Pyro IJN Musashi Battleship - Table Top Navy, 1/1200, C392-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$25   

Small scale ship kit from the Table Top Navy series. Very nicely done kits for their time. Can be built full hull or waterline. Features propeller and shaft detail, separately molded turrets, stacks, many superstructure parts and more. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. Many of the Pyro kits came from Eagle (then Eaglewall) molds in England. Eaglewall went out of business around 1962 and Pyro acquired at least some of the molds. Pyro reissued some of these kits in the mid 1960s with AJ Rudisill artwork. Evidently the line was successful, as Pyro then cut some of their own molds and expanded the series significantly. The earlier issues have the full color artwork and a three digit part number. Later issues have a 'B' or 'C' in front of the three digit kit number; some have simplified box art that is a modification of the original Rudisill paintings by painting out most of the background. Pyro issued these kits into the late 1960 when Life-Like took over the molds. Some were reissued by Life-Like.

Pyro 1931 Alfa Romeo Gran Turismo 6C-1750cc, 1/32, C320-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$32   

1966 Pyro issue from original molds. Ideal builder- the box is rough but the kit and instructions inside are mint. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many kit subjects based on historical significance instead of popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to, such as this Alfa, which was in the collection of John C. Silva Jr of the Silva Auto Engineering Shop in Massachusetts. Features detailed chassis, complete motor and interior and a removable hood. Molded in red and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions.
