ITC Halibut SSGN 587 Electric Powered Diving Motorized Submarine (Regulus Sub), 1/175, 3660-998

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

This model is the zenith of the ITC Design and Engineering Team, and maybe of all operational plastic model kits. This kit is not only rare but is considered the most complicated operating model ever produced. The large 24.75 inch long model sails from the power of a large electric motor driving twin geared propellers. It changes direction, dives, surfaces, and a Regulus II missile comes out of the hanger and launches...all automatically. The engineering on this kit is fantastic and was a major break-through in it's day (about 1960). The high price and difficulties that youngsters had with assembly/operation made for a short production run. The model worked, and did work well, but was certainly not a toy for inexperienced model builders. This kit is unusual in that it did not have the common 'Seen on TV Maverick' sticker on the box top. Inside, the kit is in mint condition. All plastic parts except the main hull 1/2s are still sealed in the factory bags (the hull halves were never sealed). The blue display cardboard is all complete and in excellent condition. The plastic parts bags are still factory stapled to the Instructions and stickers are near mint and still white. NOTE: The box is only fair. The very top of the box displays VG++, but one side corner is missing a 2 inch section; another side corner is missing a 4 inch section.

Airmodel Mig-21 E-8A Prototype - Bagged, 1/72, AM-099

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

The Mig-21F was a successful warplane, but it suffered from short range, weak armament and electronics and poor dogfight maneuverability. Mikoyan OKB attempted to improve the F with two prototypes - the E-8A and E-7. The E-7 was similar to the existing Mig-21, but the E-8A was radically different and was intended to solve all the shortcomings of the existing "F" variant. The result was a beautiful aircraft. The central air intake freed up the nose for electronics, while the lower fuselage allowed more internal fuel storage. Forward canards were to add to the dog fighting maneuverability. Why the E-8 did not work or was not built is not known. Very nicely done multimedia kit. The model contains resin parts and basic vac airframe parts. The vac parts are excellent and are better than many injection molded kits. Resin parts include struts, wheels, nose gear and wheel, seat, cockpit, gear doors, canards and many other misc parts. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.
