Yellow Cat Type 1 Halftrack APC Hoha, 1/35, 35014

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$145   

Very, very rare and highly detailed model cast in high definition resin. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. From tanks-encyclopedia.com: The Type 1 Ho-Ha half-track was an armored personnel transport designed and introduced by the Imperial Japanese Army in 1941 and finally put into production in 1944. Its main purpose was to help the modernization of the Imperial Japanese Army by increasing the number of mechanized infantry regiments. This way, Japanese ground forces would catch up with other developed nations of the time that had already invested in this field, specifically the US. Mechanized infantry, unlike regular units, would have been faster and would have had an easier time dealing with the rough terrain that was more and more often encountered by the Japanese as the war progressed in China and in the hilly or mountainous landscape of the Pacific islands.

Planet Models Tachikawa Ki-77, 1/72, 016

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$68   

Still factory sealed. Rare and the only kit of this subject. This limited edition model is finely cast in high definition resin and features all fine recessed surface detail, a clear vacuform canopy, 'good' cockpit detail and more. From the excellent website daveswarbirds.com: The aircraft that was eventually to be known as the Ki-77 was designed as a civilian long-distance record-breaking aircraft which would fly in the sub-stratosphere. It was hoped that its development would eventually lead to a future stratospheric transport aircraft. Work on the project began in March 1940, with further development being interrupted by the beginning of the Pacific War. Development resumed in the summer of 1942 under the designation of Ki-77, with the hopes that it could be used as a long-range communications aircraft that would help keep Japan in contact with the other Axis powers. Only two prototypes were completed, though they did achieve some unofficial speed records before the war's end.

$38   

Still factory sealed. This is a set of 4 unopened Tru-Flight reissues of the incredibly popular 1944 line. In 1944 the General Mills Company had an Englishman named Rigby design the models.

Thousands of these were given away. They flew so well that a National Championship Contest was organized where awards were given for the best maneuverability and longest flights. The aircraft were re-introduced in 1966, and these excellent full color reproductions are from 1986.

Aurora Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina - Scale Error Version, 1/74, 374-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$135   

Rare, first issue artwork from about 1955-56. This was a fine effort by Aurora for that time and an impressive model when assembled. Features retracting pontoons and rotating props. Includes correct early logo instructions which show the clear 'Triangle World' stand and the correct stand is included. This must be one of the first instances of the 'Triangle' stand being used as it is normally associated with oval 'Famous Fighter' logo kits. Molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note the 'good' grade due to small white paint spots at the right and a slight crunch at the upper right corner. It is interesting to note that the early Aurora PBY issue has at least three small variations to the box top. The very first issue says '1/4 SCALE MODEL' at the top right. Clearly, this kit is not 1/48 scale and someone at Aurora corrected it. Following that, there are two known corrections: early and late. On the early version, the '1/4' was blotted out with a dark blue oval or circle and '5/32' was added after the word 'SCALE.' It was now correct, but the appearance was not completely professional. This box is the early, uncorrected version.

Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond.
