Revell A3J (A-5A) Vigilante Bomber - 'S' Issue, 1/83, H196-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$179   

This was the last "S" kit issued by Revell. Hardbox is dated 1959 and has fantastic gloss and color. All four corners are solid and original. There are no price tags and no tape beyond the short pieces of factory tape on the long sides which attached the box top and bottom together. The box would be mint but it has two creases from the right corners as shown. Kit features opening tandem canopies, moving control surfaces, detailed, removable jet engines and two pilots. As the last "S" kit, this kit also incorporated a critical improvement for the time that would become standard only recently: all recessed detail. The entire kit has recessed panel lines and rivet detail-no raised marks. It has an attention to detail that is lacking in many older Pre-S and S kits. Molded in the correct gloss light gray and clear with the "Globe" clear stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are flat and 'excellent.'

Pyro IJN Musashi Battleship - Table Top Navy, 1/1200, C392-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$25   

Small scale ship kit from the Table Top Navy series. Very nicely done kits for their time. Can be built full hull or waterline. Features propeller and shaft detail, separately molded turrets, stacks, many superstructure parts and more. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. Many of the Pyro kits came from Eagle (then Eaglewall) molds in England. Eaglewall went out of business around 1962 and Pyro acquired at least some of the molds. Pyro reissued some of these kits in the mid 1960s with AJ Rudisill artwork. Evidently the line was successful, as Pyro then cut some of their own molds and expanded the series significantly. The earlier issues have the full color artwork and a three digit part number. Later issues have a 'B' or 'C' in front of the three digit kit number; some have simplified box art that is a modification of the original Rudisill paintings by painting out most of the background. Pyro issued these kits into the late 1960 when Life-Like took over the molds. Some were reissued by Life-Like.

Pyro 1912 Packard Model 30 Touring Car, 1/32, C457-125

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$42   

Still factory sealed. 1967 Pyro 'Vintage Brass Car' issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of the kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. This Pyro car model is based on the Model 30 that was on display in the Auto Aviation Museum in Cleveland, Ohio that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. The model includes rubber tires, brass plated parts, colored injection molded parts and clear parts. Features detailed chassis, complete motor and interior and a removable hood or 'bonnet.'

Rogers Motor Company Bofors 40mm AA Gun and Carriage, 1/16, 40

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$89   

Rare, large 1/16 scale highly pre-fabricated kit from 1945. Very high quality wood scale kit measuring 14 inches long when assembled. Features pre-cut and precarved hardwood parts, completely formed wheels, die-cut fibre detail parts, numerous other pre-shaped and factory cut parts and much more. Rogers spent a significant amount of time on the instructions, providing detailed assembly steps, a photo of the completed model, full size plans and a very large number of assembly detail drawings. The kit has never been started. The small parts are either still in factory sealed paper bags or inventoried complete. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete with full instructions with plans. 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 manufacture, 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 M4 Sherman 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 WWII 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.

Monogram Artorama The Zebras African Animal Group, CR101

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$100   

This kit was found in the stock room of a long-closed hobby shop and is in factory-new condition. From the original Monogram "Four Star" line. Hardbox is dated 1961. Very large and rare injection molded craft kit. Contains 9.75 inch by 7.75 inch frame - colorful pre-painted 3D Display - frame trim - injection molded Zebras and foliage - paint, two paint brushes and instructions with a small Artorama catalog. Scale unknown. The complete series consisted of three kits - the Lions, Giraffes and the Zebras. The kits are superbly done, but it is likely that the high cost ($2.98 in 1961) kept them from achieving high sales. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts, paint, brushes and instructions present.

Joe Ott Supermarine Spitfire with Ott-O-Formers - 32 inch Wingspan Wood Flying Model

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$69   

Rare kit from the late 1930s. This model is one of Joe Ott's mid-range line in size and price. Large model features 2 sheets of Ott-O-Formers, printwood, stripwood, full size plans, color insignia, clear canopy material, fully carved thrust button, main wheels and tail wheel, required metal hardware, covering tissue (2 sheets) and 2 blocks for the spinner. NOTE: the prop blank has been rough cut to shape and the 'lightning holes' in the fuselage Ott-O-Formers have been pressed out (normally they are factory die cut). Quality of all work is excellent. The kit has been inventory complete with all parts and plans. NOTE: plans are complete but have neat tape to the back. They are very fragile! Please note that the box displays better than the 'Fair+' grade but is missing the end flaps - hence the 'Fair+' grade.

Aurora Lockheed P-38 Lightning, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$125   

1959 issue with 'Famous Fighters' in the sunburst oval and dramatic Jo Kotula artwork. The box is in investment-grade 'near mint' condition with factory-fresh color and gloss, four solid corners, no tape, tape marks, price tags or tag marks, no fading and no litho loss. The only flaw is very light corner wear at the lower left. Molded in dark olive drab and clear with the famous Aurora 'Triangle Globe' clear base. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions and even the original tissue paper. The truly remarkable thing is that the decals are flat and in mint condition with absolutely no yellowing. The instructions are almost mint and have only the slightest yellowing - they are by far the 'whitest' copy I have ever seen.
