Very large model from Airfix molds. Highly detailed including full engine and cockpit, opening canopy, rotating thrust nozzles, real rubber tires and much, much more.

Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good to VG
SALE!! Includes all 5 kits in the three boxes shown. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But on these kits he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: he built minor sub assemblies (cockpit tubs, wing halves, etc) to 'professional' quality. He also almost always removed the displays stands (if provided). Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price. Early Heller 'L' issues with wonderfulbox artwork. From the mid 1960s.

Wood and Metal Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed NM
Still factory sealed. Beautiful, true scale and very highly detailed model with laser cut hardwood parts, cast metal and photoetched metal fittings, completely finished hardwood wood details and more. Measures 360 mm long (about 14.2 inches long) when assembled. Can be motorized with an optional motor kit for operation on your G scale railroad. Other kits in this superb series include at least 7 different historical trolley / street cars, dioramas for the street cars, ships, small boats, two wagons, early steam locomotives and rolling stock. This tram is originally part of the 701/735 series of the Carris de Ferro de Lisboa Company that built them between 1936 and 1940. These trams were considered the safest in Lisbon as they were equipped with a reinforced brake system. They served on the most difficult lines with ramps of up to 12%. The Lisboa was equipped with five types of brakes: pneumatic, mechanical, electrical, electromagnetic by means of skates and mechanical to the skates. She has two powerful Metropolitan Vickers electric motors of 45 hp each and a Brill 21-E truck built by Maley & Tauton.The body is of the standard Lisbon type, derived from Brill's American designs, with its most notable feature being the distinctive domed roof. Lisboa remained in original condition until the updates between 1985 and 1987, during which time she was adapted to a single operator (driver/collector), pneumatic doors and the doors on one side were closed. From 1995 they began to be removed to be replaced by the remodeled trams in the 500 series, but several units remained operation for charter services and as backups.

Highly detailed full-hull model with hundreds of pieces and three frets of photoetched brass parts. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes flag sheet and instructions. The Danton was the lead ship of her class and displaced 18,318 tons fully loaded. She had a good speed of 19.2 knots and a very heavy mixed armament typical of the early 1900s pre-dreadnoughts: 4 x 12", 12 x 9.4" and 16 x 3" guns. Danton was launched on June 4, 1909 at Breast and entered service on June 1, 1911 in the Mediterranean Squadron. The German submarine U-64 sank her on March 19, 1917 off Sardinia; the wreckage was discovered in 2009 by a geological engineering company.

Very, very rare first issue. And even rarer in this condition - never built and 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Molded in ivory, clear, red-tinted clear, chrome plate and with rubber tires and metal axles. The kit has never been started.

Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Fair++
The largest injection molded kit ever made of this famous car. From the very early 1960s; features good detail for that time and operates realistically with Cam-a-Matic action. Car moves forward with real motor sound, then begins one of several pre-set steering patterns via one of four cams, stops at selected intervals, then flashes the headlights on then reverses at selected intervals! Measures about 17 inches long when built. Molded in red, black, clear and with plated plastic. The kit has never been started. The motor with metal parts and plated parts are still in their factory sealed bags, as are half of the red parts, the brass plated parts and the black wheels/tires. NOTE: one red parts bag is open; the kit appears (I say appears because one red bag is still sealed) to be missing the starting crank and short steering column sleeve; both are easily made. Also missing decals. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts and instructions present. The yellow interior display cardboard is present and in 'good' condition. The box top displays much better than the 'fair++' grade but is graded as such because one short side is torn but complete and taped from the inside. The lower box (tray) is complete but split on many corners and repaired with clear tape. There is a small, high quality repair to the underside of the chassis where there was a 1 inch closed split on a fender mount.

SPECIAL ORDER limited production kit. Museum quality high definition resin castings. Complete kit with all parts needed for assembly. Some kits include photo-etched details and decals if required -email for details on a certain kit. Kits are molded upon receipt of payment. Normal wait is two to three weeks. The USS New York CA-2 was the second US armored cruiser, the Maine being the very first. The Maine took so long to finish that the New York actually entered service first. After diverting from a trip to Key West, New York became flagship at Santiago de Cuba, 1898 in the Spanish American War. She enjoyed a long and eclectic Navy career. She was renamed USS Saratoga (ACR-2) to make 'name space' for the Battleship New York on Feb 16, 1911. On December 1, 1917, she was renamed Rochester to free up the name for CV-3. As Rochester, she served in Haiti, Shanghai, and the P.I. Hulked at Cavite in 1938, the veteran of 40 years in the Fleet was scuttled on December 24, 1941 to prevent capture.

Rare very first issue from Aurora's first factory in Brooklyn. This early kit, as with the other Brooklyn's, was issued without landing gear, bombs and has very little rivet detail. All parts correct for this kit molded in high-gloss yellow and clear including Brooklyn Base, Brooklyn Instructions and correct early Tatem Decals - even the original tissue packing paper is present. The box is solid and displays nicely. Gloss and colors are like new. On the top, there is light surface wear at the lower left. On the sides there is a 1" thin tape tear on one long side and a 1/2" thin tape tear on the other long side from the original tape seal. There is no other tape, price stickers or other defects. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Wood and Metal Model Kit, Box Condition: Good++
Very, very rare. From the early 1930s. Notice that the motor is referred to simply as 5/8" bored engine. There is no record of a public sale of this kit since the mid 1990s and no public photo of one until now. It is safe to say that only a handful are left. Fred Megow once stated that they lost money on the big gas models (like this Cadet) and sold very few; they were done for status only. The box top and tray are in exceptional condition given the age of the model. The box top and litho are both 100% intact, although the corners are taped due to splits and the litho has stains as shown. The tray is better with no splits. This is an incredible kit for that time with a high degree of prefabrication- "Can Be Built In A Few Evenings!" at the box says and it is true. Features ready-carved, completed hollow wing leading edges from a single block of balsa, conical monocoque fuselage, universally acceptable motor mounting, special wing mounting that protects the model (the wing will fly off loose undamaged in case of a collision), realistic cabin, high aspect ratio, solid, factory cut tail, high quality printwood, spars, stripwood and sheet wood, balsa blocks as required, metal stock, finished rubber tires with wooden hubs, the original paper envelope including all hardware, embossed and outlined aluminum sheet including lower, top and nose cowls, beautiful fuselage-length 'CADET' insignia in black and silver, covering material, huge, detailed plans and even a four page, illustrated brochure by Maxwell B. Bassett (Pioneer Gas Model Builder and Designer) called 'Flying Gasoline Powered Models.' Even the original cardboard dividers and inserts are present. There is no assembly but NOTE: 20 wing ribs are cut out to 'professional' quality. All other parts are uncut. Carefully inventoried and NOTE: missing the prop blank and fluids. The factory rubber bands disintegrated. Otherwise includes all other items, insignia and paperwork.
