Engineered to be motorized with spinning prop and working wing landing light. Battery compartment is cleverly hid on the lower side of the fuselage behind the cabin. Also comes with optional parts for non-motorized version. Never started. Inventoried and the aircraft is complete with all parts, decals and instructions but NOTE: missing display stand. Also NOTE: one 1/2 of the vertical fin is broken off at the base. The part is present and fits back perfectly for an easy repair. Tilt (and also Marui) did not furnish the kit with the motor or light; they had to be purchased separately. The motor is a common Mabuchi FA-13 and any small 1.5v railway light would work.

Revell USS Growler Pacific Fleet Submarine, 1/220, H436

Sold   

1972 issue with fantastic box art. Well detailed kit for that time and 21 inches long when assembled. The kit has never been started.

On February 7, 1943, Growler was patrolling on the surface in the Pacific when an enemy vessel was spotted close aboard. The enemy changed course to ram, but Gilmore torpedoed her, leaving her crippled in the water. However, the ship opened fire with .60 caliber machine gun fire from close range, mortally wounding Commander Gilmore. His dying words were 'Take her down'. He remained on the bridge while the sub crash-dove to safety. For this he received the Navy Cross, Gold Star, and was recommended for a posthumous Medal of Honor.

Sterling Zero A6M3 Model 32 Hamp Drops Belly Tank in Flight - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C, A15

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold   

Still factory sealed and in investment-grade 'mint' condition. 24 inch wingspan model for RC, free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically dropping the centerline belly tank in flight, color decals, high-grade die-cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, clear vacuform canopy, plastic wheels, finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and notes on RC or control line conversion. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they were very complete.
