Revell Avro Lancaster Dam Buster, 1/72, H202

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Dated 1971 with dramatic softbox artwork. The Dam Busters squadron was famous for its daring raids on three German dams on May 16, 1943. Carrying the special Barnes Wallis-designed bombs, the Lancasters flew very low over the water in the face of heavy flak to drop the rotating bombs perfectly. Many did not return. The bombs did perform as promised, first skipping over the water, hitting the dam, then rolling down 30 feet before exploding with tremendous force. In an airburst, these bombs would not have damaged the dams, but since water is incompressible, the dams were breached. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Monogram E-Power Electronic Power Module (Superstar Free Flight Aircraft), 7593

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

The "E-Power Module" was derived from the historic and famous "Superstar" electric free-flight aircraft. In it's own way, the Superstar was the forerunner of today's electric Radio Controlled revolution that has bought RC to thousands of people. It all began in about 1971when Mattel introduced the Superstar "The Plane With A Brain". The Superstar was not the first electric powered larger-scale free-flight aircraft, but it was perhaps the first mass-marketed electric ni-cad powered model. Unlike the Mattel "Dareplane" tethered flier which was discontinued shortly after introduction, the Superstar generally worked well for young children who had parental supervision. Made of foam and colorful vacuformed plastic, the Superstar contained an electric motor, two small ni-cad batteries (from Sizzler electric racers), and a "brain". The "brain" was a motor driven cam to which the youngster could attach different cams. When the prop turned, the cam would rotate and engage a wire which moved the rudder. In this way, the Superstar could fly figure 8s, circles, squares or go straight. The system worked very well. When the Superstar would become trapped in a thermal, the prop would continue to turn, causing the aircraft to perform the proper maneuver again and again, until it had gradually flow too high to be seen! In 1975, the Mattel/Monogram combination decided to market a slightly modified version (no cam drive and a shorter drive shaft) of the Superstar powerplant as this E-Power Module. From the back of the box - "The Monogram E-Power module is a self-contained electric power unit with a high torque motor, 3.27:1 gear ratio and two GE nickel cadmium rechargeable batteries. It is ready to mount in any suitable airframe...The module weighs 70 grams (2.47 oz) and is comparable in power to a .020 gas engine. Flying model kits with a wing area of 100 to 150 square inches and a weight of 100 to 200 grams (3.5 to 7 oz) are adaptable to the E-Power...the propeller has a diameter of 7.25" and a high efficiency 4.3" pitch. Full specifications and instructions for mounting are included. It has never been used. This E-Power comes in a box that is still factory sealed. It includes a "Superstar" prop, the complete power module with motor, gearbox and batteries, and instructions.

Renwal USS Compass Island Experimental Ballistic Navigational Ship, 1/500, S606-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very rare. In the 1950s, the US Navy began a program called the "Fleet Ballistic Missile". Since missiles of the day had short range, it made sense to sail Navy ship within range and fire missiles from then. Nothing had ever been done like this before, so a special research ship was converted from a "Mariner" class cargo vessel. The USS Compass Island was the US Navy's experimental forerunner of ballistic missile-launching vessels. She was commissioned at the New York naval Shipyard on December 3, 1956. Displacing 17,000 tons, the Compass Island was designed to assist in the development of SINS, or the Ship Inertial Navigational System. Missiles can only hit targets if they know exactly where they were launched from. This early system was a distant relative of GPS, the Global Positioning System. The ship carried the usual crew in addition to many scientists. She was equipped with Regulus I missiles for testing as well as many other instruments from research on navigation done at the Instrumentation Laboratory and MIT. The Compass Island was also equipped with the Sperry Gyroscope Company's new Gyrofin Ship Stabilizer. These are included in the model and move as the real ones did to keep the Compass Island from rolling. Each fin provided 3,000 foot-tons of lift and reduced this motion by 90%. This kit is highly detailed, very finely molded and includes the Regulus I missiles and launcher. The kit has not been started and has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: Although the kit is complete, there are several broken parts. Here is the list: small anti-aircraft guns - several broken barrels and broken base on one (all included). 2 Kingpost/Booms and Crane - broken booms (included). Lifeboat cabins - broken but all parts included. Helicopter - 1 main rotor broken and tail rotor (all parts included). Hull - chip at bow and stern (see photo). The parts are included for the hull, but there are many chips. It would be easier to simply putty the chips in.
