Sterling Boeing P-26A Peashooter - 28 inch Wingspan for RC, E10

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$95   

28 inch wingspan kit for RC, CO2, free flight, control line or non-flying detailed scale kit. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to RC or control line. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Revell 1993 Chevrolet Caprice Taxi/Fire Chief, 1/25, 6294

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$32   

The last full size Chevrolet with rear wheel drive was the famous (or infamous, depending on your point of view) Caprice. Described as "Beautifully Aerodynamic" or "An Upside-Down Bathtub", most folks either loved or hated the design. But there was no mistaking the popularity and reliability. Civil sales were impressive and fleet sales to taxi or public service sectors were even more so. This kit is well detailed with full engine, engine compartment, opening hood, full suspension and underbody, complete interior, optional parts for Fire Chief and Taxi versions, rubber tires and much more. NOTE: this kit has minor, 'professional' quality subassembly as follows: upper control arms, radiator & front suspension to chassis; (1) side view mirror to door; light bar built. There is no other assembly. Inventoried and NOTE: missing (1) part, the fire-chief radio. Otherwise complete with all other parts and includes decals and instructions.

SNAP Hawk Missile Carrier - (ex Adams), 1/40, 159

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$54   

Rare early 1960s model from the original 1950s Adams molds. Well molded and detailed for that time featuring three Hawk Missiles, movable wheels and flexible tracks, elevating lift & supports, three figures and decals. Molded in gloss white and dark olive drab plastic. Never started and all parts and decals are still in the original factory-sealed bag. With instructions. These molds must have had a very interesting history. The molds were cut in 1955 or 1956, either at Adams or by one of Revell's contractors. It appeared to be part of the Adams/Revell 1/40 line but Revell never issued the kit. The famous HO model train manufacturer Athearn purchased the Adams molds. Ahtearn used the name SNAP for all plastic kit releases and slightly modified the molds by adding their name (SNAP) & logo to a part (or two) of each kit. This Hawk Missile Carrier kit is made in the USA but is actually a SNAP export to Canada; the importer was 'International Games of Canada Limited' in 'New Toronto Ontario.' They used a silver overprint to block out the kit number and pric extension and then added '#159 in Canada.' Then UPC (Universal Power Master) either leased or purchased (probably the former) the Adams molds from SNAP in the 1960s. While most UPC kits say 'Made in Japan' the ex-Adams models do not and say 'Made in USA'. Things get even more interesting with the Life-Like issue. How Life-Like came across the molds is unfortunately unknown but it may have been in a bulk purchase of molds from Athearn since there were in the same general part of the country. This is simply conjecture, however.

Aurora Nieuport 11, 1/48, 101-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$42   

First issue from 1956 with the one-year-only 'Northern Lights' rectangular logo. The artwork is by Jim Cox. This is a very nice model for that time that includes a pilot, ground display with chocks and a ground crew member as well. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab and black plastic. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. This kit is one of a very successful line of 1/48 WWI aircraft that Aurora launched in 1956. The line sold so well that new kits were added into the 1960s. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab green and black. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Thanks to Eugene DuBey, we know some history on the aircraft that Aurora modeled. The tail # on the kit rudder is 1354, the number of a Nie 16 that served with "CAM de Dunquerke / St Pol sur Mer", 1916-17.

SNAP G.I. Soldiers - ex Revell GI Figure Set - (GI Soldiers), 1/40, 5149-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$95   

Rare model from the original 1950s Revell "S" Issue molds. Very highly detailed and includes the following figures - general, radioman, 2 bazooka men, 2 mortar men with mortar, 2 machine gunners with tripod and machine gun, soldier with mine detector, soldier with flame thrower and 9 other infantrymen. Molded in olive drab plastic. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. These molds must have had a very interesting history. It is assumed that these were cut by Revell or much more likely one of their contractors in the mid-late 1950s; perhaps they used Adam's mold cutter. On the surface, there is no sign that they were to be parts of the joint Adams/Revell 1/40 line but Adams never issued the kit. However, Adams must have had the molds because when the famous HO model train manufacturer Athearn purchased the Adams molds, they ended up with the Soldiers. Ahtearn used the name SNAP for all plastic kit releases and slightly modified the molds by adding their name & logo to a part (or two) of each kit. This GI Soldier kit is made in the USA. Things get even more interesting with the Life-Like issue. How Life-Like came across the molds is unfortunately unknown but it may have been in a bulk purchase of molds from Athearn since there were in the same general part of the country. This is simply conjecture, however.
