Monogram B-26 Invader - Four Star Issue, 1/67, PA6-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$65   

Early Monogram model dated 1955. The box is in e'xcellent+' condition with great color, four solid corners, no creases or price tags, no fading, rips or tears. The only flaws is very light wear and a very small piece of clear tape on the upper long side. This is the third issue of this kit since it has 'PA6-98' and 'The Name For Quality Hobby Kits' in the box top logo (the second issue has 'Four Star Plastikit' in the logo). The actual release for this kit is probably in the late 1950s or early 1960s. Although created to 'box scale' (1/67 in this case), this model was very popular and remained in the catalog right up into the 1970s. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear. The kit has never started. Inventoried with all parts, decals and instructions present. NOTE: two tiny gun barrels are broken off one wing, but there are present and an easy repair.

Renwal Wrecker Crane US Army 5 Ton 6 x 6, 1/32, M559-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$95   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

Rare original issue from the 1950s - not the modern reissue. This large model has 155 parts and many action features. The kit of the six-wheel drive 5 ton Wrecker was designed straight from US Army Blueprints and data from the US Army Ordnance Corps. The kit incorporates nearly all the movable features of the actual equipment. The front wheels steer realistically, the hood opens to show the highly detailed engine, the windshield is collapsible and the doors of the cab can be opened and closed. The cab can be enclosed with a simulated canvas top. The rear train provides realistic suspension over irregular surfaces. The crane is completely operable and can hoist actual objects. The winch can be used realistically to pull other models. The jacks can be extended and lowered to support the truck. Additional sheave blocks are provided for hoisting and pulling operations. All four functions of the crane - lifting or lowering the shipper, extending or retracting the boom, winding or unwinding the hoist drum and swinging the boom to the left or right - can be realistically simulated. There has been no assembly. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the factory sealed clear bags. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete and include decals and instructions.

Aurora 1913 Mercer Raceabout Old Timers, 1/16, 572-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$129   

1961 issue. Done in a big 1/16 scale, this kit and the other 'Old Timers' in the series represented a significant leap forward in quality for Aurora. The kit features full suspension, transaxle and driveline detail. It builds up a rolling chassis like the real car, and includes full exhaust and a detailed interior. Molded in gloss ivory, gloss black and with chrome plated parts and real rubber tires. The kit has never been started. Inside, it is exactly as it left the factory. The black and chrome parts are still in the factory sealed bags. The ivory and clear were never factory sealed and have been inventoried complete including the instructions. Aurora was renowned for turning a profit and for keeping expenses down. In researching new kit subjects, they came upon a forgotten jewel - the Hudson Miniatures line of 1/16 scale wooden kits. Hudson had discontinued this line due to lack of sales of wooden kits. But the Hudson models were second to none in quality, research and documentation. Aurora was quick to realize this and used the research and layout from these kits to create the subjects for this 'Old Timers' series. It is fortunate for us that they did, because in most cases this is the only injection molded kit of these rare and classic early automobiles.

Zvezda Kruzenshtern Russian Four-Masted Barque - With Aftermarket PE Detail Set - (Krusenstern / ex German Padua Flying P Liner), 1/200, 9045

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$69   

Includes a superb and extensive brass PE detail set (two frets) that was made by Microdisign in Russia. It includes two frets and is still factory sealed. The actual model kit is very large scale and highly detailed. It measures about 23 inches long when assembled. It has numerous parts and some of the best plastic billowing sails I have ever seen - they are very thin, have rigging holes and are injection molded. The plastic is just flexible enough that it will not crack and can be rigged under tension. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. From Wikipedia: Kruzenshtern or Krusenstern is a four-masted barque that was built in 1926 at Geestemnde in Bremerhaven, Germany as Padua (named after the Italian city). She was surrendered to the USSR in 1946 as war reparation and renamed after the early 19th century Baltic German explorer in Russian service, Adam Johann Krusenstern (1770-1846). She is now a Russian sail training ship. Of the four remaining Flying P-Liners, the former Padua is the only one still in use, mainly for training purposes, with her home ports in Kaliningrad (formerly Konigsberg) and Murmansk. After Sedov, another former German ship, she is the largest traditional sailing vessel still in operation.
