Pyro 1911 Packard Model 30 Touring Car - Bagged, 1/32, C457

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box


Bagged kit - no box. The box is shown for reference only. 1967 Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. This Pyro car model is based on the Model 30 that was on display in the Auto Aviation Museum in Cleveland, Ohio that Pyro engineers and designers had access to.

Monogram United States Earth Satellites Vanguard and Jupiter C with Launching Pad and Crew, 1/96, PD41-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Very rare. First and only issue from 1958 with box art by R. Price. Very nicely detailed and molded in silver, gray and white plastic. Features missiles, launching pad with railings, ladders and crew of four. Never started. Decals are in excellent condition with a tiny bit of yellowing as the only flaw. Instructions are excellent also with very slight yellowing. Inventoried complete with all parts, Monogram Missile Models insert sheet and small Monogram catalog. Shipping insurance is required on this kit. It's interesting to speculate on how this kit became one of the rarest 1950s Monogram kits. Although Monogram and Revell found that missile kits sold very well initially, the interest fell off rapidly. Even the molds for such a simple kit would have cost $20,000 to $30,000 in 1958 US Dollars - so obviously the kit did not sell well or it would have been continued. The main reason is probably that this kit is a very late Monogram missile, and was issued when interest was already waning. Whereas other missile kits (Missile Arsenal) were reworked and re-released, the Earth Satellites never were and are seen much less often than the Rascal and Regulus II.
