KMC Boeing 727-200 American Airlines, 1/72, PA01

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$425   

This is the only 1/72 injection molded 727 kit ever issued. Very large model with gray and clear plastic parts and many high-definition cast resin details. In a discussion with the manufacturer, he told me that the molds for this kit have been destroyed, so no reissue is possible. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions, both in 'excellent+' condition.

Aurora Chinese Junk Famous Fighters of the Sea, 1/68, 430-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$129   

The artwork is copyrighted 1956, but this kit is likely from about 1957 since it has the old 'Famous Fighters of the Sea' logo on the box top and the oval logo with "Famous Fighters" in the border on the two short sides. All parts, decals and instructions are correct for this early issue. Molded in bright orange and black. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals, flag sheet and instructions. Even includes original tissue paper.

Pyro Russian Missile Tracking Fishing Trawler (Spy Ship), 1/96, C247-398

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$125   

Rare early 1960s hardbox issue with dramatic and colorful artwork by AJ Rudisill of the 'trawler' monitoring Polaris SLBM test launches while a SSBN lurks off the starboard side. In the early 1960s the appearance of the Russian 'Fishing Fleet' loaded with sensors to track US Missile tests or fleet communications prompted the Pyro company to issue this kit with a 'Communist Red' molded hull, tan decks and black fittings. Large scale and well detailed for that time, the model measures 17 inches long when assembled. The kit has never been started. All the small parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags; the larger parts were never sealed and inventoried complete. With instructions. Pyro did not include decals with this kit.

Russkit Slot Car Lister Jaguar Superleggera Scratch Builder, 1/32, 1500-800

Metal and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$135   

Rare and even rarer in this condition. The contents of this kit are still factory sealed - the metal, nylon and rubber parts are still sealed in the factory blister display and the box with the car is still factory tape sealed. The Russkit motor box was never factory sealed; however, the motor inside is factory bag sealed and includes detailed instructions. (NOTE: the motor says 'Russkit 34' and not '22' like the box top. I don't know if the 34 replaced the 22, or if Russkit simply packed the wrong motor.) Never started and includes all of the factory packing/display materials. With detailed instructions.

Renwal See-Thru SSBN 618 Thomas Jefferson Polaris Nuclear Submarine, 1/200, 653-349

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$265   

Classic 1950s boxart at it's finest, and this is one the best examples of this kit that I have ever had. The box has like new color and gloss, four solid corners and no tape, price tags or tape/tag marks. It is superb but not mint due to light corner and edge wear as shown. Large 24 inch long kit with clear right half that is hinged to open. The Jefferson is the only Renwal submarine that has the clear hull half - all others have a gray hinged half. The clear half is in incredible 'mint' factory fresh condition. It is not yellowed and still wrapped in the original tissue paper (although I have protected it further for shipping). Heavily detailed interior and actual 'launching' Polaris missile from a spring loaded tube. The kit has never been started. Inside, it is like new. Renwal sealed the majority of the parts in a factory clear bag; that bag is still factory sealed. The few parts that were not sealed have been inventoried complete including 'very good++' decals, excellent instructions and even the Renwal factory inspection slip.

Aurora The Wanderer Whaler - (HO Scale), 1/87, 440-595

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$215   

Rare 1966 hardbox issue of this very large, two feet long (1/87 scale) classic commercial whaler. Well detailed for that time. This was one of a series of large-scale sailing ships made by Aurora to appeal to the serious ship modeler. Molded in correct dark wood, black, tan, ivory and white. Features billowing sails, metal anchor chains, running and standing rigging, molded ratlines and display stand. It has not been started. The parts that were factory sealed are all still factory sealed. Only the white sail parts were never factory sealed, and they have been inventoried complete. Includes all other parts, decals, flag sheet, metal chain, rigging thread and instructions. The Wanderer was built in Mattapoiset, MA in 1878 and was the last sailing whaleship to depart the US on a whaling voyage. She sailed from New Bedford on 24 August 1924 and was driven ashore on Cuttyhunk Island by a gale the next day and became a total loss. (from Joe Greenley)

Sanwa Lockheed C-130B Hercules, 1/205, PA1102-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$155   

Very Rare. Early, colorful issue from the late 1950s. The kit is dated by the 'Sanwa Plastic' logo, which was normally used in the late 1950s up to 1960. Very nicely detailed for that time with fine surface detail, optional 'closed' or 'open' rear dual cargo doors, moving ailerons, rotating props, optional opened or closed crew boarding stairs/door and colorful decals. Molded in gloss silver, black and clear. includes factory glue tube. Inside, the model is factory new - all the parts and decals are still in the factory sealed clear bags. The decals are flat and 'excellent' with slight yellowing as the only flaw and the instructions in 'near mint' condition. Sanwa was one of Japan's earliest post-WWII kit producers, making model kits in the 1950s; some sources say 1955. Kits were marketed under Sanwa and Tokyo Plamo, with the general consensus being the the later logo came out around 1960 or later. Production ended in 1964, making all Sanwa kits rare and collectible. The entire line was extensive. It included very small scale tanks (some that were motorized), battleships in three scales with the larger ones motorized with dual prop drive, slot cars, civil sport boats and an electric outboard, a full line of hand gun models that actually shot plastic bullets, two fighter groups and bomber groups (probably Monogram), several different lines of scale aircraft, missile kits, scale (static) car models of early Japanese automobiles, at least 7 flying model aircraft that had electric and rubber motors, a 'Super Control Stand' P-51 that moved with a joystick and had an electric propeller and sound unit, two different lighthouses and a windmill, an air cushion boat, motor cycles, a diving submarine (electric) and a working (rubber band) George Washington Class SSBN and even a garden tractor with an electric motor. Just before going out of business, Sanwa issued some kits in conjunction with the 1964 Tokyo Olympic games - these kits even included a copy of an Olympic medal.

Sanwa Mosquito MkIV - 'Cellovision' Issue, 1/90, 167

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$155   

Very Rare. Early, colorful issue from the late 1950s. The kit is dated by the 'Sanwa Plastic' logo, which was normally used in the late 1950s up to 1960. Sanwa clearly copied Lindberg in making this a Cellovision-style package; the back has the clear panel still intact as well as a trading card style illustration - even many of the same colors are used. Molded in green, black and clear. Inside, the model is factory new - all the parts and decals are still in the factory sealed clear bags. The decals are flat and 'excellent' with slight yellowing as the only flaw and the instructions are in 'very good' condition. The box has a crush on the lower long side panel and back as shown. Sanwa was one of Japan's earliest post-WWII kit producers, making model kits in the 1950s; some sources say 1955.
