Pocher Ferrari Testarossa Spyder (Pocher), 1/8, 192

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$785   

This is the Pocher kit with the Testors/Pocher label. In 1986 Pininfarina created this very special Spider on the basis of the Ferrari Testarossa. By strengthening the chassis, cutting the roof and modifying the trunk the car was given a unique appearance of a very luxury Spider. Very few of this special Testarossa were made. Pocher chose to create this model for it's 25th Anniversary. Although Poacher is no longer in business, they are acknowledged as the finest car model makers ever. This kit features all metal body and body panels that are perfectly factory primed and pre-painted white like the box art. Every detail of the suspension, interior, engine and truck are recreated in this magnificent model. The kit is in 1/8 scale and measures 56 cm (over 22 inches long) when built. The steering works, the doors, hood and trunk open and close, headlights open and retract and much, much more. The body and all body panels are metal - the balance of the kit is metal and injection molded plastic and a number of other materials such as flexible wires for the ignition, clear parts, real rubber tires, etc. The kit has never been started and is complete. Inside, it is like new. The parts that were factory bag sealed are still sealed. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. The painted parts are in perfect condition and well protected with all factory packaging. UNLESS you specify otherwise, this kit will shipped in the original Testors heavy cardboard shipping box. If you wish to have it shipped inside another box, let me know and there will be additional cost for shipping.

Cleveland Great Lakes Trainer - Flying Model Airplane, 1/16, SF-1G

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$110   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. This is the early cardboard box with the silver printing. 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 running single-owner (77 years) model airplane business- 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 'Aviation's 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.

It is still wrapped in the original factory tissue. The box is stamped 'Corvette HT Rally Red Black Int" on the side, which matches this model perfectly. The car is simply stunning - a good 9.5 out of 10 with a 10 being perfect. Color and gloss are fantastic, chrome is like new as well as all tires, parts and clear.

AMT 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Promo With Original Box And Tissue Paper, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$425   

Very, very rare promotional model, especially in this condition and with the original box. The box is stamped "CORVETTE CONV. 1736 SILVER PEARL." This is a one-owner model that was obtained new on November 5, 1965 in Lexington KY. It has never been displayed and has been stored in the original box and tissue since it left the factory. It is 100% complete and original with zero repairs or touch-ups. The paint and chrome are in factory-new condition. There is zero body warp and the clear is in 'mint' condition. I would grade this one 9.5 out of 10 with 10 flawless. The deduction is because there is a closed split (fits back perfectly) at the drivers side vent frame and the A pillar. Nothing is broken off, and the crack closes perfectly (it is invisible), so this is completely repairable; but I'll leave that to the new owner. Even includes the original factory packing paper. The box is complete with all flaps and solid but has wear as shown and age foxing.

Airways Vac Form Vickers VC-10 C1 Plus K2 Tanker Conversion Parts and Plans, 1/72

Includes injection molded struts, molded clear front cockpit windows as well as extensive instructions and plans and a very large decal sheet. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The C1 was the first VC10 version used by the RAF. The following history is from Wikipedia: The first RAF aircraft, designated VC10 C Mk. 1, often abbreviated to VC10 C1, was delivered for testing on 26 November 1965; deliveries to No. 10 Squadron began in December 1966 and ended in August 1968. The VC10s were named after Victoria Cross (VC) medal holders, and were displayed above the forward passenger door. During the 1960s, the VC10s of No. 10 Squadron operated two regular routes, one to the Far East to Singapore and Hong Kong, and the other to New York. By 1970, roughly 10,000 passengers and 730,000 lb of freight were being carried monthly by the VC10 fleet. In addition to the strategic transport role, the VC10 routinely served in the aeromedical evacuation and VIP roles. In the VIP role, the aircraft was commonly used by members of the British Royal family, such as during Elizabeth II's bicentennial tour of America and by several British Prime Ministers. Margaret Thatcher reportedly insisted on flying by VC10. The aircraft proved capable of being flown non-stop by two flight crews, enabling several round-the-world flights. One such VC10 circumnavigated the globe in less than 48 hours.
