Renwal CV-16 USS Lexington Aircraft Carrier with Regulus Missiles, 1/500, 607

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc


Still factory sealed. Far and away the most accurate injection molded kit of this ship. The USS Lexington took part in many WWII battles in the Pacific. She was placed in the reserve fleet, but was modified into an angle-deck Essex like many of her sisters and recommissioned in 1955. This configuration is modeled upon the ship in late 1950s. Like all Renwal ships, the details are excellent and the moldings very fine. Includes Regulus I missiles and launchers, moving elevators, full hull, flag sheet, full color decals and an airwing with F9F-8 Cougars (wings folded and unfolded), A3D Skywarriors and Helicopters.

Revell Moon Ship - (XSL-01) 'S' Issue, 1/96, H1825-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint


Rare 1957 first and only issue in investment grade condition. When sales of the dramatic XSL-01 Moon Rocket did not meet expectations, Revell molded the top stage in a different color plastic from the XSL-01, added a special 3D Moon Base Stand and boxed it as a stand-alone kit. The result was this Moon Ship with incredible box art. The box art invites you to 'Enter the Age of Space' with these action features: retractable landing ski, removable fuselage section with detailed cabin with controls and instrument panels and a crew of three astronauts. The box is in 'Mint' condition. The color and gloss are perfect. The box looks as if it was just removed from the original shipping box. Molded in correct baby blue plastic. This model has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Other than very slight yellowing, the instructions and decals are mint also.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Big 'A' logo issue dated 1972. In the late 1960s/early 1970s, Aurora realized that it needed to produce new and better kits if they were to stay in business. Several helicopters, aircraft and ships were released with markedly improved mold quality from the older kits. The UH-1 is one of those kits. Very nicely molded and detailed. Features full cockpit and interior, positionable pilot and copilot figures, two positionable crew members, optional position crew doors, detailed rotor head, small or large rocket loadout, machine guns and US Army Vietnam-era decals.

Strombecker Convair XF2Y (Yf2Y-1) Navy Sea Dart Supersonic Float Plane - With Rivet Detail - (XF2Y1), 1/60, D25-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


From the 1950s. Nicely done kit for the time. Molded in dark blue plastic. The limited first issue is the same part number and in the same box but has no rivet detail on the aircraft. The second issue (this one) does have rivet detail. Never started. NOTE: missing decals. Otherwise inventoried with all parts and instructions. Strombecker was very well known for producing the finest pre-carved hardwood aircraft and missile kits, but they had a very short journey into the plastic model field. After making the Sea Dart kit in 1956, they added four more for a total of 5 injection molded aircraft kits. All were discontinued in the mid 1960s. The Sea Dart was a supersonic design that could take off and land from water using retractable hydro-skis. Five prototypes were built and over 300 test flights made. The advent of the super carrier spelled the end of the Sea Dart, although 4 still exist on display today.
