The excellent performance allowed the existing 174s to be used extensively with little losses. After the Armistice, it continued to operate with the Vichy forces. Some saw action along side the Allies during TORCH in North Africa.

Dolphin Scire Assault Version Adua Class 600 Italian Navy Submarine, 1/400, 003

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Still factory sealed. Very rare. Dolphin made the only kit of Italy's most renowned submarine, famous for the amazing attacks in Gibraltar and Alexandria harbors using 'Chariots.' This is a resin, metal and PE model kit of the attack version. And thanks to Dusty Rhodes who wrote that Scire was lost to depth charge attack by HMT Islay, and shore battery gunfire, in Haifa Bay, 10 August 1942. In 1984, a joint Italian-Israeli team recovered a hull section and artifacts, which were shipped to Italy and incorporated in a memorial to the boat and her crew. The Gibraltar operation is interestingly depicted, with a degree of artistic license, in the 1959 docudrama film, The Silent Enemy.

Aurora Regulus II Guided Missile with Launcher, 1/48, 378-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+


Rare. 1958 release of this famous kit featuring classic Jo Kotula boxart. The large 1/48 scale missile comes with a fully operational scale launcher. Please note the very rare 'Parents' Magazine' golden sticker at the left center. When the agreement with Parents' Magazine was approved, Aurora wanted to implement it immediately. Until new boxes could be made with the seal, they used these very shiny gold and black stickers. The model features a well detailed missile with lower booster and the mobile launcher with good suspension detail, valves boxes and covers, tow bar, servicing and access platforms with railings, elevating main pad and three figures. Molded in the correct deep gloss red, silver and dark blue plastic. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts. Includes decals and instructions in 'very good' condition. One small instrument is neatly broke off the pitot tube at the base, but it is present for a easy repair. This kit must be shipped insured. The Aurora "Missile Line" is legendary. In the late 1950s, the first missile model kits sold briskly, so Aurora and Revell both planned extensive lines. However, the missile modeling craze disappeared as quickly as it started. Models that were in the works were canceled or completed if they were far enough along. Those that were completed were fine efforts but sold poorly and had very short lives, making them rare collector items today.

Competition Models Inc Sal Taibi's Starduster-X- 46 Inch Wingspan .049 Gas Powered Free Flight Model

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Sale Pending
Email for availability.

From the early 1960s. Large wingspan kit for .02 to .074 engines. This is one of the famous Sal Taibi's National award winning designs. Sal was one of the early 'Kings Of Gas Free Flight' and a very gifted designer. The model is from the 1950s. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed clear bag; the other parts have been inventoried complete with the plans. Designed for 'Sniffing Thermals,' the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and powered models (most all driven by Brown engines) took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all in a stable fashion and without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.
