare, complete and 100% correct. The Pan Am Airport Scene was commissioned by Pan Am in the late 1950s and only sold through the airline, not through Revell distributors. This has made it one of the rarest Revell kits in existence. It is widely considered an 'S' kit since it was made at that time and features that style of artwork, but the box never had the yellow 'S' anywhere on it. It contains all the parts and markings listed in the title and makes an incredible airport diorama. The box has excellent color and gloss with no tears or stains. Three corners are solid - the other has been repaired very neatly with clear tape. There is general wear as shown but no other damage. Inside, the parts are as new. All pieces are in the correct gloss silver plastic with the clear Revell 'Swivel Base Display Stand.' The airport accessories are still sealed in the original factory bag, including the metal axles. The unique decal sheet for this special issue is intact, never cut and in 'good' condition. It contains Pan Am DC-7 decals and markings for the ground equipment. The decals are flat but have some yellowing and two creases. On the back they have the correct Revell markings and part number to be original for this model. The instructions are 100% correct and original for this model. They are in 'very good+' condition with the usual yellowing, two very small thin spots and one very light stain. In all, an excellent investment piece that has never been started with the airport parts bag sealed and otherwise inventoried complete with the correct decals and instructions. Please note that Revell did NOT issue this kit with paper 'carpet' like the United Airlines Flight 707 Airport Scene. The 'carpet' has been intentionally de-listed from the area of the box that describes the contents and has been removed from the instructions as well. Although this kit does not have an 'S' on it, I have included it as an 'S' kit since it is from that time frame and shares the common box art theme.

H&F Model Airplane Co The Bee - 48 inch Wingspan Free Flight or R/C

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$89   

H&F was out of Brooklyn, NY in the 1930/40s. Rare 1930s free flight model for B Class Competition. Since this model is super-stable, it would make an ideal conversion to RC. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started - it even includes 1930s style low profile wheels/tires. Complete with all parts, plans and decals (if originally included). 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 early gas powered models, all powered 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 without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.

Air Lines Airspeed Oxford Trainer - (ex-Frog), 1/72, 7906

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$28   

Well molded kit features separate ailerons, rudder and elevators. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

Note that this issue still has 'Craft Master' under the MPC logo. Before this, MPC was marketing Airfix kits under the Craftmaster name in the USA. This continued for several issues and was finally discontinued although MPC continued to distribute Airfix and their own models.

MPC Mikoyan Mig-15 - with Ground Crew, 1/72, 2-2102
