Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

Sold   

1983 issue. Excellent kit featuring full interior, landing gear, gear well and bomb bay detailing, rotating props, turrets, wheels, pivoting nose wheel, bomb load, optional waist gun covers, optional position bomb doors, boarding ladder and crew of four.

Also, the box looks better than the grade but is rated as such because there is serious damage to the left short side in addition to the stain shown at the left side of the photo.

Mania TWO B5N2 Kate Torpedo Bombers / THREE Ki-27 Nates / TWO Ki-15 Babs, 1/72, CA-4001

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

SALE!! Includes all 7 kits in the boxes shown. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But on these kits he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: on 5 of the kits, he built minor sub assemblies (cockpit tubs, wing halves, etc) to 'professional' quality. On two of the kits, he did 70 to 80% assembly to 'professional' quality. He also almost always removed the displays stands (if provided). Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price.

Testors Waco CG-4A Assault Glider or British Hadrian - USAAF Normandie Invasion 1944 / USAAF Sicilia 1943 / RAF, 1/72, 863

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Well detailed and finely molded featuring complete cockpit and full interior including troop benches. The Waco CG-4 was designed and initially built by Waco Aircraft Company of Troy, OH. It first saw action in Sicily and the operation was termed a disaster. This likely had more to do with planning than the actual glider. Missions in Europe, including D-Day, went much better. The glider was even deployed to Burma. It could carry up to 13 troops, or a jeep and four men, or a 75mm Field Gun.

Monogram A-7 Corsair II - VA-72 USS Kennedy - White Box Issue, 1/48, 5418

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

1979 issue of this quality kit featuring full cockpit, wheel well detail, optional position canopy and a large load of external stores with drop tanks, AIM-9 Sidewinders and iron bombs. Decals for VA-72 USS John F Kennedy. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. This kit has a very interesting history. Aurora originally cut the molds just a few years before they shut down. The A-7 was an excellent kit for that time as Aurora did everything they could to make it so. It features all recessed panel lines, realistic retractable landing gear with opening and closing doors, rotating wheels, good cockpit and a huge loadout of iron bombs, Sidewinder missiles and drop tanks. The molds were sold in 1977 to Monogram, and the A-7 molds survived the train accident on the way to Chicago. Monogram only reissued the finest Aurora kits; however, to meet Monogram standards, they often received significant upgrades, like the 737, DC-10 and 747 did. However, the A-7 upgrade was so extensive that it is a challenge to tell if it came from Aurora or not. For years I read that it did, but the differences are so significant that I wanted to compare them side-by-side. I finally got that chance. My conclusion is that this certainly is the old Aurora kit, but it has been modified so extensively that it may be the largest, most comprehensive mold rework ever done in the history of plastic modeling. First, it is from the Aurora molds because of the identical parts tree layout for the trees and parts that Monogram did keep - down to the millimeter, right down to the part number tabs. Also, the dimensions of the wings, horizontal stabs and most other major parts are identical along with many other smaller clues. But the amazing things are the changes. This is not a complete list, but Monogram did the following- on the fuselage halves they made the nose slightly longer (2MM) and wider; added the cockpit cowl, moved the front landing gear bay forward by 5mm, added the main wheel bays to the fuselage parts and removed all surface detail, replacing it with fine raised details. Antennas and lights were modified or added, as well as refueling probe storage. The wings were lengthened by 2mm each; while the recessed lower control surface lines were replace, the rest of the surface detail was redone complete. The horizontal stabilizers were reworked for surface detail and in doing so, they removed the reinforcement plates at the hinges; you can still see the tooling marks from this removal. The retractable landing gear was eliminated. The main gear struts were simply given strut detail, while the nose strut is almost completely new. The landing gear doors were almost left intact, but the tabs (for retraction) were removed and interior detail was added. The cockpit is completely new. The bomb loadout and ejector racks are almost the same, but the racks received new surface detail. The AIM-9s are almost completely Aurora - all Monogram did was remove the mounting tab. You can still see the original ejector pin marks, tree layout and even the same part number tab. There are many more changes, but this gives you a good idea of the trouble that Monogram went to in making accurate models.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++

Sold   

Still factory sealed and has small circular splits on the lower long side. Dated 1969 and this is the issue with the record offer inside, so it is slightly later.

Hawk T-6 Texan Trainer - Picture Gallery Issue, 1/72, 610-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

1950s hard-to-find 'Picture Gallery' hardbox issue with unique artwork. Bill Campbell told me that he replaced this artist 'in an emergency' and that is how he got the job to do the Hawk box art for so many years. Very nicely molded in silver plastic with a clear green-tinted windshield and instructions and decals that are correct for this early release. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The box looks better than the 'Good+' grade but is given that rating due to a very light stain on the lower right of the box top.

Cleveland Douglas SBD-3 Dauntless - Balsa Flying Aircraft - (SBD3), 1/16, SF-89

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models and is in exceptional condition. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material, highest quality plans, all parts required for assembly and decals (if issued with the kit). The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The Cleveland Model and Supply Company played a pivotal role in the development of true scale models. In 1909 Bleriot's English Channel flight caused a surge in aviation and model aircraft around the globe. Several companies were ideally positioned to take advantage of the aviation craze. In the USA, Wading River Manufacturing Co. (1909), White Aeroplane (1911), Ideal Model Aeroplane (1911), Broadfield Model Aeroplanes (1919) were among these pioneers, offering everything from plans and parts to complete kits and ARF models. Lindbergh's 1927 crossing of the Atlantic Ocean caused an even bigger world-wide phenomenon called 'The Aviation Craze' that extended up to the start of World War II. Many companies such as Megow, Guillow's and others started right around the time of Lindbergh's flight. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - were generally not accurate scale representations. In 1929, a youngster named Ed Packard had a very advanced dream to produce incredibly accurate, true scale models that flew perfectly. This radical idea established the world's longest operating single-owner model airplane supply business, called Cleveland Model and Supply Company. To this day, Cleveland models are treasured as the most accurate flying scale models produced. The fact that Mr. Packard started and successfully grew this business during The Great Depression is a testament to his ideals and business skill. I highly suggest the excellent book called 'Aviations great Recruiter, Cleveland's Ed Packard' by H.L. (Herm) Schreiner. It is an excellent history of the man, his company and the times of the Golden Age of Model Aviation.
