Original dealer promotional model in very nice condition. It is 100% complete. This is a one-owner model that has always been adult owned.

Mt Clemons Mich"; the friction motor still works. The body is OK but has some warping as shown. Body color is glossy and pretty with slight foxing. The front and rear bumpers are stamped metal. Some of the fine trim (door handles etc) has been painted to 'professional' quality; it is good enough to pass for factory paint.

MPM TWO Kawanishi N1K1 Shinden George, 1/72, 72123

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$20   

includes TWO models. Each features fine, all recessed panel line detail, many photoetched parts and decals for four aircraft. Never started. Both have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. During construction of the NiK1 Kyofu (Strong Wind) float plane, the design team at Kawanishi did a study of converting that aircraft to a land-based fighter. The design seemed very promising, but the Japanese Navy rejected it. Kawanishi decided to privately fund the building of prototypes regardless. The aircraft flew and flew well, but the navy was unimpressed as they ordered the J2M Raiden into production. Kawanishi, undaunted, built four additional prototypes. The IJN was finally won over, and funds were released to produce the fighter. Production problems were solved in time for the Shiden (Violet Lightning) to see action before the end of the war, but not in significant numbers to change the tide. The Shiden was an excellent aircraft, but a modified version, NiK2-J may have been the finest Japanese Naval fighters of the war.

Pyro 1931 Cadillac Town Car, 1/32, C346-125

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$44   

Still factory sealed. 1965 Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box. The model includes rubber tires, chrome plated, colored and clear parts. Features a nicely detailed molded chassis with suspension, steering linkage and fuel tank, complete motor, spoked wheels, luggage trunk, full interior, dual side mount spare tires and a removable hood or 'bonnet'.

Aurora P-38 Lightning Brooklyn - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$219   

First issue Brooklyn kit from the early 1950. Molded in the correct light blue with little surface detail and no mass balances, pitot tube or landing gear struts, wheels and doors. Includes the correct rectangular clear stand for this issue. Decals and instructions are in excellent condition. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Aurora issues of the 1/48 scale P-38 are interesting to say the least. The first issue is the Brooklyn kit with the P-38/B-24 box artwork. Inside, the plastic is light blue with minimal surface detail and a clear canopy and rectangular stand that says 'Aurora Plastic Corp. Brooklyn, 4, N.Y.'. There are no landing gear, gear doors or mass balances. The second issue has identical box art, plastic color, decals and rectangular stand, but the box and instructions says 'West Hempstead' instead of Brooklyn. The clear stand mold has had 'Brooklyn' milled out, and there is no location on the stand. The third issue has the same artwork, but the full color 'Aurora Line' logo is used - but the big changes were on the inside. Aurora modified the molds, adding a pitot tube, elevator mass balances and landing gear struts, wheels and doors. The decals and stand remain the same, but the new instructions reflect the changes to the molds. This time the kit is molded in an attractive metallic blue. The fourth issue dropped the Jim Cox artwork in favor of a new P-38 flying from right to left across a threatening sky. The plastic still metallic light blue and the decals and stand remain unchanged. The new details were retained. The fifth issue was 1959. The oval 'Famous Fighters' logo was used with Jo Kotula artwork of two P-38s. The detail level of the kit remained the same, but it was molded in olive drab and clear. The newer 'Triangle' base was added at this time. Further issues kept this box artwork, but the oval logo changed as well as the price extensions.

$36

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.
