StromBecker American Airlines Convair Flagship, C-38

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Near Mint

$149   

From the 1950s and with a 10 inch wingspan. This kit and box are in rare, investment-grade 'near mint' condition. Highly prefabricated kit made from solid western pine - not balsa wood. Makes a very impressive display model when built. Includes precut and shaped fuselage, wings, elevators, rudder and nacelles, a bag of detail parts including propellers, wheels, etc, wood filler and glue, sandpaper, detailed instructions and drawings with aircraft history and a large, colorful American Airlines decal sheet. Never started. 100% complete with all parts and plans. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacturer. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - usually only a quick sanding would finish them.

Marx Chris Craft Constellation Motor Yacht, 1/20, 5707

The very large instructions/plans are mint also. Molded with cast metal accessories, metal and brass hardware and classic 1950s turquoise, brown, white, clear and peach colored and chrome plated plastic. Includes the famous Captain, deck chairs and the two 'Bathing Beauties'. Shipping insurance is required for this kit.

Revell Lockheed F-94 Starfire 1st Issue - Pre 'S' One Piece Box, 1/56, H201-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$329   

One of the first three Revell aircraft molds issued in 1953. This kit is correct with no rivets and no landing gear. Instructions are printed on the back of the box. Complete with the unique stand that was only issued with these three kits and the gift set of these kits. This box is in excellent condition, complete with all end flaps and has not been crushed - usually these thin one-piece boxes are in very bad condition. Box has never been repaired. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts/decals and instructions present. Please note that this kit is different from the 'Pre-S' issue in the following ways: no rivet detail, almost no panel lines, different part numbers, pilots are a part of the fuselage (busts only), one piece wings and absence of the pods at the half-wingspan line, no landing gear and no holes for such, very early 'Colortone' logo decals and a silver, two piece plastic stand of a unique design that was not used again.

Revell Moon Ship 'S' Issue, 1/96, H1825-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$295   

Rare 1957 first and only issue. 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 a 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. The box is in 'Very Good++' condition with perfect color and gloss, four solid corners, no tear, rips, holes or fading and no price tag or tape (other than the factory sealing tape of course). There is general wear as shown.. Molded in correct baby blue and clear plastic. This model has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Lindberg Air Force Tank Destroyer P-47 Thunderbolt Motorized, 1/48, 303M-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++

$115   

Still factory sealed. First motorized release from the 1950s/early 60s in a hardbox and classic Ray Gaedke Art. Features motor driven prop, full landing gear, bombs and rocket load-out and extensive cowl checkerboard and invasion white-black stripe decals.

Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.
