Revell Convair F-106A Delta Dart Whip Fly - With Whistle and Streamers, 1/67, H159-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Rare. 1961 issue in the Whip Fly 'Master Modeler' series. Does include the Master Modeler Trading Stamp (for the Competition Corvette) and MM application form. This series was quickly discontinued when it discovered that heavily weighted models with pointed front ends swinging at terrific speeds around young children might not be safe. Based on the 1950s F-106 "S" kit, the Delta Dart Whip Fly comes with USAF decals, flight ballast, handle, 12 feet of control line, control ring, colorful streamers (cut from the colored bag according to the instructions) for the jet engines and a underside pod which is a in-flight whistle! Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Revell B-36 Giant Bomber - True First Issue Pre 'S' With One Piece Stand Arm, 1/184, H205-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Very rare 1954 true first issue, narrow height Pre 'S' box with full background artwork. It is molded in gloss silver and clear plastic and has the early one-piece stand arm (three prongs at the top) and correct instructions showing that stand. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. It even has the original 'Thick Paper Towel' packing material that Revell used for a short time. One prop blade is neatly broken at the hub but is present so it can be repaired. The Revell B-36 had an interesting early history which took years to unfold. All early issues share the H205-98 part number and are molded in gloss silver and clear plastic. The first issue (this kit) has the full background art and the one piece stand arm (also shown on the instructions). The second issue carries the same full background box art but has the improved two piece stand arm and the instructions that reflect that. For the third issue, Revell made the box taller by .25 inches and improved the contrast of the artwork by adding a completely new and very light (yellow) background. This issue also had the two piece stand arm and instructions reflecting that.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


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.

KVZ Ilyushin Il-62 - Interflug / Aeroflot, 1/100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+


NOTE: very good builder kit only but not collectible; please read carefully for the condition. Hard to find kit with fantastic Cold War Box art. KVZ was the logo used by this East German kit manufacturer from 1969 to 1973. During this time, some unique Cold War kits were produced of Russian Airliners and Military Helicopters and Aircraft. NOTE: The box art is Interflug, but the kit decals are for Aeroflot only. Never started. Inventoried and complete with parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: a tube of factory glue has leaked as follows: glue on the inside of an engine nacelle half, a 1/4" x 1/8" spot on one wing half and the same on another wing half, 1/8" spot on the outside of an engine nacelle half, the tail skid is encased in glue and is included but will need to be reproduced (which is simple in this case) and one wheel has glue on one edge. The decals are flat and intact and the transfers are clean, but the backing paper has the typical 'slightly dark' aged look of many of the old KVZ sheets.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM+


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.

Planet Models Bolchovitinov S-2 - Soviet Attack Bomber Prototype, 1/72, 126

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Hard-to-find limited edition model finely cast in high definition resin. Features all fine recessed surface detail, twin clear vacuform canopies (in mint, never-yellowed condition), 'very good' cockpit detail and more. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. From William Pearce at oldmachinepress.com: With the intention of creating a high speed light bomber, Viktor Bolkhovitinov designed what is commonly referred to as the Bolkhovitinov S or Sparka. During flight trials the Soviet Air Force (VVS) referred to the aircraft as S-2M-103, for skorostnoy (high speed) with two M-103 engines; however, a number of other designations have been applied over the years. The common “Sparka” designation means twin—because the aircraft had two engines mounted in tandem. Other designations are BBS-1 for blizhniy bombardirovshchik skorostnoy (short range bomber, high-speed), BB for blizhniy bombardovshchik (short range bomber), and LB-S for lyohkiy bombardirovshchik-sparka (light bomber-paired). The Sparka was a low-wing aircraft of all-aluminum construction with stressed skin. The aircraft had a twin fin tail to increase the rear gunner’s field of fire. The undercarriage was fully retractable; the main gear retracted toward the rear, and the wheels rotated 90 degrees to lie flat within the wings. The pilot and navigator/bombardier/gunner sat in tandem under a long canopy. Between the pilot and second crew member was a small bomb bay for 882 lb (400 kg) of bombs. A plexiglass section on the bottom of the aircraft just aft of the bomb bay provided the bombardier a view of the ground. The aircraft was 43 ft 4 in (13.2 m) long and had a relatively short wingspan of 37 ft 4 in (11.38 m). The Sparka weighed 12,460 lb (5,652 kg). Development on the Sparka was abandoned in mid-1941, partially a result of the German invasion. However, further studies were made on the feasibility of the tandem engine arrangement powering a fighter, but these studies did not lead to the production of any aircraft. In addition, the factory where the Sparka was built was needed to produce the Petlyakov Pe-2 attack bomber.

Tamiya M551 Sheridan Remote Control Motorized, 1/35, MT231

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Very rare and even more so in this condition. Tamiya's early armor models were the finest works of the mold maker's art and the very top of that line had push-button remote control and dual electric motor operation. This is one of those kits, featuring factory-assembled, all-metal gear box with two RE-14 electric motors, hand-held remote control, factory wired switch and control unit, metal hardware and a very well detailed model kit of this US light tank.

Heller HMS Victory - With Sails, 1/100, 897

Very large and very highly detailed with 2,107 pieces and measures over 43 inches long when assembled. Widely consider to be one of the most detailed injection molded sailing kits kits ever made. Never started. Inventoried complete with all pieces. Includes instructions and color flag sheet but NOTE: they are quality photocopies. NOTE: the delicate bow parts are broken but complete and fit back together well for a straight-forward repair. This is very common due to how Heller packed the parts.
