Heller Kurun 'Round the World' Norwegian Cutter, 1/60, 80614

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Very nicely detailed large-scale full-hull kit with billowing sails. Features detailed deck with full fittings, rigging instructions and display stand. All parts are still factory sealed. With instructions, vac sails and decals. The Kurun was the result of the dream of a lover of the sea, Jacques-Yves le Tourmelin. As a young child, he had sworn to go around the world solo under sail. Jacques began construction of the Kurun immediately after World War II. In spite of the scarcity of raw materials, the ship was floated and ready for it's first trials on February 26, 1948. He set the sails for his epic journey on September 19, 1948 at 4 pm. On July 7, 1952, after 45 months sailing, the battle-scared Kurun arrived at the harbor of Le Croisic after circumnavigating the globe.

MPC Dodge A-100 Deora Show Car or Custom Camper by Alexander Brothers, 1/25, 6221

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

From 1987. Who can forget the Deora show car? My first exposure was a Mattel 'Hot Wheel' Deora, and the car's image seemed to be everywhere for quite a while. Mike and Larry, the Alexander Brothers, ran a well known and respected customizing shop in the late 1960s. Upon seeing the cab-forward Dodge A-100 Utility Truck, they had an inspiration. What they created was a timeless classic from a true 'ugly duckling.' To top it, the Deora show car was a completely functional car, not just a 'trailered' vehicle. Kit includes custom anodizing gold paint to simulate the original finish of the Deora. Can be built in one of two versions - the one on the box top or the enclosed version with a camper rear. Features complete interior, opening doors, detailed 6 cylinder engine and full decals. Never started. The chrome parts are still factory sealed. The yellow plastic parts are open and inventoried complete. With decals and instructions. There is a closed crack on the lower body headlight surround (an easy fix). I would suggest putting the headlight bucket in first, then make the repair as that would greatly simplify and strengthen it.

Aurora Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, 1/156, 491

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Dated 1961. This issue has the oval 'sunburst' logo, so the actual issue date is probably the mid 1960s. The hardbox has very nice color and gloss, four solid corners and light wear as shown.

United Sumpter Valley No. 250 2-6-6-2 Brass Locomotive And Tender HOn3 Narrow Gauge - Pacific Fast Mail, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very rare and in amazing condition. Beautiful brass locomotive and tender, hand-built in Japan by the famous United Scale Models. This one-owner model has always been carefully stored in the original box. Inside, it is like new. The locomotive and tender are still wrapped in the original plastic and all three pieces of factory foam in 'excellent+' condition. Under 14x magnification I cannot see but the slightest if any wear on the wheels, so I would grade it as 'never run' although it was test run at United before shipping. There are no modifications and after careful examination I believe this model to be complete and with no broken parts; but please examine the photos for yourself! Ask me if you need something checked more closely. 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 1900 Packard Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H33

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

Sold   

In rare, investment grade condition. This is old hobby shop stock that has never been offered for retail sale until now. 1952 first year issue with the box is in amazing 'near mint+' condition and inside, the kit has never been started. All parts are still factory sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag. With instructions. Molded in bright red and black plastic. 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.
