Kobo-Hiryu IJN Survey Ship Katsuriki 1942, 1/700, R03

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$68   

Very rare limited production model of this IJN Auxiliary. Very well detailed resin waterline model that includes full illustrated instructions and even a painting guide. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags. The Katsuriki had a very interesting and long career. She was originally completed in 1917 as minelayer, and the first ocean going ship of this type in the Japanese Navy. In WWI she served around the Japanese home islands. In the 1920s she served as a guardship off many of the the South Pacific Mandate Islands and began doing survey work of these new Japanese territories. With expansionist policies already in place, the need for a specialized survey ship was obvious and in 1935 she was converted as such. The minelaying equipment was removed and surveying devices from the retired survey ship Manshu were installed. She took part in much intelligence gathering off the coast of China, then examined future targets for the Imperial Navy before WWII. Some areas she visited included the Spratly Islands, Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands, and surveyed and Tarawa in the Gilbert Islands. When World War II stared, Katsuriki was re-designated a 'secret military vessel' on 20 July 1942, although her mission was still maritime surveying. She mapped the coasts of the Strait of Malacca, Burma, Singapore, the Dutch East Indies and north coast of New Guinea in support of Japanese troop landings and combat operations. On 21 September 1944 Katsukiki was torpedoed by USS Haddo southwest of Manila and sank. The Haddo spotted about 40 survivors and attempted to rescue, but the Japanese chose to drown themselves.

The Stag Hound was designed by the famous Donald McKay and was launched on December 7, 1850. She is famous for her great speed and turned a nice profit for her owners. The most notable event was when the Stag Hound was asked to take a copy of President Lincoln's inaugural address to London. During this run, she raced the steamer 'America' and won easily. Shortly after this she was lost off Brazil to a spontaneous combustion of her coal cargo. The crew successfully abandoned ship. The captain was the last to leave.

Monogram The Big Rod Custom Ford T Bucket Show Go Roadster, 1/8, PC85-1098

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$425   

Rare, original issue from 1963 and in one-owner, never started condition. In the early 1960s Monogram invested in a series of huge 1/8 scale models with extraordinary detail and working features. The complete line consisted of the Big 'T' Street/Rod, Big Drag Competition Roadster, Big Rod Show/Go Roadster (this kit), Big Tub Custom Phaeton and this Big Deuce '32 Ford Roadster. The Big T molds alone cost over $100,000 to produce - an absolute fortune at the time. The design work alone for the molds was $40,000. The total cost of the complete 1/8 scale project was over $1,000,000 - in 1963 money. The result was nearly flawless, large American automotive models that has never been equaled to this day. The Big Rod has 192 precision parts from numerous standard automobiles and custom parts. Features rolling chassis build up like the actual automobile, complete suspension, driveline and unique exhaust system, custom radius rods, dropped front end, tubular front axle, detailed brake backing plates, suicide spring perch, working steering with all linkage, highly detailed engine with 6 carburetors, finned valve covers, clear fuel lines, rubber hoses and all ignition wires, winged Moto-Meter, complete interior with simulated upholstery, bench seat, Cadillac steering wheel,, floor shift, Stewart-Warner Instruments, overhand pedals, real cloth seat belts with chrome buckles, optional position convertible top, windshield supports, plated oval gas tank with platform, Halibrand Quick-Change Rear End, highly realistic white wall slicks and tires, mag racing wheels and much more. Even includes exhibition accessories including easel with printed display poster for this car, two jack stands, a full chrome tool set, three flares, first aid kit and trophy. The box is complete but has wear as shown. Inside the kit almost factory-new. It has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. All the original factory cardboard display material and even the original chrome packing material is present- the lower tissue and all the clear 'separator' sections used between each part tree. The model is molded in the correct colors - high gloss yellow, clear, black, ivory, chrome plate and with rubber whitewall tires. The yello plastic is brilliant, glossy and deep...it looks like paint, but it is not. There are 6 big trees of chrome parts; 5 of them are in 'near mint' condition. The top tree chrome is 'very good++' as there is light spotting (luckily, this is the brake drum tree). Even includes the Big Rod Guarantee sheet shown at the right. Instructions are in superb "excellent++" condition and the decals are flat, intact and graded 'very good++.'
