Still factory sealed but the seal is brittle and has numerous splits. This model is one of a very popular and collectible series that Hubley issue in the 1960s or early '70s It is very well detailed with 143 pieces and features highly detailed cast-metal body, chassis, hood, engine and other detail parts with injection molded details, clear parts, and a large tree of chrome plated parts, full rolling chassis build-up just like the real car with excellent engine detail, removable hood, complete exhaust and suspension, working steering, flexible radiator hoses, rubber tires, chrome spoke wheels, working worm-gear steering, full interior detail with very clear thin windshields and special interior side panels. In the 1930s Packard was the style leader in America and a beautiful, fast status symbol. Packards were not the most expensive, but were the most desired cars.

Metal Craft 1913 Stutz Bearcat Sports Car, 1/16, 6492

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$129   

Very rare 1970s multi-media, large-scale model made by Wagner Metal Craft of Japan. Other scale models in the series included the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, Lincoln 1928 Model L Convertible, Rolls-Royce 1931 Phantom II and Duesenberg 1934 Model SJ Town Car. This Bearcat features right around 100 pieces, suspension & axle detail, spoked wheels, rubber tires, detailed interior, clear windshield and more. The box top photo is a photo of the actual model kit assembled. You can paint it for better realism if you wish, but painting is not required as all parts come in the come in the colors shown. The parts are metal and injection molded plastic. There is no engine in this model but the hood can be removed. Underside detail is limited to the suspension & axles as well as what is molded into the underpan. Never started and all of the parts are still on the internal factory sealed colored cardboard blister displays and includes instructions. NOTE: the scale is approximate. The kit measures very close to 10 inches when assembled; I took the length of the actual car as 160 inches; hence the 1/16 scale. So I am anything but certain; so please do your own research and see if you agree with my numbers.

Revell 155mm Long Tom Gun and M-4 High Speed Tractor 'S' Kit, 1/40, H523-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$185   

Rare 1956 first issue. The box is complete and has 'good' color, four original solid corneres, no price tags or tag marks and no tape (other than the factory sealing tape). However, there is a fair amount of even, moderate age foxing on the top and all four sides. Highly detailed set includes both kits - the High Speed Tractor and the Long Tom 155mm gun. Has many working features - the tractor has movable tracks and working bogies, rotating and elevating machine gun, driver and interior details. The gun can be stowed for transport with the M-4 and all extra gear to do this correctly is supplied. The Long Tom features and elevating barrel, moving limbers and detailed mechanism. NOTE: this kit has minor and very neatly done assembly to 8 pieces as described: gun barrel halves assembled and puttied; recoil mechanism halves assembled and puttied; gun carried halves assembled and puttied; two wheels halves assembled. There is no other assembly. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Instructions and decals are both correct and in 'very good++' condition; the only flaw on the decals is typical age yellowing. NOTE: one piece has 'SNAP' engraved on the bottom so that part is clearly from the SNAP issue of this same kit. All other parts look to be Revell, as they are the correct shade of green plastic, correct sheen, part numbers, silver flexible tracks, etc., but there is of course no way to 100% confirm that.

Life-Like Combat Jeep And Trailer - With 3 GIs - (ex Revell), 1/40, 09652

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$125   

Rare model from the original 1950s Revell "S" Issue molds. Very well detailed featuring rotating wheels, radio, jerry cans, detailed chassis and suspension, tilting windshield, driver/soldier and general figure, detachable trailer with rotating wheels, generator, cable reel, packs, tool box and more. Molded in olive drab plastic and with metal axles. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. These molds must have had a very interesting history. The molds were cut in 1955 or 1956, either at Adams or by one of Revell's contractors. It appeared to be part of the Adams/Revell 1/40 line but Adams never issued the kit. UPC (Universal Power Master) had use of these molds in the 1960s are perhaps the early 1970s; however, the molds were probably in Japan as most if not all the UPC production occured there. Things get even more interesting with this Life-Like issue, which must have been after the UPC operation ceased operation. How Life-Like came across the molds is unfortunately unknown but it may have been in a bulk-purchase of molds that were located overseas. This is simply conjecture, however.

Adams USMC Winnie the Whale LVT(A)(4), 1/40, K157-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$135   

Very rare 1958 high-quality model and the original issue from Adams. Features working bogies, flexible tracks, crew of two, four soldiers and more. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The box displays better than the 'very good+' grade but is rated as such because there is a small, narrow litho tear on the left short side. These molds must have had a very interesting history. The molds were cut in the late 1950s, either at Adams or by one of Revell's contractors. It appeared to be part of the Adams/Revell 1/40 line but only Adams issued the kit. UPC (Universal Power Master) had use of these molds in the 1960s are perhaps the early 1970s; however, the molds were probably in Japan as most if not all the UPC production occurred there. Around this point, SNAP plastics of Hillside, New Jersey acquired this kit along with many of the other ex-Adams military molds. While the UPC issues say 'Made in Japan' the SNAP issues say nothing of the origin of the manufacture; so perhaps they were made in New Jersey. Things get even more interesting with the Life-Like issue. How Life-Like came across the molds is unfortunately unknown but it may have been in a bulk-purchase of molds from SNAP since there were in the same general part of the country. This is simply conjecture, however.
