The Ship Model Shop USS Arleigh Burke DDG51 Guided Missile Destroyer - 22 Inches Long, 1/250

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$245   

Very rare and highly detailed model from Allen Baker's legendary Ship Model Shop. This was the last kit he issued, and there are two personally signed letters from Mr. Baker included with the kit. Very high quality kit features 90% factory finished hardwood hull, perfectly cut and crisp wood superstructure parts, a vast number of cast metal fittings, a large sheet of photoetched brass details, wood, plastic and metal stock as required, a beautiful set of dry transfers designed by Mr. Baker and custom made by Chartpak. Paperwork includes instructions, plans, sales material, color photos and various photocopies of plans. Carefully inventoried against the included parts list and NOTE: missing (2) of (16) small bitts and the (4) flat Aegis Antenna Enclosures; very easily made by cutting them from sheet styrene. All original paperwork is included but please NOTE: Mr. Baker had difficulty in releasing this final kit. So the instructions are generic (from the FFG7 kits) and a set of assembled plans. He apologizes in the letter for the standard of documentation. I only recommend this model if you are comfortable building a ship from plans.

Hobby Bereznyak-Isayev BI-1 - Soviet Rocket Fighter - Bagged, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$19   

Limited run Russian model injection molded in brown plastic and with an injection molded clear canopy. There is little flash and fine raised and recessed detail. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. Please note that the kit did not come with decals and the instructions are inside the header. 'BI' stood for Blizhnii Istrebitel, which was 'close-range fighter' in Russian. Obviously, it also stood for the last names of the designers. The program was the Soviet Union's effort to produce a low cost rocket interceptor. The airplane flew and flew well, but it was plagued by engine issues, corrosion from nitric acid, and eventually tail flutter at high speeds that caused the loss of the most experienced test pilot, Grigory Yakovlevich Bakhchivandzhi. The early development started in 1938, with the first flights in 1940. The aircraft underwent a series of engine improvements and was still testing through 1945. The aircraft never entered series production. Bi-1 through BI-9 were built.

Revell Convair B-36 Giant Bomber - Pre-'S' Issue, 1/184, H205-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$149   

1954 issue of this classic kit. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear and with the famous clear 'Revelving Swivel Base.' The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: the box would grade higher than 'excellent' but there is a very, very light stain below the front of the aircraft. It is difficult to see. This kit has an interesting history. The first issue came out in the 'short' hardbox that had the full version of this artwork with a port and ocean scene in the background. The first version also had the one-piece stand arm and the instructions that reflected that. The second issue had the same artwork, but with a completely different background that gave better contrast. There may be a 'one-piece' stand arm version in this revised artwork, but I have yet to see one.

Billy Mitchell arranged to have the ex-WWI German Battleship Ostfriesland used as target practice for 6 MB2s, and the ship sank in 25 minutes. The model is from the early 1960s and was an excellent kit for that time. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Maircraft Bellanca Cruisair - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, S-5

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$32   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work. This kit features a full size plan with instructions steps, fuselage that is about 80% cut, profile cut parts (wings, etc), wood stock as required and a small paper envelope of details. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes excellent step-by-step text and illustrated building instructions and full-size three-view plans with fuselage and wing templates.

Revell V-2 with Trailer and Launcher - History Makers Issue, 1/69, 0560

$58   

1994 re-release of the 1982 release- which itself is from the very popular 1960s original molds.

The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. Please note that Revell lists this kit as 1/54 but I have noted it as 1/69 because the built missile measures 8" tall and the actual missile is 45.9 feet tall. That comes out to be 1/69.
