Revell Westinghouse Atomic Power Plant - 'S' Issue, 1/192, H1550-695

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


In 1959 Revell produced this incredibly detailed 'educational' kit of a standard Nuclear Plant in cooperation with Westinghouse. The kit was never reissued. It is fairly complicated kit with hundreds of parts, a full interior to the power plant and the auxiliary buildings and towers shown on the box top. The parts were molded in five colors to minimize painting. Features clear nuclear reactor vessel, separating reactor dome for full view of interior, movable gantry with operational hoist, working reactor hoist, circulating pumps, steam generator, turbine, electrical substation, high tension power lines, silver power 'wire', flag and flag pole, power plant sign and much more. The kit has never been started. NOTE: includes all power plant, all buildings towers and 'wire' but is MISSING the service truck, figures, clear printed fence, paper mat and nuclear power booklet. Includes all other parts, decals and instructions.

Mach 2 Leduc 022, 1/72, GP003

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+


Nicely molded for Mach 2 and features fine recessed panel lines, little to no flash and clear injection molded canopy. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. Please note that this kit did not come with any decals since the prototype usually had no markings. The final development of Rene Leduc's 1950s experiments with RamJet Power. The first experimental were the un-powered 010; these were the first aircraft to fly on ramjet power alone. Several accidents later, the program still showed promise so larger aircraft were built: the 021 and 022. The 021s completed their tests, and the unique 022 then flew 141 times. It has a centrally mounted turbo jet so it could take off on it's own power; 021 and 010 were carried aloft by a mother ship (Se-161). The turbojet in the 022 would accelerate it to ramjet operation speed. Fuel was stored in the round fuselage, but the ramjet consumed fuel so quickly that you had 10 minutes at the most at full power. The program was canceled in 1958 and Rene Leduc did not build further aircraft.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Limited edition kit with resin and photoetched parts. Includes all parts to make a correct Gulfhawk. This airplane is a civil F3F fuselage with F2F wings. The F2F wings were of shorter span and resulted in fantastic roll rates. The high-performance ship was flown for Gulf Oil by the famous stunt pilot Al Williams. It is now in the National Air and Space Museum. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora USS Skipjack Submarine Phota-Scope Issue, 1/228, 614-180

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Rare. 1970 issue featuring the Phota-Scope. In place of the nuclear reactor, Aurora put a tube that has a magnifying lens at the top and a film transparency of a submarine interior at the bottom. So when you lift the hatch, you looked through the magnifier to see the inside of the sub. It was an interesting idea, and Aurora extended Phota-scope to some tank kits around the same time. The kit has never been started. Inventoried with all parts, magnifying lens and tube, phota-scope picture, decals and correct instructions present. The box looks much better than the 'good' rating but is graded as such because there is a closed tear in the box top at the sail of the sub.

The kit has never been started. The aircraft model parts and actual part are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: missing replica Knights Cross.

Sanwa Spitfire 5B Motorized, 1/50, 158

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Very rare, larger-scale Sanwa motorized issue from the late 1950s or early 1960s. Features motorized propeller, original early electric motor, all hardware, battery holder and switch, factory glue tube, working elevators, rudder, ailerons and wing flaps, retractable landing gear and the on/off switch cleverly concealed in the back of the underwing radiator. Molded in a unique blue/gray, black and clear. The kit has never been started. The plastic parts are all still sealed in two factory bags. The hardware packet with the glue is still in a factory sealed bag as well. The motor is in the original bag but the bag is open. Decals are still factory sealed and 'very good' as are the instructions. The box is 100% complete and has great color but it graded low ('good-') due to significant general wear as shown, a side crease and closed tear on a long side and three closed splits on corners. Sanwa was one of Japan's earliest post-WWII kit producers, making model kits in the 1950s; some sources say 1955. Kits were marketed under Sanwa and Tokyo Plamo, with the general consensus being the the later logo came out around 1960 or later. Production ended in 1964, making all Sanwa kits rare and collectible. The entire line was extensive. It included very small scale tanks (some that were motorized), battleships in three scales with the larger ones motorized with dual prop drive, slot cars, civil sport boats and an electric outboard, a full line of hand gun models that actually shot plastic bullets, two fighter groups and bomber groups (probably Monogram), several different lines of scale aircraft, missile kits, scale (static) car models of early Japanese automobiles, at least 7 flying model aircraft that had electric and rubber motors, a 'Super Control Stand' P-51 that move with a joystick and had an electric propeller and sound unit, two different lighthouses and a windmill, an air cushion boat, motor cycles, a diving submarine (electric) and a working (rubber band) George Washington Class SSBN and even a garden tractor with an electric motor.

Cleveland Playboy Senior Class C Gas Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, GP-5017

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


70 inch wingspan class 'C' gas free-flight model airplane. Cleveland entered the 1930s gas model market with the famous Playboy series. The design is so solid and popular that it is still a favorite at meets today (Like SAM - Society of Antique Modelers) where free-flight competitions are still held. Cleveland was late to introduce these kits (1939), but they wanted to ensure that the quality and performance was there. It appears that there were three aircraft in the Playboy line - the Baby, Junior and Senior. The model has not been started and is in exceptional condition. Whoever buys it will be the second owner; the first lives in town with me. The parts are inventoried 100% complete and includes covering tissue and 'excellent' never-used plans. Please NOTE: that there is some bug damage to the issue paper and very tiny bit to the edge of the plans. The Cleveland Model and Supply Company played a pivotal role in the development of true scale models. In 1909 Bleriot's English Channel flight caused a surge in aviation and model aircraft around the globe. Several companies were ideally positioned to take advantage of the aviation craze. In the USA, Wading River Manufacturing Co. (1909), White Aeroplane (1911), Ideal Model Aeroplane (1911), Broadfield Model Aeroplanes (1919) were among these pioneers, offering everything from plans and parts to complete kits and ARF models. Lindbergh's 1927 crossing of the Atlantic Ocean caused an even bigger world-wide phenomenon called 'The Aviation Craze' that extended up to the start of World War II. Many companies such as Megow, Guillow's and others started right around the time of Lindbergh's flight. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - were generally not accurate scale representations. In 1929, a youngster named Ed Packard had a very advanced dream to produce incredibly accurate, true scale models that flew perfectly. This radical idea established the world's longest operating single-owner model airplane supply business, called Cleveland Model and Supply Company. To this day, Cleveland models are treasured as the most accurate flying scale models produced. The fact that Mr. Packard started and successfully grew this business during The Great Depression is a testament to his ideals and business skill. I highly suggest the excellent book called 'Aviations great Recruiter, Cleveland's Ed Packard' by H.L. (Herm) Schreiner. It is an excellent history of the man, his company and the times of the Golden Age of Model Aviation.
