AMT 1968 Ford Thunderbird Coupe Promo With Original Box, 1/25, 9228-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$89   

Very rare friction motor promotional in superb condition and includes the original box. This model was obtained in 1968 by a discriminating adult collector in Lexington KY. The promo has never even been displayed - it has been in the box since it left the factory. The color and gloss are factory new. The chrome is 'near mint.' There is no body warp and the clear is in 'near mint' condition. I would grade this one 9 out of 10 with 10 being flawless. The deduction is for very light box roof scuffs. The original box is complete and 'very good+' with general age wear.

Monogram Speedee-Bilt Spad Pursuit - Flying Scale Model Airplane, G8-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$145   

Hardbox issue from 1957. For the advanced Monogram collector. Early, completely pre-fabricated multi-media kit featuring pre-colored and die cut balsa wood, precarved balsa, finished Monofoil wing, plastic detail parts (such as cowl and prop) and rubber motor. Designed for rubber free flight or Co2 engine power. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all wood and plastic parts, decals and instructions/plans. Before there were plastic models, there were wooden aircraft kits. These usually came in two types - solid and stick and tissue. The solid models were static and usually contained a few blocks of balsa and sometimes a detail part or two. These "Make Wood Look Like Plane" models required a very high level of skill in carving and finishing. The stick and tissue variety were slightly easier to build and provided the ultimate thrill - they could fly when complete with rubber power (and later with free-flight gas and eventually RC). They still required a great deal of skill, so manufacturers sought ways to make model building more accessible to everyone. One idea was pre-carving and/or prefabrication. This raised prices, naturally. Many manufacturers launched lines of 'easy' to build flying models but only Monogram succeeded in making an entire line at an affordable price that would actual fly. The original "Speedee-Bilt" kits were in one-piece two-color boxes. In the early 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top. Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut and pre painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings, carved wheels and numerous plastic details like cowling, pilot, missiles, prop and whatever was required. Assembly was by detailed full size plans and instructions. Monogram carried the Speedee-Bilt line for several years past it's prime and the advent of plastic kits, a testimony to the quality and popularity.
