The other parts were never in sealed bags and have been inventoried complete, including decals and instructions. These boxes were thin, fragile and easily damaged. This one is no exception. It does have four solid corners but the typical wear, etc as shown. NOTE: one pilot 1/2 has neatly broken legs, which are present. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

Monogram B-52 Stratofortress with Jet Sound Vietnam Camouflage Issue, 1/72, PA215

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$185   

Rare 1969 issue has Vietnam-style boxart on a high-gloss box. This is the 2nd release of this kit and the last with rare 'Jet Sound.' These models were designed with a major selling point - an internal parts display that could be seen by potential modelers at the store. The display showed major parts of the kit. Inside, all cardboard presentation is still mint and even includes the tissue packing paper. At this point (1969), Monogram had ceased making 'Monoglue', so the B-52 presentation cardboard has a empty spot for glue. Contains 207 parts. Very nicely detailed. Features crew of three, detailed cockpit, elevating and traversing rear turret, opening and closing bomb bay doors, operating wing flaps, operating spoilers, optional position entry hatch and landing gear, and optional parts to display one nacelle open to show the jet engine and of course battery-powered realistic Jet Sound. It has never been started. Inventoried with all parts, 'excellent++' decals, instructions, B-52 booklet and Jet Sound supplement instructions present. Please NOTE that box displays better than the 'good++' rating but I graded it as such because there is tape residue on the bottom of the four side panels.

ITC Mercer Raceabout Motorized Cam-a-Matic with Working Lights, 1/8, 36376-895

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$325   

The largest injection molded kit ever made of this famous car. From the very early 1960s; features good detail for that time and operates realistically with Cam-a-Matic action. Car moves forward with real motor sound, then begins one of several pre-set steering patterns via one of four cams, stops at selected intervals, then flashes the headlights on then reverses at selected intervals! Measures about 17 inches long when built. Molded in red, black, clear and with plated plastic. Inside the kit is near mint. All internal packing material is present and 'excellent.' All the parts that were factory sealed are still in factory sealed bags. That includes the motor and all metal parts, plated parts, wheels/tires and two bags of red/black parts. The few very large parts and three metal rods what were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete, with an 'excellent' pin-stripe and instrument sticker sheet and 'excellent' instructions. The box displays better than the 'very good' grade but is graded as such due to a closed split on one box bottom corner and one box top corner (right upper side).

Guillows Piper Super Cub 95 - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 303

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$25   

Large scale well detailed kit. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using today's small and light servos and receivers. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform cowl, full color decals, colored tissue, die cut balsa parts, strip wood, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size plans. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production.
