Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

First issue of this legendary kit. 1968 model includes realistic 'Jet Sound'.

This kit has been opened inside, but includes all internal packing material with yellow overlay and cellophane and even the factory tissue for the parts under the display. The internal cardboard 'presentation' insert is mint and includes the original Monoglue. Contains 207 parts. Very nicely detailed.

Monogram B-52D Stratofortress, 1/72, PA215

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

First issue from 1968. NOTE: this is a builder kit only - not for collectors. The left fuselage is gray and not green - the green fuselage was damaged and I replace it with a fuselage from the 1970s issue (exact same part-different color plastic). All parts for the Jet Sound are missing - none of them are visible, so the kit can simply be built without it. Kit has been inventoried complete with all other parts. Decals are present but cracking. Instructions are a photocopy from a later issue.

Charmore Lockheed XF-90, 1/90

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Very rare kit for the advanced collector. Charmore was located at 126 Market Street in Paterson New Jersey. They issued a small line of kits in the early 1950s, at the dawn of US plastic kit production. All boxes have the same art - the name of the kit stamped on a side white panel. Inside, the kit has never been started. The contents are mint and complete in the original Charmore paper sacks. The main parts are the correct silver, while the canopy, stand and stand arm are clear. Includes decals and instructions. From toy historians, we know that Charmore was created by the toy giant Louis Marx Company after 1945. Evidently Marx hope to obtain retail buyer-level advantages and tax breaks from the arrangement. The company was named for Louis' brother's (David) wife, Charlene. It has been shown that Charmore and Marx mixed molds and products when it came to toys; however, it seems that the model lines were separate. Please email me if you have more details.

UPC Airship R-100 with Mooring Mast (ex-Frog), 1/500, 5040-500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

Sold   

Still factory sealed but the seal has splits. UPC (Universal Power Master)from quality Frog molds. Rare and excellent kit. Features a large Montreal Mooring Mast and detailed airship with clear engine pods and passenger gondola. The model includes a clever set of metal rods that allows the airship to be displayed 'floating' in mid-air from the mooring mast. R-100 measures about 17 inches long. The R-100 was built by a Vickers Subsidiary. The famous Barnes Wallis worked on her design, which lead to the innovative geodesic airframe used for the Wellington and two other aircraft. The R-100 made a successful Transatlantic flight. Although there were issues, the design was sound. However, the government-built R-101 was not as soundly engineered and crashed on her maiden voyage, forever bringing an end to the Airship in the British Isles. The R-100 was sold for scrap and R-102 was never built. UPC stood for Universal Powermaster Corporation which was based out of New York City, NY. UPC did not cut their own molds, but bought kits already molded from other manufacturers and re-boxed the kits in the USA. Scott Eidson, the famous artist best known for his artwork with Revell, also did almost all the UPC box art in the 1960s, but this kit is unusual in that it kept the Frog Green series artwork. All UPC production ended in the 1970s.
