Hawk Messerschmitt Bf-109F - Solid Wood Aircraft Model, 1/48, 79

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$39   

Rare model from 1943 for the advanced collector. Hawk was one of the few manufacturers making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48. However, the company was also innovative as it quickly included injection molded accessories. This model features 3D (three-axis) cut fuselage, profile (2D) cut wings and tail feathers, plastic three blade propeller with the correct large spinner, fully finished wooden wheels, sandpaper, complete water-slide decal sheet, and an amazing full-color 3 view plan with templates, exploded drawing, scale, airfoil sections and more. These plans are in 'Excellent++' condition. There is also a large fold out of text and step-by-step illustrated instructions. Even includes the original factory packing tissue paper. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and paperwork present.

Revell SMS Seeadler With 'S' Glue - German WWI Commerce Raider - (Sea Eagle), 1/232, H382-298

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$220   

Rare 1960 hardbox first issue and ever rarer in this condition. The 'Excellent++' condition box features great framable John Steel artwork. Inside, it even contains a factory-wrapped very colorful metal tube of 'S' glue as well as a history of the Seeadler, a message from Count Luckner, a map of the journey and locations & names of all the ships sunk by the raider. This is a kit of a fantastic subject, the famous WWI sailing commerce raider of Count Felix Von Luckner. It is a very well detailed model for that time and has a full hull, display stand, detailed deck houses and deck fittings, davits and ship's boats, guns, fife rails, preformed rat lines, rigging material, rigging instructions and much more. Molded in gray, brown & black plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and includes the flag sheet and instructions. The SMS Seeadler was a unique WWI raider in that it was not designed to elude the British blockade and break out to sea...it was designed to pass right through the blockade within full view of the British before attacking allied shipping around the world. No detail was overlooked in the Seeadler's preparation, right down to a Norwegian-speaking crew. The plan went perfectly - and the Seeadler passed inspection at the British Blockade. Her non-threatening appearance helped her in an active and colorful raiding career that nearly went around the world. I highly recommend reading any of several books that you can find about this ship. Von Luckner himself became quite a celebrity for his exciting exploits.

Hawk 4 Famous Racing Planes Gee Bee / Ike / R3C-1 (R3C1) / Laird Solution Gift Set, 1/48, 510-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$165   

Rare. From 1956 and this is the true first issue due to the 98 cent price extension on the part number. This gift set featured all four aircraft in the originally-molded vivid colors as well the R3C-1 with landing gear (shortly after this, the molds were modified to make it a floatplane). The Gee Bee is molded in bright gloss red, the Laird Solution in a gloss antique gold, the Ike in bright white and the R3C-1 in brilliant yellow. Inside, everything is just like it left the factory. The kits have not been started. All four are still sealed in the original stapled bags. Includes special one-piece instruction sheet and correct one-piece decal sheet.

Revell Douglas AD-6 Skyraider - AH-1 Navy Attack Aircraft - 'S' Issue, 1/40, H269-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$179   

Very rare original "S" kit from 1959. The box states "So Realistic It Does Everything But Fly!" and that is no idle boast. It is full of action features; the wings fold, dive brakes operate, arresting hook moves, canopy slides to show full cockpit, landing gear retracts and cowling comes off to show fully detailed engine. The most interesting thing is that the landing gear retracts and extends with a very complicated gear system that is operated from a central point. Molded in the correct gloss medium gray and clear plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Decals are in amazing 'near mint' condition with slight yellowing as the only flaw and the instructions are in the same condition also. Please note that the box is solid with 'very good' color and gloss, four perfect corners, no repairs, no price tags or tape (other than the factory sealing tape of course) but it is rated only 'good++' because it has age spotting; a series of small light brown spots on the box top and also on the left short box end.

Anigrand Martin XB-48 - 6 Engine Jet Bomber, 1/72, AA2084

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$120   

Very highly detailed resin kit. The parts are still in the internally sealed bags. Includes decals and instructions. With the success of the German jet bomber Ar.234 in 1944, USAAF became aware of enemy aviation advances. The war department issued a requirement for a new design of jet bomber which was powered by either the J35 or J47 engine. From this, the Martin company submitted the Model 223. It was awarded contract for two prototypes which were then designated XB-48. Other designs which entered the competition included the North American XB-45, Convair XB-46 and the Boeing XB-47. The USAAF needed urgently needed a jet-bomber, so in 1946 they chose the flight-tested B-45 as the winner. Any decision on the XB-47 and XB-48 were deferred until they had tested. The first XB-48 made its maiden flight in 1947 but engine difficulties delayed development and testing. In 1948 the XB-47 was ready for testing and quickly beat the XB-48 in a fly-off; the XB-47 with its swept wing had much better performance. Martin attempted further work on the design, but it was rejected by the Air Force. Flight tests of the XB-48s continued until the program was terminated in the fall of 1949.

Monogram Curtiss P-40B Tiger Shark Test Shot - Bagged, 1/72, PA96

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$36   

This kit came from the collection of one of Monogram's finest and talented Chief Designers, the man who created the original B-52 kit, B-17, B-24J, P-36A, P-39 Airacobra, P-61 Black Widow, DH Mosquito, at least one if not all of the 1/8 scale Ford cars, A-1E Skyraider and numerous other famous kits. In his collection were boxes (usually Four-Star armor that had been damaged on the box-assembly machine) labeled 'TEST SHOTS' and some with his name on it. After designing the model, he was still responsible for the entire program, at least up to the point of mass production. Test Shots were made near the end of the design process for the Chief Designer of that kit to inspect; if something was wrong, he ordered changed. If not, he would clear the kit for production. Test Shots were usually made in whatever plastic was loaded into the silo at the time and in some cases reground plastic (from defects) was even used. This is one of those kits. Ever notice that all Monogram P-40s were molded in olive-drab plastic? Well, not in this case! This test shot is molded with most of the parts in a chocolate brown plastic, some in silver and the few remaining ones in green and clear plastic. This is a pre-first issue. It has never been started. The model is inventoried with all parts and instruction present. The Four Star issue instructions are mint and may have come with the test shot for his approval or they may have been added later. I have included them because they were in the same 'TEST SHOT' box as the kit. As a note, the test shots of the Monogram Four Star Helldiver were molded in silver and clear - clear dive brakes and many other clear parts! Some test shots of the Hawker Hurricane were molded in gloss gray with a little bit of white added so the designer could see exactly how the plastic moved into and filled the cavities.
