Rare in this condition; the box is in investment-grade 'near mint+' condition with only the slightest bit of wear. Older issue with a UPC code, likely from the 1970s.

And thanks to Stephen Payne for submitting this additional information- The team of Ronnie Sox and Buddy Martin raced at tracks throughout North Carolina and became a national sensation in the 1960s and early '70s dominating the action in their chosen area of competition, including the Super Stock, Factory Experimental, Funny Car, and Pro Stock categories. The team duo pioneered the development of drag racing teams as professional business operations. Sox was the winningest Pro Stock driver (nine victories in 23 events) in the 1970-72 "four-speed era." Initially Martin and Sox were competitors, but Martin approached Sox to drive his car after concluding that he just couldn't beat him. The Sox & Martin team ceased operation at the end of the 1975 season as a result of the energy crisis and dwindling factory support.

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$125   

Rare. Brand new, never removed from the box and complete. High quality die-cast model that is completely factory built and painted. Please note the canopy is present, but Franklin Mint shipped them off the model. You have to snap it on to install it. When I saw this kit had never been removed from the packaging, I did not open it. If any of the paperwork is important to you, let me know before you purchase and I will check for you. This is what Franklin Mint says about each of these models: "Each of our die-cast models are hand-assembled and hand painted to ensure quality and authentic detail. To create each exciting precision replica, our designers and engineers make exhaustive examinations of their subject from every conceivable angle; photographing, sketching and in many cases studying the actual plans.

Each is a masterpiece of the model maker's art, reflecting our passion for perfection, our total commitment to superb craftsmanship, and our abiding respect for quality and authenticity."

Airmodel Heinkel He-119 (He-111U), 1/72, 169

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

The He-119 was developed as a high speed recon bomber in 1937. The revolutionary design was highly streamlined with the prop driven two couples DB601 engines with a drive shaft through a glazed noze. When the Germans announced a new world speed record by the "He-111U" in late 1937, it was actually the He-119 that set the record. Basic vac kit with white and clear parts - recessed panel details. Never started and 100% complete.

Otaki Dornier Do-X Flying Boat - (DoX), 1/144, OT2-17-1500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$89   

Very nicely molded and detailed. Kit has over 110 parts and a 13 inch wingspan. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Famous German Flying Boat built in 1929. Dornier dreamed that this huge aircraft would become a trans-oceanic airliner with passengers traveling in oceanliner-like luxury. A tour of South and North America was conducted, but orders never materialized due to excessive fuel consumption and a lack of power. Total load was 170 passengers and crew, and the 12 engines developed 7200 HP.

ITC F-108 Rapier with Booster and Launching Platform, 1/89, 3663-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++++

$2250   

Very rare kit from 1960 in exceptional condition. The box is superb with factory gloss and color, four solid corners, no price tags, factory tape marks only with no tape tears or any litho tears. It is free of creases and 'dishing.' The only wear is a very small amount of corner and edge wear and light scuffs. The box bottom tray is exceptional as well. Very interesting kit with raised and recessed panel line detail. The kit comes with the proposed operating zero-length launching system and fall-away rocket booster. The booster is detachable from the F-108 (if you wish). The aircraft has moving canards and the launcher elevates to launching position then back to storage position. Molded in the correct ivory plastic with metal parts for the elevation mechanism. The kit includes the correct decals and instructions as well. The decals, spring and two metal shafts are still packed in the ITC factory bag. The instructions are excellent with typical yellowing, factory folds only and no tears or edge wear. Inside, the kit is in factory-new condition. It has not been started. It has been inventoried complete with every plastic part, metal part, decals and instructions and even the Ideal Quality 'Inspection Slip.' The F-108 was a proposed interceptor and escort for the B-70 tri-sonic bomber and ITC was quick to capitalize on this new design. The kit was produced quickly and the rest is history. When the F-108 hit the shelves, it did not look like the design. Photos had been released by the US Air Force of the mock-up that were not available when ITC made the molds. This and the cancellation of the F-108 program lead to a very short release life for the Rapier and ITC quickly pulled it from the shelves. NOTE: shipping insurance is required.

Features fine raised detail, cockpit seats, instrument panel and control sticks, opening cabin door, floats with wheels and decals for US Air Force, Navy, Army or Marines. Molded in a stunning gloss dark blue and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$250   

Very rare Revell Japan Takara large 1/32 scale 'George'. It is rumored that these molds were lost when the freighter carrying them sank in the Sea of Japan. Other molds lost on that ship were the 1/32 Oscar, Tony and Raiden (Jack). The parts are molded in the correct medium gray and clear for this issue. The kit features very fine panel lines, highly detailed cockpit and engine, removable cowling and optional position canopy, working flaps and drop tank/bomb load.

Inside the model has never been started. All the parts are still in the factory sealed bags. Instructions and decals are as new. Shipping insurance is required for this model. Please note that the box would grade much higher, but there is clear tape on the lower end of all four box top sides.
