West Side Model Co Brass HOn3 Class "A" Climax Horizontal Boiler Locomotive Nakamura Seimjitsu KK, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$179   

Beautiful, like-new condition brass narrow gauge locomotive, hand-built in Japan by the renown Nakamura Seimisu K.K. (marketed in the USA as Westside Models). It is still wrapped in the original plastic and all three pieces of the factory foam are intact and in excellent condition. This one-owner model has always been carefully stored in the original box. There is the slightest bit of wheel wear at 14x magnification, so it appears it was test run at one point but nothing more. I see no broken parts and no modifications; it looks factory-new. However, most of these came with a small firebox cover for the inside of the cab; this one does not have one. I have no narrow gauge track, so I am unable to test the locomotive, so it is sold "As Is." There is no paperwork present.

Lincoln Bristol Sycamore Helicopter, 1/64, 110

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good++

$52   

Still factory sealed but the seal has shrunk and exposed the box ends. Nicely molded, larger scale model from the late 1950s or early 1960s. Lincoln was based in Hong Kong. Plastic kits were not the primary business, but they established quite a line of them before discontinuing production in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Many molds moved to Kader, also in Hong Kong, who reissued the line. Many molds eventually found their way to the USA either through ATP (who purchased the excess kit stock when Kader sold out) or IM.

Rogers Motor Company Studebaker M-29 C Weasel - Army Personnel and Cargo Carrier, 1/12, 29C

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$125   

Rare, large 1/12 scale highly pre-fabricated kit from 1945. Very high quality wood and metal scale Weasel measuring 10.5 inches long when assembled. Features pre-cut and precarved hardwood parts for the main body and deck fittings, completely formed bogie wheels, die-cut fibre bogie chassis, numerous other very thick fibre parts, metal screen and metal stock as needed, complete interior, numerous other die cut parts, completely formed tread links, clear windshield, full decals and much more. Rogers spent a significant amount of time on the 'Photo-Plan' instructions, providing photos for each step and detailed text, full size plans and parts list. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed paper bags. The other parts have been inventoried as good as possible and appears complete with all parts, decals and full instructions with plans. There are no part numbers and assembly is by the plans; so inventory is very difficult at best. Rogers was an early producer of miniature gas engines for free-flight and early radio control model kits and often had large adds for these engines in hobby magazines. The full company name on the box is listed as 'Rogers Motor Company Detroit Michigan' and the 'Scale Model Division' is listed as Tawas City, Michigan. Right at the end of WWII, Rogers made a very short journey into kit manufacturing. As you would expect from an engine manufacturer, the kits were all true scale, highly prefabricated, had excellent detail and were fairly complicated. Rogers produced at least four kits - the 40MM AA Gun and Carriage (1/16 scale), Army Weasel, LST and an amazing, huge scale Sherman M4 tank with over 780 parts. These kits were likely produced in that order, with the LST being released around late 1945/early 1946. I have seen several of these kits built and they make excellent displays. And thanks to kit builder and collector Fran Fierko for some new and important kit history! Fran was able to track down the son of the designer of the five Rogers kits. Mr. John Hoenle Jr. was a master model builder who received a deferment from the draft in WWI to build recognition models for the military- some of which may still be on display at Wright-patterson AFB in Ohio. Mr. Hoenle is believed to have designed one other early kit, a civilian Chris Craft cabin cruiser. It is unknown if this kit was issued or not. Mr. Hoenle left Rogers to design promo models for Jo-Han, which is famous for their 1950s line of car kits.
