Airfix Boeing 314 Pan Am Clipper - 'Dixie' or BOAC 'Berwick', 1/144, 1415-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

1960s Craftmaster issue in remarkable condition. Very well molded and detailed older kit with decals for both aircraft. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. In the 1930s Pan Am was a household word in the USA for their romantic foreign routes and the glamorous 'China Clippers' that crossed the Pacific Ocean, stopping at such ports as Wake Island. Pan Am's attention soon turned to the Atlantic. Since non-stop service would be needed, a new aircraft was designed. The Boeing 314 was chosen. This huge flying boat started flying the Atlantic mail in 1939 with a trip over 26 hours long. Before the war, the 314 fleet flew the Pacific, Atlantic and other routes. The airliner was a palace compared to the cramped jets and limited service of today. The flight deck compared to the bridge of a ship and housed 6 crew. It was connected to the passenger cabin by a spiral staircase. The luxurious cabins were divided into 5 standard compartments, each seating 10 passengers, a dining salon for 14, a special compartment for four and a deluxe bridal suite. 74 could be carried on day trips and 40 when sleeping quarters for all passengers was required. Chefs prepared gourmet meals while passengers lounged in deeply cushioned wicker chairs and enjoyed a grand view of the scenery from about 5,000 feet. The age of the Clippers ended shortly after WWII when land planes could operate at much higher speeds than the flying boats.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

1979 John Steel artwork Lindberg issue from original Pyro molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity.

The model includes tan and clear parts, detailed (molded) chassis and complete interior. Ideal for slot car conversion, and Pyro originally advertised it that way. Never started.

Orange Crush-Revell 1908 Buick 10 Rumble, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacturer. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The D-500 was the result of Programme C-1 in 1932 that was destined to replace the obsolete French fighter fleet. In November of 1933 the D-500 was chosen from the competitors, and this established the reputation of the Dewoitine company. The D-500 was made entirely of metal and fitted with a Hispano-Suiza 12 cylinder engine and a turbo-compressor. It was armed with 2 Vickers machine guns on the cowling and 2 Darne machine guns on the wings. The D-501 was a variant of the D-500 that arried a motorized cannon. The HS-59 20mm cannon and the 2 Mac 34 nacelles replaced the weapons of the '500. The propeller was also changed and lost the streamlined nose cone. Total production of both types was 257 aircraft. At the start of WWII, 43 D-501 fighters were still in front-line service.
