Revell Lockheed Electra II Los Angeles Dodgers, 1/115

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$225   

SALE! Very rare. Special issue of the Dodgers Team Aircraft made by Revell just for the concessions dealer 'Danny Goodman' for the LA Dodgers, Inc. I purchased this kit along with the Revell factory shipping carton. This carton was originally sold to Union 76 Service Station #3459, located at 12080 Ventura Blvd in Studio City California. The case was shipped directly from Revell in Los Angeles to the Union Oil Station; the gas station owner's son confirmed this. (Somehow Danny Goodman was bypassed in the transaction!). The kit is fresh from the original shipping carton with no more wear than you would expect. The box is in investment grade 'near mint' condition with the only flaws being some yellowing and light wear on the paper label. Inside, the kit is factory new. All parts, decals and instructions are still sealed in the Revell factory bag. The kit includes a wonderful photo of the 1963 Dodgers - World's Champions!

Large profile-scale flying model designed to fly a full stunt pattern on 65 miles per hour with a .09 engine. This is a highly prefabricated kit designed for strong, easy construction. Features pre-shaped hollow balsa wings with airfoil, die cut balsa and plywood, all necessary metal hardware, fully finished wheels, full size plans with complete building instructions and full color decals. The kit has never been started. The small parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed (larger wood parts and sheets of wood) have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. Please note that the decals have bug damage to the backing paper but the actual transfers are undamaged. The plans have light, even bug damage as well which will not affect building the kit. Berkeley is a very famous manufacture of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Revell SMS Seeadler (Sea Eagle) German WWI Commerce Raider, 1/232, H382-298

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$179   

Rare 1960 hardbox first issue with great John Steel artwork. This is a kit of a fantastic subject -the famous WWI sailing commerce raider of Count Felix Von Luckner. Very well detailed kit for that time. Full hull kit is molded in gray, brown and black and includes rigging thread and full rigging instructions. The kit has never been started. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes flags and instructions. The SMS Seeadler was a unique WWI raider in that it was not designed to elude the British blockade and break out to sea...it was designed to pass right through the blockade within full view of the British before attacking allied shipping around the world. No detail was overlooked in the Seeadler's preparation, right down to a Norwegian-speaking crew. The plan went perfectly - and the Seeadler passed inspection at the British Blockade. Her non-threatening appearance helped her in an active and colorful raiding career that nearly went around the world. I highly recommend reading any of several books that you can find about this ship. Von Luckner himself became quite a celebrity for his exciting exploits.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

$110   

Still factory tape sealed. Very rare in this condition. This is a one owner kit purchased new on 9/6/65 at Mr. Wiggs in Lexington, KY. One piece of factory tape is intact, the other one fell off while going through the kits. As you know, it is impossible to open this box (because of the height and width) without breaking both pieces of tape. Early issue from the late 1950s or early 1960s. Excellent kit with detailed engine and compartment, opening hood, full interior, opening doors, optional supercharged engine version, detailed suspension and a very large number of custom parts.

Aurora Hiller Hornet Ram-Jet Helicopter, 1/48, 501-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$650   

Very rare. Although dated 1956, this is the artwork copyright date only. This issue sports the oval logo with the sunburst but no "Famous Fighters" so this hardbox probably dates roughly 1960 and the last issue for this model. This is from the old Helicopters for Industry molds that Aurora acquired in the mid 1950s. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
