The USS Milwaukee was wrecked off Eureka, CA on December 14, 1916, while attempting to tow the stranded submarine H-3. The decision to employ Milwaukee, instead of a commercial salvage firm with much experience in local waters, has been the subject of historical criticism. H-5 was later successfully recovered and returned to the Fleet.

Revell Sears Buggy Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H45-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$44   

1953 early issue molded in green plastic. This is from the issues produced by Gowland & Gowland as it carrier their 'balloon' logo on the side. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

IM Lockheed F-94C Starfire - Bagged, 1/56, 1

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

$36   

Still factory sealed. Includes color decals and instructions. This kit was initially a puzzle to me. First, the kit is not listed in any of my guides. On first inspection, it appears to be the rare Revell first mold F-94 from the one piece box with no landing gear and one-piece wings. However, it could not be - it has the rivet detail of the 2nd Revell issue- but not the split upper & lower wings and added landing gear. It has come to light that Lincoln, from Hong Kong copied the 2nd edition Revell F-94 and left off the 'details' and changed the base to the typical Lincoln base. Plastic kit production was a sideline for Lincoln, and when production ended, the molds moved to Kader, also in Hong Kong. Kader reissued the entire Lincoln line in the mid 1970s. When Kader discontinued production in the late 1970s, ATP Inc in the USA bought the remaining kits and perhaps some molds. Eventually IM obtained many Kader molds - perhaps from ATP - and this issue was made.

Lindberg Blue Devil Destroyer - (USS Melvin DD680 Fletcher Class) Motorized - First Issue, 1/125, 815M-1195

Rare, original 1950s issue. The box, which features Ray Gaedke art, has four solid corners, great color and gloss and light to moderate wear as shown. Three-foot long WWII Fletcher-class DD is designed for free & pattern running or easily converted to R/C. It can be programmed to do rectangles, figure 8, circle or go straight. It has very good detail for that time. Includes motor, gear box and gears and all running hardware. The kit has never been started.

Aurora Grumman F9F Panther Jet, 1/49, 22-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM+

$79   

Still factory sealed and in investment-grade 'near mint+' condition. Dated 1960, but from about 1964 due to the logo variation. These molds are from one of Aurora's first two kits - the F9F and F-90. Aurora simply went out and purchased the early Hawk F9F and F-90 kits and copied them almost exactly. Reportedly more than a few tense words were exchanged between Aurora and the Mate's brothers at the Chicago Toy Fair when the kits were unveiled. Hawk became suspicious from that point on and on some kits they reportedly used rivets to spell "HAWK" in morse code.

Topping Martin SM-68 Titan ICBM - Factory Model, 1/68

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$1400

No restoration has been done and there are no flaws. The original base in in the same condition. The rocket separates into 'stages' as the actual missile did. Titan I was the first USA multi-stage Intercontinental Ballistic Missile. Designed in 1955, it was originally a back-up for the Atlas program. Titan was larger than Atlas and was also seen as an early space launch vehicle. Titan was stored in hardened underground silos. The arrival of solid fuel Titan II and Minuteman I missiles in 1963 made Titan I obsolete. The follow-on, Titan II became a major workhorse in the space program and served well as a heavy lift ICBM.
