From 2003. Very nicely detailed kit of this once-popular drag car. In the 1950s and 60s this car was a common occurrence at the American drag strip due to it's light weight.

Globe 40 Foot Steel Box Car (50 Ton) - Burlington 'Way of the Zephyrs' - HO Craftsman Kit with Sprung Metal Trucks, HO, 4000-H

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Very high quality Globe kit from the 'Golden Age' of HO Craftsman kits. I have always considered Globe as one of the 'Cadillac' metal kit manufacture for their use of crisply embossed brass or steel and prototype factory paint and markings. This kit is a fine example. Features all steel sides, ends and roof with all parts completely and beautifully painted and marked as required, wooden floor, metal underframe beam and supports, other brass and steel details, metal trucks with real springs and full instructions/plans. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still sealed in the factory bags and the parts that were not sealed have been inventoried complete with the instructions/plans. If you have an interest in these highly accurate HO kits and the revolution they created in modeling, please read the article about their history located on this website.

Athearn One Dome Tank Car - Union Oil 76 - HO Craftsman Kit with Sprung Metal Trucks, 1/87, A505

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+


Includes working sprung metal trucks. Very high quality metal kit from the Golden Age of HO Craftsman kit. Builds a very accurate and highly detailed prototype.

Joe Ott Grumman F6F Hellcat 'Bild-A-Set' - 38 Inch Wingspan Flying Model, 107

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+


Dated 1944. Large 36 inch wingspan issue. The Joe Ott designed 'Bilt-A-Set' series was the height of classic stick and tissue flying model kits- not just for the box art, but also for the contents. The large wingspan kits were the top of the Joe Ott line and had a price tag to match. They were out of reach of most children in the 1940s. Fewer were produced, which makes them harder to find today. In a time when most kits came only with white tissue, printed wood and plans, the Bilt-A-Set line box came chock full of parts and features like Assembly Line jigs for straight fuselage and nacelles, Speedlok Clamps, Die cut plywood or balsa parts sheet, die cut cardstock sheets, colored tissue, color printed national markings, clear window material, fully illustrated instructions and more. This kit has never been started. Parts are still as new, all in the sheets. 100% complete - all sheets, instructions and accessories present.
