Pyro 1936 Duesenberg SSJ Roadster - LaGrande Body, 1/32, C412-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$39   

1966 Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to, in this case Gary Cooper and Clark Gable's automobiles. This was the Duesenberg Company's last great automobile before going out of business in 1937. The Model J was a superb automobile and the fastest and finest car of it's day. Never to be outdone, the two brothers made two supercharged 'Super-Duesenbergs' from J models and are referred to by the public as SSJs. (The term SSJ was never used by the factory) The output was a whopping 400 bhp. The model includes rubber tires, wire wheels, a tree of chrome plated parts, colored injection molded parts and clear parts. Features detailed chassis with suspension, complete motor, removable hood and a complete interior. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Still factory sealed and from the 1960s. The only larger scale Auburn kit in injection molded plastic. The '35 Auburn weighed 4200 lbs. and was one of the few cars of that time to have hydraulic brakes. Power came from a 150hp (@4000) supercharged engine with three inch exhaust pipes that easily sped the car to over 100 mph. Ab Jenkins set a record with a stock issue 851 at Bonneville Salt Flats in July of 1935, and became the first one to pilot a stock car for over 12 hours at an average of over 100 mph. Features detailed engine, opening hood and good interior detail. Although I obviously cannot confirm it, this kit is usually molded in colored plastic (like white or red), chrome plate and clear.

Pyro 1948 Lincoln Continental, 1/25, C502-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$56   

Mid 1960s release from the original molds. This is the only larger scale kit of the 1948 Classic Lincoln. Edsel Ford himself sketched the design for the large V-12 equipped convertible with the assistance of Bob Gregory. The cars were incredibly popular. This was likely due to good looks and not the power plant; it made only 125 hp and was always troublesome. The actual kit has a detailed engine, removable hood and convertible top, good full interior and more. It is molded in blue, clear, chrome plate and with rubber tires. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

OKB-144 Tupolev Tu-104A - Aeroflot Civil (Held Several World Records In 1957) / Personal Aircraft of Marshal Zhukov / Soviet Air Force VIP Transport Chkalovskaya Airbase, 1/144, 101

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$28   

Rare early 'Camel' in the early low-capacity seating configuration in 1/144 scale. This limited production kit has 71 injection molded parts (including clear parts), about 30 photoetched brass parts, detailed optional position landing gear and more. Includes paint guide and a large, extensive decal sheet for the three aircraft listed. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. At the start of the 1950s, Aeroflot needed a new and modern airliner with better capacity and performance. Tupolev OKB developed a design that used the wings, engines, and tail surfaces of the Tu-16 but had a wider, pressurized fuselage that held 50 passengers. The prototype first flew on June 17, 1955 with the production aircraft flying on November 5, 1955. The Tu-104A was powered by two Mikulin AM-3 axial-flow turbojet engines and had good performance; by 1957 the aircraft held many civil world records. It was the second jet airliner to enter service with the DH Comet being first; however, when the Comet was grounded from 1956 to 1958, the Tu-104A was the only jet airliner in operation world-wide. The first aircraft had a crew of two with a radio operator as the third; however, this was soon permanently reduced to just a pilot and co-pilot. The aircraft was not easy to fly, which Tupolev knew ahead of time because of the experience with the Badger bomber. Tu-104 pilots first trained on the Il-28 bomber, then flew airmail in unarmed Tu-16 Badgers between Moscow and Sverdlovsk painted in Aeroflot colors . Pilots with previous Tu-16 experience transitioned into the Tu-104 with relative ease. The Tu-104 was considered difficult to fly, as it was heavy on controls and quite fast on final approach, and at low speeds displayed a tendency to stall, a feature common with highly swept wings. While the Tu-104 was used by Aeroflot through the 1960s and 1970s, the safety record was poor and 16 of 96 aircraft were lost in accidents. Many Tu-104 systems were unreliable, the aircraft was heavy and very unstable with poor control response and a tendency to Dutch roll. Poor design of the wings resulted in a propensity to stall with little or no warning. The aircraft had a dangerous tendency to pitch up violently before stalling and quickly enter an unrecoverable dive. Due to the fear of stalling the aircraft, crews would fly approaches well above the recommended approach speed, landing between 170–190 mph, which is over 30 mph higher than recommended. At least two accidents were attributed to the pitch-up phenomenon, prompting changes to the design of the aircraft and operating procedures; but the problem remained. Aeroflot retired the Tu-104 in March 1979 following a fatal accident at Moscow, but several aircraft were transferred to the Soviet military, which used them as staff transports and to train cosmonauts in zero gravity. After a military Tu-104 crash in February 1981 killed 50 people (of which 17 were senior army and naval staff), it was permanently removed from service.

Same as the Testors kit as Italeri originally cut the molds. Very nicely detailed kit that features very fine fabric texture on the airframe parts, full cockpit, complete interior including troop benches, wheels and skids and two paratroopers. Includes markings for all three aircraft. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Waco CG-4 was designed and initially built by Waco Aircraft Company of Troy, OH. It first saw action in Sicily and the operation was termed a disaster. This likely had more to do with planning than the actual glider. Missions in Europe, including D-Day, went much better. The glider was even deployed to Burma. It could carry up to 13 troops, or a jeep and four men, or a 75mm Field Gun.
