SPECIAL ORDER limited production kit. Museum quality high definition resin castings. Complete kit with all parts needed for assembly.

The USS New York CA-2 was the second US armored cruiser, the Maine being the very first. The Maine took so long to finish that the New York actually entered service first. After diverting from a trip to Key West, New York became flagship at Santiago de Cuba, 1898 in the Spanish American War. She enjoyed a long and eclectic Navy career. She was renamed USS Saratoga (ACR-2) to make 'name space' for the Battleship New York on Feb 16, 1911. On December 1, 1917, she was renamed Rochester to free up the name for CV-3. As Rochester, she served in Haiti, Shanghai, and the P.I. Hulked at Cavite in 1938, the veteran of 40 years in the Fleet was scuttled on December 24, 1941 to prevent capture.

Revell DC-7 Flagship American Airlines One-Piece Stand Arm Pre-S Issue, 1/122, H219-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$149   

Rare, true first issue dated 1955 with the correct Pre-S fantastic artwork of a DC-7 at the moment just before touchdown. Please note, this is the correct first release with the one-piece plastic stand arm and instructions that illustrate this. There is even a rarer factory rubber stamp on the instructions to correct step one! Also, the main gear axles are separate parts on this issue. On the second issues the gear struts were modified and the axles were moved to the wheels, and the stand arm was changed to two plastic parts because the one-piece stand arm was fragile and in use it broke easily. Very few were made as Revell quickly corrected this weakness. Correctly molded in gloss silver and clear and a large, colorful decal sheet. Inside, the kit has never been started. Inside, the kit is exactly as it left the factory with all small parts still factory sealed in the 'krinkle' clear bag and the larger parts not sealed and inventoried complete. Instructions are 'excellent' with the detailed American Airlines route map on the back. Decals are 'excellent' also and flat with no curl and light yellowing. The box has a tear as shown, clear tape on the long sides and general wear as shown. All four corners are solid and original and the color and gloss are excellent.

Frog Westland Wessex I (S-58) - Royal Australian Navy or Royal Navy - Red Series, 1/72, F247

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-

$28   

Molded in light gray-blue. Very nicely molded model. Includes decals for both versions. This kit has never been started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Frog is considered the father of injection molded model kits. The Lines Brothers opened Frog in 1932, capitalizing on the fever caused by Lindberg's solo transatlantic flight. Almost overnight the western populations became 'Air-Minded', and anything aviation was in high demand. Frog created a quality line of stick and tissue rubber powered aircraft and gliders as well as innovative ready-to-fly rubber powered aircraft that required no assembly. The box even contained a built-in rubber motor winder and fuselage holder. Model airplane flight competitions were popular in Great Britain, and one category was 'Rise Off the Ground', or ROG. By changing this to 'Flies Right Off the Ground', the FROG name was born. In 1936 Frog created a line of injection molded plastic models, the first such kit line in the world (Hawk sold a line of injection molded aircraft models in 1934 but they were factory assembled and painted). Named 'Penguin' after the bird that does not fly, the kits were innovative beyond the means of production. At a time when models were simply built by wingspan, the Penguin line was a constant 1/72 scale. Furthermore, a large 1/72 Short S.30 Empire class flying boat contained a full interior and lights! A line of accessories such as AA guns, tractors, hanger, ambulance, sound locator, searchlights and lighting kits were quickly added to the line. WWII caused a pause in production. After the war the box color changed from silver to green, and Penguin kits were also marketed in the USA. Production ended in 1950. Frog quickly expanded and released the Red, Orange, Black, Green, Gold Token, Spin and Comet series as well as Trail Blazers and several others. It is noteworthy that while most manufacturers in the 1940s/50 were making toy-like models, Frog attempted to make very realistic models. For example, 'detailing' kits with excessively large rivets was once very popular. Frog ignored this trend and continued to mold aircraft with fine panel lines and no rivets. As a result, Frog kits can be built into very realistic replicas. Production ended in the late 1970s, but Frog molds are still in use around the world.
