Midwest Sweet Stik R/C Sport Trainer 54 Inch Wingspan - (Sweet Stick_, 128

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$145   

Very popular flier that is long out of production. And rare in this condition - it came from the original owner who was a very discriminating collector. He opened it once for inspection then put it in climate controlled storage. Never started. All the parts that were factory sealed are still in factory sealed bags. All the parts that the factory put rubber bands around still have the factory rubber bands. With full size plans. It would be difficult to find a better example.

Lindberg F-86 Sabre NATO Jet Fighter Motorized - Viet Nam Action Kit Issue, 1/48, 310M-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

$68   

Still factory sealed but the seal has split at multiple places. 1965 hardbox issue and the first motorized release with jet sound. Features electric motor, hardware, battery stand, full landing gear, two drop tanks and underwing missiles. Lindberg's "Viet Nam Action Kit" sticker was not well thought out; did Luftwaffe F-86s take part in that conflict? Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.

Revell USS Pennsylvania BB38 Battleship - Sea Power Issue, 1/426, H422-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$125   

1961 Sea Power softbox release. Rare kit of the Arizona's sister ship. The Pennsylvania was in dry-dock during the December 7th Pearl Harbor attack and survived with minimal damage. She was rebuilt and saw significant action in the Pacific in WWII, steaming over 150,000 miles from 1941 to 1945. It is thought that she may have fired more ammunition than any ship in history and she never once reported 'Not Ready' for any operation or need. After being used as a nuclear test ship at Bikini, she was towed to Kwajalein and sunk. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals, flag sheet and instructions.

Guillows Curtiss P-40 Warhawk - 16 inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Balsa Wood Kit, 501

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$22   

From the 1960s. One of a very popular 16.5 inch wingspan series of World War 2 stick and tissue flying kits. Includes die cut balsa parts, vacuform nose, wheels, plastic propeller, hardware, vacuform canopy, colored tissue, insignia and full size plans with detailed building instructions. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Aurora P-51 Mustang Screwdriver Issue, 1/27, 377-350

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$210   

1969 hardbox issue. This kit was designed as a gas powered flying model. However, Aurora discontinued the gas powered line very shortly after introduction due to returns and liability issues. Since the mold investment was already made, Aurora marketed these kits as large scale static models. For example, the 1/32 scale B-25 was issued in Gas U-Control and then static - but the P-51 may have only been issued in static. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed clear bag. The other parts have been inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Monogram Racing Mercedes 540K Slot Car With Tiger X-200 Motor - Race As Stock Or Classic, 1/24, SR2407-698

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$375   

Very rare model for the advanced Monogram collector or slot car enthusiast. Dated 1964. When the slot car craze took hold, Monogram boldly introduced nine very well engineered 1/24 and 1/32 kits. The models were so well done and expensive that they did not sell well; $7 was a small fortune back when most models were between 29 and 98 cents. The Monogram Mercedes claims to be the "Most Complete Detailed Racing Model - Ready to Assemble and Go!" and it was no idle boast. Features light-weight brass chassis that is strong and rigid, precision steel threaded-end axles, bronze bearings, steel drawn crown gear, nylon pickup, braided pickup brushes, brass screws, nut and other hardware, precision lightweight aluminum machined wheels with threaded hubs, powerful new tiger X-200 12V motor, Tiger Traction rubber racing tires with complete Goodyear details and more. The car parts are molded in red, white, chrome plate and clear plastic. Inside, all of the interior display cardboard and plastic is intact and in superb condition. All of the parts that were originally factory sealed are still factory sealed except the motor. The motor was removed for inspection only - it has never been run and is NOS. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried 100% complete and includes 'near mint' condition decals. All the paperwork is complete (which is rare), including the instructions, the " Tuning Tips / Alignment / International Racing Colors" booklet and a beautiful full color mini-catalog for the entire series of Monogram Slot Cars. The instructions are excellent other than a 1.5 inch closed tear. Please NOTE that the box has correct and neat repairs to three closed split corners. They were repaired from the inside with light cardstock and book binding cement. The entire line of Monogram Slot Cars consisted of a 1/32 MGA Sports Car, 1/32 Deuce Roadster and the following 1/24 scale vehicles: '55 Chevy Hardtop, '40 Ford Pickup, Duesenberg, '34 Ford Coupe, '36 Ford Coupe, '58 T-Bird and Mercedes 540K. If you know your Monogram cars, you can see that Monogram wisely utilized the molds of pre-existing Four Star kits to make these motorized versions from.

Necomisa Lockheed Vega Winnie Mae - Post's Round the World Record Settting Aircraft - (ex Lindberg), 1/48, 2214

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good+

$30   

Still factory sealed but the seal has multiple splits. From ex Lindberg late 1950s molds and a very nice kit for that time. n 1931, Post and Gatty flew the Vega 'Winnie Mae' around the world in 8 days, 15 hours and 8 minutes for a new world record. In 1933 Post tested a gyroscope automatic pilot and radio direction finder in another record flight lasting 7 days, 18 hours and 45 minutes. This aircraft is now in the Smithsonian Museum.

Hasegawa-Frog Messerschmitt Me-410 A-1, 1/72, JS-031-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$44   

Rare Japan Hasegawa/Frog early issue. As you know, AMT marketed Frog in the USA as AMT-Frog. Frog also marketed Hasegawa kits in the UK, but with no Hasegawa identification. What is even less known is that Hasegawa marketed Frog kits in Japan under the Hasegawa/Frog label. The parts appear to be molded in England while the decals, box and instructions were all made in Japan. This Me-410 is one of those kits. This is a very early example with the early rectangle logo; the Frog logo is immediately to the right. Most Japan issue kits had special features and this one is no exception. It includes a special round-based clear two-piece globe stand, a unopened tube of Hasegawa cement and additional decals - no fewer than four different '410s are represented with paint guides. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE the water stain on the right, which goes down the right short side and is also on the box tray. There is no water damage to the parts, decals or instructions.
