Ideal 1955 Desoto Fireflite 4 Door Friction Drive Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit

Sold   

Original dealer promotional model in 'good' condition. There is very little body warping which is rare. The original friction drive is intact. Green and white color is original and nice other than general wear and some light age foxing. The clear is 'very good' but can use cleaning. The tires are almost like new - if it was played with, it was not for long. No parts are missing and it is original except that the chassis has been painted black and some of the fine trim (door handles, trim, etc) has been correctly and very neatly adult painted. The quality is good enough to pass for factory paint.

SMP 1959 Chevrolet Impala 4 Door Sedan Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit

Sold   

Rare four door sedan. Original dealer promotional model; not a reissue. It has a metal chassis and is all original on the underside except the friction motor has been removed. I listed this as SMP, but it may have been AMT. The strongpoint of this model is the body, body parts, chassis and tires. These bodies were all celluloid plastic; this one does have some warping and is better than 90% of the survivors. The tires show no wear, the whitewalls are almost perfect and the bumpers are great except some slight chrome loss on the front one. The clear is missing. The fine trim and white cove have been correctly painted to 'excellent' quality by the previous owner. The box is not original. NOTE: I would only recommend this promo for restoration if you can find a donor windshield.

Blue Water Navy USS John S. McCain DDG56 Guided Missile Destroyer - Arleigh Burke Class - Re-Boxed, 1/350, BN-350102

Multimedia Model Kit

Sold   

Very high quality model and the only 1/350 scale model ever made of the McCain. BWN said they made the finest ship models available and it was no idle boast. The master was researched in depth and built to museum standards. In making the molds, the silicone was de-aired in a vacuum chamber; then the resin was pressure cast. This method makes for virtually air-bubble-free parts with flawless detail. Scale fidelity and historical accuracy are top-rate throughout. Features museum-quality resin castings, metal details and a large fret of photoetched brass parts. Includes very good pictorial and text instructions. NOTE: this kit has minor 'professional' quality assembly. The basic hull only is assembled and one coat of primer has been airbrushed on. There is no other assembly. The small parts and fittings are still in the internal factory sealed bags. Includes PE fret, instructions AND decals (Blue Water Navy did not furnish decals with this kit - they are aftermarket decals).
