MPM Hansa Brandenburg W-29 Of Friedrich Christiansen - (W.29), 1/72, 72058

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Accurate model of Friedrich Christiansen's aircraft. Includes photetched parts. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Ob erleutnant zu See Friedrich Christiansen is one of the best known German Naval Aviators. He was born on December 12, 1879 in Wyk-on-Fohr and the son of a sea captain. He was captivated by flying and earned his pilot's license in March of 1914. He became and instructor and was called up as a naval aviator in August at the 'old' age of 35. In September 1917 he took command of the Naval Air Station Zeebrugge and by December 11 he was awarded the Blue Max (Pour le Merite). Friedrich flew over 440 operational missions including raids on Dover and Ramsgate, rescue sorties, shipping attacks and more. He achieved at least 13 victories - including one submarine and one airship, but some sources credit him with as many as 27 victories. At least six of his victories were achieved as the commanding observer of the HB W.29. On July 4, 1918, he claimed two Felixstowe F2A flying boats as his first W.29 confirmed victories. After the war he rejoined the navy and became a pilot for Dornier, flying the world-famous DO-X, then easily the largest seaplane in the world. One of my relatives met the aircraft on it's South and North American tour. She was a waitress and she with a friend were selected to provide the food for a lunch on board the DO-X in Miami. The Germans contracted with the restaurant that employed her for the food, but wanted it served on the special and unique DO-X china, made just for this aircraft. My relative and her friend 'liberated' two medium size bread plates - one of which I received back in the late 1990s. Always underpowered and short on range, the flying boats were retired but one survived the scrap yard and found a home in the 1930s in the Berlin Air Museum, but it and the remaining china was destroyed in a Allied air raid.

Aurora Boeing 737 PSA, 1/72, 387

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

1974 block letter 'AURORA' logo issue. This is still the only 1/72 scale injection molded 737 kit to ever be made. Includes clear cockpit windows, full landing gear, display stand and a large PSA decal sheet. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: the decals are neatly cut in half because they were stored separately, flat in plastic, in a filing cabinet and in a climate controlled location- and they would not have fit unless cut as such. The box displays better than the 'good' rating but is graded as such because there are closed splits on the sides that are taped closed.

West Side Model Co D&RGW Mikado Class K-37 Brass Locomotive HOn3 Nakamura Seimjitsu KK - Lightly Weathered, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Beautiful brass locomotive and tender, hand-built in Japan by the renown Nakamura Seimitsu Co. Ltd. This one-owner model has been carefully stored in the original box, which includes all three pieces of factory foam in 'very good' condition. Under 14x magnification, the wheels show that it has been lightly run but very little. The factory paint and all lettering & numbers are beautiful but please this model has been 'lightly weathered' to professional standards. Two painted, correct scale figures have been added to the cab - that is the only other modification I can find. I believe them to be complete with no missing or broken parts; but please examine the photos for yourself. I have no narrow gauge track, so I am unable to test the locomotive, so it is sold "As Is." There is no paperwork present. Must be shipped insured.

Revell USS Ward DD139 Four Stack Destroyer (Wickes Class), 1/240, 5023

All the parts are still in the factory sealed bag and includes decals, flag sheet and instructions. NOTE: the flag sheet is stuck to the instructions and the decal are intact but moisture damaged. The Ward was a Wickes-class 1247-ton destroyer launched in 1918 . After serving as a station ship during the first trans-Atlantic flights of NC-1, NC-3 and NC-4 in 1919, she came back to the Pacific and was decommissioned there in July 1921. In 1920 the ship received the hull number DD-139. On the morning of December 7, 1941, the Ward was on patrol just outside Pearl Harbor. She spotted and sank Japanese Midget Submarine and fired the first US shots of WWII. The Ward saw extensive activity through the war as a transport in most of the major battle areas of the Pacific as a fast transport. During the Leyte operations she took a Kamikaze hit amidship and the crew had to abandon her. The destroyer USS O'Brien had to sink the Ward with gunfire. The Commanding Officer of the O'Brien was William W. Outerbridge, who had been in command of Ward off Pearl Harbor on that fateful day. The date that she was sunk was December 7th, 1944, three years to the day of her opening shots.
