Lindberg Air Force Tank Destroyer P-47 Thunderbolt Motorized, 1/48, 303M-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++


Still factory sealed. First motorized release from the 1950s/early 60s in a hardbox and classic Ray Gaedke Art. Features motor driven prop, full landing gear, bombs and rocket load-out and extensive cowl checkerboard and invasion white-black stripe decals. Molded in green and clear (although I cannot confirm that). 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.

Megow Ranger Class B Gas Model - 44 Inch Wingspan Early Free Flight Aircraft, E-22

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Very, very rare. From the late 1930s or pre-war 40s. Fred Megow once stated that they lost money on the big gas models and sold very few; they were done for status only. This is a one owner kit; the box top and tray are in good condition given the age of the model; that stain on the litho lowers the overall grade to 'good'. The box top and bottom are 100% intact, never repaired and have great corners. Inside, the kit has never been touched. The small parts are still in the sealed paper envelope and it appears that the plans have never been unfolded. Includes quality printwood, stock balsa, factory cut stringers and spars (still held in a bundle together with the factory rubber bands), balsa and hardwood stock cut to general shape, fully formed wooden wheels, fully formed wire landing gear struts, sealed hardware packet and more. It is complete with all parts and plans. I do not see any covering tissue, but some models did not come with it (and it may be in the never opened plans).

Revell Guided Missile Fleet Set ABC Navy Log Gift Set USS Norton Sound / USS Nautilus Submarine / USS Boston - 'S' Issue, G333-495

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Rare 1955 first and only release. This special holiday promotional box includes all three ship models in 'factory-new' condition. All of the small parts are still in the clear factory sealed bags.

Please note that the box has great color and gloss, but significant wear as shown. NOTE that the paint, glue and brush are not present.

Monogram Phantom Huey UH-1B Chopper Motorized with Sound, 1/24, PA226

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


SALE!! Rare. First issue dated 1969. Large and completely transparent with a 20 inch long fuselage and nearly 2 foot rotor diameter. Well detailed with 184 parts and structural members and full internal detail. Features complete cockpit, pilot and co-pilot figures, full cabin, opening cabin door, inner fuselage framing, detailed engine and more. In the display base with the batteries is an electric motor which turns the main and tail rotors while the sound unit makes "chop-chop" sound that varies correctly with main rotor speed. To minimize painting, the kit is molded in clear, zinc chromate green, black, chrome plate, gray, olive drab and flexible black/gray ammo belts. The clear fuselage halves have no breaks or cracks, they are mint. The kit has never been started. Inside, the original red cardboard presentation material is complete and in 'excellent+' condition. All parts have been inventoried 100% complete including motor, hardware, wire, decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the decals have bug damage to the backing paper and some transfers have damage also; I have included two sets of excellent reproduction decals: one on clear decal paper and the other on white decal paper. Detailed instructions are included for these aftermarket decals. The Phantom Huey box top and tray are thin, fragile and easily damaged. This one is no exception- it is 99+% complete, but on the box top I have correctly repaired two split corners and two closed tears (on the short sides) with cardstock and book binding glue. The box bottom has three closed split corners. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

Aurora Boeing 737 Commercial Jet United Air Lines, 1/72, 359-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Rare 1/72 scale 737 dated 1966 with great Roy Grinnell boxart. Third issue with the 2.50 price extension instead of the earlier 1.98 or 2.49. Given the 250 price extension, this exact kit was likely issued around 1967/68. Molded in white and clear, with the large clear 'Triangle World' display base. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


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.

Revell Lockheed F-94 Starfire 1st Issue - Pre 'S' One Piece Box, 1/56, H201-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


One of the first three Revell aircraft molds issued in 1953. This kit is correct with no rivets and no landing gear. Instructions are printed on the back of the box. Complete with the unique stand that was only issued with these three kits and the gift set of these kits. This box is in excellent condition, complete with all end flaps and has not been crushed - usually these thin one-piece boxes are in very bad condition. Box has never been repaired. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts/decals and instructions present. Please note that this kit is different from the 'Pre-S' issue in the following ways: no rivet detail, almost no panel lines, different part numbers, pilots are a part of the fuselage (busts only), one piece wings and absence of the pods at the half-wingspan line, no landing gear and no holes for such, very early 'Colortone' logo decals and a silver, two piece plastic stand of a unique design that was not used again.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc


Still factory sealed. 1975 issue of this well detailed model featuring Normandy 'Cullin' hedge cutter and crew of two. Can be built with 'soft armor' as shown on the cover or as the standard welded-hull M4 without the Cullin and 'soft armor.' Modified Shermans were required to cut through the thick hedgerows of Normandy which had previously proved almost impenetrable. This modification assisted greatly with the speed of the offensive in this region.

Frog TWO Fairy Swordfish / TWO Hawker Hurricane IIC / TWO Spitfire Mk.8/9, 1/72, F258

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Reboxed to VG


SALE!! Includes all 6 kits in the three boxes shown. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But on these kits he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: he built minor sub assemblies (cockpit tubs, wing halves, etc) to 'professional' quality. He also almost always removed the displays stands. Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price. Please note that the Hurricanes were originally bagged, he re-boxed them into Frog 'Red Series' boxes from other kits and pasted the header to the box top.

Cleveland 1936 Caudron Racer - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-63

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models and is in exceptional condition. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material, highest quality plans, all parts required for assembly and decals (if issued with the kit). The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The Cleveland Model and Supply Company played a pivotal role in the development of true scale models. In 1909 Bleriot's English Channel flight caused a surge in aviation and model aircraft around the globe. Several companies were ideally positioned to take advantage of the aviation craze. In the USA, Wading River Manufacturing Co. (1909), White Aeroplane (1911), Ideal Model Aeroplane (1911), Broadfield Model Aeroplanes (1919) were among these pioneers, offering everything from plans and parts to complete kits and ARF models. Lindbergh's 1927 crossing of the Atlantic Ocean caused an even bigger world-wide phenomenon called 'The Aviation Craze' that extended up to the start of World War II. Many companies such as Megow, Guillow's and others started right around the time of Lindbergh's flight. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - were generally not accurate scale representations. In 1929, a youngster named Ed Packard had a very advanced dream to produce incredibly accurate, true scale models that flew perfectly. This radical idea established the world's longest operating single-owner model airplane supply business, called Cleveland Model and Supply Company. To this day, Cleveland models are treasured as the most accurate flying scale models produced. The fact that Mr. Packard started and successfully grew this business during The Great Depression is a testament to his ideals and business skill. I highly suggest the excellent book called 'Aviations great Recruiter, Cleveland's Ed Packard' by H.L. (Herm) Schreiner. It is an excellent history of the man, his company and the times of the Golden Age of Model Aviation.
