Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc++
Very rare kit for the advanced collector. This is a very hard to fine original O-lin kit in the very small box, early Ray Gaedke box art and advertisement for O-lin 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-lin 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 a beautiful, glossy medium blue and has the correct decals and instructions. The decals and instructions have minor yellowing but are in excellent condition. The kit has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts, instructions and decals.

Rare 1954/55 Pre-S true issue with the fantastic artwork of a DC-7 at the moment just before touchdown. Please note, this is the correct first release with the one-piece plastic stand arm and instructions that illustrate this. Also, the main gear axles are separate parts on this issue. On the second issues the gear struts were modified and the axles were moved to the wheels, and the stand arm was changed to two plastic parts because the one-piece stand arm was fragile and in use it broke easily. Very few were made as Revell quickly corrected this weakness. Correctly molded in gloss silver and clear and a large, colorful decal sheet. Inside, the kit has never been started. I has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Instructions are 'near mint' with the detailed American Airlines route map on the back. Decals are 'excellent' and flat with no curl and light yellowing.

Very rare promotional model of the 'Safeguard' ABM Missile Spartan. The Sprint and Spartan pair made up the missiles of this Anti-Ballistic Missile system with Spartan handling the longer ranges. The system was made operational on October 1 1975 and Congress voted to shut it down less than 24 hours later on October 2 1975. Condition is exceptional. Missile is NM with a tiny chip out of one fin and very slight wear. The base is NM also. Missile measures 17 inches long. There are no touch ups/repair and no cracks. Decal is near mint also on base. Base says 'Spartan - McDonnell Douglas - McDonnell Douglas Astronautics Company'. Insurance required on shipping. NOTE: This model was issued with two bases. One had two pins to hold the missile. The other is the cradle pictured. This missile has the two pin holes - so it was either left over stock and put on the new base or found it's way to the newer base over the years.
