Academy 1804 Trevithick The World's First Steam Locomotive, 1/38, 1525

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

From ex-Entex molds and well detailed. The world's first locomotive was the 1804 Trevithick. On February 13 of that year, Richard Trevithick's high pressure steam locomotive pulled five wagons carrying 10 tons of iron and 70 men on the Penydaren Tramroad from Methyr to Abercynon, Wales. The nine miles was covered in four hours and five minutes but much time was lost cutting down several trees and removing some large rocks. At times they reached the unheard of speed of five miles per hour! The performance won a 500 Pound wager for the train's owner, Mr. Samuel Homfrey and proved for once and for all that smooth steel wheels could obtain traction on a smooth iron rail. Until this day, conventional wisdom insisted that only geared wheels running on geared track would be able to pull any load up the slightest grade. The model is from the 1986 but the molds pre-date that. Older but very nice kit that is well detailed and molded. Includes display stand. The kit has never been started. The plastic parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags; the metal parts are also factory sealed. Includes instructions.

The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Comet Curtiss Jenny JN-4D - 24 inch Wingspan Flying Balsa Model Airplane, 3304-200

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good+

Sold   

Still factory sealed but the seal has many splits. Large wingspan flying model can be powered by rubber, electric or made R/C with the modern tiny and lightweight servos and receivers. Features traditional wood/tissue construction, detailed full size plans and building instructions, quality die-cut printwood, spars, stripwood, fully formed and finished wheels, wire stock, thrust button, metal prop shaft, plastic prop, tissue, rubber motor and decals. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. 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. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Guillows Spitfire - 16 Inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft, 504

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory sealed. From the 1960s. One of a very popular 16.5 inch wingspan series of World War 2 stick and tissue flying kits. Includes die cut balsa parts, vacuform nose, wheels, plastic propeller, hardware, vacuform canopy, colored tissue, insignia and full size plans with detailed building instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Revell F-104 Starfighter with Sidewinders 'S' Issue, 1/64, H199-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

Sold   

Fresh from old hobby shop stock. 1960 'S' issue in amazing, investment-grade 'Near Mint+' condition. Somehow this box even escaped the factory sealing tape machine, as it has no sealing tape and no typical stains from the tape. Very light wear is the only flaw to this fantastic box artwork. Revell took the nice original F-104 molds and added four then-new AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles, ground missile trailer and ground crew. Molded in the correct correct gloss silver and with the clear Revell Swivel Stand. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are both in 'near mint' condition.
