ITC F-108 Rapier with Booster and Launching Platform, 1/89, 3663-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++++

$2250   

Very rare kit from 1960 in exceptional condition. The box is superb with factory gloss and color, four solid corners, no price tags, factory tape marks only with no tape tears or any litho tears. It is free of creases and 'dishing.' The only wear is a very small amount of corner and edge wear and light scuffs. The box bottom tray is exceptional as well. Very interesting kit with raised and recessed panel line detail. The kit comes with the proposed operating zero-length launching system and fall-away rocket booster. The booster is detachable from the F-108 (if you wish). The aircraft has moving canards and the launcher elevates to launching position then back to storage position. Molded in the correct ivory plastic with metal parts for the elevation mechanism. The kit includes the correct decals and instructions as well. The decals, spring and two metal shafts are still packed in the ITC factory bag. The instructions are excellent with typical yellowing, factory folds only and no tears or edge wear. Inside, the kit is in factory-new condition. It has not been started. It has been inventoried complete with every plastic part, metal part, decals and instructions and even the Ideal Quality 'Inspection Slip.' The F-108 was a proposed interceptor and escort for the B-70 tri-sonic bomber and ITC was quick to capitalize on this new design. The kit was produced quickly and the rest is history. When the F-108 hit the shelves, it did not look like the design. Photos had been released by the US Air Force of the mock-up that were not available when ITC made the molds. This and the cancellation of the F-108 program lead to a very short release life for the Rapier and ITC quickly pulled it from the shelves. NOTE: shipping insurance is required.

It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$119   

Rare first issue dated 1969. Not the common reissue. The box is complete and has four solid corners, but there is writing as shown and bug damage oddly restricted to the edges. This is a wonderful and fun kit with machine guns, two skeletons, detailed engine and interior, removable hood and more. Molded in the correct tan, clear, chrome plate and with rubber tires. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are 'very good++' and the small Monogram fold-out catalog is included. Also includes the two original trading cards that each measure 3.5 x 2.5 inches. One is for Rommel's Rod (this kit) and the other is for Tom Daniel's Swee'T'ee Model T Street and Show Rod. The Swee'T'ee card has 'very good+' centering, new color and gloss and the only real flaws are three small chips at the very edge of the white border. The car image is flawless. Rommel's Rod has only 'good to fair' centering. The image is flawless but there are several chips at the very edge of the white border.

Aurora Northrop P-61 Black Widow, 1/48, 392-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$179   

Still in the factory seal and in 'Excellent+' condition. The only flaws are corner creases at the left side as shown. Hardbox issue is dated 1960 - however, this issue lacks the 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo boarder and has a 198 price extension, so it likely from about 1963/64. Large 1/48 scale model features some of Jo Kotula's finest artwork - the P-61 patrols over a South Pacific island base at night, destroying an intruder (or defender?).
