Athearn MKT 50 Foot Auto Box Car - Metal HO Craftsman Kit, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$42   

In the 1930s and especially during the 40s/early 50s there was a revolution in model railroading: high quality kits became available for the first time. Before this, there were few standard gauges and most railroads were scratch built to any gauge the collector desired. This kit is a classic Athearn model from that era. These kits build very realistic models because parts that are metal on the real box car are metal in the kit; same for the wooden parts. All sides are factory painted and decorated the correct colors, leaving very little painting. Includes wooden floor, metal roof and car ends as well as opening doors, metal underside and detail fittings such as AB brake set, brake wheel, etc. These make great stand alone models or high-quality rolling stock for your line. The kit has not been started. All small parts are still in factory sealed bags and all other parts have been inventoried complete with the car sides in as new condition.

Guillows Nieuport 11 - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 203

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$49   

Large scale well detailed kit. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using today's small and light servos and receivers. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, full color decals, colored tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size plans. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and 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.

O-Lin Republic Seabee Amphibian, 1/48, 503

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

$145   

Very rare kit for the advanced collector. The Seabee was produced as a high performance sport amphibian. This is a very hard-to-fine original O-line kit in the small box and advertisement for O-line cement on the top. Produced in 1949 or just before. O-Lin (Olin) was founded by Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen - hence the company name. Although a producer of flying models in the 1930s, O-line produced some of the earliest American injection molded kits in the late 1940s. In 1950 the partnership may have ended, because all branding was changed to Lindberg and Paul Lindberg. Inside, the kit is as new. It is molded in high gloss light gray and has the correct decals and instructions. The kit has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts, instructions and decals.

The remaining vessels remained on active Coast Guard duty until 1986 to 1990. They were replaced with a succession of 82', 87' and 110' Patrol Boats.
