UPC Martin MB-2 Bomber - (ex-ITC), 1/50, 5065-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair++


From ITC molds and a very nice kit for that time. The MB-2 is the famous first aircraft to sink a battleship under any circumstances. Billy Mitchell arranged to have the ex-WWI German Battleship Ostfriesland used as target practice for for 6 MB-2s, and the ship sank in 25 minutes. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE: some of the parts are a different color plastic; they are from the Ringo (ITC) version of the same kit. UPC stood for Universal Powermaster Corporation which was based out of New York City, NY. UPC did not cut their own molds, but bought kits already molded from other manufacturers and re-boxed the kits in the USA. Scott Eidson, the famous artist best known for his artwork with Revell, also did UPC box art in the 1960s. All UPC production ended in the 1970s.

Sterling Stearman PT-17 Kaydet Dusts Crops in Flight - 22 Inch Wingspan for R/C / Control Line / Free Flight, A2

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Very nicely produced stick-and-tissue model that actually releases 'crop dust' in flight. Can be flown with rubber, electric or gas control line or converted to RC with modern lightweight systems. Features high quality die-cut balsa sheet parts, stripwood and spars, fully formed wire landing gear struts, finished wheels, other wood and metal stock as required, light plastic engine, exhaust and pilot bust, clear dual die-cut windscreens, rubber motor, plastic prop, a big set of decals, covering tissue and excellent full size plans with detailed instructions. NOTE: this kit has minor assembly. The plastic motor halves are professionally assembled. There is no other assembly. The kit has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and plans. Some parts have been professionally punched out but all are accounted for. A professional draftsman drew some assembly guide lines on the plans (wings only) 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 had the action features and included everything needed to complete the model.

Masterkit Boeing 757-200 United - (757), 1/144, 98-013

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint


Still factory sealed. Limited issue, injection molded kit with extensive United Airlines decals matching the box top photo. Includes a full color paint guide on the bottom of the box.

Heller Etendard IV Type M, 1/50, L500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair


Large 1/50 scale Etendard IV. Nicely molded older kit featuring fine raised panel detail, cockpit, folding wings, working arresting gear, optional position landing gear and speed brakes and real rubber tires. Includes drop tanks and underwing weapons as well. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. This is the second issue of the very rare 'operating kit' of the Etendard IV. The original issue had automatic speed brakes and retractable landing gear. The model used a complex series of 6 cogs and gears with wire springs and twine to make functioning landing gear and speed brakes. When you lowered the arresting (tail) hook, the landing gear doors opened and the nose and main wheels extended. When you raised the arresting hook, the landing gear retracted and the doors closed. Furthermore, when you pulled out the parachute release at the tail, the speed brakes lowered. When you closed it, the speed brakes closed. Please note that although this model is from those molds, it does not have those action features - only the ones that I listed. The box displays much better than the 'fair' rating, but it is graded as such because there is a closed tear on the box top on the left and a closed tear on the lower long side panel.

Hawk Mig-15 Russian Fighter, 1/48, 626-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Rare 1965 hardbox issue. Great box art by Tom Morgan is seemingly 'the other side' of the C-131 box artwork where Mig-15s are escorting a '131. Molded in a beautiful gloss sliver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Lindberg German Ju-87 Stuka Dive Bomber Motorized, 1/48, 306M-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++


Late 1950 motorized hardbox issue with Ray Gaedke artwork. The box is in exceptional 'near mint+' investment-grade condition because I just had to remove the factory seal because it was falling apart. As a result, it has factory-new color and gloss, four perfect corners, no tape or tags, no fading, rips or tears. Most would call this box 'mint' but it does have some very light wear. Features pilot and gunner figures, one piece canopy, centerline large bomb and two wing-mounted smaller bombs, electric motor for the prop, display stand and batter holder with wires. Molded in green and clear. Never started. The motor is still in the factory sealed bag; the model parts have been inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. 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.

Comet Aeronca Chief - 54 inch Wingspan for R/C for Free Flight, 3506

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair++


1970s very large scale kit with 54 inch wingspan. For rubber or gas free flight or RC (radio control). Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction, high quality printwood, factory-cut spars and stringers, balsa nose block, metal prop shaft, clear window material, fully formed wheels and thrust button, rubber motor, covering tissue, propeller and detailed full size plans with building instructions. The model has not been started. Inventoried complete with all parts and plans present. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Monogram Grumman Bearcat F8F - Blue Box Issue, 1/72, PA144-70

Monogram Curtiss Hawk 75 A-3 (P-36A) - Vichy French or Finland, 1/72, 74007

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+


1991 issue of this quality kit. Finely molded with the excellent detail and fit that Monogram was famous for. It includes a large and extensive decal sheet for two aircraft. I believe that the very colorful French Hawk is Vichy; even the wing and cowling stripes are included for this scheme. The other aircraft is CU-560, which I believe to be Finnish, although the Finnish markings are 'post-war' (non-swastika), which was probably necessary since this was made in Europe. Never started. It has been inventoried with all aircraft parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: missing display stand. The Hawk P-36A has the dubious distinction of fighting on both sides and for more countries than any other plane in history during the opening years of WWII. This Hawk, one in a long progression of famous fighter aircraft, was the winner of a 1935 competition. The USAA Corps received the first aircraft in April of 1938 and the French ordered 100 aircraft in May of the same year. French Hawks shot down just over 30 German planes during the battle for France. The Germans captured the aircraft and sold them to Finland. Others were captured when the Germans overran Norway. In all over 800 Hawks were produced and served in China, Netherlands East Indies, Portugal, Great Britain, Thailand, Argentina and Peru. Although an excellent fighter in 1935, the Hawk was outclassed by the time the war started but when flown properly still gave a good account of itself.
