Never started and complete. Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

MPC 1970 Dodge Charger Sub Lime Promo With Original Box and Decals, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very, very rare promotional model, especially in this condition and with the original box and decals. The box is stamped "CHARGER SUB LIME." This model was obtained in 1972 in Lexington KY by a very discriminating adult collector. The model is in amazing condition. The paint has like-new color and gloss, the chrome is in factory-new condition and the model has never even been displayed outside the box. There is zero body warp and the clear is in 'near mint' condition. I would grade this one 9.5 out of 10 with 10 flawless. The deduction is for light box scratches on the roof. The decals are also very nice, with very light wear and a small amount of foxing being the only flaws. Even includes the original factory packing paper. The box is complete with all flaps and solid but has wear as shown and age foxing.
