Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
Very rare. First and only issue from 1963; very shortly after this kit was issued, ITC discontinued all plastic kit production. Large 1/450 scale kit of one of the most beautiful ocean liners of all time. Features very good detail for the 1960s, full hull that is 24.75 inches long, 124 parts, 2 winged funnels, 3 anchors, 4 propellers, 2 launches, 20 lifeboats, 2 whaleboats, detailed mast, kingposts and superstructure. Inside, the model has never been started. The kit is molded in black (hull), red (funnels and fittings) and ivory (promenade and superstructure) to minimize painting (like in the ITC United States). Kit also includes a beautiful letter (with a color painting of the France on the letterhead) from Georges Croisile, the Commandant of the French Line, introducing the kit and welcoming you onboard the real France one day. The kit has never been started. The red parts are still sealed in the factory bags. The other parts had tears in the bags due to age, so I opened them and did an inventory - NOTE: missing one tiny part, a lifeboat davit. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts present. Decals, flag sheet and instructions are included.

Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: NM
Ex-Olin molds dating from the mid 1950s. The box is in investment-grade 'near mint' condition with stunning, factory-fresh color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs or fading, to tears, litho damage or price tags. The only tape is the factory sealing tape. Wonderful and well detailed kit for that time. The one-piece hull is about one foot long; R/C was never imagined for such small models back then, but it could be easily made radio control with modern technology. Molded in white and beautiful gloss mahogany. Never started. Inventoried with all parts, flags and instructions present. Instructions are included for powered operation; some hardware is included. However, the motor, battery box and wires were never included.
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: NM+
1956 'S' issue with the fantastic box art that these kits were famous for. This is one of the finest examples I have seen of this kit. The box is in investment-grade 'near mint+' with factory-fresh gloss and color, no fading, stains, price tags, split corners, litho damage, tears or repairs of any kind. The only flaws are very, very light wear which does not even show up in the photo. Instructions are near mint; decals are beautiful, flat and 'near mint' with only the slightest tint of yellow. Molded in silver and clear with the famous Revell 'Swivel Base Display Stand.' The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
Very, very rare- contains traces of the element 'unobtainium.' There is no internet or known auction history of one of these kits changing hands. Purchased new by a US Navy officer in about 1961 in Tokyo, Japan. He equipped himself nicely for a future R/C hobby upon his return to the states, but never built this kit. Features a large (1160 mm) wingspan and is specifically designed for R/C flight on a .9 to 1.5 size gas engine. This was a deluxe and highly prefabricated kit for that time with very high quality wood parts, of which 90% or more are completely cut out with the part number stamped in ink on each one. Woods are hardwood, plywood and balsa. Many of the parts are still held together with the unique color-tinted clear tape from this era of Japanese modeling. Other cut and shaped parts are still sealed in a plastic bag with a 'Picnic' header. This kit has sheeted fuselage sides which are also completely cut out. There is a sealed bag of hardware, sealed balloon wheels, plenty of silkspan-style covering material, fully formed wire landing gear and of course a very large set of actual size plans that includes R/C equipment placement guides. The kit has never been started. Some parts are still in the factory sealed bags and others are still factory taped as they were at the factory. The loose parts have been inventoried all present. Includes plans.

The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
Wood and Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Very rare, and even rarer with the important fittings kit. This was Robbe's flagship model and was around $800 with the optional ship's fittings kit which is included. This full-scale model is designed for radio control operation with two props and rudders and provides great maneuverability even in rough water. The beautiful and huge hull is one piece molded ABS plastic and all other parts are pre-fabricated (die-cut) of wood and plastic. Includes hull, mast, funnel and small parts, die-cut decks, superstructure and crane parts, die-cut main frames and deck beams, clear glazing, double rudder system, R/C fitting set with tillers and pushrods, 35mm diameter screws, rubber rubbing strip, rails, anchor winch parts, optional fittings set and more. This example is never touched. It has not been started and all the parts are still exactly as the factory shipped them. The ones that were sealed are still sealed and the few that were not have been inventoried complete. With all plans/instructions. Unless you specify otherwise, this kit will be shipped in the huge and sturdy original box with paper covering the identification label and photo. If you choose to have it boxed again, extra shipping will apply. Please note, this may not ship to other countries who have size limited on postage because the box is 52.3 x 18.2 x 14.2 inches. Must be shipped insured.

Very rare. The Mister Darby is a scale replica of a 150' ocean-going tug built by Halter Marine for Jackson Marine. Her job was moving oil drilling rigs at sea. Long out of production, this huge and powerful legendary kit weighs in at about 60 pounds complete and can tow a small boat with two full grown men around a lake.

The actual kit has never been touched and is still in the original factory shipping box with all packing material. The large box of parts/plans (everything other than the hull) is still factory sealed. Please note, this kit comes in a huge box that is 50 x 15 x 14 inches so it will not ship to countries with size restrictions. I will ship the kit in the original factory shipping box unless you specify other wise (and then additional shipping charges will apply). Shipping insurance is required.
