The early issue from the late 1950s or early 1960s. Classic motorized kit with over 100 moving parts. All internal cardboard and cello display packing is present. When built, all major internal parts move via electric motor and spark plugs (red lights) flash in time. This kit has never been started. The small metal parts and hardware are still factory sealed. I did a complete inventory on all clear, red, black and metallic colored parts and they are complete. Does include the very rare Renwal plastic cement. Please NOTE that the box only grades as 'Poor++.' The very top of the box (shown) is intact, but the rest of the box was in about 8 pieces and is neatly taped together with clear tape. Three sides panels are complete, but the right short one is missing (2) 2" long sections on the far left and far right; they have been replaced with white cardboard. The box bottom is complete but also taped together. Summary: the actual kit is excellent but the box is not in collectible condition.

Renwal Skysweeper 75mm Anti-Aircraft Gun - M51 (D48), 1/32, M552-169

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$139   

First issue from the 1950s of this fantastic Cold War kit with 134 parts. It is very highly detailed and features almost all the moving features of the real weapon. NOTE: this kit has minor 'near mint' quality subassembly as follows: Step 1 (4 gun pieces and 8 carriage pieces) and the periscope (4 total pieces) are assembled. The main gun is not glued to the carriage assembly. There is no other assembly Inventoried and the actual gun itself is complete but NOTE: missing five figures. Otherwise includes all other parts, decals and instructions present. The Skysweeper was a 45 round-per-minute anti-aircraft gun system that was teamed with the Nike Ajax in the late 1950s/early 1960s to defend America against Soviet Attack. The gun system was radar controlled and fully mobile. It could be set up on any terrain and ready to fire in 2 minutes. The unit was considered very advanced and complex at the time; it took army maintenance crews 37 weeks each to train on the system at Aberdeen.

Renwal M-50 Ontos - The Thing With The Sting, 1/32, M557-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$48   

Rare 1950s original issue; not a common reissue. Fantastic first issue 'Blueprint' hardbox artwork and a highly detailed kit featuring 11 parts, combat crew of three, working treads, some interior detail, opening hatches and covers and more. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Ontos was a unique vehicle. Ontos is a Greek word for 'The Thing' and the vehicles lives up to that. Developed along a new concept in mobile warfare, the Ontos has little defense other than movement but a very powerful offensive punch. It carries six 106mm recoilless rifles and .50 caliber spotting rifles. The firing sequence went like this: the crew of three would get out and hand-load the six large guns. Then the Ontos would quickly move towards the target. Once sited, the gunner would fire the .50 caliber spotting rifle. This gun fired a different cartridge, a special low velocity round that matched the trajectory of the 106mm. The spotting round was very accurate and made a visible flash on striking the target. Then he could fire a full salvo of 6 or in steps of two. The 8.5 ton vehicle would then speed away, moving to a safe location to reload.

Renwal USS Lexington Angled Deck Aircraft Carrier - CV-16 With Regulus Guided Missiles, 1/500, S607-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$185   

Hardbox issue from the late 1950s. This is far and away the most accurate injection molded kit of this ship in the Post-WWII early angled deck configuration. The USS Lexington took part in many WWII battles in the Pacific. She was placed in the reserve fleet, but was then modified into an angle-deck Essex like many of her sisters and recommissioned in 1955. This configuration is modeled upon the ship in late 1950s. Like all Renwal ships, the details are excellent and the moldings very fine. Includes Regulus I missiles and launchers, moving elevators, full hull, flag sheet, full color decals and an air wing with F9F-8 Cougars (wings folded and unfolded), A3D Skywarriors and Helicopters. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: one helicopter rotor blade is broken off but present for repair. A few horizontal stabilizer fins are broken off the F9F-8 Cougars but are also present for repair.

Renwal Atomic Cannon - M65 280mm with M249 and M250 50 Ton Heavy Gun Lifting Trucks / Transporters, 1/32, 553

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$345   

Very rare original issue and extremely hard-to-find in factory sealed condition. This is the late 1950s issue and not the common modern reissue. The box top says 'Fully Operating Model Does Everything But Fire' and it is true. The model consists of over 300 parts and has many action features typical of Renwal models. The wheels roll, tractors can be hooked to the cannon which can be stowed in the 'travel' position. The gun can move into the 'fire' position off the tractors and can be realistically trained.
