Sanwa Messershmitt Me-110 C-4, 1/90, 169

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Very Rare. Early, colorful issue from the late 1950s. The kit is dated by the 'Sanwa Plastic' logo, which was normally used in the late 1950s up to 1960. NOTE: there is currently no assembly, but two parts were very neatly joined in the past. At one time, one top wing was very neatly glued to a lower wing by an adult to 'professional' quality. But the glue got old and it fell off. Inventoried 100% complete including all parts, decals and instructions. The box has damage and a few crunches as shown including two on the long lower side. Sanwa was one of Japan's earliest post-WWII kit producers, making model kits in the 1950s; some sources say 1955. Kits were marketed under Sanwa and Tokyo Plamo, with the general consensus being the the later logo came out around 1960 or later. Production ended in 1964, making all Sanwa kits rare and collectible. The entire line was extensive. It included very small scale tanks (some that were motorized), battleships in three scales with the larger ones motorized with dual prop drive, slot cars, civil sport boats and an electric outboard, a full line of hand gun models that actually shot plastic bullets, two fighter groups and bomber groups (probably Monogram), several different lines of scale aircraft, missile kits, scale (static) car models of early Japanese automobiles, at least 7 flying model aircraft that had electric and rubber motors, a 'Super Control Stand' P-51 that moved with a joystick and had an electric propeller and sound unit, two different lighthouses and a windmill, an air cushion boat, motor cycles, a diving submarine (electric) and a working (rubber band) George Washington Class SSBN and even a garden tractor with an electric motor. Just before going out of business, Sanwa issued some kits in conjunction with the 1964 Tokyo Olympic games - these kits even included a copy of an Olympic medal.

1966 Pyro issue from original molds. Ideal builder- the box is rough but the kit and instructions inside are mint.

The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to, such as this Alfa, which was in the collection of John C. Silva Jr of the Silva Auto Engineering Shop in Massachusetts. Features detailed chassis, complete motor and interior and a removable hood. Molded in red and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions.
