Revell IL-38 Bison Russian Bomber 'S' Issue, 1/169, H235-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$210   

First issue in "Excellent++" condition. "S" hardbox is dated 1956 and has factory-new gloss and color, four solid corners, no price tags or marks from them, no tape or tape marks (at all - this box even escaped the factory sealing machine!), no fading or creases, no torn litho and no stains. The flaws are light edge wear and tiny chips and corner wear. Molded in the correct gloss dark green and clear with clear Revelving Globe stand. The kit has never been started. Inside, all the small parts are still in the factory sealed bag. The larger parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. The decals and instructions are 'near mint+' condition with typical light yellowing as the only flaw.

Orange Crush-Revell 1904 Oldsmobile Delivery Wagon - Early Issue, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$69   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Early issue when Modelandia had only 13 stores (see below). Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacturer. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

FM MS-472 Vanneau, 1/48, 6027

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$36   

Very well detailed limited issue model. Features main injection molded parts, cast metal, resin and brass photoetched details. Full decals are furnished. The kit has never been started. Inventoried with all parts and decals. NOTE: missing instructions. The small parts are still factory bag sealed. There are no parts missing from the injection mold trees and there are two sets of vac canopies. The kit contents compare perfectly to a photo in an on-line review - that is why I know it is complete.

Revell Lockheed F-104C and F-104G Starfighter - USAF or Luftwaffe, 1/48, H236

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM+

$275   

Still factory sealed and in remarkable investment-grade 'Near Mint+' condition. The seal is intact. 1969 hardbox issue. This kit was originally 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 and they became know as "Screwdriver Kits" to collectors. 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.

$4

Mach Dzik P52 Polish Navy (U-Class) Submarine, 1/400, 02

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

$12   

Still factory sealed but the seal has drawn the box top concave. Dzik ("Wild Boar") and her sister Solol ("Falcon" were the first submarines delivered to the Polish Navy once WWII began. By February of 1941 Sokol was patrolling the Bay of Biscay and Dzik followed shortly after delivery on October 11, 1942. Both of these ships achieved significant success in the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas, where they destroyed several enemy ships. Both subs outlasted the war and were returned to England. Dzik was then lent to the Danish Navy in 1946. Her active service ended in 1957 and she was broken up in 1958. Very nicely molded and detailed but certainly not a 'state of the art' Tamiya style kit. Features full hull with propellers and rudder, display stand, color paint guide on the back of the box with rigging diagram and full decals with flags.

Blue Water Navy Russian Kilo Class Attack Submarine, 1/350, BN35047

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$24

Aurora Nike Hercules Missile - With Launching Platform MIM-14, 1/48, 379-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$379   

1958 first and only release. Large 1/48 scale missile includes an elevating launcher, many moving parts and a crew of four. Molded in the correct white and olive drab. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The decals are in amazing 'near mint' condition and the instructions are 'excellent++.' The Aurora "Missile Line" is legendary. In the late 1950s, the first missile model kits sold briskly, so Aurora and Revell both planned extensive lines. However, the missile modeling craze disappeared as quickly as it started. Models that were in the works were canceled or completed if they were far enough along. Those that were completed, like the Nike Hercules, were fine efforts but sold poorly and had very short lives, making them rare collector items today.

Testors B-66B Destroyer - (A-3A), 1/72, 677

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

$44   

Still factory sealed. Hard-to-find 1/72 version of the gun tailed B-66. This is the USAF version of the very large Navy Skywarrior A-3 or 'Whale' as the carrier crews and flight crews called it due to its large size. Features all recessed panel lines, detailed gear wells, cockpit detail and optional position landing gear. Contains a large, colorful decal sheet for two USAF aircraft - RB-66B 42nd TRW-England 1960 and RB-66B 19th TRW-England 1958. This is the early B-66 which is not that far removed externally from the original Navy A-3 Bomber. This B-66 still retains the tail stinger.
