Maircraft Curtiss Hawk P-6E - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, S15

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$26   

Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work. This kit features a full size plan with instructions steps, all hardwood parts (very unusual; normally they were balsa), full color insignia sheet, 3D cut fuselage, profile cut wings and tail feathers, printwood and a small bag of sealed details. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including insignia and plans/instructions.

Bergs Bergs Humming Bird Helicopter - Flyes / Glides / Circles

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$59   

Rare flying toy, most likely from the late 1940s or the the early 1950s. The original price was $3.00, which made it very expensive for that time. Berg's Humming Bird was made in "Allied Western Germany" and distributed by Josef Seidel of 878 Broadway, NY 3, NY. This is a flying helicopter that is completely prefabricated and consists of a very lightweight metle body with rubber wheels, a large completely-assembled rotor assembly with metal rotor head and frames with the blades covered in silver doped tissue, a heavy launching rod with a metal threaded rod and coupler and wooden handle painted red. The Instructions are present and it is a simple matter of placing the rotor assembly into the body, then putting the launching device underneath where it engages the rotor head. Then a quick pull on the upper handle sets the rotors spinning and up she goes! The model is 100% complete with all parts and illustrated instructions. Judging from the condition, it has never been flown.

Revell Santa Maria Columbus Ship - With Sails, 1/89, H336-300

Inventoried with all parts, decals, colorful flag sheet, sails and instructions present. NOTE: the instructions have minor bug damage. The sails are only 'fair' with cracks and some damage. The box top displays nicely but the lower box (the 'tray') is poor and taped up significantly.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$164   

Rare one-and-only 1960 issue that contains both the DH-4 and Curtis JN-4 Jenny. Aurora really went out of the way to make this a special kit; however, it did not sell well and was retired after one year.

Revell Convair Atlas - America's First Intercontinental Ballistic Missile - 'S' Issue, 1/110, H1822-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$580   

Dated 1960. Very rare ICBM and the first and only issue of this incredibly well detailed Revell 'S' kit. The molds were altered to make the Mercury Atlas kit, so reissues are impossible. The box grades 'Excellent' with wonderful color and gloss, four solid corners, no price tags or tag marks, no tape and no tape marks (other than the factory sealing tape, of course). The box has general wear as shown. The kit features elevating missile support arms and hinged break-away supports, complete launching base, ramp and pad, missile truck and trailer that elevates 90 degrees to load missile and crew. Molded in correct white, gray and yellow. Inside, it has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The decals are 100% intact, flat and in 'excellent' condition with typical light yellowing; the instructions are in 'very good' condition. Shipping insurance is required for this kit. From my friend Stephen Payne, Major, USAF (Ret): The launch pad in both kits used Launch Complex - 14 (also known as Space Launch Complex-14 or "Slic-14") as their example. LC-14 was part of what was known as ICBM Row at Cape Canaveral and originally used to test the Atlas ICBM prior to being converted for the Mercury Space Program (starting with John Glenn's orbital mission). The yellow & white trailers seen here were the gaseous nitrogen tube bank trailers. The nitrogen trailer in both Atlas kits came from the accessories associated with the Revell Thor kit. Having spent 5 years working at the Cape, I passed this site numerous times. Unfortunately, time & the elements have resulted in the removal of all remnants of SLC-14. Only the memorial (with the associated time capsule) remains.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$295   

From 1956 - the first and only issue of this rare holiday season gift set. Contains the A-4D Skyhawk and HRS-1 both with US Marine markings. The box has excellent color and gloss, four solid corners and no tape, price tags, torn or missing litho. However, it has the typical 'cross hatch' marks from the original ribbon that Revell shipped these kits with as well as heavy ribbon marks along the top as shown; there is also moderate wear on the top long side. Inside, the HRS-1 is molded in the correct dark blue plastic and the famous clear Revell base and correct Marines decals for this this issue. The A-4 is molded in the correct medium gray with the clear base and correct and colorful Marines markings for this kit. The instructions are correct also and show these unique decals on the models.

Aurora Boeing KC-135 Jet Stratotanker, 1/125, 143-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$69   

1974 Aurora of Canada issue from ex-Comet molds. This is the largest of the two Comet molds and has clear cockpit & cabin windows and full landing gear. Molded in gloss silver and clear. This model was given a clear Aurora two piece 'triangle world' stand, unlike many of the other Comet kits which only had a modified version of their original stands included. Of course this is not the production KC-135 but a model of the Boeing prototype. Just like the box art, it does not have a 'tanker' rear end or boom. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the box displays better than 'good' but it graded as such because the two scuffs on the right wing are actually closed holes in the box top.
