This is the Saturn V that is 43.25 inches high and 3.93 inches in diameter. Recommended engine is the D12-3. The kit has never been started.

The parts that were factory bag sealed and still sealed, and the parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Revell B-36 Giant Bomber - True First Issue Pre 'S' With One Piece Stand Arm, 1/184, H205-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$275   

Very rare 1954 true first issue, narrow height Pre 'S' box with full background artwork. It is molded in gloss silver and clear plastic and has the early one-piece stand arm (three prongs at the top) and correct instructions showing that stand. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. It even has the original 'Thick Paper Towel' packing material that Revell used for a short time. One prop blade is neatly broken at the hub but is present so it can be repaired. The Revell B-36 had an interesting early history which took years to unfold. All early issues share the H205-98 part number and are molded in gloss silver and clear plastic. The first issue (this kit) has the full background art and the one piece stand arm (also shown on the instructions). The second issue carries the same full background box art but has the improved two piece stand arm and the instructions that reflect that. For the third issue, Revell made the box taller by .25 inches and improved the contrast of the artwork by adding a completely new and very light (yellow) background. This issue also had the two piece stand arm and instructions reflecting that.

Revell P2V-7 Neptune 'S' Issue - (P2V7), 1/104, H239-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$210   

Fresh from a long-closed hobby shop and in amazing investment-grade "Near Mint" condition. 1955 first issue hardbox has timeless 'S' box art and factory-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no fading, rips or tears, no stains, no price tags or marks from them and no tape or tape marks (other than the factory tape marks, of course). The only flaws are very light general wear, a very light crease at the lower left (if it is even visible in the photo) and some very light wear, mainly on the top side panel. This was a nicely molded and detailed kit for that time. The plastic is the correct gloss silver and clear and includes the famous Swivel Base Display Stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Focke-Wulf Fw-190 Famous Fighters Of All Nations - First Issue With Swastika, 1/48, 30-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$349   

Very rare first issue which includes the proper swastika box art and swastika decals. The box has excellent color and gloss, four solid original corners (no repairs), no price tags or tag marks, no tape or tape marks (other than the thin factory sealing tape of course), no fading, stains or torn/missing litho. Flaws include general wear as shown, especially to the left corners and edge as shown. This issue is 100% correct for the first release. The FW-190 was originally issued at the new West Hempstead factory, meaning that it was never part of the famous "Brooklyn 8" (Aurora's first 8 aircraft kits). That also means that the first issue had landing gear and bombs but still had the small clear rectangle stand which was also shown on the instructions. The late issue of the '190 also means it is the rarest of the swastika issues because the swastika was painted out a short time after moving to West Hempstead. Molded in the correct gloss black and clear, with the rectangle-based clear stand, matching instructions and a stunning 'near mint' condition decal sheet which is flat and not even yellowed. The instructions are 'excellent' with slight yellowing, light wear and a 3/4" closed split on a fold crease. Even the original factory packing tissue is present.

Aurora Spitfire Famous Fighters of all Nations First Issue, 1/48, 20-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$349   

Rare first issue that is 100% correct. The box has excellent color and gloss, four solid original corners (no repairs), no fading or stains, no missing litho or tears, no tags or tag marks and no tape or tape marks (other than the factory sealing tape of course). Flaws include very light general wear as shown and moderate corner wear at the lower left corner. This first issue has minimal surface detail and is molded in the correct non-metallic medium blue and clear plastic. It also has the correct rectangle-based clear display stand and the instructions match this perfectly. (The second and all later issues had greatly increased rivet detail and were molded in a metallic blue plastic) The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The decals are flat and in amazing 'near mint' condition with only the slightest yellowing. The instructions are 'near mint+' with slight yellowing being the only flaw. Even the original factory packing tissue is present.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

First issue from 1957 with the great artwork that has made this kits so collectible. Molded in gloss dark gray and clear with the large Revell Swivel Stand. Never started. All parts are still in the clear factory sealed bag. With decals and instructions. The box displays much better than the 'good-' grade but is rated as such due to two heavy creases, two closed split corners, clear tape on the box sides and another crease on the right short panel.

Revell Boeing SST Supersonic 2 Kits (2707), 1/200, H262-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$195   

Still factory sealed. Rare and even more so in this condition. First issue from 1967 with Boeing prototype markings. The kit contains two large 18 inch long SSTs, one in landing and one in cruise configuration. The Boeing SST modeled here is the second (2707-200) variant which still had the swing-wing design which proved impractical in this aircraft. The damaging effects of sonic booms over population centers ultimately contributed to the cancellation of the project.
