AMT 1968 Ford Galaxie XL GT 428 2 Door Hardtop Promo With Original Box, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$179   

Very rare, especially in this condition. Original friction-drive promotional model in a stunning yellow with a black chassis and metal axles. One-owner model was obtained new in 1969 in Lexington, KY by a very discriminating adult collector. The box is original. The model has perfect color and gloss, the chrome is like new and has never even been displayed. Tires are perfect (never rolled) and it has never even been displayed. I would grade it 9.7 out of 10 with 10 being flawless. I naturally hesitate to declare anything 'flawless.'

All parts and paperwork are still sealed in the internal factory clear bag. The box displays better than 'good+' but is graded such due to clear tape on one long side.

ITC Halibut SSGN 587 Cam-A-Matic Submarine - (Electric Powered Diving Motorized Regulus Sub), 1/175, 3660-998

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$699   

From 1960. NOTE: kit is 100% complete but has minor (6 parts neat assembly so please read carefully. This model is the zenith of the ITC Design and Engineering Team, and maybe of all operational plastic model kits. It is not only rare but is considered the most complicated operating model ever produced. The large 24.75 inch submarine sails from the power of a large electric motor driving twin geared propellers. It changes headings, dives, surfaces, and a Regulus II missile comes out of the hanger and launches...all automatically. The engineering on this kit is fantastic and a major break-through for that time. The model worked, and did work well, but was certainly not a toy for inexperienced model builders. The high price ($9.98) and difficulties that youngsters had with assembly and operation made for a short production run. The fact the ITC left the model business for good shortly after releasing the kit contributed to the scarcity as well. The boxtop displays much better than the 'good' grade; I have graded it 'good' because the box has clear tape on it, split corners, a taped closed tear of 2.5" on one long side and general wear as shown. Molded in the correct white and red, with numerous metal shaft, chain, screws and the correct motor. Inside, the kit is in very good condition but NOTE: it has neat, minor assembly. The main batter cover, battery contact and wire have been assembled. It was adult done to 'professional' quality. On the top inner hull, parts 11, 16 and 14 are installed, to 'excellent+ to professional' quality. A very small 1/2" x 1/4" (1.3 x .6 cm) clear panel is installed on the underside center of the lower hull - the work done is 'excellent++' and it is watertight. There is no other assembly. The kit has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts present and decals (stickers) and instructions. Stickers and instructions are in 'near mint' condition. The factory internal packing cardboard is complete and in 'excellent+' condition as shown. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$115   

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.

Tamiya US Army Heavy Field Piece M2 155mm Long Tom Gun, 1/21, DT103-450

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$220   

Very rare early Tamiya kit and an amazing operating model, even by modern standards. Larger-scale model is very well detailed and features a complex gun elevating system that works by turning the proper hand wheel which then functions through a series of metal pinion gears, functional elevation pistons, working transversing gear through turning the correct hand wheel (through metal pinion gears also), opening breech, movable trailing arms for travel or firing position, removable wheel towing set with realistic suspension that you build up one leaf sprint at a time and much more. This model does everything but launch a projectile; there is a inner metal barrel and some other (rubber banded moving) parts I do not understand, so it may well fire something. The model is molded in dark olive drab, light gray, with rubber tires and with a large number of metal parts. The kit has never been started. Inside it is exactly as it left the factory, with all parts factory sealed in clear bags with Tamiya 155mm M2 Gun paper headers.
